With the introduction of Intel’s Z170 chipset the mainstream finally gets their hands on DDR4 memory. If you remember DDR4 was first seen in the consumer market on Intel’s high-end desktop X99 platform. Those kits were all quad-channel kits, but with the Z170 chipset we have dual-channel kits. Kingston’s HyperX FURY line was introduced with DDR3 and made its way to DDR4 in quad-channel kits for X99. Now we have dual-channel kits available in 16GB and 8GB capacities. The HyperX FURY DDR4 modules have a sleek heatspreader matched with an all black PCB, which looks awesome. Today we will be taking a look at the HX426C15FBK2/16 kit, which is made up of two 8GB modules running at 2666 MHz with timings of 15-17-17 at 1.2V. Let’s take a look and see what this kit can do!
Part Number: HX426C15FBK2/16
The HyperX FURY kit comes in a simple packaging. This is the same type of packaging you should expect to see at the store or if you order the kit online. The packaging does let you know the capacity, speed, and model number.
Opening the package up inside you will find the two memory modules, warranty and installation guide, and a small HyperX sticker.
