The PredatorX kit memory sticks we received were packed per pair in two separate blister packages. No fancy packaging here at all. Does this imply the kits reviewers receive are different or even factory binned? Your guess is as good as mine; maybe they just want to save on the packaging. People like me are not that careful with it anyway and just tear it open as quickly as possible to get straight to the inside candy. Maybe the previous reviewer was a bit too rough with the packaging too :P.
EDIT: we received a heads up that this is the retail packaging, no fancy box. It matters what is packed inside :)
The HyperX Predator DDR4 heats spreader design hardly differs from the one DDR3 modules. Biggest novelty is the professional looking black coating instead of the casual Kingston Blue that we all got so accustomed too over the years. It has to be mentioned that these are really some beefy heat spreaders. Ready to tackle high voltages and to keep the ICs at low operating temperatures under all circumstances; a single module weighs in at 105 grams. This in comparison with the mere 39 grams of a Corsair Vengeance LPX memory stick. Our Quad Channel kit on review today is the Hynix MFR equipped 3000C15-16-16-38 2T command rate set, fully compatible with Intel's 5000 series processors and the X99 chipset.
The HyperX Predator DDR4 lineup is described in the below chart. Ranging from entry level speeds of 2133MHz to a whopping 3000MHz in either 16GB (4 x 4Gb), 32GB (4 x 8GB) and even one 64GB variant:
HyperX had got you completely covered, though if the need for speed isn't a requirement they also offer the more affordable Fury DDR4 series.
