    Always been quite happy with Kingston memory, even their value ranges.

    Never tried any of their peripherals though but not sure why HP bought the peripheral line, was it for the hardware or for the brand?

    Re: Kingston Fury is Kingston's new enthusiast and gaming brand

    Hasn't the Fury stuff always been one of their brands?

    TBH, with names like Renegade, Beast, Impact, Storm, Inferno, Destructor, Obliterator, Decimator and all the other fluff that usually follows "Gaming" branding, I wonder if they'll ever run out of cool names by which to misdescribe their stuff...

    Yep - albeit RAM-only IIRC. It just used to start with HyperX instead of Kingston. There was another one that was the tier above Fury too, but I forget what that name was at this particular moment.
