Kingston HyperX Genesis LoVo 16GB DDR3-1600 CL9 Memory Review

 

Conclusion

Kingston HyperX LoVo 16GB DDR3L-1600 is for sure interesting option on the memory market. It’s fast for a DDR3-1600 kit and it is also running at low voltage of 1.35V what causes lower temperature and power consumption during work. All that packed in 2x8GB modules seem perfect for daily work, like photo editing or gaming.

Average prices in couple of online stores were about $190 so it’s not really low but also not overpriced comparing to other 16GB DDR3 kits. Let’s say that price is reasonable considering it’s low voltage memory. You can also expect that 16GB LoVo series won’t be available in every online store.

The only disadvantage that I found is limited overclocking potential but that’s never guaranteed. Afterall you pay for DDR3-1600 memory which is still overclocking above DDR3-1866 mark.
