HyperX Fury

HyperX Fury 16GB

This stick of memory is good for a business motherboard. When trying to find one that is compatible with my motherboard I found that this one did the job very well. It does what I need it to do as well as having enough extra stuff that just makes it a perfect fit.

What it has is an Aluminum heat spreader so it can spread out the heat so it doesn’t heat up as fast as some other memory might. It is an Intel XMP 2.0 with automatic overclocking as well as it optimized for intel 200 series and X99. Supports AMD X370/ B350/ A320; it is 100% factory tested at speed and free technical support but has no fan included.

The specs for this memory is:

Capacity: 16GB

Type: 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM

Speed: DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300)

CAS Latency: 16

Voltage: 1.20V


Buffered/Registered: Unbuffered

With a price of $93.99, it is not a bad price for what you are getting for a business motherboard. Overall I think that this is a very good memory for what I need it to do.

Intel CPU for a Business Motherboard

Intel CPU Core i3-10300

I just got this 10th Gen Core i3 CPU to fit into my B460 Steel Legend motherboard CPU socket; with the type as an LGA 1200. I wanted a CPU that could go into my business motherboard to get my everyday work done, which I was very pleased with this pairing.

The cost of the CPU on Newegg that I got it at was $164.61 with a 3-year Warranty. It is a pretty good CPU for what I am trying to do with it. As a note for what motherboard you are trying to get the CPU has to match with the CPU socket type so Intel or AMD

The Core i3 was a very good CPU for my business motherboard. It makes my motherboard work more smoothly and everything is faster.  As an Intel CPU socket type, you will need to have an Intel CPU for that socket type you are in need of.

This CPU has a clock speed of 3.7 GHz; with cache-L3 with 8MB. The number of core processors is a Quad- Core with 8 threads.

In Passmark you can find the rating of this CPU right now as 9322 but this can change over time.
