Since purchasing my Alienware Aurora R7 GTX 1080 from Bestbuy 3 weeks ago. I have been on a mission to update my rig with my desired upgrades. First, I replaced the Intel Optane SSD & HD hybrid system which was awfully slow with a Samsung 970 Pro SSD. Results are lighting fast boots, game and application load times. I highly recommend this upgrade if you are a serious gamer.
Next, I wanted to replace my gaming rig's factory installed and cheap Kingston Value RAM memory modules. What a task to accomplished. I have done extensive online research, talked to various in-store computer "so-called" professionals, as well as calling Alienware Technical Support and to no avail, I could NOT find the "RIGHT" replacement memory for my computer. I bought and returned Corsair memory sticks (Vengenance 2.4 GHZ & 2.66 GHZ) and they all resulted in incompatibility due to the Alienware's proprietary CAS latency issues (CL 17-17-17), so I attempted the Easter egg hunt approach. I am writing this review so you do not have to experience the pain of having to attempt buying and returning numerous memory sticks.
"Bottom Line Up Front" (BLUF), if you own an Alienware Aurora and you want to upgrade your system to 2933 MHZ, stop wasting your time and buy these sticks. The memory modules are quickly recognized by the system and they run without adjusting any systems or BIOS settings. I hope this helps.
Amazon is great!!! My package arrived quickly!! Two days. I am so happy. Thank you, Amazon for great shipping and HyperX for a great product.
SHORT STORY: One of the two sticks of RAM appears to be defective. (2 x 4GB). Computer would not boot. Loads of time diagnosing. Awaiting replacements.
LONG STORY: Here's what I did and what happened.
1. ACTION: I spent a long time finding the exact part number that was compatible with my motherboard. RESULT: This was the only one I could find that was an exact match.
2. ACTION: While building the computer, I installed both sticks, one in slot A2 the other in slot B2 as called out by the MB manufacturer (Asrock X370M Pro4) for that RAM. RESULT: Computer would turn on for perhaps 15 seconds, then turn off for about 5 seconds, then repeat this cycle. Nothing showed on screen. I could not get into the BIOS or take any action.
3. ACTION: I moved both sticks, one to A1, the other to B1. RESULT: Same result.
4. ACTION: I pulled one stick of RAM out (stick 1). RESULT: Same result.
5. ACTION: I moved stick 2 from slot to slot. RESULT: Same result.
6. ACTION: I replaced stick 2 with stick on in the B1 location. RESULT: The computer booted and ran normally.
7. ACTION: I moved stick one in turn to each slot. RESULT: The computer booted and ran normally in each location.
8. ACTION: Added stick 2 back in to the system in various configurations. RESULT: The computer failed to boot no matter how stick 2 was added.
CONCLUSION: All MB slots function properly and stick 2 is bad.
I contacted Amazon and they agreed to send me the exact same product, BEFORE I return the original so that my computer will be up and running on 4GB and to send me a shipping label to return the original parts. This is a very acceptable solution for me. I will update as things progress.
NOTE: Normally, this would be a 5 star or a 1 star review. . . either the RAM works or it doesn't. In this case, I'm giving it 2 stars because. . . well, I'm not sure really. I suppose because one of them worked and if I should have a failure down the road I can reduce it to 1 star?
I hope this helps someone.
The low-profile heat spreader has the HyperX Fury name emblazoned on it, and generally speaking, the RAM looks great in slim-case builds, builds with cooler clearance concerns, builds where tall spreaders just don't work, and really any build where you don't want RAM so tall that you could sail a ship with it.
This is the second 8GB stick of HyperX Fury RAM I've purchased, as I gradually brought a tiny little slimline sleeper build up to 16GB. Both sticks have passed repeated MemTest86 runs with no errors. Again, Kingston makes quality RAM, and don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise. In operation, they're plenty snappy, even given their low clock. I haven't tried to overclock them at all because, well, my sleeper rig has an i3-6100 and a GTX 750 Ti half-width card paired with a 300W power supply, and I'd rather not set my house on fire.
The picture included is one stick of HyperX Fury inside of said sleeper build. Looks nice alongside the black/white Cryorig C7 cooler, doesn't it?
Seriously, if you want good quality DDR4 with a heat spreader, this is the way to go. It's cheap, it's beautiful, it lasts, and it will have a home in every build I do that doesn't support and/or need higher-clocked RAM.
