    Crazy price!

    Thanks OP bought one for my HTPC

    •  

      What do you run on the HTPC? Mine just does mostly Netflix and media playback and never even come close to using up 8GB

      •  

        Could be a gaming HTPC.

      •  

        Plex and CCTV (Ubiquiti Video).

        Might start emulation soon. And possibly run a Virtual machine on there to separate the CCTV from Plex or use for downloading or as a NAS. Haha

        Was gonna just get 8gb for it. But at this price, it was impossible to say no!

    Was about to get this but realised I need DDR3 ram.
    I'm SODIMM.

    Not sure if this is anything to consider, but the 3200 speed stick of this model doesn't oc to the advertised speeds without stability issues.

    •  

      You sure? I have been using the 3200 MHz Corsair Vengeance LPX for 3 years. Some lucky guys got to manually OC them to 3666 MHz even.

      Some mobo actually got compatibility issues. Most are fixed with BIOS update.

      •  

        I did suspect a mobo issue, i'll have to check it out. Had the PC for 12 months and the stock speeds haven't bothered me but I may as well try to get it running at the speed I payed for.

        •  

          Should do, it's almost always recommended to update mobo BIOS, unless craptastic Gigabyte on series 300 AMD that once fried CPU from crap BIOS. Their 400 is better.

    With 12% cashback this is even better.

  •  

    I'm probably gonna sound like an idiot but please help me out 😂.

    I'm building a PC and I'm just wondering, in regards to RAM, I've noticed (I think) the little notch in the bottom of the ram moves position with different sticks, how do I know which RAM will be compatible with my motherboard?

  •  

    good for nuc?

  •  

    Nice, had my eye on these for a while. Price just keeps dropping. Any ideas how warranty will operate? Probably need to send them back overseas?

    •  

      Yep got to send back overseas. I'm in the process of RMA my gigabyte x470 gaming 7 WiFi that I have to post to gigabyte technology California. You need a USA address so I'm using shipitto mail forwarding. If I don't get a replacement I'll be pissed.

        Actually, since you bought through Amazon Australia you should be able to go back to them with the faulty RAM and they’ll send it where it needs to. They can’t force you to go back to the manufacturer under Consumer Law.

        • +1 vote

          Plus, it's amazon. They'll probably just throw you a new set.

          Not sure how good it is in Aus mind, but it'll be better then an overseas RMA.

        •  

          I bought it from Amazon.com USA. With Amazon you have 30days to return it and after that it's warranty through the manufacturer. This is the same for Amazon Australia.

          •  

            @mckayver: Only if buying stock from Amazon USA through Amazon AU. If buying local stock directly from Amazon AU they have to play by Australian rules, and you have the choice to go to the manufacturer or return the item to Amazon AU for warranty.

            Actually, as they take payment at the AU entity they might be required to follow Australian consumer law for the sale?

    Was going to get 16gb 3200mhz $189 from pc case gear but for this price ordered two after cash back about $216 for 32gb 3000mhz thanks for the post

  • +2 votes

    Checked back and I paid $252 for this exact set ~1 year ago :o Couldn't resist this price with the 12% shopback cashback, decided to upgrade to 32GB with a matching set (even though not immediately necessary).

  •  

    Thanks! I have been tossing up upgrading from 8GB for ages! This deal was too good to pass up.

    If anyone is interested, they also have the C15 version for $147 (timings are much better at 15-17-17-35) https://www.amazon.com.au/Corsair-Vengeance-3000MHz-Desktop-...

    I bought this to use with a Ryzen system :)

    •  

      Is it a big difference with c15 and c16?

      •  

        Usually lower timings allow more headroom for overclocking, and more likely to be compatible - at least with Ryzen

      • +3 votes

        Ordinarily the difference between just C15 and C16 wouldn't be worth the price difference there, but the C timing (C short for CAS, which is in turn short for Column Access Strobe), is just one of a handful of primary timings.

        Usually timings are in similar increments for the same model from the same manufacturer. For example, one RAM kit may be rated at 3000 MHz 15-17-17-37 (15 is CAS), while the next most expensive model might be 14-16-16-35 (14 is CAS) - basically just an incremental improvement between each kit.

        In this situation, Corsair's LPX C15 kit is rated for 15-17-17-35. However their LPX C16 kit is only rated for 16-20-20-38, which is an unusually high difference in the other primary timings compared to the C15 model, given that the CAS latency only changed by 1.

