In this review, we will be taking a look at one of their speedier kits in the market – the Kingston Fury Renegade RGB DDR5-7200 32GB. Aside from having speed, they have also outfitted the memory with RGB lighting and on-board error correction.

Kingston Fury Renegade RGB DDR5-7200 32GB Review – Unboxing
Most RAM kits in the market come in a straightforward packaging and that doesn’t change with the Kingston Fury Renegade RGB. Inside the box are two 16GB U-DIMM sticks and a Kingston Fury sticker. There’s not much in the way of accessories or freebies.

Kingston Fury Renegade RGB DDR5-7200 32GB – Up Close
Unlike the Fury Beast, Kingston has decided to use a flashier design on the Fury Renegade. The brand is offering two variants for the kit: Black/Silver and White/Silver. Our review unit is the latter and it should fit any builds using a primarily white or silver color scheme.
At the top of the RAM sticks are RGB strips where the set its namesake. The strip themselves have good diffusion with colors seamlessly flowing into one another. Its lighting mode can be changed via the Fury CTRL software and can be synchronized with major motherboard partners in the market.
System and Benchmarks
The Fury Renegade supports Intel XMP 3.0 but doesn’t officially have AMD EXPO certification according to the website, though we did not encounter any problems using it on an AMD system. As its name suggests, it runs at 7200MHz with timings at CL38-44-44-105. Voltage, however, is a bit higher than lower speed kits in the market at 1.45v when set to its maximum rated speed.
We tried overclocking the Fury Renegade for both higher frequencies and tighter timings. Unfortunately, we were unable to get any results with our efforts. Anything higher than its rated speed results in system instability even with additional voltage. This may be different in other configurations so outcomes may vary from system to system.
Below are the components used in our test system:
- CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 7950X
- GPU: ASUS TUF Gaming RTX 3080 10G
- RAM: Kingston Fury Renegade RGB DDR5-7200 32GB
- Storage: Netac NV7000-t 1TB
- Motherboard: Gigabyte X670 Gaming X AX
- PSU: EVGA 650 GQ Gold 650W
- Cooler: MSI MAG CoreLiquid K360
- OS: Windows 11
- Driver Version: GeForce Game Ready Driver WHQL 537.34
For our benchmarks, we will be pitting the Fury Renegade with the Fury Beast that we took a look at in a previous review to see if there’s a significant bump in performance with additional RAM speed. We will be testing them with various workloads including compression and decompression tasks, and gaming.
Kingston Fury Renegade RGB DDR5-7200 32GB Review – Conclusion
The Kingston Fury Renegade RGB DDR5-7200 proposes increased performance over your “affordable” DDR5 kit. The faster transfer rates of the memory kit allow for better performance across the board especially for memory intensive tasks like compression and decompression.
It does come with a cost, however, as the set is priced at USD 230 internationally or PhP 15,800 in the Philippines. Some might also dislike the color scheme of the Black/Silver variant as the silver highlights might clash on darker-themed systems. Fortunately, its RGB lighting should be more than enough to attract some builders.
Those who are looking for a significantly faster DDR5 kit for their system should definitely keep the Kingston Fury Renegade RGB DDR5-7200 on their shortlist so long as their willing to shell out a bit of a premium for the kit. Hopefully, some of the more budget-oriented enthusiasts can get it at a sale for even more bang-for-the-buck.
