I don't quite understand the "Highest Capacity" statement ST. Kingston has been making individual 8Gb sticks for a while now. Perhaps you meant "Highest Capacity memory kit" instead of "memory modules", as I don't think i've seen a 24Gb kit before.

Never said they were first. But This is the first HyperX Modules CM for retail. Not those 8GB server and Professional Kits that were Bare.

LOL what a crock of $hit. Kingston has always been late to the game when it comes to innovating anything. All that they introduce is kits with very loose timings and a very high price.

Corsair also makes overpriced kits for no reason but, they at least DO have very high end stuff if you wanted to stay within their brand.

Kingston has been around for quite sometime and have good kit if you are willing to look. And there is no need for that language.
If you can't keep it civil. DOn't make a post. Period.
