9

You’ve probably heard about HyperX a couple of times, but the company’s been around for 17 years now. Considered as Kingston Technology’s enthusiast arm, HyperX was able to establish an array of products ranging from mice, storage, headsets, keyboards, audio, as well as memory.

The company extends to enthusiast memory, with the sub-brands Fury and Predator for their desktop DDR4s. What’s great about these is that the ranges are both available with & without RGB lights.

The HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200 aims for a more value-driven approach by utilizing regular profile modules. Also, it is a 32GB [2 x 16GB packs] pack of DDR4, which makes it better.

Today, we’re going to focus on the HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200 to see how good it is, what it’s all about, and what features it has in store for us. But before anything else, let’s take a look at what’s inside the box.

HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200 Review – What’s in the Box?

The HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200 that we received came in a subtle-looking container which is the standard retail packaging of the company. It is generally a little clamshell container that holds the HyperX Fury RGB memory inside. When you take a look at the box’s exterior, you will find all the necessary information about the HyperX Fury RGB kit.

Removing the product from the box will give you a total of four memory modules. Other than the HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200, you will receive a warranty guide, one small HyperX sticker, plus the installation guide.

HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200 Review

Like every other DDR4 kit around, the HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200 comes with two different kinds of memory modules. This kit that we have is the 2x 16GB versions, so the modules are 8GB each.

The kit also comes with attractive and sleek black heat spreaders that feature the quality of Kingston that we expect.

The Heat Spreaders

The heat spreaders alone have a rugged yet appealing look to them. On one side, you will find the Fury logo, while the other portion features the HyperX logo and a smaller DDR4 logo. The heat spreader’s opposite side has a minimalistic look. However, it features a sticker to let you know all the details you need about the HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200.

Looking at the top part of the heat spreader, you will notice the HyperX logo on them. So, if you happen to have a case window, you’ll get to see them immediately. The aluminum heat spreaders still sport the distinct flares and cutouts that are generally more for aesthetics than for actual cooling uses. However, the twin modules hardly become warm even after prolonged use.

When it comes to the height of the heat spreaders, these are highly receptive to more significant air cooling solutions that can possibly overhang the DIMM slot areas.

We liked that the company made use of a black PCB since it goes perfectly with the heat spreaders. Its asymmetrical heat spreaders appear well-constructed and have an adequate ventilation area on top to allow the proper escape of heat. Overall, it is well-designed, has a good build, and it looks great too.

The HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200 is XMP ready, and this specific version has a CAS latency of 17 cycles, 1.2 Volts. It is a single DDR4 memory that comes with dual & quad-channel kits, as well as black PCB and heat spreaders. The HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200 is a fairly-sized DDR4 memory and measures 41.24 millimeters.

The HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200 is compatible with the ASUS Aura, ASRock, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, as well as the MSI Mystic Light Sync. Plus, the DDR4 memory is HyperX Infrared Sync Technology-enabled. The HyperX Fury RGB, just as its name states, has an RGB illumination with motherboard / HyperX Ngenuity software controls.

It’s also great that the company included a lifetime warranty for their HyperX Fury RGB 32GB DDR4-3200.
