    Crazy Cheap!

    I got mine for $350 from Newegg.

    One set was DOA though. It was an absolute pain to get a refund. Newegg won't exchange for another set for international orders. Only refunds. So I had to send them back to some depot in Sydney who sends back to Newegg. When they received they only gave me a $300 out of $350 refund due to a 'restocking fee' which is not right because it was DOA.

    Had to open another paypal claim for the extra $50, there was heaps of back and forth emails with newegg and paypal about this.

    Took about 8 weeks in total just to get my money back! By the time I got the money back too, the same kit had went up $20

    My other kit is working fine, but Newegg International warranty is only 30 days and non existent after that.

    Thought I'd share my story for any of those wondering about warranty.

      G.Skill will provide direct international RMA for all their Ram, so in your shoes I wouldn't have bothered with Newegg. Last time I RMA'd RAM with them (Oct 2018, no receipt), it cost be $11 to ship the Ram to Malaysia, They shipped the replacement kit back to me using FedEx at their cost. The process took ~10 days.

      GEIL also provide direct RMA. Corsair on the other hand are complete @ssholes who insist on handling RMA only through regional distribution, and demand a receipt.

      • +5 votes

        Yup. GEIL, G.Skill, Kingston (can ship it to local dist.), and Crucial don't need receipts whatsoever so it's essentially a transferable lifetime warranty on the product itself. Corsair tries to shaft you with the invoice required thing and it's not even a transferable warranty either. If you buy Corsair second-hand, you're shafted unless your name matches the invoice (i.e. https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/915083-will-corsair-rma...) or you get the person who sold it to you to RMA on your behalf.

        "CORSAIR provides a non-transferable warranty to the purchaser of CORSAIR hardware product purchased from an authorized CORSAIR reseller."

      Thanks for sharing. I won't be using Newegg. Can't stand that kind of service.

      I had a similar issue with Tennis Only in WA. Dishonest people to deal with when it comes to warranty.

    •  

      Not as bad as my $550 motherboard which took 3+ months to get a replacement through Scorptec.

      It seems that Newegg are total a-holes when it comes to warranty claims

    I also have been burnt by Newegg, ordered a 128gb sd card and got the 32gb one instead. -______-

      Hey, WTF…me as well. Expensive Samsung Endurance Pro card too. What did you do?

      Anyone else get screwed on this?? 128 printed on the card, 32 in reality. NEWEGG SELLING FAKE CARDS

    Damn if only the CAS was a bit better. Need it to go in a Ryzen build.

    •  

      Why is this? Just for overclocking purposes?

      Just bought a Ryzen system and curious :)

    •  

      So what speed are you looking for if you want a Ryzen build? Would it differ if you were going to put in the unreleased Ryzen 3?

      •  

        2nd gen Ryzen can't go faster than about 3200, but other than that you want as fast as possible. Rumour is it won't matter as much for 3rd Gen, but we don't know yet. I'll be building with 3rd gen so this deal is super tempting, but I might have to pass because there are too many unknowns.

          2nd gen Ryzen can't go faster than about 3200

          Not sure where you got that from, but my 2600 and 2700X both handled 3466MHz with tight timings without any issues.

          • +1 vote

            @integral: Ah I should have said can't reliably go faster, it depends on silicon lottery, I've seen lots of people unable to go faster even if their ram is rated for it.

            •  

              @Larwood:

              On the tested samples, the distribution of the maximum achievable memory frequency was following:

              3400MHz – 12.5% of the samples
              3466MHz – 25.0% of the samples
              3533MHz – 62.5% of the samples

              ~ The Stilt

              The max memory frequency is also affected by the motherboard, but I've tried a B450-I Strix and a B450 Tomahawk, and both were able to do 3466MHz without any issues.

          3000 CL16 isn't bad by any stretch, you'd be giving up a couple of percentage points in certain use-cases/games at most (vs say 3200 CL14 or whatever) and pocketing the better half of a hundred in savings, I'd say its worth it if you're in the market

    •  

      Is it really that bad? There's not much faster than C16 at 3000 mhz, and to get even slightly faster you're looking at at least 50% more expensive.

    damn what are people doing to warrant the 32 gb?

