Kingston Rolls Out HyperX RAM with Black PCB

Kingston is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its HyperX products by releasing a number of HyperX memory kits printed on a black PCB. On top of this, they will also pack black heatspreaders. Just when we were getting used to the blue heatsinks and green PCBs on Kingston's HyperX memory, eh?

Kingston will release two "black" memory kits. First is the ordinary HyperX modules. These will be no different from the previous blue modules we're used to, except that the PCB will be black along with a heatspreader that states that the colour of the modules themselves is black. These will come in single DIMM packages of either 4 GB or 8 GB, or dual-channel kits that go from 8 GB to 16 GB, with speeds of either 1333 MHz or 1600 MHz. The HyperX Beast modules, which make part of the Predator series, will come in dual and quad-channel kits with capacities that range from just 8 GB up to 64 GB, with speeds that go up to 2400 MHz. 

"Our customers and fans have asked us to come out with HyperX memory featuring black PCBs to better match their system designs," said Larry Yang, HyperX business manager, Kingston. "We are able to match good looks with high performance. The black on black combination allows for easy pairing with any color component on the market."
