Suitable for AMD?
good to know i would've been too slow anyways. Fumbling around with my card tryna double check if i typed it in correctly.
I'll keep an eye out for similar
Thought it was gonna be me, got all the way through PayPal and everything (mad)
Lol, literally only 1 available and someone snatched it up quick.
I got one in white. Very good case. It is tempting to buy lookalike cases but they let down by a poor quality finish. Look for the corners and edges, paint will easily flake or show defects.
For sure, easy to build in case too
Paid £49.50 for this a while back, without a damaged box. Really good case though.
I know, i posted it up already mate
White colour is £62 on Amazon
There is airflow at the front with a mesh filter, it pulls from the sides.
I find the airflow pretty decent.
Dunno if your joking but no ahaha, could leave a external one on the top ;)
Gutted that I paid 80 for mine but it's a really nice clean case, I have 2 data ssd's and 1 mechanical HDD + an m2 drive. All fits nice and cables are easy to manage.
I just use mine for gaming now mate ahaha, it was originally built for where I work but someone new started who only really liked mac so i snapped it up real quick (lol) . So happy with that because i spent so long picking the parts and looking at all the Adobe etc suites and what parts would be best to do xyz, definitely fate in came into my hands (lol) . If you want i can price up how much it costs to build my system now days?
Great advice mate, I will wait for real 10 gen reviews. I need it for professional use, so less about flashiness but more about reliable continuous power-horse productivity. Adobe After Effects (multiple layers), Unreal engine, 3DS Max etc What do use your beast for?
Both amd and intel is safe choice fella. I think maybe give it a week or two until more 10th gen reviews are out. And i don't have any temperature concerns with my current case, only thought about upgrading to something else because of it being more flashy if that makes sense? I find airflow fine tbf. I looked at the COOLERMASTER MASTERCASE H500M MESH but only because it's flashy if that makes sense? Are you building one for hobby use or professional use? What kind of video resolution are you looking at?
Thanks. I agree, I’m going for the Intel mate - safe choice! Now the question is, do I go for the i9 9th gen (9900k) or the new 10th gen? I believe we need more GHz than cores. I guess, having the top components is great but pointless when the case traps in heat and therefore degrading the performance, rendering, exporting etc. So regarding your case how do you find the airflow? Which £200+ case are you considering? Really appreciate your advice mate.
Mine arrived today from Amazon. Incredibly impressed with it.
I have this. It's great.
Thanks, ordered the Amazon one!
Thanks. Good for those hot summer days where your forearms stick to the desk.
Little bit off topic. Gamers Nexus just released this mat. Unfortunately shipping to UK is almost $14, half the price of Mat. https://store.gamersnexus.net/products/gn-wireframe-mouse-mat If anyone interested, we can band together to order 2 or more and split the cost.
I haven’t much read into timing vs MHz. But previous post gave a spreadsheet where someone has gone to the trouble to test every combination out. The C16 and C18 doesn’t mean it is 2ns out of 18ns difference. There are loads of sub timings as well to consider. For instance I am currently running C14-16-16-18 I think at 3400Mhz. I can also get stable clocks at 3609Mhz but C18/20 timing. The difference in memory bandwidth and latency is not just those timing figures. I decided to settle with 3400Mhz as I require less volt and it was marginally faster.
Thanks for this. So: - IF speed affects a lot of things. - RAM timing only affects speed at which CPU communicates with RAM If the RAM is rated to run at a higher speed (3600MHz vs 3200MHz) but a slower CAS timing (C18 vs C16) then stability is pretty much guaranteed either way, and surely 3600MHz C18 would then give better performance than 3200MHz C16?
Amazing how much prices have dropped on these. Paid around £160 for the same kit in 2018.
great deal, however, the timings are awful. 20-23-23-43? people can probably get 3000/3200mhz ram and get it running at 3600 with lower timings for sure.
You have the actually bus speed which the ram communicate with the CPU as well as the timing ie the amount of time in ns the CPU has to wait to send out the next command to fetch data from the ram. Faster speeds means more commands can be sent Shorter timing means less wait time between each fetch or write command or latency If you have faster bus speed but have to wait around a lot longer to fetch the data then it is no better to have slower bus speed but able to fetch data much quicker. Generally speaking lower bus speed will result in less RAM voltage being applied and more stability in the system overall as the ryzen CPU has what is called Infinity Fabric - basically a network of IO circuits linking RAM, PCIe bus, serial bus, parallel bus etc etc to the CPU chiplets as well as inter chiplet communication lanes. It’s not a very elegant design but it seems to work well enough.
Can't be any worst then the awful Verbatim pinstripe, can it?
