Kingston FURY Renegade RGB Memory Kit Review

Kingston’s FURY lineup is new but these are classic design with a proven track record. My original Predator DDR4 RGBs were from 2018 and I had to take them of my 6950X system to show them off for this review. Kingston has come a long way from then with higher speeds and tighter timings but one thing’s for sure, the now Kingston FURY Renegade RGB continues a legacy that just like Kingston’s decades long stay in the industry, is something that’s worth putting your trust in.

You’ll probably see a bunch of reviews specifically with this kit from many other sites and that’s because Kingston is drumming up the PR machine for their new FURY brand and what’s the best way to showcase your flagship memory product than the fastest RGB stick you have. The Kingston FURY Renegade RGB line does top-out at pairs of 8GB DDR4-4600 sticks but the faster DDR4-5000 kits can be found on the non-RGB FURY Renegades. If you’re after absolute peak, then the FURY Renegade basic are your go-to option with speeds up to DDR4-5333 on stock. If you want a good mix of RGB, performance and max compatibility, the FURY Renegade RGB sticks are limited to to pairs but if you’re just building for a gaming PC, the 16GB are just enough especially for games that respond well to faster memory.

I praise Kingston for keeping the FURY Renegade RGB heatsink tooling and not ditching it for the sake of branding. Its one of the shortest RGB DIMM modules out there and if that’s some thing you consider, that’s already a plus for these kits whatever your reason is for wanting them.

In terms for performance, I do feel Kingston could’ve went a bit tighter on the timings on this one as I was able to drop them on stock XMPs but my biggest reservation is that at this range, many folks would might want to opt for a larger kit and that’s probably something Kingston is working on, but again its a nitpick as you can scoop up two pairs of FURY Renegades.

The Kingston FURY Renegade RGB memory are classic Kingston quality and for those that are checking these memory out coming from their previous branding, you’re still getting some of the best build quality out in the market right now.

Kingston backs the FURY Renegade RGB memory with a limited-lifetime warranty. I give it my B2G Recommended Seal!
