Kingston Memory has announced intention to sell its discontinued memory modules at a special auction in order to help the poor. The company will put up for sale its PC3200 memory modules with advanced specifications.

 

The memory module maker offers discontinued Kingston HyperX DDR400 KHX3200 modules that have latency timings of CL2 2-2-6-1 with 2.6V voltage and provide headroom for system tweaking. The modules cannot be bought in the retail,  but the company is auctioning four 512MB kits (KHX3200K/512) and one 1GB (KHX3200K2/1G) kit. One 512-MB kit will be auctioned each week for the first four weeks, and the 1-GB kit will be auctioned the final week.

All proceeds will be donated to Community Service Programs, Inc. CSP is comprised of six model programs assisting over 80 000 persons a year, including abused children, victims of crime, struggling families, acting out adolescents, and people in need of mediation services.

Auctions will run from May 23, 2005 - June 4, 2005 and are open to U.S. residents only via Kingston’s web-site.
