Not the best price for DDR4 is the last few weeks, but the cheapest I can find for 16GB currently.

thanks, i have been waiting for this to drop back down to the £70 mark
Wanted a red set but at this price gonna go for it.

@op are you referring to the BT shop deal? they cancelled all orders
hot price
Excellent price, but not a Prime Member even though need it for a Ryzen build . Activated my free Prime membership, so sadly cannot use this avenue to obtain the memory.

Although I believe the yearly fee is worth it, just setup a second account if you don't think you will make use of it.

Do you know if they check card details or addresses for duplicates?

Just had these delivered from the last time they were this price.
Put together with my Asus Prime B250M-K motherboard, Intel G4560 and this ram and it flies.
Well I did replace an Asus P5Q-EM motherboard, Q9550 and some Corsair DDR2 memory for this budget gaming build but impressed with performance all round for less than £200.

There's a couple of 16gb DDR3 kits on amazon around the £70 mark but with long delivery times. I managed to find a Ballistix Tactical Tracer kit for £72 a few days ago with a 2 week delivery, not sure if it will turn up or not.

If you're desperate CEX sell 8gb sticks for £30

Probably, if you relax the timings a little. But they don't OC well, they're cheap DIMMs. Personally I went for these at £92 (4x4GB 2666mhz CL15) using the Amazon Fresh Promo (£20 off of £60+), so £72. Plus they're RED!

They'll overclock to 3200:

Not that I am aware of. As I say, I believe it's worth the fee so I just pay it.

I have seen people on here get a new account monthly - doing that once a mouth isn't worth the time for me with warranties etc.
I'm so tempted by this but I think that if I were to buy DDR4, I'd only buy if the speeds are 3000MHz+, especially since usually both 2400MHz and 3000MHz run at CL15 anyway! 2400MHz just doesn't seem that big a jump from DDR3 IMO.
I spent 4hrs solidly looking for ddr4, and couldn't find anything this low...went for CMU16GX4M2C3000C15 @ £118, do you think I should cancel the order and go for this? It is 3000mhz CL15, and I do like the design (white led)...
Depends on your budget, I'd rather spend the difference on a better CPU/GPU.
Bought this last month at this price as well - runs great with my G4600 on a MSI B250M Mortar motherboard.

Unless you are a benchmarking nut this will be plenty fast for most people, you wouldn't notice any difference in most tasks/games, especially if you are running a B250 chipset as it is limited to 2400ghz anyway - don't buy into the hype.
If you want to notice faster in games/heavy duty software then put your money into your graphics card first then CPU.

You won't find 16gb of DDR4 anywhere near this price at the moment... must remember to cancel my Prime trail in 3 days though!

tempting for my upcoming ryzen build...

I doubt faster ram will make much difference.
Mine turned up today, hopefully I can oc them to 2666. Just need to buy the rest of my build lol
For those who don't have Prime, Flubit will still make an offer on the £70.54. Sadly though, they're only offering 1-2% off.
Excellent deal, might just have to return my 8gb which cost me £56.99 for this one! Thanks op.

Make a new Amazon account with gmail and every month just put a dot > . in a different place in the email address when making a new account. I imagine Amazon will stop this at some point, it didn't stop me getting Prime free for some 6 months though.

I built a PC with ddr3 and left it under my sister's bed when I moved to N Ireland. Remind me to harvest that next time I'm over!

Edit: just realised that PC was built 2013. lol. Maybe leave it where it is..

Why is ram so expensive these days?
