Kingston Announces HyperX Red as a Permanent Product

"HyperX red was a tremendous success when it was launched earlier this year as a limited edition product," said Kingston's Mark Tekunoff. "We decided to make it a permanent part of the HyperX family because demand was so great. The vivid color, fast speeds and excellent value make it perfect for any system, especially red, gray and black schemed motherboards."

The company is offering the modules in 4 GB single modules and 8 GB kits at 1600 MHz and 1333 MHz with 9-9-9-27 and 10-10-10-30 timings, in both 1.65 volt and 1.5 volt. The devices are compatible with Intel's with P55, H67, P67, Z68, Z77and H61 chipsets, as well as AMD's A75, A87, A88, A89, A78 and E35 chipsets.

    azraaRAM Manufacturers: Y U NO Give us black PCBs >_>CUZ YO black PCBs be expensive. And why bother if it is going to be covered with a heat spreader?

    Also... Kingston sold HyperX with red spreaders? News to me. Needa get my head outta the sand.

    Edits: IN CASE YO WANTED TO KNO..... Technically the color of the PCB is not actually the PCB itself, but the color of the solder mask used. The real color of a PCB is more like a baby-poop brown. Why they traditionally use a green solder mask... I have no idea. But it probably was because either green was cheaper to produce originally, or the military required green from some reason. Now they can do any color of the rainbow, but I betcha the traditional green is the cheapest option.

    Pretty similar to HyperX blu.. I guess color is the more important role here.

    Green fab + Red heat spreader = Heavy vomit from my side.
    I've actually been a definite Kingston fan for a long time, but now I have no more doubts about the fact that achromatic people are working in that company, and looks like there are a lot of them...

    Red RAM heat spreader but compatible with Intel and no AMD? You're doing it wrong Kingston!

    AMD A87, A88, A89, A78, what?

    I thought there were only the A75/55, plus no AMD 990FX

    Who cares about color? Personally, I'll take the best performing ram at a price i can afford whether it is pink, grey, or fecal matter. I bet you can run this ram on AMD 9xx but you may have to adjust timings manually. If you try it, don't be surprised if it doesn't work.
