It doesn't matter that they were Kingston. They were Elpida Hyper ICs
that were to blame, and they got recalled because so many of them died like that. What do you expect for reviews on a recalled product? Just check the Elpida Hyper Graveyard
and you will see Corsair, Mushkin, OCZ, and others all used Elpida Hyper ICs and they stopped selling them.
IIRC some of the newer Hypers didn't have the problem anymore, but regardless I don't think they're in circulation unless you buy used. I also highly doubt they were 2x the price of Dominators lol but regardless all manufacturers were plagued by problems with Hypers at first.Edited by Dopamin3 - 2/1/12 at 10:20pm
