Yeah, have had experience of that vapor-ware at amazon

How come the price of RAM has increased in the last year or so?

Higher clock speed as well.

Lol, not true, in fact DDR2 old RAM is more expensive.

No it isn't. If you were as omniscient as your sarcasm suggests, then I wouldn't even need to answer that question. Since you would understand the reason why it is more expensive.

Hope you will post some relevant links to back that up.
I would argue it is just a marketing scheme, and would ask you why the price fluctuates so much, is the quality going up and down?

The only objective reason ever sold to customers was the Hynix factory being hit by storm/fire. No quality improvement claims.

In fact, I bought a 4GB 1600mhz DDR3 A-data for £ 12 almost 2 years ago (and it was even cheaper 3 years ago), and it was the same quality.

But hope others will contribute with more to this discussion. No sarcasm in my post, I assumed your 3 words answer was a joke, as most 3 words answers are.

Have you ever tried overclocking a cpu with cheap memory modules?

Plus, memory modules today have the additional cooling fins, in all quality modules anyway, and this will increase cost.

Consumer memory is not quality.
My desktop memory came with cooling fins and is £30 more expensive than 2 years ago. Memory prices have always fluctuated as it's been considered a commodity. Over the years it has become vastly cheaper to manufacture and is not of the same quality they used to stick in mainframes, which cost multiples of 10 times that of consumer memory.

Cooling fins on laptop memory ???????

You see, although I posted a link to back up my post, and invited you to do the same, you didn't although you were the one that seemed to take offence in my post.
Yes, I did try to overclock CPUs with cheap memory.
Overclocking CPUs does not have to have anything with overclocking memory.

Also, this is cheap memory, CL11 is nothing special. You have no idea what you are talking about yet you do not even leave room for the (remote) possibility to be wrong.

In an attempt to educate you, here is the module I bought in 2013 for £12.60: amazon.co.uk/gp/…XBM
You can see in the comments others reporting the same price. Now it is £43.69 !!

Do you think it is good for overclocking because it is now expensive? It is also CL11.

Also used successfully in Macs as you can see in the amazon comments.

But did you notice any cooling fins on laptop memory ever ?

I apologize, I was misinformed, I wasn't following the memory trends a few years ago and I wasn't even in UK.

But I believe the following link shows your claim true even better.
