High speeds, low latency, lower temps

Kingston's HyperX T1 Series DDR3-2000 3GB has fairly tight timings for it's speed and sports those distinctive blue heatspreaders that define Kingston's high speed RAM. The DIMM's can be yours for under $200, so if triple channel memory sounds very attractive, but you don't happen to have a 64bit OS, this might be an easy way for you to experience the benefits. If you still aren't sure it is worth it, check out Think Computers benchmarks to see the difference in bandwidth between dual channel and triple channel.
"In retrospect, the information that Louis had just received obviously was about the
Nehalem. After seeing the improvements that the i7 has over the Core 2, I can fully
understand his excitement. Today I will be looking at the result of Louis' excitement,
Kingston's HyperX DDR3-2000 3GB Triple Channel kit. These memory modules sport
beautiful new pin-fin heat spreaders and 9-9-9-27 timings at 1.65v. Will this Kingston
kit carry my new i7 920 to glory? Read on to see!"