Bought 2 and had to send one back after formatting it it became write protected still awaiting a reply after sending it back
I've bought refurbished Corsair before, only USB drive to ever fail on me (and a few of mine have been through a full wash cycle and survived!). Once returned and replaced, the replacement died too, I just gave up on that one. Don't think I can trust Corsair USB Drives again. :-(
Hence why it’s always good to keep 10-20% free at all times!
I had problems with 2 of my products from Mymemory. Well, no problems, but there were a bit different than the description. I contacted them and in within 24h I've received the reply. They refunded for one of the products and told me to keep it, while for the 2nd one they sent me a label and I've posted it, received the money back once the postman scanned it as sent. I think you can also print the label from their site.
Got 4 of these, can oc them to 3600 cl16 pretty easily on ryzen. Decent memory for the price
Low latency is better for intel and higher frequency is better AMD Ryzen
I can't remember the exact technical term but the "infinity fabric"? utilised the higher clock speed to gain CPU performance. So the sweet spot for the 3900x is 3600mhz to 4000mhz
Sold out :-(
MSI gaming Pro carbon ac. I can't remember why I picked that one.
What motherboard do you use? I'm unsure which to go for
On Ryzen platform which is much more susceptible to memory timings and speed. Intel is not so sensitive.
I’ve seen several people on the forums saying they can’t get their 2000 series CPU’s over 3200mhz even when using RAM rated at higher speed. Others manage it but there seem to be a silicon lottery.
Cheers I'll take a look. 2600x on a b450. Shame really as the CPU and my 1070 all overclock easily
If you are running Ryzen then look into the Ryzen RAM calculator, here is a start If it is Ryzen 1000 & 2000 series from what I read they don’t achieve the same RAM speeds as 3000 series.
I got a 16gb pair the other week and it just wouldn't run higher than 2133mhz, tried a Z170 board (i7 6700k) and an x570 (ryzen 5 3600) messed around with voltage.. Manual timmings etc. Just wouldn't boot. Got crucial Ballistix ram and it worked instantly.. Even preferred the RGB
Christ I can't even get mine to overclock at all. Like zilch, I have to reset CMOS every time I try.
Back in stock again. £64.99 with the COMPONENTSFNDD and a (possible) 1% quidco, bringing my total cost down to a shade over £60. Good deal for a gold-rated PSU. Thanks OP. Gopes
Hi there, can you post the link please?
Got it yesterday! Suddenly my RX580 stopped rebooting my PC! Great buy!
Out of stock I'm afraid :<
Just purchased via eBay. Got 5% off and used some Nectar points...so ended up paying £53.99. Looking forward to installing inside my Thermaltake V1.
That's a shame. Will pass. Does the Pro version suffer from the same problem?
Nope, makes no difference even if wired. That said, even if it isn’t connected to my computer, it still hisses. It’s just a badly isolated speaker or something, forums are rife with it.
Can't find any mention on YouTube, but the various forums seem to say it can be adjusted through sound settings. I had to do this with the Blue Yeti mic also. Is the hissing only via wireless? Can it be wired at all?
Bought a pair of these. My advice is to avoid avoid avoid. Shame because they have so many of the ingredients to be a great valeu headset. However, do a quick google search for "HS70 Hiss" and you will see nothing but complaint after complaint of hissing. Mine is affected more in the left earcup than the right, but it is an unnaceptable amount of hiss. Shame.
You can get a refurb HS50 from scan for £30 delivered. I just received my pair, looks new but I'll be sending mine back as its very bass heavy for my liking. I'm currently using a 5 year old pair of Turtle Beach Px3 on my pc and the mic on it sounds like an actual studio mic, not a tinny pair of headset mics. Got a pair of Arctis 1 on the way, hopefully that sounds better.
paid by barclays visa debit card
Bought these for the same price back in October... were they OoS?
Ah I had the other thread open at the same time ;( (lol) I do mean .de sorry
Yes, these are E69 from Amazon.de. E4 post, max 3 sets per customer. I ordered yesterday and they are coming today, so i assume UK Amazon and Germany are using the same source... They worked out at 209 euros delivered inc P&P, so 209/3 = 69.66 each all-in. In GBP it's about £61.10 which isn't bad. (working on rate of 1.14) They are only CL16 units though... so overclock headroom will be less than with CL15 modules.
Is this a new thing? Just tried with starling but got this total Its ok, i think you mean from Amazon.de I think both of these are shipping from Germany as both are saying Friday as delivery date
Prices have steadily risen since the start of the year. I bought 32GB 3200MHz Patriot DDR4 for £129 in January, a few weeks before 32GB was around £100, now it seems to be around £160 mark. Presumably it will rise, especially when the massive unprecendent economic collapse kicks in by around October this year.
