Found 20th Nov
With RAM (and especially DDR4) prices now as ridiculous as they are, this seems like a good deal even if it is 4x4GB rather than 2x8GB.

Currently out of stock but can be placed on back order.

That is very cheap by today's standards. Good find. Just paid £129 for 2x8GB of 2400mhz G.SKILL Flare X. And that was cheap! Although it was also in stock!

Yeah I can't believe how the prices have skyrocketed. Back in late 2015 I bought 16GB of HyperX 2400MHz from a deal on here for £57.

Yeah I bought 16GB(2x8) Corsair 3200Mhz iin June 2016 for £72. The exact same pack is now £190.

This deal is a really good price, the only potential downside is that on most motherboards it will fill all the RAM slots, leaving no room for more later. However for most people 16GB will be more than enough for a long while yet.

Good deal but be prepared to wait a decent amount of time. I've had various different versions of this same RAM on order for anywhere up to a few months. Have also received some as well so it's not a myth

The problem for me tbh is that the heatspreaders look quite big on this and I'm not sure if my cooler would fit if I used all 4 slots.

given ram prices atm it would be cheaper to buy whatever ram you can get cheap and buy a new cooler than to buy low profile ram.

Depends on how you remove them I suppose. I'd prefer not to though tbh.

What cooler do you have? Some are designed to let you lift the fan slightly to give extra clearance over the ram.

Hyper Evo 212 atm but I also have a VTG 5 currently en route.

Pretty sure you can move the fan up somewhat on the 212, no Idea about the other one. Of course thats no use if its the heatsink itself hitting the ram. On the Evo you could also move the fan to the other side of the heatsink, and have it pull air through rather than push. I just had a quick look on youtube and it looks like you can adjust the fan position on the VTG 5.

I got really lucky last month and bagged adata 2400 8gb for 40 from Amazon. Have been checking every other day for the same deal but it seems a one off. Could only buy one at the time. Delivered in a couple of days to NI. It would be interesting to see if this set ever gets delivered to anyone. Its had this delivery note on it for a while

The Ryzen boards can be picky about RAM. You're best bet is to look on the manufacturers website for the compatibility list for your board.

I ordered 1x8GB of 2666mhz Corsair for £93 with the aim of upgrading later on. But the G.Skill was on another £35 for double the size, slightly slower ram. Flare X is designed for Ryzen and should OC higher if need be. So I'll be sending the Corsair back.

Oh I ordered that too, my thinking is if I find a cheaper deal I'll send it back. Happy to keep it if not though, no point waiting for RAM prices to fall, if anything they look like rising further.

Marginal at best. Unless you're looking to squeeze some extra performance, I wouldn't bother tbh.

You will be really lucky if they will be in stock. Amazon do not have a clue on stock date.

Good deal if happy to wait.

I always check pcpartpicker.com for compatibility before doing a build and it says these will work with ryzen 1600.

I've been checking to see whether they became in stock every day, not sure whether just to order them and wait or wait until black Friday to see if other ddr4 cards become cheaper.

I think RAM deals are probably out of the question on Black Friday because supply constraints are the reason for current prices & retailers simply don't have enough stock to do a worthwhile promotion.
I would like to be wrong though

I'm not trying to be an ****** but why people still bother with AMD is a mystery. You can get deals on older Intel chips from the likes of AliExpress if you're really looking to save money and Intel always just seems like less hassle in the long run.

So what cheaper processor and motherboard for an rx480? I like AMD.
I'd rather buy on Amazon prime for next day delivery for most things, learned my lesson buying from scan and waiting nearly a month for delivery for my graphics card.

Think I'll wait till Friday to make sure, hoping to get a cheaper processor and motherboard too so don't really want to wait too long and have the parts just hanging around waiting to be used.

Cores on their own mean nothing, honestly. I fell for that one before with those AMD FX chips a few years ago. A fat lot of good those turned out to be. You see the same thing on mobile these days with those Hexacore and Octacore chips from MTK.

A year or so ago you would have been entirely right, but Ryzen is a massive jump forward for AMD. So much so it forced Intel to release coffee lake way earlier than they had planned too. Core count is now starting to matter more, especially for tasks other than gaming (video rendering,etc). But even in gaming 4 core/4 thread CPU's are starting to be the limiting factor in some games, likely due to the x86 multicore architecture of the current gen consoles.

Developers are going to have to get better at using multiple cores because unless a new method of making CPU's is found they're starting to hit the clock speed limits the current one can handle.

I agree with you. I moved to i7 myself because i5 wasn't really cutting the mustard in BF1, especially in the bigger online matches. It would take a lot for me to go back to AMD though, I'll be honest. I used their hardware almost exclusively for a good few years but they just let me down too many times.

I wouldn't use them atm either but at least now they are heading in the right direction and actually giving Intel some competition to push things forward. Intel have been able to coast along with tiny upgrades each generation due to lack of competition. Now all of a sudden the 8700K is the biggest jump in performance for a long long time. Its also funny you say you almost exclusively use AMD in the past, I did too. My current CPU is actually the first Intel chip I have ever had, All but my very first PC were AMD, my first was a Cyrix 300 in the late 90's.

I got the 3000mhz version works great with Ryzen. You can overclock these abit too.
