For those who missed out my previous post: hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…542

Faster memory (2000Mhz), but higher latency.

MAKE SURE THAT YOUR MOTHERBOARD SUPPORTS 2000Mhz RAMs!!!

LUCKY YOU THEN :-)

But, if my motherboard supports 1800mhz , can still use it? My understanding is that it will only downgrade to 1800mhz but with the advantage of getting better latency compared to a normal 1800mhz, I think. Am I correct or I got it wrong????
Thank You

Better check your manual what exactly it says.
For instance my Asus P7P55dE LX says supported memory:

4 x DIMM, Max. 16 GB, DDR3 2200(O.C.)*/1600/1333/1066 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory
Dual Channel memory architecture
Supports Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP)
*Hyper DIMM support is subject to the physical characteristics of individual CPUs. Some hyper DIMMs only support one DIMM per channel. Please refer to Memory QVL for details.
**Refer to asus.com or this user manual for the Memory QVL(Qualified Vendors Lidts).

See link below:

So it is hard to say.

Not only does my motherboard support 2000MHz RAM sticks - my keyboard allows me to toggle between SHOUTING and typing normally!

Well spotted. Good stuff.

very nice memory - I paid 20 quid more than this elsewhere a couple of weeks ago; scores 7.9 (highest possible) in Windows 7 system rating.

Never caught the caps lock before ?
Well, as the feller said LUCKY YOU

Do you reckon these would be worth more in say 2 years, i was thinking of buying a couple if i could make money later?

Well, based on previous experience, there is a big possibility. Yes.
Trend seems to be : newer - cheaper.

DownHill911, cheers mate!

RAM pricing is not like that of other computer components as RAM chips & sticks are traded in the same way as commodities such as copper, pork bellies etc.
That’s why RAM prices can and do fluctuate wildly over fairly short periods. So unless you have specialised knowledge buying RAM as an investment is fairly risky.

See dramexchange.com/ for current spot and contract pricing.

agharta thats 1333mhz, this is 2000mhz.

I thought that was self evident!
I mentioned it here because some people might be interested in another 8GB DDR3 deal regardless of the speed.

how do you catch the caps lock - then turn them off to write the hz in Mhz and then turn them back on again? That logic doesn't make sense because he would have actively had to turn the caps lock back on after he realised.

and actually on the internet caps does mean shouting!
