Our Review
This is the same Kingston Value Range memory as previously tested and the outcome is the same although this time we tested the KVR1066D3S8N7K2/4G Kit with both an AMD and Intel CPU setup on ASUS motherboards. They are a simple plug and play setup, no software installation required and both motherboards recognised the memory in full at boot up. Their performance was as expected, a big increase on the DDR2 predecessor but nothing to write home about on a DDR3 level. There are many manufacturers making memory to this spec, most with the same reliability, so it is more a choice of which name you want on your memory now as oppossed to picking a "quality" brand. These are a simple to install, well packaged and an easy to find option, the benefit of Kingston is that if you needed to upgrade in a years time it won't be too hard to find the same Memory. It should be noted that this memory is Single Rank, you should always check your motherboard manual to make sure that it accepts this type of memory, if you are not sure we would suggest the more mainstream KVR memory.
