Kingston Fury Beast RGB DDR5-6000 ReviewSeptember 26, 2023
Those who are still on the fence to make the jump to a new platform have been held back with the fact that almost everything about it is expensive. Thankfully, they’re getting cheaper by the second, so you won’t have to worry too much if you’re planning to start out on building your new gen setup. The Kingston Fury Beast RGB DDR5-6000 is one of them, and that’s what we’re going to look at today.
So, Kingston is packaging this memory kit in plastic clamshell with a sticker wrapped around it to seal it. This isn’t the most presentable way to pack things to be honest, and we’ve seen better from Kingston such as with their higher end offerings in carton. Still, not a big deal since it’s more on the product itself over the presentation.
You can easily open it up by slicing the sticker on the side, and once you do, you’ll get access to the memory kit together with the warranty and installation manual as well as the Fury sticker.
Moving forward with the design, Kingston’s Fury heatspreader varies a bit across the board, but it’s great to note that the design theme is there. What you’ll probably notice are the RGB designs if you look closer. It’s also available in both black and white, so you have options to fit the theme of your rig whatever color it is.
The RGB lightbars are definitely glorious for stylin. There’s plenty of animations you can go through, and we’ll get to that in a bit on our software section.
You’re going to take advantage of Kingston’s FURY CTRL software to get the full experience of the Fury Beast, or any RGB product of Kingston in particular. If you fancy animations, the software has 18 total effects if you have about four DIMMs installed. You’ll get 12 if you only have two. The software also allows you to change the speed, brightness, delay time, and even the color sequence of the RGB animation here.
And of course, if you’re not for RGB, you can always turn it off. But then again, that would defeat the purpose of buying an RGB product to begin with.
For our test setup here, we’re going with the ASRock B760M PG SONIC WiFi motherboard with an Intel Core i9 12900K CPU and AMD Radeon RX 7600 graphics card here. There are two DIMMs installed, and on 6,000MT/s XMP Profile.
Kingston has always presented its products with excellent value from the performance you can get out of them. Now, that may have been different during the advent of the DDR5 standard, but we’re here now and things have been looking up for the current platform. No question here. Performance-wise, Kingston’s Fury Beast DDR5 RGB can pump out the numbers. It’s set to bring great value for your money, and with style to match.
