It works, fast RAM

Summary: It says on the product page that it only does 1.65v but the truth is it's 1600MHz memory without having to pump extra voltage - there's SPD profiles for DDR3-1333 and DDR3-1600 and then XMP for DDR3-1600 at tighter latencies, which uses the 1.65v. I can't really tell a difference between CAS9 and CAS11, so I am just using the standard default DDR3-1600 SPD profile in my system. Still, it's cheap and can be super low-latency if that's your bag.
Summary: I installed this kit on a board running an AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE. The ram is technically rated faster than my processor, but with some adjustment to the RAM timings, it runs very well. Also, the aesthetics of the modules is very nice. The HyperX brand appears to be a very decent line of tech.
Summary: This RAM is absolutely amazing, it's a great overclocker, very speedy, and has amazing build quality. I'd easily recommend this to somebody. It has a little bit of weight and feels very rigid, it's very low profile and it gets warm under heavy load, it's not an issue. Anybody who wants this RAM, go for it! You won't regret it one bit.
Great value but you're better off with 1.5v for OC

Summary: Kingston HyperX Black (KHX16C9B1BK2/8X) specifications: - DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) - Timing 9-9-9 - Cas Latency 9 - Voltage 1.65V If you're planning on overclocking your system, you might want to invest a bit more $ into memory that runs on 1.5v such as the Corsair Vengeance (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10), however if you're not these are fantastic for their value.
Summary: Hey, those are 2 sticks of ram that work, what else to add? 4+4 gb, multichannel at 1600mhz, my PC doesn't even utilize their resource to the fullest even when i play some videogames, that's how it's supposed to be. No problem with those. Good Buy.
Summary: I bought this item on sale, and for Kingston's outstanding customer service from my previous purchase. Kingston RMA is extremely fast, it took me 5 business days when my previously purchased RAM failed. This RAM is a BEAST! I was very happy with XMP profile that took it to 1600MHz 9-9-9-27-1T u1.65V, but I wanted to squeeze out little bit more performance. By manually setting the timings and voltage, I was able to achieve 2000MHz 10-11-12-33-1T u1.63V.
Pros: Often on sale, overclocks well beyond 1600MHz. Excellent customer service.