        Recommendation:
        If you're using these with a CPU that cost more than $200, the faster kit for $20 more may actually be worth going for. If the CPU's less than $200 then the $20 premium for the faster kit probably won't increase performance enough to justify said price increase.

          Interestingly they have bumped the timings up from revision C of these RAM modules, which is a more reasonable 16-18-18-36 (this deal is for revision D). Maybe to resolve some out of the box compatibility issue with certain CPU's? I will try running these modules at the lower timings when they arrive.

          •  

            @Beejay: Could be, especially with Ryzen's initially problematic memory compatibility. Might also just be they changed suppliers or something and got slightly lower quality chips / whatever as a result, but obviously both are just speculation.

            Interesting in any case that the revision made them worse not better spec-wise.

          •  

            @Beejay: Most likely cost cutting so they decided to get a different batch of memory chips (inferior but cheaper).

            For PC parts, newer revisions don't always mean better. A lot of newer revisions of routers cut cost and even change the CPU inside (and with reduced memory).

            Also, if you already have another pair of memory modules in the system already, mix and match isn't a great idea normally (especially if this set has inferior ratings than your existing ones). XMP option will probably be out and you will probably need to go manual memory settings.

    •  

      Also 3200mhz C16 for $155

    •  

      Does it run at c15?

      I have a corsair set with the same speed and timings (but 8gb only) paired with a B350 motherboard and 2200G, and it simply refuses to run at c15, it automatically increased to c16. I later found out that Ryzen doesn't like odd cas.

      After some simple testing I settled on 3200MHz 16-17-17-35.

    Anyone had any experience returning an item on Amazon.com.au but if it was brought from the Global Store?

    •  

      Yep got to send back overseas. I'm in the process of RMA my gigabyte x470 gaming 7 WiFi that I have to post to gigabyte technology California. You need a USA address so I'm using shipitto mail forwarding. If I don't get a replacement I'll be pissed. Bought on Amazon.com USA.

    •  

      Depends on price. I got a free G600 mouse with some minor defects as they gave me refund without returns. On the other hand the more expensive Corsair HS70 required a return overseas.

  •  

    Is this a sign that DDR5 is just around the corner?

    • +1 vote

      It's a sign of dram market slowdown, memory chips not selling as well so deeper discounts and cashback promos, e.g. Samsung's ssd cashback promo recently

      •  

        Don't think it's demand slowdown. More driven by supply catching up and over. Memory industry has always been going through these boom and busts

        Off the back of samsung, hynix etc getting done for price fixing and controlling availability. Let the memory flow

    • +2 votes

      Usually when new gen of memory launches it always command significant premium. Not worth holding your breath if you are planning to upgrade in the next 6 months.

    •  

      Intel has CPU production problems. AMD responded by taking the opportunity to make more profit by upping the price of its CPUs. That cut CPU and system sales, so there was an excess of RAM available. Intel is only a month or two away from getting its CPU production back up to full speed, and at that point there'll be a lot of people who put off buying systems because the CPU they wanted wasn't available or cost more than they wanted to pay, and there'll be a shortage of DDR4 RAM available.

      CPU price goes up, the price of RAM goes down, then when the price of CPUs go back down the price of RAM will go up. So the good bet would be to buy the RAM now for the system you are planning to buy in a couple of months.

    Good for new ryzen 2700x build?

    Price will continue to drop. The 16g per stick remains over price.

    • +1 vote

      Based on what it's already >50% price drop in less than 12 months… my take is this is about bottom so good time to buy

      •  

        Not really, this price is similar to the price before end of last year. When you compared it to 2016 prices, RAM modules are still overpriced. Not to mention most of the ones on sale at the end of last year all had better specs than this.

    I am not sure wheather it works on my lenovo ideapad 320. Can anyone guys help to to find out. Thanks in advance..

      Laptops use SODIMMs so don't get these. These are for desktops. Even intel NUCs use SODIMM too.

  •  

    Ordered two (2 separate orders 10mins apart) one has been posted and should have it next week

  •  

    Man, Prime is truly unreal. Ordered last week when I spotted this deal. It arrived on SUNDAY (!!!) via DHL, the guy even called me on my mobile because he couldn't get past the security gate. Where else can you get free international delivery that arrives within a week (and on a weekend), heavens to betsy.

    Mine I had to wait till they got them back in stock ordered 19th ended up getting them on Wednesday 2nd