Latency expressed in CL works out in actual time based on the frequency. At 3600mhz cl18 equals 10ns just like cl15 at 3000mhz so this is actually fine- higher data throughput and the same latency. Having said that i bought crucial ballistix sport lt back in feb on a deal from here and currently am running them at 3800mhz cl16 so for some sticks there is quite a bit of performance to be extracted at a good price.
Was the ram on the QVL?
These are currently €66.90 on amazon.de, with delivery comes up as £66-£67.
I don't like the latency on this ram,, personally I would get crucial 3200mhz ram.. Lower latency and you could potentially push it to 3600mhz. I also had corsair vengeance rgb Pro the other day and it simply wouldn't boot with anything higher than 2133mhz on my asrock x570.. Got the crucial Ballistix rgb ram and it worked instantly
Looking at getting the ASRock steel legend B450. Not going for the 4000 series when they come out so likely not going to get B550 tbh
Great choice, what board?
I'm looking at them getting the 3300x and pairing it with 2 X 8GB 3600 C16. Heard 3600 will work well with the 3300x
If anyone is upgrading to Ryzen and is looking for RAM, please choose faster than this
Just so you lot know with Prime, I ordered the 3200 set on Thursday from Germany and it arrived on Saturday. Puts our royal mail company to shame with whats going on.
Sorry I meant to say it’s an Imac desktop
No good I'm afraid. You need DDR3 sodimm (specific for laptops). I'm surprised they used DDR3 in 2015 though! Really need the model number.
Hi all Im looking to upgrade my Mac late 2015 ram would this be any good and is it a ddr3 ?? I’m not good with rams and the tech stuff so your help would greatly be appreciated
Well explained although the performance varies depending on the use and it's not necessarily worse. To expand on it slightly: RAM performance depends on data throughput (which increases with frequency) and latency (where smaller is better and it decreases as the the frequency goes up and the timings get lower. Some tasks favour throughput other latency, but both are important. Frequency is especially important with Ryzen where the Infinity Fabric clock is linked to RAM (up to 3800MHz on ryzen 3000) which affect performance.. The basic formula is (CAS latency/RAM clock speed) x 2000 = CAS latency in nanoseconds Here's a calculator if someone wants to try this out: https://notkyon.moe/ram-latency.htm Basically 3000MHz CL15 and 3600MHz CL18 Both give 10ns of latency, so 3600MHz CL19 will have higher data throughput but sligltly worse latencies. than 3000MHz CL15 kits. Overall fine for the price if you don't overclock and own a Ryzen CPU, but I do overclock so personally I'd also take the Crucials too. I got the older LTs 3000MHz from a deal posted here back in Jan in Feb and got them running at 3800 C16
Yes, speed can go up. Ryzen 3000 is far better at RAM handling than previous gens and 4 sticks vs 2 sticks can improve things sometimes. This is an interesting watch... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhMYmEu8gks 2 sticks is preferred when trying to push overclocks because it's easier to manage and control 2 sticks as opposed to 4, but apart from that, there doesn't seem to be much difference. What would be far worse is running single channel RAM, that has quite a sizeable impact on performance.
Yeah, it's annoying because it's a really good mouse besides that. I'm using the switch profile/dpi buttons under the mouse wheel to switch tabs, but it's not great. I think I'll get the g604 at some point.
Having used the tilt click feature as next/previous tab in chrome/firefox/groupy etc for the past couple of years I can't go back! Anything without it I just can't bring myself to use!.
Might have to try. Ty
I don't have it but have seen it in person. They aren't that small and also have texture so you know where you are clicking. Muscle memory is an amazing thing though.
So many.. buttons looks tiny
Also had some issues here on x370, couldn’t get to run at any decent speeds.
Micron CJR based and not playing ball well at all on X570. Going to return these.
I'm fairly certain the new Mac Pro can have 1.5TB RAM and yes it does cost a fortune. https://www.zdnet.com/article/how-much-will-1-5tb-of-ram-for-your-mac-pro-actually-cost/
How long before 1tb ram is a thing? (shock)
I’m currently using 2400mhz with my Ryzen 1700x, would I see much benefit from upgrading to this?
No. same ram
Thanks for the replies everyone (y)
Total PC novice here... Is there a difference between the Scan and Amazon products?: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/corsair-lpx-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3600-c18-memory-kit-8826-at-amazon-3460994
In synthetic benchmarks yes. In game difference much clearly visible. Buy it and test it yourself
