I have been watching a lot of RAM prices recently and this seems a good deal for 3000mhz 16gb. Usually 2400mhz is this price.

Amazon have also matched it this morning.

Cant see this getting any love as RAM prices are creeping back up again but it does seem to be the cheapest about.
Might have to get on this as I currently have a 1:1 ratio of VRAM to System RAM and that will never do darling...

£5?

Ask them, I think they will go for it.

Im looking for 16gb kit for gaming is this what i should expect to pay? Seems expensive, was hoping to spend more like 40

speed makes little difference
(as long as you have a graphics card)

8GB to 16GB should not make much diff either... Some but not a lot at all, not worth doubling the cost IMO.

I already have 8gb but its cheap ram only 1600mhz. It works but i wanted to upgrade because i noticed some games using up to 10gb page file, is that normal? I thought maybe its because there wasnt enough ram

I have [email protected] . What do you think would be the difference between that and [email protected] for example? But mainly the page file is what bothered me i thought it was a lot

1600 is DDR3 speed, this is DDR4. Sounds like you will need a new motherboard/CPU to take advantage!
RAM speed impact is fairly minimal anway so I wouldnt worry - its not worth the upgrade cost just to get faster RAM.

Ok thanks maybe i wont bother then. What about the page file usage i mentioned, do you think thats normal?

Not really no, sounds like a poorly optimised game with a memory leak (...and then some!). If it bugs you just bang 16GB DDR3 in there and see if it helps! Should be very cheap on fleabay.

Bought this deal this morning. Flubit offered £70 so went for it

Would this work on a z97 motherboard?

​That was a likely misprice for a few minutes that might not even be honoured. Not a valid comparison imho.

Flubit £64.22 - awesome.

Use flubit to get it to around 65!

Where?

@todesign, maybe one for you?

Looks like the normal price. It's the same price at Amazon and has been for the past couple of months (lowest price £59.99 in May). There's also some 16GB 3000Mhz Patroit memory for £71.99 at Amazon.

Bear in mind that RAM speed has little effect for most users, depending on your setup and use case it's often better to spend the money elsewhere.

Nothing special as a price. For example i just got shipped g.skill 4000mhz 8gb for 52 eur... sadly price went up after i ordered a week ago /amazon Germany).

Platform dependent for sure. Skylake loves DDR4 RAM speed though. It'll gobble it up and give you decent returns on many apps and games.

Gskill Trident Z 3200 £80.96 at Amazon has been £67 so the Corsair isnt really a good buy its normal sort of price. The Gskill is really nicely made, i have Corsair Vengeance LP in my rig and its alright but id rather have the Gskill

Those benchmarks were conducted on a system with 2x 980Ti in SLI, which isn't representative for most users. If you look at the last page of that article you'll see a benchmark with a single 980Ti instead, which shows little (although slight) improvement.

While true for some of the games, the previous page shows apps gain as well....

What's more if you have a fast skylake system there is a good chance you will pair it up with a single GPU as powerful as 980ti SLI in the near future. Pascal Titan X is pretty much there, 18 months time that will likely be a mainstream part.

As I said I definitely agree that faster RAM can be better in some use cases, like APU builds, SLI setups, workstations etc. But I see too often ordinary gamers spending 20-30% of their budget on memory which is unlikely to make much difference when they could either have better a GPU, CPU, more RAM, nicer audio etc... And page 3 of that article is misleading if you don't read the test system on page 1 or 4.

Here's a few more gaming benchmarks on a single 980Ti system. I'd definitely be interested to see how a Titan X Pascal performs in the same DDR4 benchmarks, and if/how much double the VRAM would affect the benchmarks.

Assuming that Titan X is close on the performance of 980ti SLI, which it isn't far away in many games, you can expect similar results. IMO Titan X is better than 980ti SLI really, for 4K but mainly just as it's one card and it's far more consistent.

However gaming is just a narrow field. I use handbrake and photoshop all the time, queue up lots of movies, encode and such as well. Enormously popular programs. RAM speed in those makes a really significant difference on that particular platform, it's a really impressive gain. The apps tested show that for the most part you gain with Skylake and increased memory speed.

You budget the best you can on memory. No point buying the most expensive, but on a Skylake system at least it matters quite a bit more than it has in the past. It is worth people's attention. In terms of price 3200mhz is the sweet spot right now i would say. More than that typically the cost exceeds the gain, at least until prices change.

yeah, i imagine the sort of people who would buy this will love stuff like "deadpool"

We'll have to see, faster memory has always been better for SLI setups due to the limited VRAM, so I'm sceptical that faster memory will have such a big affect in a single card setup with a card which has double the VRAM.

Hopefully we'll see some DDR4 benchmarks soon with Skylake + Titan X Pascal or (eventually) a 1080Ti.

If you have flubit give it go, I got this for £64 on Saturday

Damn I miss the times when DDR BH-5 CL1.5 was all the rage. I remember fondly my competitive overclocking years, forking out a fortune for a used 2x256MB DDR1 pair that could do 340+ MHz 1.5-2-2 with a 3000rpm 12cm Delta fan, that sounded like a jet engine, blowing over them. All that for a 0.001 sec improvement on SuperPi 1.5.2 XSmod. Or the mighty TCCD that could surpass 400MHz. I don't know why I'm writing all these on Hukd at 3am; maybe I'm nostalgic, maybe I'm drunk.

Faster ram will keep more of its resale value. For gaming it mostly helps to raise the minimum framerates during gaming. A faster CPU will also similarly bring you higher min frames. Each up to a certain point and of course depending upon which specific game.

Often its not going to affect the average framerates much at all, which is what you see in most benchmarks. Only at infrequent peak load times when the game gets a lot happening at once and gets temporarily bogged down for a brief time. So does that affect your gaming enjoyment enough to pay the extra for the faster ram? Will it significantly lessen or improve the experience?

When you compare all the DDR4 frequencies, 3000 Mhz - 3200 Mhz seems the best prices at the moment. Wherat about 4000 Mhz is rather expensive for what extra benefit you might be getting. Having said that there's nothing very special about pricing of this particular deal and several other 3200 Mhz kits are usually available at a similar price.
