Using geizhals as our EU price research tool, we see that offers for 8GB kits of DDR3-2133 CL11 H2O currently start at 62 Euros excluding shipping, which is 7 Euros above similar HyperX T1 and full 15 Euros more than GeIL’s 2133C11 offering. With Kingston’s water cooler being more of a showoff, we cannot recommend H2O as a rational purchase. Of course, if having memory water-cooled is a must for your next modding project, then Kingston is by far the cheapest possible choice.
Overall, the H2O have helped us build on our impression that Kingston do not give their enthusiast lineups enough attention to iron out all the problems.
Basically we like the random design but these days it's kind of weird with
Kingston. Sometimes they have modules in their portfolio that are very well
capable of running above specs and other times there are modules which don't
surpass the specs. So we would love to see specs on Kingston memory which
actually shows the performance which can really be achieved.
Kingston HyperX H2O KHX2133C11D3W1K2/8GX kit receives the good rating of
3.5 out of five stars
