In previous packages that Kingston has sent us, we usually only get the memory in a plastic protective packaging; this is now going to change with Kingston's new packaging and marketing strategy. The modules are firstly placed in a small cardboard carton that surrounds the memory.
On the back of the package there is some marketing info on the modules, but no relevant data on its speed ratings. On the front through a see-through hole, you can see part of the sticker on the actual packaging
After we remove the cardboard, we are greeted with the familiar package material that Kingston uses. This has the protective sticker that is designed to tell customers if it's been opened before; or if you try to take the memory back saying that you changed your mind and didn't open it, you're busted here (been guilty of that before).
Removing the modules from the plastic protection is easy; no tools needed here. It's a simple case of break the paper sticker and then split the case open.
The kit supplied is a 2GB Dual Channel Kit (2x1GB modules) rated for PC3-14400 or 1800MHz DDR3. The modules have a new blue HyperX heatspreader with the company logo and the HyperX logo on them.
On one side of each module, Kingston has its traditional sticker with a lot of numbers on it to give you some info on the memories specs. However, to read it you need to understand what their code means. Google is your friend here.
