Final Thoughts and Conclusion
The Kingston HyperX Predator series has been on the market for some time now and I think that says something about how truly impressive it is. There are only a handful of DDR4 memory kits on the market that are available with these extreme memory speeds. This puts the HyperX Predator DDR4 is in a rather exclusive club. The performance at the stock speed of 3000MHz met or exceeded most of my expectations. Adding an additional voltage and tighten the timings strengthened the performance even further.
The HyperX Predator DDR4 black heatspreaders are some of the tallest I have seen. It is that height that makes them a focal point in almost any system with a side window. It is also that height that could cause clearance issues with many aftermarket CPU air coolers. If you are going to be air cooling your CPU with this memory installed, make sure that you take the Predator's 54mm tall heatspreaders into consideration. Chances are though; most individuals that will buy this kit will use a more exotic form of CPU cooling.
At the time of testing, I was able to find this kit at Amazon for $279.99. Though quite a bit of money, this is a competitive price. Like all Kingston memory, they feature a lifetime warranty.
