went on offer recently and was £44ish, hoping its the same again!

STARTS AT 2PM

first post, be gentle

bargain!

its 9-9-9-24 according to Q&A on the page

£48. If youre looking for RAM its amazing! But not really worth stockpiling or trying to sell on if you dont already have a use for it

thanks for the heads up OP.

The one I saw last week was a good deal for sure. Although iirc it had didn't spreaders, yellow. Not sure if the timings were any different.

Let's hope it's £44 again

Still waiting for the prices to come back down to normal. I remember thinking I had been ripped off for 8GB at £30 when I built my system a couple of years ago!
Not a bad deal though if the price is the same
#4
Don't suppose there'll be a deal on the 16GB kit? Been looking to upgrade from 8GB, without spending a fortune
#5
I paid £23.25 for this exact item 2 years ago to the day :(

at what point do we redefine normal?

dont think 79.9p counts as normal for petrol any more!

None yet but keep an eye out, just go on amazon, click "todays deals" and look at the upcoming ones. Theres a 16GB kit on pcpartpicker (cant get link atm) that I saw for £114 yesterday

Can't see that ever happening, especially now with DDR4 on the market. The DDR3 prices are just going to rise as DDR4 becomes maintream.

Petrol is a commodity which is limited and heavily taxed, it will only rise, the RAM price is on a temporary high. (Albeit a long one)

Similar to hard drive inflation a few years back, it can/will lower again, but it's been really slow coming back down.
Factory fires at core companies, flooding and placing most the worlds major suppliers in the same region never helps, neither does Apple, Samsung and the likes bulk buying a large proportion!

Have faith! One day we will get RAM nice and cheap again. I'm still angry I didn't go for 16/32 when I made my system, months before it all went belly up!

RAM is limited by the amount produced, so theres no guarantee itll come back down to where it was. Sure production may go up, but I'm pretty sure the amount of customers is flying up as well. It may never catch up again, especially considering the manufacturers don't really benefit if it does....

But sure I'll keep hoping, why not!

Ram prices shot up because alot of production factories stopped making PC ram and started focusing on manufacturing mobile phone memory etc as there wa smore demand, so the prices for RAM went up.

Anyone know if this would be suitable for the HP Microservers ?

I'm pretty sure I had to remove the heat spreaders - can't check because the microserver is in Portugal right now and I'm in Yorkshire...
