Memory-maker Kingston has taken the wraps off the latest addition to its enthusiast line of memory. Not only does the all-new HyperX H2O offer high speeds and tight timings, but the modules are ready to be hooked into a water-cooling loop to keep temperatures as low as they can go.
The manufacturer has announced that three different memory kits will soon be available. The first two are rated to run at speeds of 2,000MHz and come in 4GB (2x2GB) and 6GB (3x2GB) capacities - ostensibly aimed at dual- and triple-channel setups. While the smaller kit manages timings of 9-11-9 with 1.65V, the larger variant has been certified for slightly faster 9-10-9 timings at the same clock speeds and with the same voltage.
The third kit is again a 4GB (2x2GB) package with timings of 9-11-9 at 1.65V, but manages to hum along at an even faster 2,133MHz.
Of course, the magic comes in the cooling-pipe that runs through the top of the heatspreader. This allows the RAM to easily connect to a water-cooling system in order to keep temperatures nice and low. Kingston recommends 0.25in hoses, which should ensure that the memory can be connected to most liquid-cooling set-ups.
These RAM kits look to be nice and fast as they are, but the extra cooling should provide a little extra head-room for those looking to push their systems a bit harder. As ever, we're not sure how much benefit there is in applying fairly extreme cooling methods to the RAM, but keeping temperatures a little lower is never a bad thing when running at higher speeds.
Unfortunately, we've haven't got any indication of pricing or availability, but we're sure they'll be available for the well-heeled enthusiast before long.
