Kingston’s FURY RAM brings auto overclocking to gamers
Take a look at Kingston DDR3 – (left) 2x8GB HyperX “Beast” at 2133MHz and (right) HyperX “Predator” at 2800MHz, compared with FURY 1866MHz (far right) and 1800MHz 2GB HyperX Blu. The Predator RAM is much heavier and has a much higher profile.
In fact, we had to exchange our Noctua NH-DH14 for a Thermaltake Water2.0 CPU watercooler to accommodate the extremely high profile of Predator RAM.
Kingston offers a choice of four colors for their HyperX FURY RAM which allows the enthusiast to color-coordinate their equipment. We picked White.
Even though our PC’s interior is mostly black, silver and gold, the white FURY RAM fits right in.
It’s easy to open the package and we get a look at the Kingston insert which contains warranty information as well as the installation guide. A “Powered by Kingston HyperX’ sticker is included for your case.
FURY shows up properly configured in the ECS Golden Z87 MB BIOS although there is certainly room for performance tweaking. Here is a screen shot of the ECS BIOS with the stock “automatic” overclocked 1866MHz settings. There were no other profiles available to us.
