We’ve seen the name Beast and Fury come up in the past when talking about RAM-kits, presented by both Kingston and HyperX (pretty much the same guys) and we were quite pleased about both kits we received. That being said, we felt it was time to present our readers with something a bit more up-to-date, as more than a year has gone by since our last review. Without further ado, we present you with one of the HyperX Savage sets (HX324C11SRK2/16), namely the 2x 8B one.



Face it, even though many gamers don’t have a desktop case with Plexiglas they do want their internal hardware to look good. HyperX’s Savage RAM line looks practically the same as the Fury series we discussed previously, but only seems to be available in red (DDR3, DDR4 comes in black). The metallic glossy red finish, with a few rugged touches makes this item truly look rather savage, especially thanks to the color tone. The somewhat crooked proportions make the device seem a bit less conventional, which again matches quite well with the name and the color.

The heat spreader itself is in an asymmetrical shape, which creates a rather fun image that suits the name of the product. It’s quite fun to step away from the symmetrical shape that used to be a thing, at least when a product tries to aim for a bold look, it should do something ‘atypical’.

For some placing new memory is both exciting as they will be able to upgrade their own rig, but also because it’s always a question if your PC will boot up after the experience,  and the Savage kits are quite fun to work with. You, carefully, place your new hardware and thanks to HyperX’s system, the kit will immediately configure itself, making sure that even the less experienced techies among us will be able to start off without hitch. Performance wise things are quite sturdy, beating a fair amount of kits on the market, but never reaching some of HyperX’s older kits (screenshots).


Even though the Savage kits might not offer the same performance as the original Beast kits Kingston provided, this one still lives up to the standard of the company with great quality and performance, while adding a lifetime warranty on top of it all. If you’re looking for a reliable kit to enhance your PC, this one might just do the trick, especially with its savage appearance.
