Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HyperX 8GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 HyperX Genesis Memory Module (Personal Computers)
I've been upgrading my ageing PC with new hard drives, graphics cards, and other things I can use on a new PC once I decide to upgrade the motherboard and CPU.
I have a Gigabyte EX58-UD5 motherboard. Officially, it doesn't support 8GB dimms, but after goggling for a bit, I found out some people had some success using 8GB dimms with X58 chipset motherboards, so I decided give it a go.
I ordered 3 of these, and they work like a charm. 24GB at 1600mghz, triple channel, along with my overclocked i7 980x.
Also, Amazon's description says 1.65volts, but according to Kingston, these actually run at 1600mghz with a mere 1.5v. So, I've manually set the timings to 9-9-9-24, voltage to 1.5v, and it's been working fine for over 1 day.
