Kingston HyperX DDR 370 MHz SDRAM - 2GB

Four 512MB DDR 370 MHz (PC3000) synchronous dynamic RAM modules provide a total of 2 GB of physical memory.

KHX3000/512 - 512MB 64M x 64-Bit PC3000 - CL2 184-Pin DIMM

The components on this module include sixteen 32M x 8-bit (8M x 8-bit x 4 Bank / 185MHz, 5.4ns) DDR370 SDRAM in TSOP packages. This 184-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers and requires +2.5V.

"If Speed is what you need, HyperX memory modules are specially engineered and tested for higher speeds and for system overclocking. Unlike other gamer modules, each of Kingston's memory chips are custom-packaged and tested at their rated speeds. This means that every HyperX memory chip is verified to reliably support the top speed of 333MHz to 434MHz on high-end Advantest memory testers before they are included on premium quality HyperX memory modules.

Kingston HyperX memory is designed based on the latest DDR specifications available, and is 100% tested at
Kingston's flagship factories. Plus, these Kingston modules come with the standard Kingston lifetime warranty and toll-free Tech Support. Built with the best-quality components, Kingston HyperX is competitively priced and is the choice for the serious gamer."
