I really like the HyperX Savage DDR4 memory kit! There, I came right out with it and lay it out for the world to see. Why may you ask? Well it combines style with performance and that’s pretty much all you can do to memory, without attaching cool RGB laser beams to the heat sinks of course! I think the main thing here isn’t how it performs, but how greatly it compares with some of the top kits on the market. It does exceptionally well and keeps up with the platinum award winning memory kit in the KLEVV CRAS; HyperX ain’t no underdog and they prove it here today.
One major highlight for me was how well this kit not only overclocked on Z170, but on how much potential HyperX memory shows to the hard-core enthusiast. This kit feels so good to me that I would be tempted to put these modules on LN2 just to see how well they actually do. If the Savage heat sinks weren’t as small and beautiful, I would happily remove them from the modules and expose the IC’s, but if I were to damage them, I don’t think I could forgive myself!
The main kicker here for me is the price, with this particular kit coming in at around £105, the value for money aspect HyperX offer is unparalleled. Of course you can get cheaper kits of DDR4 memory, but how many kits feature dual sided modules these days and without disrespecting Hynix, but MFR and high end clocks aren’t the be all and end all!
With its small low profile heat sinks, the HyperX Savage 16GB dual channel 2800MHz CL14 memory kit is a super offering from the guys at Kingston and I am more than happy to award the Savage our gold award today; top stuff!!!
Huge thanks to HyperX for sending a sample in for review.
– Performs like a champion
