Lookie here, more RAM! Earlier in the week, Kingston dished out new mobile memory. Today, it's the desktop side getting some attention. The company has just released their HyperX T1 Black DDR3 triple-channel memory kits, which are designed to work flawlessly alongside the Core i7-990X chipset and X58-based motherboards. The kits are available with 3 or 6 modules, with capacities up to 24GB.

As usual, these new Black kits are totally down with overclocking, and should provide the best in performance. They'll arrive in 6GB, 12GB and 24GB kits with a 1600MHz DDR3 clock rate, and there's a video below showcasing the new stuff in a G1-Killer mobo configuration. Pricing? $104, $190 and $379 in order of mention. Big bucks means big bang, right?

I don't remember that far back but I remember paying 100 dollars a gig for ram and thinking I was getting an amazing deal! It wasn't that long ago.

Now you're just mashing it!

It's too tall to accommodate many aftermarket CPU coolers.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I just cannot believe how good RAM prices are. I remember paying $300 for 4GB of DDR2 1066 four years ago.

They should have used a black PCB but that is just being picky.

Yeaaa, its what i was wondering. I was, 'guesstimating' that it'll be too big. the heatsinks are like twice the height of the memory haha.
