Yes, it's Overclockers but you find a better deal. Personally, I've never had a problem with them, except most of their prices.

I've looked around and this is the cheapest that I've seen for three 4GB 1600MHz sticks of RAM. The only thing that comes close is 6x2GB RAM or 1333MHz.
For under £140 even excluding delivery this is a killer price; you can get 8GB for nearly as much as this. £143.09 including next-day delivery.

I haven't checked the price with the novatrise code, however.

I'm really tempted by this although I bought a pre overclocked bundle from them this time last year with 6GB (3x2GB) included. I wonder if i just popped those out and pop this 12GB kit in, will it still be stable.

Damn that's a lot of RAM!!!

When overclocking a system the RAM settings are modified as well. You can remove the overclock by resetting the settings in your BIOS but if you want to keep the overclock then you'd need to find out how.

Decent price for 12gb of Ram!

Chances are unless your existing RAM is set to run at faster timings these will just plug and play without affecting the overclock. Best to go into the BIOS and make a note of the settings (especially the CPU voltage/fsb/multiplier settings) So you can put them all back in if needs be.


Most of the half-decent boards these days have the ability to save the current BIOS settings anyway, chances are OcUK have probably done this already to save time in the event of customers calling them with problems, if you're a forum member float the question and I'm sure you'll get the info you need.

On the issue of whether you acually need all that RAM, I'm very sceptical. Just picked up a 12Gb Corsair Vengeance kit myself a couple of weeks ago and apart from running at lower votage (which helps with the overall overclocking headroom) I haven't come close to needing the extra, the vast majority of users will barely ever get close to using 6 let alone 12 gigs.

It's a good price, yes, and having used Geil RAM in the past I'd definitely recommend it for quality but unless you really need all that capacity probably better getting something like an SSD or putting the money towards a gx upgrade tbh.

[Edit] Having had a look at the image provided of this kit, anyone agree with me that using the word 'value' on the heatsinks is a big mistake. Hardly something you'd want to show off in a nice new windowed case. Probably just me being snobby.

No chance of reading that, it's too small even if you have a disco going on inside your case.

i have decided on a 24GB Kit. And had it confirmed by Overclockers that the overclock will still be good. Whoho!

Good job you had the foresight to install Win7 Pro or Ultimate otherwise you would have been limited to ‘only’ 16GB with Home Premium.

Yeah went with Ultimate as it gave me the most options

GeIL 12GB kit down to £119.99 inc VAT this weekend. Ruddy hell that's a good price. Paid more than £120 for 6Gb 6 months ago.

Good price for 12gb - shame overclockers are selling it.

Overclockers are utterly appauling when it comes to RMA/returns.
