Kingston, a well know brand in memory segment and well known among system builders and enthusiasts for their quality and reliable products. Kingston HyperX memory product line with wide range of products is fulfills the memory bandwidth needs of gamers and extreme high-end desktop users for long.

The HyperX Savage memory is quite popular since the DDR3 version, but now with the Intel X99 platform and Intel 6th Generation Skylake processors, DDR4 is in the mainstream and HyperX Savage DDR4 memory is ready with aggressive timings and fast speeds up to 3000MHz for faster video editing, 3D rendering and gaming. Also HyperX Savage is backed by a lifetime warranty, free technical support and legendary reliability.

Today we are reviewing the performance of two 8GB sticks from the HyperX Savage 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 (Model HX430C15SB2K4/32) 1.35V Memory Kit with dual XMP profile one at 2666 with lowered timings and second at 3000 MHz with 15-17-17-39 2T timings.

Let’s see what Kingston offers with this DDR4 kit.

Features

Low latency and fast speeds deliver superior performance. - HyperX® Savage DDR4 memory offers an unbeatable combination of fast speeds and aggressive timings to complement Intel’s 2, 4, 6 or 8 core processors for faster video editing, 3D rendering, gaming and AI processing. With speeds of up to 3000MHz and latencies of CL12–CL15, it’s optimised for Intel’s 100 series chipset and X99 chipset motherboards and features easy overclocking with no need for manual timing adjustments in BIOS..

  • Speeds of up to 3000MHz and low latencies deliver exceptional DDR4 performance
  • Intel XMP-ready profiles are optimised for Intel 100 series chipset and X99 motherboards
  • Lower power consumption than DDR3
  • Asymmetrical, stylish die-cast aluminium, low-profile heat spreader

Low latency for exceptional DDR4 performance — HyperX Savage DDR4 offers a superior combination of fast speeds of up to 3000MHz and aggressive timings with latencies of CL12–CL15. It complements Intel’s 2, 4, 6 or 8 core processors for faster video editing, 3D rendering, gaming and AI processing

Optimised for Intel’s 100 series and X99 chipsets — Built-in Intel XMP profiles are optimised for Intel 100 series chipsets and X99 motherboards. Users can easily overclock their platforms simply by selecting a profile, with no need for manual timing adjustments in BIOS

Lower power consumption compared to DDR3 — HyperX Savage DDR4 memory has lower power consumption than DDR3, with 1.2V or 1.35V only for all parts. Its lower power requirement results in less heat, higher reliability and a cooler and quieter PC

Die-cast aluminum low-profile heat spreader — Made from high-quality die-cast aluminium, HyperX Savage DDR4 provides enhanced thermal dissipation for greater reliability. Its low profile helps avoid clearance issues with CPU coolers, and its asymmetrical design and diamond-cut finish stand out in the crowd