    I know its not that much but with ram prices these days isn't 16gb totally fine?

    •  

      We all do 4K video editing or run a dozen of docker containers every day.

      Okay, jokes aside, it is an overkill for most people. It's OZB… so anything that's being discounted, people would post them (just in case there are people needing them looking for good deals).

    •  

      16 is totally fine for 99% of people, for me the main reason to go 32 now would be if I think 32 might be useful in the future and I want it in the ideal number of sticks for a mainstream platform.

    •  

      Main reason I went for the 32gb is the price per GB over the 16GB kit. 16GB sticks are handy as for Motherboards with only 2 slots too, so you're not limiting yourself.

      Could split this kit up and use 16gb in each pc

      Running virtual machines on a RAM drive XD

    •  

      I've always built with more RAM than I need, so that it's not a bottleneck when I inevitably upgrade the video card and probably the drive during the life of the machine. Because by that time, 32Gb will be the new 16Gb.

      Running chrome is enough to warrant 32gb

    •  

      I run a web browser called chrome. Sometime I have up to 20 tabs open

      •  

        I have 32 tabs open at the moment, and Chrome use only 3.5GB of my system memory(16GB). I think with a system memory of 16GB, Chrome can open at least 100 tabs without any issue(I have no clue why, everyone think Chrome is a memory hog).

        •  

          People also conveniently forget that free memory is wasted memory.

          I mean, why wouldn't you want your programs using all available memory to run faster? That's the whole point of having RAM…

    Do they come with Samsung B Die chips?

    • +7 votes

      B-Die would be 14-14-14 at DDR4-3000, this is probably Hynix with 16-18-18.

      Cheapest B-Die kit locally in Oz would probably be the Team XCabibur DDR4-3600 @ PCCG for $229 that was $249 just a month ago so 32GB for this price would out of the question.

    No deal, you can get 3200cl14 ram for 289. See pick a part.

    Oops… 32gb vs 16gb. Ignore me.

  •  

    any notebook ram deals?

  •  

    Great deal got the 16gb kit for $269 less then a year ago. Crazy how much the price has fallen

  •  

    So cheap for 16GB sticks, had to get mine upgraded for when they were $400 for two stick :')

  •  

    Nice deal, but when is DDR5 coming out?

    •  

      This year, but it won't be used in systems until at least next year. And if it goes anything like ddr4 it'll be a couple of years before it's significantly faster than the previous generation. No reason to wait.

  •  

    Damn I bought the DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) 32G for $700…

  •  

    I'm a bit cautious about this purchase. Reading through the reviews and there are an alarming number of DOA sticks with people also reporting they can't get the advertised 3000Mhz speeds. On top of that it is an international purchase which isn't covered under Australian warranty and consumer law.

  •  

    Paid double this a year ago. Nice

  •  

    LOL was about to comment that RAM prices have dropped and that 16GB shouldn't cost this much anymore… then I read it again… 32GB of 3000mhz memory with RGB for 289 is crazy cheap

  •  

    For a Ryzen 1700 system, what would be better, this RAM or the Corsair Vengeance Pro: https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820236450&Description=ddr4%20rgb&cm_re=ddr4_rgb--20-236-450--Product

    I know 2666 vs 3000 but im yet to find a set of DDR4 RAM that can't get to ~2933 (which is fast enough for me)

  •  

    My RAM kit arrived today and I installed it into my computer. I ran a game for 5 minutes then the PC locked up completely and I had to reset it. It then struggled to POST even after resetting the BIOS and changing RAM back to my previous Corsair sticks.

    Testing now with the XMP profile of 3000Mhz. Will report back. Hopefully it doesn't hard lock again.

  •  

    Ok played a game for 30 mins on the XMP 3000 Mhz profile and all seems well. The RGB is beautiful.
