The Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 32GB 2400MHz kit performed well, the XMP install clocked it right up to 2400MHz without having to lift a finger other than to snap the memory in. The sleek black heatsinks look great in the test rig, the low profile fits under most air coolers and there’s a wheel barrel full of memory there. The charts bear out that as far as performance goes there is a little advantage to the uber high speed ram but uber high speed ram comes with an uber high price tag. As far as the human eye is concerned there was never any noticeable difference between the Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 32GB 2400MHz kit and the 3000Mhz kit other than the benchmark scores. Day to day use the machine seems just as fast and responds just as quickly.
There’s no downside to having 32GB of system memory, the 2011v3 platform is relatively new and longevity should warrant a high density kit. We are hearing rumors of a Socket 1150 CPU refresh (Again) so we expect the longevity of the enthusiast 2011v3 platform to be good.
Kingston’s HyperX Fury DDR4 32GB 2400MHz kit kept pace with the 3000MHz kit and provides enough RAM for the foreseeable future, The low latency kit in fact surprised us with its speed and snappy response time. Low latency tight timing in the CL 15 – 16 range is the way to go with DDR4 and the higher the density the kit the better. Look back at the mythical quote from Bill Gates “I don’t see anyone needing more than 640k memory” and look at all the memory evolution’s. Dos wanted 640k with many of us expanding memory to 1MB, Windows 95 1MB was a squeak and 4 Ran it good, fast forward to Windows XP and 128MB ran but 512MB was recommended. jump to Vista and 4GB was it’s calling card. Now we are seeing 16GB as the entry level on DDR4 and 32GB as future proofing. In a year or so while DDR4 is still running strong how much will we need?
The Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 32GB 2400MHz kit runs great the latency is low the CL 15 timings are tight but before I blew the 3rd Core on the 5830k Intel CPU was overclocking well. Stay tuned and as soon as the Egg gets the new CPU cross shipped I’ll add some overclocking. Before the CPU popped I hit 2600 MHz without a voltage increase so if that’s any indication the kit will overclock well. Rest easy knowing Kingston’s Lifetime warranty will cover your memory as well as NewEggs return policy covered my CPU. In all honesty I’ve reviewed for a lot of years and never had a kit of Kingston memory die on me overclocked or otherwise. Dependability and longevity go a long long way with me, when you have kits that have been running trouble free for 7 years you get a lot of faith in a brand. The kind of faith I have in Kingston’s Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 32GB 2400MHz kit.
