Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 RGB 32GB-6000 Review – Up Close
The Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 RGB is a fairly simple memory kit when it comes to aesthetics. A single stick is composed of eight 2GB modules from SK Hynix and come with two heat spreaders on both sides with heat transfer provided by thermal pads on either side.
The memory kit has a minimalist look design-wise. The sticks are plainly painted in black with its branding clad in white or silver. There is some detailing at the sides but you won’t see this on regular use.
The main highlight of the kit, aside from its speed and pricing, is its RGB lighting. Its lighting can be customized via the Fury Ctrl software and can be synchronized with popular motherboard manufacturers for a complete themed build.
Its RGB lighting is properly diffused along the length of the stick. There are no discernable hotspots to get an even lighting experience. It is fully customizable thanks to the Kingston’s software but those who want a simpler experience can just choose from several presets like Firework, Breath, Dynamic, Static, Blink, and Color Cycle among many others.
