If you are in the market for buying a new RAM, you most probably know about the HyperX Fury DDR4 RAM. Kingston is one of the oldest players in making DIMMS, and I believe it is one of the best. They make high-speed durable RAM sticks; even I have been using Kingston RAMs from past four years. So today, I will be reviewing the Kingston HyperX Fury 24000MHz RAM stick.

SPECS

The HyperX Fury comes in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB kits with the speeds of 2133MHz, 2400MHz, and 2666MHz; I have the 2400MHz variant, and it is the most popular DIMM in the series. HyperX Fury can also be overclocked upwards to 3000MHz though Kingston does not recommend it. The RAM stick has a CAS latency CL14-CL15( You can know more about CAS latency here) which is the reason behind its performance.

DESIGN

Even though the RAM doesn’t have any tangy LEDs or Light stripes, It looks great from above. If you have the same DIMM on all your channels, then it will be a cherry on top. I only had one, and it still looks good. The HyperX Fury white RAM feature a smooth semi-gloss black finish, with machined accents. The entire HyperX Fury series also feature black PCB’s

Kingston attaches a label to each memory module that contains the specific information regarding that exact module, with the exception of the timing values.

Heatsink

The RAM runs on a high frequency of 2400MHZ and to keep running at the same speed; it requires a heatsink. It has a rectangular design which looks great. There have been some reports of overheating of DDR4 RAMS causing the whole system to heat; the DIMM never got above 50°C which is amazing for a RAM of this speed.

Power intake

It takes about 1.2V of power from your motherboard which is lower than the offerings from Corsair and G.Skill. The Kingston HyperX Fury comes with Lifetime warranty which is something you don’t see from brands like Corsair.

VERDICT

The HyperX Fury 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz memory kit is a fantastic offering from Kingston, though it costs Rs. 3,599 which is a little bit high than other competitors. Even though Kingston offers overclocking capabilities, better support, and better quality, I feel like it should have been 300-400 bucks cheaper.

The DDR3 versions are also available in red, blue, and white. I hope that these colors will be added to the DDR4 versions in the near future.
