Firefox addon email me last night of the up coming deal, your right i couldn't find it anywhere on the todays deal listing, otherwise this deal would have gone by.

I still cant find this deal under lightening deals!
Only through your link.
Excellent deal. But I'm looking for faster DDR3... no deals that I have seen.
What firefox addon are you using? Many thanks

Keepa - Amazon Price Tracker, very very useful addon, as for this deal i'm in 2 minds of getting it, i'm running 8gb of this DDR3, with intel 2600k, getting old now, thinking of building a upto date intel this year i think like a Kaby Lake, so not sure about upping the memory in this machine would be a backup machine if a new build comes along.

If you're not doing the likes of video editing then I doubt you'll need more than 8GB. Even for gaming 8GB is still ample.
Saying that this is a good price for RAM and you could probably sell it for similar money when it comes to upgrade.

The 2600K is still a great chip. Loads of life still left in it although I know too well the feel of the upgrade itch

its good ram. I used it and it can be overclocked to 1866 MHz also if someone interested. I run it over clocked for a week before selling and it was very stable in my system. my opinion its better than the 1866mhz Ram.

Bought this from Amazon lightning deal around the end of November for £40! X)

Crucial isn't great ram IMHO, budget for a reason. Corsair, Kingston or GSkil far better.

I know what u mean but my 2600k OC to 4.2GHz undervolted, got a Samsung 850, don't do games. Stuck 16GB (2*8 ) 1866 Crucial tactical(?) in for £52 just before Christmas - Didn't need it but what the hell and 1.5v as opposed to my 8gig Kingston value OC 1600 @ 1.63V.

It would so much £££ to upgrade and I would not get much from it,

Plus there is the free Win 10 issue.

@red_me765 Kerby lake chipsets don't support HDMI2/whatever the copyright protection is, without the MB maker adding something - Or something like that.

Yes i have noticed the price hike of most of computer components since around july time and this ram in particular, amazon had hiked it big time on the 12th, then dropped a bit day or so later, but still expensive even with this so called lightning deal, in the end i never bothered with the purchase, i've decided to wait and add the cash to the next big upgrade like a new system build, possible Kaby Lake but i think i may go with the Skylake.

Micron Technology (Tier 1 manufacturer) owns Crucial Technology.
They (premium overclocked memory modules) all use Micron memory chips, they pay a premium for the best silicon chips Micron make.

Urgh, annoyed I missed this.

Any others deals like this?
