HyperX Fury 8 GB DDR3 1866MHz Review


HyperX Fury… they’ve been around a while, some consumers may think this is a bit older and focus on DDR4, I would like to believe that DDR3 still has a large consumer area available to it. This is largely due to the price of upgrading to a full DDR4 system in the current economic climate, as the technology is relatively new this leads to higher prices. Due to HyperX Fury DDR3 RAM being  cheaper in comparison I thought I would see what the fuss was all about!

HyperX FuryI like the customisability of the product. I like how you can choose to have either red, blue white or black. I also like that kingston have put time into their business model! The reason I chose this was the pricing, at the time Amazon.co.uk listed this as £19.99 per 8GB DDR3 RAM stick. At a sale price like that, I could not ignore this opportunity. Perfect, for the many different virtual machines I run for Microsoft training. Secondly, perfect for those games that require a bit more performance.

Of course it is worth mentioning the HyperX Fury RAM works with either Intel or AMD CPU’s. The colours really are effective in dissipating heat and adding colour effect. I’ve personally found that the colour helps to improve the look, thankfully matching my MSI GPU.

HyperX Fury 8 GB DDR3 Packaging

The packaging of the HyperX Fury RAM is simplistic but professional. I have included pictures of the rear, front of the product and it’s packaging for those interested.

There are a few points I have noticed, that this is evidently quicker than the Kingston 8GB 1333MHz RAM I was previously using. In conclusion I can recommend this product to any eager system builder whenever this is on offer. At the current price point of £29.99/each is possibly a bit steep. However, I have seen it come down a few times and therefore be patient.

I’m loving the free, endless support from Kingston too. Bonus point for the dedication of the Kingston team! The only downside I can highlight about this product is probably its fluctuating value.

Feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and maybe a picture or two of your setup? I’d love to see them!

Thank you for reading.
