Inside the box

Inside the two memory modules are packaged in a clear plastic tray with a lid.

Looks

The unique design of the HyperX FURY heat spreader optimally pulls heat away from the memory chips, into your system giving more headroom for overclocking. With black heat spreaders and a black PCB, the HyperX FURY kits goes very well with any color theme build.

Inside

First looking at the RAM modules, found a curve or difference in the height (approx 1mm) of the connection pads and PCB. Module is having extra height in the middle when compared with the both ends. This curve results in lowering the pressure on the modules while inserting them into the DIMM slots giving a smooth and easy RAM installation.

Now zooming under the heat spreader and we found that the kit is made of double sided DIMMs( that is the memory chips are placed on both sides of PCB) having 8 x SKhynix Chips (a 512M x 8 configuration 4Gb DDR4 Memory chip) on each side. Image source : HWDb
