Kingston Fury BEAST DDR5 5200MHz 32GB (16GBx2) Review

A Closer Look
It’s fair to say that the model I have in for today is a more affordable model, so I’m not expecting blistering performance from it, as it’s one of the least fast kits we have. I was going to say slower, but this is still a high-end DDR5 memory kit, it’s just the others we’ve tested are faster still. However, the cool thing is that it looks just as great as the more expensive and faster models, with that two-piece black aluminium heat spreader design.
There’s a good amount of surface area for cooling, they’re not true low-profile modules, but they are still very low overall. There are some cut-outs in the spine too, which all for a bit of airflow throughout the DIMMs, but also it just looks good, which I think is the primary intention.
There are some details stamped into the aluminium to make them look more futuristic and industrial, or at the very least, less boring. It works well enough though, with zero RGB and a matte black paint job, it’s pretty understated by overall good-looking memory.
The words Kingston, Beast, and DDR5 are printed on in white. However, the word Fury is raised and machine cut into the aluminium then left unpainted, which looks great!
The memory is branded with a sticker on the back, nothing we haven’t seen before really. Beyond that though, you’ll find the memory comes with a black PCB, sporting Micron memory and ANPEC’s power management IC, which are good components but do lean to the more affordable range of the spectrum, which is fine, as that’s reflected in the retail price of these modules too; not everyone needs flagship hardware all the time!
