Kingston Technology, the world's largest maker of memory modules, on Monday revealed its first memory sticks with heat-spreaders designed for liquid cooling. Even though the HyperX H2O modules do not come with maximum possible clock-speed out-of-the-box, they have higher overclocking potential than traditional devices.

"Water-cooling is desirable for its quiet operation and long-term reliability. We are bringing HyperX H2O to market as a solution for PC enthusiasts who want to build water-cooled systems using high quality Kingston products. HyperX H2O is a natural extension of Kingston's offerings for performance users. Our goal is for users of all levels and interests to have a Kingston product that meets their needs," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager at Kingston.

Kingston is debuting three HyperX DDR3 products in the new H2O line: two 4GB dual-channel kits (2000MHz, 2133MHz) and a 6GB triple-channel kit running at 2000MHz. H20 is available through Kingston's channel of authorized distributors, resellers, e-tailers and retailers.

OCZ Technology, another provider of high-end memory solutions, released its own memory modules with liquid cooling possibilities several years ago. However, the product line did not become popular.

"Kingston is also proud to announce that the original HyperX module is now called Genesis. The core of the HyperX family is the blu, Genesis and T1 series as they offer solutions in a range of densities and frequencies for enthusiasts of all levels. For system builders with specific requirements, H2O adds high performance in a water-cooling environment while LoVo is the perfect choice for an energy-efficient build," said Vincent Kim, HyperX product manager at Kingston.
