DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000)
CAS Latency 16
COMPATIBLE WITH BOTH AMD AND INTEL PLATFORM
2x4GB I noticed earlier is also on sale
That's the slower 2400MHz model.
Aw right. Either way, vendor support for these kits is that low you'll probably end up on 2400 anyway tbh
Upvoted for RGB
Nice, hitting the price of what 3000/3200 was for 2x4
Anyone come across any good 16x2 deals?
That was a good deal.
Not the best stuff, likely you will get 2933Mhz, and the height can causes issues - but at least prices are trending down.
No, it is highly unlikely that the RAM will only run at 2933. It is very likely that the RAM will run at it's SPD speed. Unless there's somethng about Ryzen that I'm missing.
It may run at higher speeds after overclocking.
Ryzen will have an AMP strap for 2933MHz, and not 3000Mhz. You can easily get 3000mhz by putting the speed in manually, so maybe that's what he means.
You can't get exactly 3000, but can get around that number. From the review the 2933 seems the most use, taking into account the other timings - so worth taking that into account for Ryzen.
The timings themselves aren't great for Ryzen, which rewards fast speeds and tight timings.
Love my ram Super Loose
Sometimes it do be like that.
Sorry for…dumb question
I'm about to replace my DDR4 2400 16GB (2x8GB) for this "DDR4 3000 16GB (2x8GB)"
basically DDR4 2400 to DDR4 3000
[Z170 i5 6600k GTX 960, haven't been overclocked]
Yes, it will be fine. I've got a 7600k and benchmarks showed a couple percent increase when I went from 2333 to 3000, but don't expect anything exciting.
It should be fine, however should you experience any stability issues after changing the Ram, then look for and update the BIOS of your motherboard as manufacturers often address compatibility issues with BIOS revisions.
my old 2133 ram is cas14 …..all these fast rams seem to be cas 16 ….. am i really gaining anything if the refresh rate is more cycles ?
do we get better cas than 16 at these speeds ?
You're right. Last week's deal for G.skill was CAS 15… Seems the expensive gear is lower latency.
Here's a chart coarsely detailing the impact of latency as a product of memory frequency FYI:
It will make a difference. Whether you think it's significant is up to you.
