The HyperX Fury memory was designed to fit the budget minded consumer, but when it comes to shopping for DDR4 memory and running the X99 chipset system… budget really goes out the window. However, finding the right set of memory that does great in the performance to dollar sector is the key, and the HyperX Fury memory really hits the mark. Priced at $349.99 (at the time of this review) on newegg.com for a 32GB quad channel set of memory running at 2666MHz, is really competitive in today’s memory market. So let’s recap on what you get for this performance packed memory bundle.
The HyperX Fury DDR4 Memory kit isn’t offered other color options at this time. Black is still a popular choice among enthusiasts, and can go with any color scheme. The smaller heat spreaders do add some appeal and allow users to have better cooling options since the memory modules won’t get in the way of a larger CPU cooler. This is a great alternative for those looking for high performance memory without the nuisance of the memory heat spreaders getting in the way. In the aesthetics arena, we give the HyperX an A+.
In terms of performance, let’s first touch on the overclocking a bit. Memory overclocking can really be a hit or a miss. Depending on how binned the memory chips you get are, the results can vary. But with today’s newer chipsets and CPU processing, we are seeing memory overclocking becoming much easier. In our case, finding the right timings helped bring a little extra horse power out of some already powerful memory. We achieved an OC of 3096.4MHz with voltages at 1.35volts. This is pretty outstanding performance with some very minor tweaking.
So to wrap this up, we have to say that HyperX did a great job. The pricing of this kit is very competitive. Furthermore, the kit we received performed better than we expected. It even beat out its own flagship model the HyperX Predator. It’s easy to see why we’d like to honor the HyperX 32GB DDR4 Fury Memory the PureOverclock Editors Choice Award.
