The HyperX T1 kit is designed for dual-channel systems such as those based on Intel's recently released P67 chipset and AMD's 890FX.

Like other HyperX modules the two modules in this kit feature heatspreaders to help dissipate heat. They're blue in colour, as we've seen before, and give the modules a height of 61mm from top to bottom. If you already own an oversized heatsink or are planning to get one, it's worth checking to see whether or not the modules and heatsink will coexist.

We fitted the two modules to our Asus Sabertooth P67 motherboard and dialed in a memory frequency of 2,133MHz, a voltage of 1.65-volts and memory timings of 9-11-9-27. The modules ran flawlessly in our test rig at these settings but because the timings aren't as aggressive as other HyperX modules, the T1 modules didn't blow us away in terms of figures in our SiSoftware Sandra 2011's memory tests. Upping the voltage slightly to 1.70-volts however, we were able to run the modules at 2,133MHz with slightly more aggressive timings of 9-9-9-27.

Using the Sabertooth's overclocking-friendly UEFI, we were able to push the KHX2133C9AD3T1K2/4GX modules to 2,250MHz using a voltage of 1.70-volts. At this frequency and voltage however we were unable to get the modules to run 100% stable at 9-9-9-27 memory timings and increasing the supplied voltage didn't help.

Verdict: Kingston's T1 kit provides decent performance for a very reasonable price tag.
