HyperX describes its new memory as offering, strong heat dissipation, ease of use, and a stylish heat spreader design. One thing that isn’t stylish is the growing trend of RGB lighting on more and more PC components. The bad news is that this is very much a prominent factor of the FURY DDR4 RGB RAM and – frankly – we are definitely in lighting overkill territory.

If – for some reason – RGB lighting is your thing, the LED light bar has fluid RGB lighting effects and uses HyperX Infrared Sync. The memory is compatible with most lighting control software – so you can illuminate your rig like a Christmas tree.

On the bright side, HyperX is right about ease of use. The FURY DDR4 RAM has automatic Plug N Play overclocking functionality. Plug N Play enables automatic memory overclocking at DDR4 1.2V settings.

The memory also delivers impressively fast frequencies – the HyperX FURY DDR4 offers low CL15-CL19 latencies.
