Kingston HyperX Fury White 2 x 4GB PC3 15000 Conclusion:

After giving this set of HyperX Fury modules in white a good run, I found the overclocking margin available was more than sufficient to allow these modules to play in a much deeper pool when it comes to maximum memory speeds. At 2666MHz, using timings of 12-13-13-32, these module see an overclocking boost of 800MHz. Yes, 800MHz over the rated 1866MHz! That is some pretty serious overclocking for a set of modules priced at only $79 USD. However, the required timings to do so cause performance to drop off in benchmarks at the upper range, though the reduction in performance is not really felt in day-to-day tasks. That being said, the best compromise between speed and performance came while running the HyperX Fury modules at the rated timings and boosting the applied voltage to 1.65v so that the modules could reach 2176MHz. Here we saw nice performance boosts without a whole lot of tuning needed in terms of voltage adjustments to the System Agent, ring voltage, and both the digital and analog IO voltages.

One thing I found odd was that the modules do not come with an XMP profile, but rather with a total of four JEDEC spec profiles that were far from aggressive at the rated speed bin on these modules. However, after fist booting up, the modules had set the appropriate timings for the rated speed. The cooling performance of the Fury heat shields was good in that, with a low amount of airflow running over them, the modules stayed cool even with 1.7+v running through them.

If you choose not to overclock these HyperX Fury modules from Kingston, you still cannot go wrong for $79. Matching all the system component colors has become the norm and Kingston caters to this crowd by offering the HyperX Fury modules in four popular colors: red, black, blue, and white. At this point, there is no real reason not to get a set of these modules if you are in the market for a set of low voltage, low cost, good looking modules with a lifetime warranty.

 

Pros:

  • Price
  • Performance
  • Massive overclocking
  • Multiple colors
  • Lifetime warranty
  • 1.5v

 

Cons:

  • CAS 10 at 1866MHz
