Price is HOT but COLOR is FAIL!!!
Make sure nobody can see it in your case.
P.S. Once installed in mobo it will be fine.

It's camouflaged so you will not be able to see it;)

Just over £30 quid for 4GB? Cheapest I've seen for branded DDR3

can anyone tell me if i bought 2 of these kits would it work in this mobo

It should be fine, just check the ram voltages on the motherboard website.

dammit! only upto 1333 or 2000 O.C not 1600MHZ support

if only they made those gigabyte i-rams for DDR3....

Great product and price, thanks OP

It will be fine, AM3 mobos support DRAM voltages of up to 1.7V on default, the lower the better. All you have to do is overclock your HT (bus speed) to match the memory divider or run it at 1333MHz.

These DDR3 memory prices are making me sick, I paid 3 times as much (literally) a year ago for a similar pair of Patriots

I had done my post partly inside his quotes, thanks to the tiny box for posts on the forum.

The content is the same, just moved my post outside the quotes.

i wish a cheap ddr2 post would come along

just run belarc on my mobo and its a PEGATRON CORPORATION Narra6 6.01

its pap for upgrading, 2 banks for RAM and 2 for PCI. i really want to change it but im happy with the Athlon II X4 620 thats on it.

great price, just miffed i got 8gb lol!

Just to let you all know, OCZ are coming out of the RAM market so expect alot more well priced deals, but also be aware that after-care support is also to likely to go down the pan for them.

Hot price for 4GB

Bargain! I have 8gb 1066mhz in my rig, just checked though and my mobo can't handle 1600mhz so I can't upgrade not sure i'd even notice the difference to be honest, but deffo a bargain for someone in the market for some ddr3!

Yes they are but all warranties are to be honoured, so it should not be a problem.
I'm not 100% sure but i think ocuk have deal with ocz, and seem to be buying up a lot of their extra stock. So i don't think you will any better than this.

realblender

wont a faster memory just clock down to your system automatically- so … wont a faster memory just clock down to your system automatically-> so match the slowest 1066 stick. ? (This is a question)



Basically yes.

shimagoza

Basically yes.



It would if you mixed sticks, but I meant replacing all 8gb and selling the old sticks!

Wow @ this price. I bought some corsairs 1600mhz 2x2gb about a year ago and they were £75.

Bought a pair, thankyou!

As mentioned OCZ are pulling out of the memory market at the end of February, so expect prices of OCZ RAM to fall as online stores try to shift their remaining stock.

It is decent quality enthusiast RAM, but if you are buying some for a new build in the hope of being able to buy more matching sticks later on you will be disappointed.

omfg at the prices, grrr RAM dropped fast.

Banned

Looking at that i'd rather stay with my DDR1 400mhz

a good price and if it was any other brand it would be HOT, but as its OCZ I will refrain from voting

i want to cry after paying for £64 for the 1600Mhz corsair dominators i've only used for 1.5 months :(!

Brilliant deal ordered

hoping for a £50 8GB kit deal. Couldn't care less about the clock freq.

The deal here is great for a midrange gaming rig

VashTheStampede

if only they made those gigabyte i-rams for DDR3....



Cost me Nearly £500 for i-ram + 4 gig ddr (just as I bought the i-ram )( when I wanted to test it, ddr went up sky high to £83- a gig so 4 gig of kingston ram cost me £320 ish

1.55-1.65v. So bear in mind this would not suit a sandy bridge build. Latency is alright and for this price its a steal. As for memory speeds, they make very little difference in reality, unless you are building an extremely fast 2k+ machine and even then its +/- 3-5% performance in very specific applications.

Its my understanding that OCZ support will contiune as normal, they are just going to focus on SSD drives in the future as opposed to ram. Smoking hot deal.

Be funny if Oczs marketshare for SSD disappeared. Pulling out of a too competitive market to sell overly inflated priced goods. You cannot really blame them.

Corsair dom's are vastly better than this stuff, so dont feel too bad. On your stuff you should be able to tweak your already low CAS timings without much effort at all. And Corsair > OCZ, for just about any component you care to name. (look cool too :))

What latency Corsair's have? 8-8-8-24 is pretty good @ 1600MHz.
I have big selection of DDR2 memory and only OCZ Platinum can support 1T command rate.

This RAM is not good according to reviews. I would not buy it at any price. See here:
newegg.com/Pro…558

Dom Kit's for both 8-8-8-24, and 9-9-9-24. This is DDR3 so comparing it to DDR2 is comparing apples and oranges.

Corsair kits are always top quality and allow a great deal more flexibility in their voltage settings. Despite this Ram is a funny beast, dont always believe the marketing hype - stick it in a mobo and check its actual performance, i think you will find a direct relationship between expensive kits and "truth of advertising".

I would expect same line of memory to be good across different technologies. In other words if OCZ Platinum DDR2 is good I would expect Platinum series to be good for DDR3 as well.
From DDR2 I know that only Rippers and Platinum series are worth buying from OCZ. Everything else is marketing hype.

Only difference between DDR2 and DDR3 is speed and latency. DDR2 tops out @ 1333MHz and DDR3 goes above 2100MHz.
Btw, DDR2 @ 1066MHz with 4-4-4-10 is faster than DDR3 @ 1333MHz with 9-9-9-24.

Im afraid ddr 2 prices are only going to go up due to the fact hardly anyone makes any now and those that do still make it wont do for much longer.

great deal, shame i already have 8gb of similar stuff.

Not sure if the question was answered but if a motherboard can take upto 2000mhz memory oc'd then it will accept anything lower than that (1600) asuming the voltages are right of course

Interesting - quite a high number of negative reviews about getting this to run at advertised speeds...

You will probably find OCZ Ram going cheap in a few places as they are pulling out of the RAM market.
