Soon after, Kingston quickly became one of the industry leaders in system memory technology and now has one of the most rigorous and largest testing procedures for memory modules which every single one of its memory kits goes through.

Rock solid

Bought this when I upgraded my system 18 months ago along with an MSI 990FXA-GD65 motherboard and AMD Phenom II 1100T. Works great, and runs flawlessly on the MSI board. Highly recommended

Sascha Humphrey 2013-01-11

Great Ram

One little niggle I have with this, the timing and serial no. sticker is on the side shown, so if you have an open rig, like I have, the sticker shows, apart from that the best ram ever, great speed, faster then some 1866 and 2000mhz mem!!!!

Daniel 2012-07-16


Fast shipping, great price. I installed it my PC started beeping then it came out to be that I didn't push in the RAM correctly, after that no problems :) 5/5

Dave P 2012-06-26

Great RAM

Absolutely reliable RAM and looks the business when it's in the machine. I wont be needing more than 8GB for my PC so this was right up my street. Got it at a great price too.

Jordan 2012-06-21


Awesome RAM. Arrived in time and came well packaged.

After installing these (without any problems) I noticed a good difference compared to my old default set. Worth it if you are in need of new memory.

Thanks OCUK.

Steve 2012-06-07

Best I have owned.

Got 8gb with my rig, bought another 8gb when it was

steve 2012-05-26


Having bought my system from oc'ers and having awesome service only natural to come back,I bought this upgrade from my 4gb blu ram and it arrived this morning, as always brilliant service and another happy purchase. The ram is really attractive gun metal cased and runs as you'd expect from kingston, fast and reliably.

Mark 2012-05-16


Just bought another pair of these for a total of 16GB RAM and I must say this stuff is great. Nice and low profile so no issues with larger HSFs like the Silver Arrow and my system is solid as a rock. :)

Jareth 2012-04-20

Awesome Memory

Bought 2 of these from the Gadget Show Live, will be honest I tend to not buy kingston RAM as Im just a bit picky over brand names, but I will be honest these RAM slots are phenomonal, my current set up is amazing, 16Gb of this RAM assisted in me scoring 157fps in Heaven 3.0 benchmark, this and that Gigabyte 77X UD3 motherboard here on overclockers. Granted I also have an Intel I7 2600k CPU and two Ati 6850's in crossfire. All in all

Love this RAM
Love Overclockers Service
and Love

Overclockers Price <3 :)

Highly Recommended RAM for its affordability and performance.

James 2012-01-18

Works and Good Price

I have never used bought Kingston before always opting for other brands.

This set came with a OC'd bundle and its performing well at 1600Mhz I have had no issues.

You also get piece of mind with a lifetime warranty.

Lewis 2012-01-15

Brilliant RAM for the price

Got this set at Christmas - it feels very solid, has good timings/speed, and has a low profile so it fits under any CPU cooler.

As a bonus I just got another 8GB on offer for

adam 2012-01-14

Great ram great price

What can i say picked this ram up on offer at 29.99 on two occassions and now have 16gb of very high qaulity ram for a very low price. it has heat spreaders but they are low so should fit under most tower coolers. Quick delievery from OcUK, and well protected during transit.

Jack 2012-01-07

sldsmkd 2011-12-27

Got a 2*4GB set a while back for my i5 2500K rig and not had a single problem with them. Just doubling up, at this price why not? :)

Ben 2011-12-26

Robert 2011-10-29


Not much to say apart from the system is very responsive, and excellent service from OCuk

Andy Mawby 2011-10-16

surprisingly good

Got this the last time it was on a special offer.

ollie 2011-08-01


Does what it says on the tin.

9-9-9-24, 1600mhz @ 1.5V (yes, 24, not 27, not that it matters),

No issues, running on a 890GPA-UD3H + 1055T@3.7GHz.

They look great too, and feel quality. Quite heavy, no plastic rubbish. Replacing a set of 4GB OCZ Reaper 12800C6.

Mike Baldwin 2011-07-12

Nice Ram,Nice price

delivery was quick ( next day).Price was very good.Using this with a new AMD Bulldozer board and an old 1055T 6 core processor.Overclocked the system and this ram is now running at 1665Mhz (9,9,9,27) on auto voltage.Not that it is relevent but the grey heatsinks go really well with the black of the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 Board

David Hillier 2011-03-10

Special Piece of Kit

I was reading this review (
KTE_SIGNATURE_BEGINS) so decided to try these out for myself with my new MSI P67A-GD65 Intel P67 Board and it works brilliantly....

The performance is fantastic and the product is well worth a buy

Guru Crook 2011-03-08

Brilliant Piece of Kit

Bought a few of these a few days ago, from someone else as Clockers did not have them, Brilliant news that clockers are now listing them at the home of all Gamers... Memory stable with default CAS rating at 9-9-9-27, which is very good...
