Not so long ago we started paying special attention to DDR2 SDRAM overclocker’s memory modules. As a result we have already offered you a couple of detailed reviews, where we discussed the features and performance of a few overclocker’s memory kits from the most popular memory makers of solutions targeted for hardware enthusiasts. Even though no one will argue about the fact that DDR2 technology is very promising, our reviews of DDR2 memory products didn’t win all the readers’ attention we would expect them to. Looks like most hardcore users interested in the latest and greatest stuff from the hardware market are still favoring AMD CPUs, which explains the relatively calm attitude towards DDR2 SDRAM. As you know this type of memory is currently used only by the contemporary Pentium 4 platforms.
However, in the nearest future the majority of users will change their mind and give due credit and attention to DDr2 SDRAM. There are a few reasons that are going to determine this change. One of the most important ones is the higher working speeds and broader availability of DDR2 products that are just around the corner. Moreover, the price of DDR2 memory modules has already decreased significantly, so that we cannot claim that this promising memory a whole lot more expensive than the standard DDR SDRAM any more.
All in all, there is not a single worthy reason for us to refrain from paying due attention to DDR2 SDRAM solutions, so we decided to enlarge our experience with these products and got down to testing a few corresponding solutions. Today we are going to tell you about overclocker’s memory modules from one very well-known memory maker – Kingston Technology Company. Before we start, I would like to mention that the memory products from this manufacturer are among the most widely spread memory solutions in the today’s market, so we regret sincerely that we didn’t manage to get to test this great memory earlier. Today we are going to correct our mistake and reveal a lot of interesting details about the Kingston HyperX KHX7200D2K2/1G memory. This article promises to be even more interesting because our today’s heroes from Kingston, the DDR2 overclocker’s memory modules, do not resemble the DDR2 overclocker’s solutions from Corsair, Crucial, Mushkin and OCZ, which we have already reviewed before (for details see our articles called DDR2 SDRAM for Overclocking Fans: Getting Beyond 1GHz and Crucial Ballistix PC2-8000 (BL2KIT6464AA1005) Memory Modules Review).
