3200 CL16 performs near enough identical to 3000 CL15. Plenty of tests have been done to prove this theory.

Thanks!
Currently running 2x8GB of this at 3000 with a Ryzen 7 2700. Stable and fast - great stuff. Only the M.O.D utility is annoying as it needs permission to run every boot. Otherwise just use your motherboard RGB software.
Ram prices are really good at the moment. If you are thinking of getting some extra ram for your system. Now is a really good time to do so.

Agreed. However PC Part Picker is suggesting that prices for RAM are trending upwards again now.

..be fully aware everything's going to sneak up in price over the next year and indeed beyond that there may be a huge spike in prices. Not paranoia.. it's exactly how the markets are set to work in the immediate future. Importing is creeping up across the board so if anyone's thinking about it.. start buying now or save for a year and a bit until the markets even out properly.
I hope they don't whine like a lot of theses tracers do.

try setting the properties of the program to run as administrator and this may go away.
Makes me sad how cheap ram has gotten

3600mhz is the sweet spot for ram on Ryzen.

It's worth paying the extra for that you know you will be getting a good bin.

For ryzen 3rd gen, sure. But not really 2nd gen. anyway, you can probably easily oc this to 3600mhz with any decent mobo.
It's an ok deal, but tbh, if you want value for money, the Ballistix are better and if you want RGB, there are better looking ones out there imo like the Trident Z range.

You want to build almost the whole system for £200 not possible with good quality new parts £400-500 is realistic giving you nice gaming system and solid base for future.

1600af (YD1600BBAFBOX) - £85
mortar max b450 - £85
rx590 - £150
psu - corsair cx 550w to 650w are £60
case- whichever you prefer most cheap ones are same build quality

these look like they use old chips some they wont be like you se now b die or revE which can be overclocked also if you have a good board 3600 is still good point for ryzen2 it just doesnt benefit as much as ryzen 3
Advice please.

I currently have an AMD Setup - Ryzen 5 1600 / X370 Gaming plus mobo / G.Skill TridentZ F4-3200C16 (8GB 2 x 4gb)

Ram is here: amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

I dont game. But I do some video editing, GoPro family holiday videos which is ram and processor hungry.

Would this ram on offer (I planned on buying x 2 so 32gb total) be better than what I already have?

I dont know (obviously) about ram so dont know what to look for.
I also saw this one here: hotukdeals.com/dea…695

Again - any advice appreciated

Yes the ram you linked to is very good ram for the price. The speed and timings are good and can be overclocked. But I wouldn't think you'd want to do that anyway.

And 32GB of memory will help you to a great extent for video editing.

Thanks for this.

No you are right, I've never been interested in overclocking as no need for what I do.

I've now ordered this one on offer and will sell mine through fleabay or Scumtree to pay towards the new 32gb set.
My only thought now is, I'm going from 8gb total to 32gb total....... do you think that might be overkill? Wondering if I should return one set and stick with just 16gb? Money is not a problem, its just whether I will notice the difference or not at all..... happy to spend if needed, but if a waste I'd rather save £66

Thanks for help - appreciated
I hold onto both sicks of ram for now. As memory pricing is set to go back up in price. Which will increase the second-hand value also?

Another thing to think about is. How long do you plan on keeping your current motherboard and ram? If it's say another 4 or 5 years then you might want to consider keeping it all. As future software that you might use might work that much better with that extra 16GB.

Also, another thing to consider is. That with 2 sticks. You'll have duel channel working on your motherboard. I'm not sure if that would make much of a difference, however. Without looking it up first.

I bought 8gb x 2 (16gb) then 2 lots so 32gb total.....
I thought for £130 it seemed like a good deal, but on reflection might be overkill? Lol

It was cheaper to buy 4 sticks (2 x 2 sets) than buying the 4 stick version which was £194.

ok two 16gb sticks is best run in dual channel but doesn't really matter in your case plus 32gb is more then enough so it should do for the lifetime of the machine.

If you have not done so update the bios.

people on a budget or using gen 1 or 2 ryzen also because it states 3000 doesn't mean it cant be overclocked it depends on the chips used.

ideally its better to go for 3600mhz you know it hits the sweet spot out the box plus tends to be better quality.

Thank you.
I've updated my Bios just as part of general maintenance.

I was thinking 16gb might be enough, but ordered 4 sticks totaling 32gb in error - but for the price I might as well go overkill. Hopefully video editing will be a bit quicker now!

Bar a little video editing for family GoPro videos, some MKV file conversions/movies then it suits fine. My gaming days are Xbox only now, PC is just ad-hoc bits here and there so this ram seems perfect for my needs
