Street Price: £73 RRP (at time of review)

Kingston are a company that are associated with all manner of storage products be it SSD, NAND flash products. They are however perhaps best known for their memory products, especially the extreme end of the memory performance market. Those who like to overclock and demand the very best performance products will therefore be familiar with Kingston's HyperX branding which is carried through the entire range of Kingston products.

It is one such product we have for review today. The aptly named Predator kit hopes to hunt down the best memory kits out there, rip them to shreds and move on to it's next victim. You would therefore believe that the Predator was incredibly expensive. You would however be wrong in this assumption because thanks to the plummet in memory IC pricing, buying a top end memory kit is now within reach of us all. With this in mind we have chosen to deliver this review now, when memory prices are rock bottom to give you the low down on whether the Predator kit is worth hunting down or one to be evaded. Read on to find out...

CAUTION: Users may experience extreme motion sickness and/or complete disorientation from the extreme speeds typically reached with HyperX® Predator. It is not intended for small children, the faint-at-heart, people with a lot of time to complete a creative project or anyone who settles for less. Featuring frequencies up to 2666MHz and a new heat spreader for greater heat dissipation, it’s Intel XMP ready, compatible with all popular brands of motherboards and backed by legendary Kingston® reliability. We might even recommend a helmet.

We're reviewing the 16GB version of the Predator HyperX today, but the Predator kit is also available in 4GB, 8GB and 32GB with speeds up to 2666MHz.
