Likewise to other manufacturers, Kingston don’t mind skipping the hassle of coming up with new specifications when introducing new lineups. While this might be a sign of laziness, it is actually not a bad thing since it allows for better compatibility and comparability with older products.
At 11-13-13, the timings are quite loose by DDR3-2400 standards but, then again, it is nothing an overclock can’t fix. In fact, looking at the pool of possible IC candidates for given specs that consists mainly of Hynix and Samsung options, there is a very decent likelihood that the HyperX will be able to run 10-12-12 at rated frequency even in the worst-case scenario.
