Saw this on reddit, I'm not sure if you're allowed to post deals from somewhere else so credit to u/Stunt_ignition for finding this awesome deal.This is a really great price because most ram is around ~£90 where as the cheapest ive seen is £80 and this is £65!Putting this in my first build

Heat from me. Excellent memory. But still life left in my 4770K / 32GB DDR3 / Z97 build.

Anyone know the CAS latency on this?

Yep this is a great deal, went ahead and ordered some for a friends build. May not be the fastest but you wont get 16gb cheaper anywhere else. Heat

Nice! I've been looking for DDR3 though... can't justify new board for DDR4

Looks like a good price but wondering if it’s worth just adding an extra £25 and getting the vengeance 3000mhz for my VR PC build?

I read that changing the latency of this is easy , having it at 1.35v you get it to cas 12

Thank OP this will look great on my asus hero mobo

F'ing scorching!

​I was going to wait until the new version is out of beta. Enjoy your mobo and ram for under £195!

This one posted is 2400mhz/CL16, and the one you've got on your link is 3000/CL15, so it's a speed difference.

The 3000mhz ram that you linked to is faster than this (including Latency) which is 2400mhz.

Real life though, you won't really see the difference between the two. Just pop in your motherboard, open motherboard bios, enable XMP Profile and you're away.

This time last year you could get 8gb of DDR4 for about £40 oO

will these make much difference is gaming compeared to 2133

If you are CPU-bound, yes. If you are GPU-bound, no.

Perfect timing for a price error.



Heat.

Thank you so much for the clear explanation. Now I have to decide whether to pay almost £30 more and return the RAM that I've just got and get this slower (not that much) and save £30... hmmmm....

Get this, save your cash for better CPU/GPU.

How does it compare to this memory (currently £70.54 for 2 x 8gb sticks) ??

Specs are identical, better heat spreaders on the red modules.

Not a expert on this. but it seems to be a common misconception that ram speed does not matter, It does make a big different of games running 60-70 ish fps on 970/6500K can get a 5-10 fps gains on, that thats a huge ~14% increase in fps. not sure how much different this case will make tho

It's not time to change, especially z170 doesn't bring much to the table.

So many mistakes were made here

Nice find. Bought some, would be rude not to.

[quote=So many mistakes were made here[/quote]

what do you mean? benchmark show 5+ fps boost on 2500K/GTX 970 at 1600mhz ram to 2133 mhz ram on digitalfoundry?

like i said, i am not an expert but benchmark show 5 fps plus gain on faster ram, but i alway heard ram speed doesnt really matter. so its confusing

Got the HyperX Savage 2x 8GB kit for £55 before Xmas, admittedly DDR3.

Is DDR4 backwards compatible? Just a rookie question. What actually happens if you put DDR3 in a DDR4 spec rig or vice versa?

Im in the same boat i have Z97 build with a 4690k and 16gb ram and ive saved up £800 to upgrade but im holding back to see what AMD's Ryzen has to offer against the new 7700k Kaby Lake thats why i never grabed a Z170 Asus Hero board the other day although i was very tempted. If leeks are true a £350 AMD can destroy the £1000 intel CPU but lately im questioning if its worth upgrading. I read a review yesterday of the new intel Kaby lake CPU's and it was said that its just a 200mhz jump over the current CPU's and you would only see a noticeable increase in speed if you were coming from Sandy or Ivybridge CPU's if you were on Haswell its better to keep your money and wait for a proper replacement which would be next gen CPU's.

The moon would shift out of orbit and smash into the earth (just north of Leeds as it happens). This would set off a chain reaction causing the world to explode in a huge fireball from which only James Blunt and Trumps barnet would emerge unscathed.....

Actually only kidding - DDR4 just wont fit in a DDR3 slot - the notch is in a different place & there is a different number of pins

Will this be compatible with i5-6600k since the frequency for that processor is 2133MHz allowed. Friend of mine had trouble with higher frequency ram since the pc kept rebooting as the processor couldn't take the ram frequency. It wouldn't even boot.

It should be. At worst you will have to go into to bios and manually select the right frequency that you mobo/cpu handle. I plan to use this ram with a low h110 motherboard that is only 2133mhz but I know it will work. If im not mistaken higher frequency ram can always be slowed down.

Thats more than likely either duff ram, or the motherboard didn't like the ram.
I've got a 6700k with 3200mhz ram (which also is listed as up to 2133mhz), and I've built two 6600k pc's both of which run 3000mhz ram.

AMD's own demos have showed their chip very slightly ahead with similar power consumption to an 8 core Intel i7 so what leak have you seen?

is this overkill for am office build? no gaming just multiple tabs and a small amount of video editing?

Probably unless the video editing is of the demanding type and can utilise the extra RAM but if you don't edit often may be an indulgence! But at this price it's minor one.

This deal has gone but the memory I linked to earlier is still available at around £70 for 2 x 8gb sticks.

Weird old pricing with RAM on Amazon the last couple of days.......

Price gone back up to £93.58 now.
