NZXT Gives Less Colors than Expected

Over the past week, NZXT had a teaser page up with the quote, “Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing?” While I don’t understand art nearly as well as others, the color changing graphic had me quite excited about a plethora of color options, preferably by color changing LEDs, that consumers could do with their case. Unfortunately, the color choices aren’t as elaborate as I hoped for and even the case designs are merely others that have already been released.

Now, instead of white or red/black, you can choose a blue/black, green/black or orange/black scheme.

Kingston HyperX Fury 8GB 1866MHz CL10 Memory (HX318C10FWK2/8) Review

Kingston Technologies have been in the memory business over two decades and are known for their reliable and fast memory. Today we are going to be looking at Kingston's new HyperX line called "Fury". This new Fury line from Kingston will position itself against its current mainstream HyperX Genesis and high-end HyperX Predator lines. The HyperX Fury pretty much lines up with its competitor from Corsair the Vengeance line. This will give consumers more options and widens that market share. The Fury line was not designed to be the best of the best, but is meant to meet that middle line between your beginning users and the higher-end clients. We have speeds ranging from 1333MHz to 1866Mhz which will be available in 8GB single sticks or 8GB to 16GB kits. Let's put the Kingston HyperX Furry DDR3 1866MHz kit we got for review to the test and see how well it performs.
