HyperX has another solid memory kit on their hands with the Fury RGB DDR4. The memory has a very sleek design (although not the best we’ve seen) with a matching heatspreader and PCB along with some nice RGB lighting. The diffuser at the top of the module does a great job providing even light and since these modules are only 41.24 mm tall you don’t need to worry about clearance issues. This means these modules should fit in pretty much any system.
Talking about the RGB lighting HyperX’s NGenuity software worked great and allowed us to easy control and and set different effects for the RGB lighting. Some might not like that it is a Windows Store app though. If you don’t want to use the NGenuity app you can just use your motherboard’s RGB software. We had no problem using ASRock’s Polychrome Sync software to control the RGB lighting on the modules. One of the best features about the RGB lighting is that it will not go out of sync. Typically we see effects go out of sync in a matter of minutes on other modules.
When it comes to performance these modules perform to what you would expect from 3200 MHz memory with 16-18-18 timings. So good overall performance, but nothing to write home about. We were able to get an extra 300 MHz out of this kit with the exact same timings as the XMP profile, the only thing we had to adjust was the voltage from 1.35V to 1.45V.
Right now the HX432C16FB3AK2/16 kit that we reviewed today is selling at our favorite online retailer for $98.99 at our favorite online retailer, which we think is a fair price. Overall ThinkComputers gives the HyperX Fury RGB DDR4-3200 16GB Memory Kit a 9 out of 10 score.
– Sleek design
– Great RGB lighting that does not go out of sync
– HyperX offers their own RGB software
