Packing Box

Let’s first go through the complete unboxing experience.

Design

During testing, we were unaware of GIGABYTE’s BIOS update supporting speeds up to 7400MT/s for FURY RENEGADE RGB kits. Without this update, the DDR5 kit’s maximum supported speed is 7200MT/s. Consequently, this content lacks an overclocking section. We’ll await GIGABYTE’s BIOS update for a broader speed range before attempting overclocking. With that out of the way, Let’s take a closer look at the kit, followed by the test results. 

Kingston’s FURY RENEGADE RGB stands as a premium, high-performance memory series. It’s available in both RGB and non-RGB editions, with RGB versions coming in black & silver and white & silver color combinations. We are testing a black & silver color kit, RGB kit. This series is available in the following capacities, transfer speeds, and latencies:

Transfer SpeedsCapacity LatencyVoltage Range
DDR5-600016GBCAS321.35V
DDR5-640032GBCAS361.40V
DDR5-680048GBCAS381.45V
DDR5-720064GB
DDR5-760096GB
DDR5-8000

The Kingston FURY Renegade DDR5 RGB boasts a stylish design with black & silver or white & silver heat spreaders. Its dynamic LED light bars, using Kingston’s Infrared Sync Technology, deliver synchronized RGB lighting for a sleek look in modern PC builds. Measuring 133.35x44x7.66mm (LxHxW), this High-Profile design stands out. The RGB variant differs in height at 44mm, while the non-RGB is 39.2mm.

PRO TIP: Always verify RAM height clearance to prevent compatibility issues with motherboard, CPU cooler, graphics card, and case constraints.

Width varies minutely, with the RGB being 7.66mm and the non-RGB at 7.65mm. Consider the height for air-cooling solutions. It’s a non-ECC, Unbuffered DIMM with a 288-pin layout (DDR5). Check compatibility with various motherboards here. The kit features an elegant black and silver color scheme, with a removable aluminum cover revealing KINGSTON FURY in white and RENEGADE in black over silver plating. The DDR5 label is on the right side of the black body.

The silver plating, showcased from a different angle, sits atop the black main body, adding a distinctive touch to the overall design. The main heatsink and PCB maintain a sleek black color, with notches on both sides indicating the PCB border. Kingston emphasizes tolerances of ±0.12 on all dimensions unless specified otherwise.

The top of the sticks holds the enchantment, featuring a frosted diffuser. Contrary to expectations, the diffuser doesn’t run straight along the length but has sloped sides, with a mid-section adopting a straight design. This unique arrangement complements the overall aesthetic of the kit.

WARNING: Make sure your motherboard is compatible with DDR5 memory before purchasing a module such has this one.

I also observed that lockers on the edges conceal a certain portion of this diffuser. CORSAIR has wisely addressed this issue and provides a full-length un-concealed diffuser on the top of their sticks. I hope Kingston will also address this. However, this is not glaring or has anything to do with the performance.

This is a single-rank design PCB with a black foam pad on one side. It features 8 memory chips (2GB each) arranged 4×2 on both sides, totaling 32GB in 1Rx8 configuration using a 2G x 64-bit design. The memory kit, Hynix A-Die (H5CG48AEBDX018), employs the Anpec Electronics APW8502C PMIC controller.

It lacks RGB but supports Intel XMP 3.0. Manufactured in February 2023, it doesn’t have a programmed EXPO but includes a temperature sensor on each stick (±0.50°C accuracy) via SPD5118 from Montage Technology.

The PCB is protruding from the sides of the heat spreader. This is to make room so that latching can be done when installing the modules in the socket. One can take a glimpse at memory chips.

BIOS

Let’s go through the BIOS.

This kit packs three XMP profiles listed as XMP1, XMP2, and XMP3 in BIOS. The data for each is as under:

Profile Frequency Timings Voltage
JEDEC Default DDR5-4800 CL40-39-39 1.1V
XMP1 DDR5-7200 CL38-44-44 1.45V
XMP2 DDR5-6800 CL36-42-42 1.40V
XMP3 DDR5-6400 CL32-39-39 1.40V

Please make a note that running a memory kit above JEDEC Default is considered overclocking, and despite XMP coming from Intel, Intel will not honor the warranty if the CPU gets damaged with the XMP profile loaded. As strange as it sounds, it is what it is!

PRO TIP: Before attempting to configure XMP profiles, ensure that your motherboard’s BIOS firmware is up to date. Manufacturers often release updates that can improve stability and compatibility with XMP settings.

Below is the SPD readout as taken from the AIDA64 Engineer edition.

We are thankful to our sponsors for this test bench. The following software have been used for the testing:

  • AIDA64 Engineer
  • SiSoftware Sandra Suite
  • Performance Test
  • 3DMark Time Spy
  • Super Pi

Before testing, we loaded XMP 3.0 (XMP1) in UEFI BIOS. The timings and DRAM frequency were manually loaded just in case to ensure the proper working of the kit.

RGB Lighting

Before we jump to a conclusion, let us show some pictures of vivid RGB lighting from this kit. This kit is compatible with:

Kingston has also provided software named FURY CTRL. It can be downloaded from their website. There are 18 pre-defined modes in that software. The RGB kits use Infrared RGB Sync for even light diffusion across the board. We did not use FURY CTRL software as GIGABYTE RGB FUSION 2.0 provided good support for light control on this kit. Here are a few pictures:

Should You Buy It?

After testing, I’ve listed a few points that might help you with your buying decision. 

Buy It If:

✅You want a high-speed DDR5 kit: With speeds up to 7400 MHz, the Kingston Fury Renegade is undeniably one of the fastest DDR5 kits you can get your hands on as of right now.

✅You want a compatible high-profile kit: Despite the addition of an RGB bar on the top, the Kingston Fury Renegade 7200 MT/s 32GB provided reasonable clearance thanks to its height of 44mm.

Don’t Buy It If:

❌You are on a budget: Of course, the higher speeds combined will come at a premium, making it out of the question for anyone working with a tight budget.

Conclusion

Kingston’s FURY RENEGADE and FURY RENEGADE RGB are high-performance DDR5 memory solutions, hand-picked and rigorously tested for optimal performance. The design features an aluminum heat spreader in black, enhanced by silver plating for an appealing and aggressive look. This time we have taken a spin on Kingston Fury Renegade RGB 32GB 7200MT/s CAS 38 so you can easily guess the top slot on our graphs has changed.

We have tested Kingston FURY RENEGADE RGB DDR5 2x16GB 7200MT/s CAS38 kit on GIGABYTE Z790 AORUS ELITE AX using Intel i7 13700k. This motherboard can support RAM of up to 7200MHz speed at the time of testing. However, there is a BIOS update providing support up to 7400MHz. This kit has a smashing performance across the board compared to other kits in our graphs, thanks to its massive faster transfer rate.

As far as performance is concerned, Kingston managed to secure the top two slots in our graphs, which is primarily due to their transfer rates, as we have yet to test high-speed kits from other manufacturers. One side note is that we had to set the system agent voltage and memory voltage manually to make this kit fully stable with the XMP1 profile. Once set, the system was working fine.

Kingston Fury Renegade RGB DDR5 7200MT/s CAS38 non-RGB is listed on AMAZON at USD 365 at the time of this writing. This is a steep price compared to the competition, and Kingston may need to address the pricing accordingly. Kingston is providing a limited lifetime warranty on this kit.

Thanks to Kingston for the provision of a test unit.
