As always, enjoy!
darn it just ordered last night for 226
Cancel and reorder it.
The heat spreaders on the Snipers are probably worth the extra couple of bucks anyway, especially if you plan to run them at the overclocked specs
I do not plan on overclocking but thanks anyways
You need to overclock it to get to the advertised 3000nhz speed. Otherwise it’ll just run at 2133
@keishton: How can it be a RAM overclock at a RAM chip factory designed speed. 3000MHz is the speed which this RAM is designed and manufactured to run at. You're not overclocking from 2100Mhz but you're only changing an SPD setting in the BIOS to tell the motherboard to run at 3000MHz RAM speed. Now if it was over 3000MHz then that would be a RAM overclock.
It's only your motherboard default SPD setting is 2100MHz for as a safe setting. If your motherboard is designed to run with 3000Mhz RAM at that speed and the RAM is designed to run at 3000Mhz then there is no overclock.
@hollykryten: that depends on your definition of overclock, these ram are all the same die designed to run at 2133mhz. the manufacturers just put profiles on the higher speed ram that passes their tests, so we dont have to do it manually.
Yeah, I'd not consider RAM nowadays without heat spreaders. Looks like these have only stickers on the chips. Given their proximity to high TDP items (GPU / CPU), if you're serious about a build, aim for something a little more robust.
Price for ram will slowly but surely drop for the next 6 months.
What application actually uses 32gb?
Chrome needs 128gb
4K video encoding and editing.
You will need 64g.
Awesome deal thanks OP just put in an order
Can these use for Ryzen build?
Yes, probably. The price is fantastic, but performance is mediocre if you're a gamer.
First you'd need to check the qvl of the motherboard to make sure they'll work at the rated speed. Assuming they will work, they're a budget option, on the slow side for ryzen, especially for new ryzen where many x570 boards support up to 4666mhz. They also have very limited overclocking potential being dual rank sticks. If they work, you probably won't get any more out of them than 3000MHz at cas 16.
If you've the cash, 3600MHz at cas 15 is good performance wise. Alternatively, 3200MHz at cas 14 is good. Faster sticks with reasonable cas latency cost a kidney or two. Sticks at 4000MHz with cas 19 for example are slower too, so mind those.
Looking to build a new office machine to do officy things. Leaning towards an i5 9400F and 32GB. Is this RAM overkill?
I'd say so. For general word processing, email and browsing 8gb would be fine for most people's needs.
32GB is way overkill for most people imo. Unless you're doing video editing, hardware-intensive games, browser sessions with dozens of tabs, etc, 8GB should be more than enough.
It's not the quantity of Gigs I'm asking about, rather the type. I run the machine 24/7 with torrents, Outlook with rules, and a few other apps.
So yeah, I don't need to power the Mars Luna Rover, just my old Q9650 is getting a bit long in the tooth. Always wanted a QX9775, or the best that my board could support, but could never justify the spend.
Can anyone please share a spec sheet with decent configurations that I can go for, to build a PC mostly for photo and 4k video editing?
I just did a build that came out at a decent price for a friend who edits videos and he's been very happy with it.
-32gb DDR4 (This price is fantastic, I would jump on it straight away, I ordered these sticks for my own build)
-i7-8700 (Note there are 2 processors, the 8700 & the 8700k. Save your money and get the non-k version unless you're confident with overclocking. Non-k versions come with their own CPU fan which k models do not which can help you save a bit of extra cash and easy to upgrade later)
-Motherboard - Gigabyte B360M D3H (Or equivalent, this is just the board I selected for him)
-PSU anything Gold standard from 600w upwards (Don't cheap out here but there are usually good brands on great sales)
Depending on what video software you use it may not actually use the video card much so it's up to you if you want to spend money in that area or not. A good mid range card would be a 1060 6GB or if you want to smash games obviously there are more expensive cards out there, but it generally won't make a difference for your video editing.
Thanks a lot for your comment. May I know how much it cost in the end? Yes, I watched a few youtube videos and got to know that Adobe Pro may not use all the cores while working on videos. I only need these specs mainly for video and photo editing but also want to have an upgradeable config where I can swap things easily. I have a Xbox one S for my gaming needs and only finish a game or two in a year. As for portability, my iPad is enough for media and web browsing.
We got some pretty amazing deals at the time (true ozbargainers lol) but for motherboard, CPU, Power supply & SSD paid $830 all up. Adding on this RAM deal would put you at $1,038
He had a case already so you will have to factor that in as well if you don't already have one available.
Pretty good deal for a great little power computer. I don't edit videos myself but he said it has made his life a lot easier and sped up his workflow a lot.
@Troy H: Wow!! That's an amazing price (at least compared to the standard configurations you get on the market these days). Is there anything in particular I need to be aware of while purchasing the parts, I mean compatibility across brands and parts.
@interstellar: Yeah you have to hunt around for the best deals on parts but that price is definitely doable and I totally agree! When I put the specs of his in (We had a good graphics card as well) the equivalent builds were mostly 2k and upwards. This was a few months ago so prices may have come down on pre-builds.
if youre ever in any doubt find the parts you need and put them into the system builder on this page:
It will let you know if there is anything incompatible. The only things you really need to make sure of is that if you do choose the i7-8700 that your motherboard is LGA 1151. Other than that once you've selected a case make sure that the motherboard is the right size (ATX is full sized, mAtx is medium and mini-ITX is the smallest. Your case will tell you which motherboard can fit)
@Troy H: Thanks for taking the time to respond.
@interstellar: No worries and good luck!
Does anyone know whether these will work with a threadripper system? 2970WX in particular.
It's not the processor so much that's important, it's the motherboard's compatibility.
Most Motherboard manufacturers will have a 'supported memory list' available on their website, sometimes called a QVL (Qualified Vendor List)
for example, for a GigaByte Model B450M Gaming motherboard you can download the supported memory list:
To know exactly what motherboard you have installed you can click start - run box - type msinfo32
On the summary screen:
The System Manufacturer is the motherboard maker
The system Model is the motherboard model
Or you can use a free program called Hwinfo64 which will also tell you.
*Note that not all memory can be tested by the motherboard maker prior to release. Sometimes you may have to email them to verify or ask the pc store if they know.
Very good price for non RGB RAM.
Rippers, just got some 16gb LPX 3000 c15 for $120, this 32gb kit is a really good deal
