G.SKILL is one of the move respected names in the computer industry. Established in 1989 by enthusiasts, they have become one the leading memory module manufacturers. They also have one the most extensive range of computer memory products available. They have 12 different series  of desktop memory alone. The Ripjaws X series offers speeds from 1333MHz all the way up to an impressive 2400Mhz.

Kingston Technology launched the HyperX T1 memory series back in 2008. Soon afterwards, the HyperX T1 became legendary among the enthusiast community and for good reason. HyperX T1 modules featured massive blue heat spreaders that dissipated heat away from the memory chips, a necessity for overclocking. After a four year production run, Kingston to go back to the drawing board and design a new heat spreader with better thermal characteristics. So in 2012, the HyperX Predator was born.

HyperX Fury

Kingston Technology has been around since 1998 and impressing enthusiasts and system builders the whole time. Kingston produce desktop and laptop memories, SSDs, flash drives and more. On our focus today is one of their latest desktop memory additions. Kingston's HyperX memory line includes the Genesis, PnP (plug and Play), LoVo (Low-Voltage), Predator, Beast, and H20 series. They have recently released a new series and we will be looking at it today, the HyperX Fury.

Choosing desktop memory may be one of the best parts of the computer building process. No other computer component has the sheer number of options as RAM. Every speed, latency, heat spreader color, and style are out waiting to be explored. Dancing light, fans, and digital displays just add more awe to world that is RAM. All these choices are absolutely fantastic, but can also be daunting to even the most seasoned system builder. Even if you have narrowed it down to a specific specification, the number of kits out there might still be staggering. Sure, you could go with whatever kit everyone else is using. Perhaps you are a bit rebellious. You so not want what everyone else has. You want something different and that led you here. Today we will be taking a look at the ADATA XPG V1.0 series 8GB (2x 4GB) Black 1600 MHz CL9 desktop memory kit.

Corsair has just released their newest ram kits called the Vengeance Pro. The new series is designed for the third and fourth generation Intel users that want the most when it comes to overclocking would certainly love the Corsair Vengeance Pro. This isn't Corsair's first memory series to have the name 'Vengeance' in them.Some time ago, they launched the standard Vengeance series and with that there are some variations within the series like the Extreme (3000MHz) and the Low Profile modules.

The first model would be the new HyperX Beast, which we will be checking out today, and other is the HyperX 10TH anniversary edition. The HyperX Beast seems to be the new top dog from Kingston as it is sporting a new heat sink design. The Beast stays even cooler with it stepping up the ante with a super high frequency of 2400MHZ.

Crucial's newest has the same low stance, better timings and operates at the same voltage. I guess you can say the Tactical line is one step higher to the Sport as it boasts 8-8-8-24 instead of 9-9-9-24. Many individuals would not mind owning either but we are digging the lower timings and the quicker refresh.
