Today, Kingston Technology announces some new performance HyperX memory modules. While there isn’t much physically different between the original blue HyperX T1 modules, the new black spreaders sure look darn sexy. Built specifically for triple channel DDR3 boards like the up and coming GIGABYTE G1 Killer X58 Series motherboards, these modules come in 1600MHz speeds and range in size from 6GB all the way up to a whopping 24GB using 8GB modules. Pricing goes $104 US for the 6GB, $190 for the 12GB and $379US for the 24GB kit. And no, there is nothing stopping you from putting them in a dual channel board if you fancy them enough to spent the cash.

The modules should go perfectly with any black PCB board out on the market and the newly tuned XMP modules onboard should make it easy for gamers to pop them in and go right away vs. having to spend some time in the BIOS tweaking them to perfection. Full press release after the break.
