It’s been a while but thanks to HyperX, we’re able to bring you another DDR3 RAM (random access memory) review! In the past, we’ve already reviewed Kingston’s Beast RAM (which is now part of HyperX’ line-up) but now we’ve got a Fury RAM-kit to talk about. Let’s see if this kit hits the right notes and how it compares to the Beast.



The Fury RAM-kits are available in a couple of different colour options: blue, white, red and black. For some that may seem trivial but for most gamers, making a choice concerning RAM is often dependant on what suits the builds colour scheme. It’s of course the heat spreader that’s coloured, the memory’s PCB is stylishly black. Special about that heat spreader is its asymmetrical design, giving it some extra flair and the fact that it has a low profile, allowing for maximum CPU-cooler clearance.


  • Part number: HX318C10FK2/8
  • 2 x 4GB modules
  • JEDEC: DDR3-1866 CL10-11-10 @1.5V (highest)
  • Internal (self-)calibration: Internal self-calibration through ZQ pin (RZQ : 240 ohm ± 1%)

Mostly, performance-oriented RAM-kits are reliant on XMP-profiles to be able to run at their advertised speeds. This requires a motherboard that supports that feature. What HyperX has done with their Fury memory is pretty neat. It has a self-calibration feature which basically comes down to the fact that the memory is going to decide for itself what the best and highest speed will be where it’ll be able to run comfortably. The highest speed it will be able to calibrate itself to is 1866MHz with lower speeds being 1600 and 1333. The benchmarks we performed were all at the highest speed. Comparing it to HyperX’ Beast memory, the Fury doesn’t quite keep up. Which is normal as the Beast is aimed at high-end computers. Pitching it against Corsair’s Vengeance memory however, it managed to keep up quite well.


It’s hard to say anything negative about a product that just works and does it well. HyperX’ Fury RAM-kits are a great choice for entry to mid-level computer builds. They perform like a champ and don’t require XMP-supporting motherboards. Their slick design makes them look cool and stand out (with a variety of colours to match your build) while maintaining a low profile thus allowing for large CPU-coolers. It doesn’t hurt that they’re quite affordable either.

HyperX Fury RAM - Hardware Review, 7.5 out of 10 based on 8 ratings

I'm currently studying software-development. My main hobbies are gaming (software/hardware) and music (jazz saxophone player). I game primarily on PC (and also love building them) but also play on PS3, iOS and Android.
