The 1GB kit from Kingston we have just reviewed turned out a very interesting product. These memory modules are the first DDR2 SDRAM overclocker’s kit built from Infineon chips. These chips determined all the peculiarities of the tested memory.
According to our testing results, Kingston HyperX KHX7200D2K2/1G appear slightly behind their competitors from other memory manufacturers. Although they are a top of the line solution from Kingston available at this point, the alternative solutions from other memory market tend to be faster. With Infineon chips Kingston didn’t manage to make its memory work at 1GHz frequency. Other memory market, such as Corsair and OCZ, do offer 1GHz-ready solutions, however, their products use Micron chips. Moreover, the memory modules we tested today proved unable to work with aggressive timings. So, we cannot recommend Kingston HyperX KHX7200D2K2/1G as an optimal solution for those who hunt for high frequencies and low timings.
However, we shouldn’t forget about some indisputable advantages of the Kingston HyperX memory. They boast excellent compatibility with different motherboards and support low voltage.
So, we can conclude that Kingston HyperX KHX7200D2K2/1G will hardly become the choice for extreme overclocking fans. However, it doesn’t at all mean that Kingston made “bad” memory. Kingston HyperX KHX7200D2K2/1G is a good product, suitable for commencing overclockers and mainstream overclocking-friendly systems.
