It is not surprising that DDR4-type RAM can be used - after all, the third generation of Intel processors works with it, and AMD has completely switched to the Quartet. Only overclockers indulge in high frequencies, expensive and nimble sets are released for them. What do vendors offer the average user how to stimulate sales of components, which are the fourth year on the market? Build up the volume! Today, consider the 32GB HyperX Fury
kit, which consists of two 16GB strips.
HyperX Fury Specifications (HX421C14FWK2 / 32)
- Memory type: DDR4
- Volume: 2x 16GB kit
- Frequency: 2133 MHz
- Supply voltage: 1.2 V
- Timings: CL14-14-14-35
- XMP Profile: Yes, CL14-14-14
- Price: 23 000 rubles
Packaging - the simplest plastic blister.
Inside is a pair of slats with white radiators on microcircuits.
They look spectacular. MSI has a motherboard with a white textolite in its arsenal, and it’s the very thing to take to it.
Design featuresThe structure of the modules is standard - sixteen pieces of BGA memory chips are soldered to the textolite, eight per side.
Aluminum radiators are glued on top of the heat-conducting pad.
The height of the radiators is small, less than 34 millimeters. A good solution, there will be no obstacles when installing tower coolers.
The average width is 7.5 millimeters.
The label indicates the whale marking and a supply voltage of 1.2 volts, standard for DDR4 modules.
Four profiles are protected in SPD - three JEDEC and one XMP. The latter is no different from the three, which is strange.
Previously, the HyperX series modules were positioned as a product for enthusiasts, and a hundred or two megahertz due to the activation of XMP in the BIOS could be won.
Test resultsThe most boring section is the lack of direct comparison, you can simply write “works” and proceed to the conclusion. But it is better to try to invent the XMP profile yourself, if the manufacturer did not bother to customize it.
At a standard voltage of 1.2 volts, the slats shut up already at 2233 MHz, and at 1.26 V and slightly increased main timings, we managed to pass tests at 2533 MHz.
It was possible to get up to 2666 megahertz, the chips responded well to increasing the supply voltage, but, alas, the reaction affected the temperature - at 1.28 V, the radiators heated to 48 degrees, and the tests fell out with an error after 5-7 minutes. For once, radiators perform not only a decorative function, but also come in handy for their intended purpose.
The results of several tests will show whether two hours of dancing and resets have been in vain.
The numbers are very dependent on the type of load and application. WinRar at 400 MHz increased frequency is very happy, but Cinebench (a benchmark based on the Cinema 4D engine) did not notice any changes at all. The rest of the applications posted two to four percent plus, and that’s good. We have not tested it in games, there the differences will be comparable with the error, it has been checked repeatedly.
To summarizeHyperX Fury DDR4 (HX421C14FWK2 / 32)
- a good set of memory, perfect for working machines, where applications actively use RAM. Yes, and free overclocking at 400 MHz will give in addition to the results a few percent - a trifle, but nice. As for the price, it does not differ much from the average for twin sets with a total volume of 32 gigabytes.Pros:
