Wow, Kikatek actually have a good deal that's in stock, makes a change.
Nice find.
#2
Ordered one for myself.
#3
Great find.
#4
That is alot of memory for the money, i'd get in quick tho bet they go OOS fast and over £50 cheaper than Scan :o
#5
To the best of your knowledge, apart from the fact a stick of 4gb can be usefull if one day I will need a lot of memory, has it got any drawbacks proportionate to the usual 2gb stick??Or it is actually even better than a 2gb?
thank You

I did a bit of googling and the answer is: It depends
They say it does help a lot in heavy applications such as Photoshop......
But pricewise it is worth. Think how much you would pay for same spec 2x2 sticks.

Ordered one... slightly concerned that they're a LOT cheaper than Scan, but at this price it's worth a try.

good price but not the fastest , latency is 9-9-9-27
#9
Yes, but it must be related to the amount of memory we got, I think or despite that would you say that 4gb v 2gb stick and obviously same amount of memory, let say 8gb in total, should then be the same??

Do not want to confuse you with wrong answer.
Read all this thread: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/memory/2008/07/08/is-more-memory-better/4

Or go to WW.BIT-TECH.NET then click HARDWARE and then MEMORY and decide yourself

doubt you will noticed the difference tbh

They are testing 2gb sticks. I do not really need them now. I got 2gbx4 and I must admit that game like crysis run smoother than 2x2gb. Very soon ddr4 should be out anyway and then should be worth in my situation. Thank you anyway

Many professionals, i.e it freaks told me the excessive amount of ram is useless and isnt utilised fully unless you over-clock, which i found to be true on performance tests articles on the net

CPU clock speed has nothing to do with how much RAM is utilised. This may be true for RAM timings (ie. this 1600MHz RAM here might run at 1333MHz depending on the CPU frequency -- it will on a stock Core i5 750, for example) but how much of the RAM capacity is utilised is not affected in the least by CPU clock speed.

This is a very good deal, I paid about the same for 4GB of comparable memory modules.

I've been tempted for a while, but other than Crysis I haven't found any benchmarks suggesting an upgrade from 4gb > 8gb is worthwhile for gaming yet. Most show a slight decrease in frame rate.

Definite benefits for apps like Photoshop and video editing though.
#19
Depends,it can virtually lower di power, but it is better to have something running smoother than stattering. It is all about quality of the frame and not about the quantity to an extent ofcourse. I was amazed at a certain point as i was playing crysis. I went in to the TASKMANAGER and was saying 7+gb phisical memory in use for a total of nearly 10gb inc. of virtual memory. It would have not been running smothly with only 4gb. for sure.
Obviously it all depend of the power of the system.

If you missed out, try this one. Warning it is 2000Mhz!!!!
Make sure your MOBO support it!!!

I have 8gb in my system, and wondered if it made any difference, so removed 3 of the sticks to just have 2gb, and in pretty much all aspects of what i use my PC for (mostly gaming) it was unnoticeable, As you say though definite benefit for media editors

Gigabyte GA-EP43-UD3L, E6400 2.17GHz @ 3.1GHz, Arctic Freezer 7 Rev 2, 4x1GB OCZ Reaper 1066 @ 1040MHz, Gainward 4850 GS. Everest, Prime95, HotCPUTester, various tests, longest test was stable for 8 hours.

I'm a Newb overclocker so a couple of points from limited knowledge (please set me straight if you actually know what your talking about, but advice to all is don't take O.C advice from muppets who pretend to know all, of which there are many!)...

The heatsinks only matter if you OC otherwise just buy normal ram -much cheaper.

I think that a factor in 2 dimms being better for overclocking is that the 2 sticks would be matched. So in order to get the 8GB it would be 2x4GB rather than 4x2GB (which would be two matched pairs). As you O.C all of the RAM at once, ideally you wouldn't want to OC unmatched pairs (so any 4 DIMM setup). Having said that, I do this, but I got a good deal.. and we're talking about "ideally"/theoretically. I don't actually have the experience to comment of the degree of variance across unmatched sticks/it's affect of performance.

I would have thought that using 4 instead of 2 will also have an effect of the efficiency of the controller but i don't know about this.

The excessive amount of ram would prove useful to all pc owners if you turn the virtual memory paging filesize off, forcing the pc to use the hardware rather than the hard disk because HD read/write is the slowest part of like 99% of systems (note that you cannot turn all virtual memory off but just the paging filesize). When I did this (just about getting away with it with only 4gb ram) i now run crysis warhead, farcry 2, medal of honour, fallout new vegas, on ultra whereas before they had framerate issues.

Cheers,
Will... still **** off about that XFX 4870!

bryngreen are you Nvidia or ATI? I'd guess NVidia because don't ATI use shed loads of ram to support gpu operation so it would affect games more?

I ordered a kit of these a few weeks back from cclonline.

A few quid more but they have them in stock

Got this memory in mine. Superb.
Well, 2x2gb anyways, with 4gb that came with my comp (making it eight)
Recommend it to anyone, unreservedly
I'd have snapped this up no bother though if it had've came up a little earlier.

Spent several hours today comparing Scan v Corsair Web v ASUS web looking for memory for M4A89GTD PRO USB3. I cannot find the same 1600 memory listed between the 3 (specifically between ASUS and Corsair) Best I could get was mem listed on Corsairs web that I could find on scan. Crazy. I think I've wasted half a day. Wonder if I should downscale to the Crosshair Formula 4 but that only supports 1600 with overclocking and I don't know much about that. I doubt I'd have much luck trying to find mem suitable for OC if I can't find std memory, and Corsair only listed 2 memories suitable for the Crosshair. AAAAAAAAAArrrgghh!
