This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Inexpensive and reasonably decent RAM. Prices are going to be creeping up in the next 6 months so it is worth considering if you might need some now.

Yeah. I build gaming PCs so performance is everything


Indeed, although it depends on if you have to accommodate a price to performance balance in the build.

Not suggesting to skimp on RAM speed, it being so cheap presently, but on a small budget system the saving of £20 on one component that may lose a few percent system performance can be put towards another that would add double digit gains.

I had this very argument with someone who was convinced they should get an Intel 9700K, but they only had a GTX 1660 Super in the system, dropped the 9700K to an R5 3600 with a quiet cooler, and the £160 saved bough the RTX 2070 instead. Different amount of money but the principle remains the same.

Nice deal, why are ram prices expected to hike over the next few months OP?

Several reports coming out of the DRAM market analysts have said that there is finally going to be a depletion in the oversupply in the market and they expect Q2 '20 to show significant increases in contract prices, not just spot pricing.
This is one reason we are going to see price hikes

Heated, seems to be the best price for 32GB by quite some margin, just wish you could get 2 x 16GB sticks for the same price as my board only has two slots but this is so cheap I'm actually tempted to just get this and buy a better motherboard when I can...

Buy SSDs now too rather than later in the year as they will go up too.

The rumours were akready out before this but it will obviously have an effect
I'm speccing up a Ryzen build just for Linux. Ryzen 5 2600X, 1TB M.2 , 32GB DDR4. I don't think this is great RAM for Ryzen though.
It is a great deal if you need high amounts of ram for Media Editing or CAD work but for general usage 8GB or for gamers 16gb of higher speed RAM would be better utilized. I have a 3600x with an RTX2080 and 16gb of 3333mhz ram and normally max out at 70% RAM usage for gaming with apps open in the background.

Ryzen loves fast ram for boost clocks and overclocks.

Unholy price!

Indeed, it's not to bad. I try to actually post deals that are cheap, rather than 'random RAM that is 50p cheaper than it was yesterday' as to me that doesn't seem like a 'proper' deal.

Although I did post 32GB at £63.69 not long ago, that was an extra special deal for the few late nighters.

Yeah. Only downside is the ram speed. Otherwise excellent value

It's only downside if you need fast RAM, I build so many 'normal' systems that 2400MHz is more than enough.

Also most modern DDR4 IC's on RAM modules will OC easily. This is rated at 2400MHz, C15 at 1.2v, if you put it to 1.35v C15 it'll more than likely run at 2933MHz+.

Madly cheap for so much quality ram
No showing as £164.20...
excellent i have a spare Z370 mobo sitting around for this to go in , good find .
Off the deal question: but would I see much of a performance boost going from 32GB at 2400MHz to 32GB at 3200MHz in gaming?

YouTube videos suggest it would be minimal (~10fps).

It would be coupled with i5-9600k and 5700xt.

I’m itching for something to upgrade but don’t wanna drop the money for a negligible difference in performance.
Didn't get round to ordering

Now showing as £178.59 when added to basket!

Wonder if was price error given the difference?

Nope, it's just Amazon being Amazon. When stock gets to a level, price gets hiked... Gangsters!! :-)
Expired?
Ordered in the morning. Perfect upgrade from my Corsair Vengeance 4x4. Heat added. I have Skylake i5 6600k with MSI Z170A Gaming Pro.

For productivity level of work total amount of ram is always good as you can keep more data in the ram. But having a faster 3000mhz ram will also have benefits but I am not entirely it is massively noticeable. Maybe when rendering it will be a bit quicker going for manually tuned 3000 or 3200.

For 3000s Ryzen 3200 seems to be a sweet spot for maximum ram performance in terms of total throughput and latency.

For gaming I think these might be gimping your performance. On any title you are not GPU limited you will notice the frame drop. But tuning the timings may get it to perform to level similar to 3200 XMP. However it is to note that at CPU bound titles you are talking about probably 10-20 frame drop from something like 120-160fps. So does that really impact on your experience.

This is brilliant advice.
