Bargain. The other colours are at least £10 more. Good spot!

Hey man, just a heads up; that link you gave is for a single stick of 8gb RAM, wheras the OP is for two sticks of 4gb RAM. So don't go buying that particular item if you want dual channel RAM

will it still function normally with one stick of ram?

Yeah it will do but its better to have pairs

So get 2 x 8GB

It's not a great price normally but considering RAM has gone up this is a good deal if you need it now. If your happy to wait the price will come down again.

The crucial one is better. It's rated for operation of 1600 MHz and CL9 @ 1.5V not 1.65V like the Kingston one (1.65 is bad for the memory controller on your CPU).

EDIT: However I don't listen to my own advice because I bought some HyperX Blue which is rated at 1600MHz @ 1.65V When I've got some money I'm going to buy some better RAM. I only use 4GB at the moment because I don't want to take the risk wrecking my CPUs and haven't used it since I found out it was 1.65V. I might even sell it. I wonder what I'd get for it. oO

Wow this is not that special is it?

Heat added, but I think I'm ganna wait for the after Christina sales for RAM. I have a feeling 8gb of ddr3 16 will go for maybe 40. Especially as Overclcokers do some amazing sales starting Christmas day.
