What's the difference between Kingston HyperX RAMs?

I'm between HyperX memories Blu, Genesis, Predator and Beast. I can't really see the difference apart from looks, they even cost the same. So what is the difference between them?

Generally the look and physical size (height of the heatsink and whatnot).

There may be minor differences in the timings, but all should behave similarly.

Eh sorry I replied late, but I saw on their site that HyperX Predator can reach 2666mhz while Beast can 2400. Does it mean Predator is better?

Not necessarily better. Just designed and tested at higher speeds.

Overclocking memory is pretty much pointless though as you don't get any real benefit from doing it.

They are both solid kits.

So which one would you buy?

If similar prices I would go with the Predator, but if the is a large difference the Beast will work very well.

I also prefer the design of the Predator's, I don't know if you care about that.

Thanks man! The prices are same here I will go with Predator.
