Installation and Testing

The Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4-2666 was installed with the following hardware:

Intel Core i5-6600K Skylake
Gigabyte Z170X-UD5
Swiftech H20-320 Edge
240GB Kingston HyperX 3K SSD
Sapphire R9 290X 4GB GDDR5
Swiftech Komodo R9 LE
SilverStone Strider Gold 750W
Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935
Windows 10 Pro

As expected, loading up the BIOS and selecting Profile 1 from the XMP drop-down allows the memory to run at its rated speed/timings. According to CPUZ. these are 15-17-17-35-2T using the XMP profile. Several other JEDEC timing sets exist to run using SPD. All settings are possible using the default 1.2V.

SiSoft Sandra benchmarks the Kingston Fury DDR4-2666 right where expected for this bandwidth, throughput and latency.

I also attempted some overclocking on this memory, and while it would boot at DDR4-2700, that is all I could squeeze out of it. Even when using voltage of up to 1.35V, the memory would not boot at DDR4-2800; in fact it would even fail to POST sporadically.

Let's wrap up with some final thoughts and conclusion.
