Cheapest DDR4 this year? ADATA 8GB DDR4 for £39.97 and in stock!

Edited by:"RustySpoons"Found 23rd Nov
I've already bought a load of DDR4 and paid a LOT more than this, wish I had waited now!
This has to be the best deal so far this year?, it's in stock and available on prime.

ADATA XPG Z1 8 GB DDR4 2400 MHz CL16, looks to be a single 8GB stick so grab a pair or 4.

Yes it's not the fastest ram in the world, but can't see why it won't OC a little better if you need that marginal increase in performance.

Can anyone help a noob out, I'm out and about and don't have time to research, just bought the Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 1060 last night. No other parts yet, do I need ddr5 like the card or can I get this? And is it good enough? Thanks in advance.

Wow that is cheap. Bought 8GB Corsair 2666mhz for £93. Sending it back as bought 16GB G.Skill Flare X 2400mhz for £128

use uk.pcpartpicker.com/ to see compatibility...you gtx 1060 has nothing to do with the RAM.

noooooooooooooo

You need the RAM your motherboard and CPU support. GPU RAM makes no difference.

You can buy DDR4 as long as you get a motherboard and CPU that can support it.

Not in stock when you add to basket
Got me excited.

This has been this price for months, it's a prime exclusive item.

OOS

Thanks got one

Just remember, DDR4 2400 will severely impact the performance of the latest 8th Gen Intel and Ryzen CPU's as they are quite sensitive to RAM speed.

If you've got an 8th Gen Intel CPU you would want a minimum of 2666Mhz, ideally above 3000mhz.

With a Ryzen, given that the infinityfabric interconnect between the cores runs at 0.5xRAM speed, the higher is always better.

These aren't just slight increases in performances, these are really big jumps.

FYI: CeX have some DDR4 at higher speeds at similar prices on their site, comes with 2 years warranty too.

Intel isn't affected by the ram speed as much. In fact many of the coffee lake reviews were carried out using only 2400 ram.

I've actually managed to order two of these, let's hope they come😁

Ryzen is not as much affected by RAM speeds as much as dual channel. Many tests indicate that DC is better than higher frequency RAM for Ryzen. Results may vary depending on tasks as always, tests I'm mentioning are strictly gaming tests.

Damn it! late again. not even an hour since it was posted.

Whilst what you say is true, my statement was made with the assumption that everyone is running dual channel.

In this day and age, anything but dual channel is the absolute minimum.

Back in stock

Just got 2, hopefully work well and 2400 isnt too slow for Ryzen, I've seen some conflicting reports. Maybe I'll try a mild OC, there was now other way my budget could stretch to 16GB without lying to my wife anyway. Anybody think I just made a bad decision?

Just got two also, I just checked my motherboard I ordered and the specification said it only had 2 ram slots as I ordered the 4x4gb ones that were out of stock and checked to see if they were selling the 8gb ones and as luck would have it they were in stock after checking all day. Result!

Same with me, saved my money for black Friday and got myself the ryzen 1600 from scan and a motherboard from amazon warehouse and then. this came in stock so was well pleased. Just hope it all works now, delivery on Wednesday.

That I WOULD NOT recommend at all.
Overclocking that aggresivly from 2400 to 2933 would mean a big enough voltage offset that I'd be afraid myself to use the memory.
The max I'd go with OC-ing this is 2666MHz, with as little as possible voltage offsets.

And yeah, the DC speeds can vary 10FPS in many games, although difference from 2133 DC vs 3200 DC is like 20FPS tops. At this time, with the prices as they are, 2400 at this price is a great option.

Personally got myself a R5 1600 waiting at the shelf from amazon like 2 weeks ago for 143 pounds.
Need a mobo and RAM. Didn't get in time for this RAM, but I got a b350m from asrock pro 4 for like 60-70 pounds.

To be honest I don't know how to overclock ram, I'm just going to let my motherboard do it automatically to a safe overclock. I just bought a new motherboard and R5 1600 so didn't want to spend much on ram as I think the prices are ridiculous too. I got my motherboard from amazon warehouse for 50 pounds with just the box dented. Missed out on the ryzen offer as someone commented from here that it was the new set price for all the cpu then it went back up the day after. Got mine from scan for 158.99.

Most motherboards won't even do a ram overclock.
It all depends on the CPU overclock itself as well.

I'd advise not doing it automatically.
There's been a lot of stories that auto oc-ing ram looses up the timings so it sometimes runs even worse.
If you really want to do it, look it up youtube, forums, do enough research.

Then, benchmark your current PC at the things you do mostly / most commonly.
Tinker around with the settings.
Benchmark again.

Calculate the procentages of how ahead are you of base settings, and is it worth considering power consumption (unless ur parents pay ur bills).
You have to take in consideration the system stability and other factors as well.

Good luck on your journey and have nice time with your Ryzen CPU
I'm sure going to have one myself

Thanks, I've got a gigabyte motherboard that has a utility called easytune that automatically configures the ram, I'll try tomorrow when I get my cpu and ram and set it up. If it doesn't work well then I'll watch YouTube videos of how to get it to 2666 as you suggested 😊
I just googled eaytune, not sure I'll bother now.

I bought it from Amazon and it was the only kit left at the time. Just got lucky. For info it ran at 2400mhz out of the box and yesterday I raised them to 2666mhz by manually entering the higher clocks and keeping voltage on auto. It booted and ran no issue with the voltage at 1.35v and the timings untouched. Flare X are made specifically for AMD Ryzen which is why I wanted them in particular. They may well clock even higher but I've put them back down to 2400 for now.
