Packaging and HyperX FURY
Packaging for the HyperX FURY is what we expect from them, as all of our past FURY kits also came in similar clamshell clear plastic like these did. Around the packaging is the anti-tamper sticker used for branding and information about the kit inside. The part number is on the left side, but across the central portion, we see that this is a 32GB kit of 3733 CL19 memory. We can also see the warranty and installation guide that comes along with them, should you have any questions about either of them.
Our first look at the sticks is of the sides of the heat spreaders, and this is where most of the effort went. With the new shape and styling, they show their heritage while delivering a much needed updated appeal. As we mentioned, the naming is the same, but locations of them have been swapped, but we still get black PCBs and everything else we are used to seeing in our FURY samples.
While your retail purchases obviously will not have the evaluation stickers present, the label at the left does present you with a few useful bits of information. Beyond the bit about HyperX being part of Kingston, we do see the part number, and we also see its operating voltage just below it. Following 1947 is the serial number, and we also see they are marked as a kit of two.
Along the top edge, we can see where the two halves of the heat spreader come together, as they jog around the HYPERX that has been painted onto them. Looking through the small gaps in the top edge, we see how close HyperX kept to the height of the PCB, which is why these are billed as a low-profile solution, and an excellent option for those with little room to populate slots.
Once in the systems, we opened up Thaiphoon Burner and had a look. In it, we see that each stick is marked different than the kit for this 2400MHz downbin set, made late last year. The ICs on the PCB are made by Hynix and are H5AN8G8NDJR-TFC, 17nm chips. What may interest more users is the dual XMP profiles offered, one with 3733MHz 19-23-23 timings, and the other at 3600MHz 17-21-21!
The FURY is a terrific addition to our AMD system, as they blend right into the Crosshair Hero motherboard and all of the other gear strapped to it. While we are using an AIO to cool our CPU, with the FURY only a few millimeters taller than the PCB, air CPU coolers with tight RAM compatibility should be of little concern here.
As a lot of RAM tends to do, the FURY does look much better the closer they are together! But, even on the gray motherboard with white accents and exposed metal everywhere, the FURY once again blends right in, Again, for those who prefer stealthy looking builds or those who dislike RGB, these fill the void for many!
