Speaking of Kingston I’ve got a couple sets of ram from them so look forward to those reviews coming soon. Anyway, they’ve just released an announcement about their upcoming HyperX ram that can hit 2666Mhz and supports the new Ivy Bridge CPUs. I need to get an ivy Bridge CPU, I wonder if Intel will send me one over to review? I’ve got PCIE 3 cards and they need Ivy Bridge to fully utilize them. Hmm…
