If color coordination is an important part of your gaming rig, then Kingston has a new option for you. We learned about Kingston's HyperX Red Limited Edition memory modules earlier this month, but we finally got to go eyes-on for the new color. Yes, it's for pure aesthetics, but if you're building a new system and you have a red-themed motherboard -- like the ROG series from Asus -- it's worth a look.
For those who want their memory to match their motherboards, the HyperX Red is a good option that's available in 8GB kits and 4GB single modules at 1600MHz and 1333MHz, in both 1.65v and 1.5v, fully Intel XMP ready.
