Kingston HyperX Fury 8GB 1866MHz Memory Kit Review
Ryan Martin+ / 3 weeks ago
Back in February we attended a Kingston press event in London where Kingston showed off their newest range of memory kits dubbed the “HyperX Fury” series. The HyperX Fury is the latest incarnation of the HyperX range and it offers new levels of style customisations for system builders, integrators and consumers. The kits are meant to be for mid-range systems with speeds ranging from 1333-1866MHz in 8GB or 16GB varieties. The main selling point is that they come with a stylish design, full black PCB and a variety of different colours. There’s also something unique about the technology behind them too, instead of using AMP or XMP they ditch both in favour of a Plug And Play (PnP) solution that uses an SPD profile to allow the motherboard to auto-detect the correct voltage, frequency and timings by default. Today we are checking out the black 8GB 1866MHz kit from the HyperX Fury series.
Packaging and Accessories
As with all Kingston memory products the packaging is a very simple plastic case secured with a sticker that has all the specifications on it.
Included with the memory is a small folded up installation guide and a HyperX sticker for your case if you wish to use it.
A Closer Look
The modules have a great look about them – a lovely matte black PCB with black heatspreaders and nice contrasting white & silver branding on the modules.
The HyperX logo has a textured finish to it which catches the light nicely.
The tops of the modules are asymmetric and have more HyperX branding on them so you can see them from looking in a side-panel window on a case.
