Its the cheapest RAM I can find for 8gb 2400mhz, actually 2133mhz is more expensive from what I have found.

It probably clocks higher than 2400mhz, I've yet to find a set of ram that can't do more, but if you just want to run stock then this is fine at 2400mhz.

Buy 2 and you have 16gb for less than £60. Hope this helps someone.

I know, I posted it lol. But yep, good to mention for potential buyers!

DDR4 seems to finally be coming down from it's high, but this is a nice spot. The HyperX is a fair bit more if you are buying a set of 2 or 4 then it is £14/£28 more expensive
Buy ram in matched pairs only. I want to buy 32gb or 64gb sodimms.

With big volume suppliers like Amazon the chances are that you are going to get two sticks from the same batch if you order them at the same time. Paying extra for 'matched pairs' really doesn't make any sense, you can always return them and try again if the RAM chips have different batch codes on them.

I have worked on a integrated chip packaging line, if you had seen the way these RAM chips were treated before they go to laser mark, solder and saw, you really wouldn't worry too much about paying any premium.... each batch has hundreds of RAM chips all cut from the same wafer and when you buy two DDR4 sticks you are only buying 8/16 or 32 RAM chips max (dependant on density of course)

Yes that's what I meant, buy in pairs not singles. Never meant to buy kit only.

Maybe he wants to run a RAM drive for something. RAM is so much cheaper than it once was that it is a lot more realistic to use for every day users and not just pricey servers. The again, SSD NVME is pretty quick these days compared to the performance a HDD could give not so long ago. Who knows!
