Re: Kingston HyperX Beast 16GB DDR3 2400Mhz RAM

Design:

Messing around with RAM specs is difficult for everyone unless and until you are a pro overclocker. They know well the limit of hardware. If you are a gamer and love to keep your system updated always with the best product then Kingston HyperX Beast is an ideal solution. The product that we had tested offered us satisfactory output. You have to worry less about the clock rate, or latency when you are using Kingston Beast. Things are well optimized to deliver you the best output. We had tested Beast KHX21C11T3K2/16X DRAM kit. A pair of 8GB RAM @ 2400 MHz each. In terms of look HyperX Beast is unique. A complete black body that is made up of maximum thermal dissipation elements, allowing the RAM to stay cooler while overclocking or on extreme usage.

The RAM kit supports XMP profile. Black heat spreader over the body lets the RAM to stay cooler when you are processing a high amount of data. There is very less chance of bottleneck. All you need is a right system for it. If you are using this RAM on an old pc then you might not be able to utilize its maximum potential.

Performance:

After adding this 16GB RAM on my pc I was able to play games at higher resolution. I was using Kingston HyperX Blue previously. Those were also good for gaming, but after adding HyperX Beast the system output was much better. On a 64bit system you will able to use the entire physical memory. The RAM by default ran on 667.3 MHz which I think is the optimal startup point. And you can simply push that upto 2400Mhz. Below you can see an image of the benchmarking test. The test show you the memory copy, memory read, memory write and latency speed. This looks impressive. It will boost your gaming output and also help you to go ahead with high overclocking. System performance is quite smoother once you have this sticks installed in your system. Being a high end RAM surely the cost is high, but these kits are value for money product. To push my system more I had installed multiple virtual machine on my pc. At one side I tested Mac and on the other Windows 8.1. Things went really fine after allotting 2GB RAM to each of them. From no angle I found that Kingston is overcharging. There are some other brands which are cheaper, and have a bit similar features, but I am not really sure about the output. There are various benchmarking test already provided on the web which shows Kingston HyperX Beast a leading performer.
