expired Ballistix Sport LT 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3000MHz CL15 $108.90 Delivered @ Newegg

400

Seems to be the cheapest so far.

Amazing value for Ryzen as it tends to overclock to 3600MHz CL16, even on Ryzen 1000.

    Awesome price! I can never make use of ANY newegg deals as shipping even for these start at $65.66, what a joke

          Tittybong, I hope. Best of luck getting family/friends to forward some packages from the city to you, $65 is indeed brutal.

        I think they don't ship free anywhere that requires them to pay extra for AusPost final mile delivery, as they ship by UPS. I had to order to a ParcelPoint that'll cost me $10 in fuel for a trip to, otherwise $66 shipping to me being outside of SE QLD and presumably UPS's own service area.

    I was stupid when I bought my Ryxen 1600x and only got 2133 RAM. Is this a good deal for me, or should I wait for some 3200. I don't overclock.

    •  

      i have 3000Mhz ram.. but i wish i got 3600Mhz to take full advantage of my 3700X… I dont like to Overclock either. .. can never win.. no point bothering with this ram for your 1600x Save your cash and wait for a sale on a 3600… that will show the largest jump in performance. 3000Mhz ram will do very little. It may even crash your PC and you may have stability issues.

        Benchmarks ive seen show almost no difference between 3200mhz CL14 and 3600mz CL16 memory for 3000 series ryzen … so couldnt imagine 3000mhz being that much worse

        Honestly, if you looked at some of the RAM benchmark results carefully, you can see some BS happening (so you start to realise it doesn't matter that much).

        • You have DDR4-2666 beating DDR4-3600 in H.264 encoding (due to better timings).
        • You have DDR4-2400 and DDR4-2666 both beat DDR4-3200 (despite that DDR4-3200 actually has better timings) in wPrime.
        • Gaming tests done on 2080Ti @ 1080p. That's not for normal people. Honestly, even if you get the best DDR4-3600, with an inferior graphics card, you won't be able to beat someone on 2080Ti with DDR4-2400.
        • At 1440p and 4K, you cannot seriously expect the same kind of result. That margin is going to shrink.
        • The RAM timings for the test I saw are a bit all over the place. The DDR4-3200 tested clearly is B-die (CL12). It gives you a false impression of DDR4-3200 performance. Even so, it can still lose out in some tests against DDR4-2400.
        • As for reports putting everything on CL18 to show DDR4-3600 is better in gaming is also pretty dumb, why would a normal person purposely slow down their RAM on lower frequency?

        You are not going to feel the difference unless you actually put a FPS counter on your screen and look at it constantly. If you looked at AMD's chart, the biggest jump is from DDR4-2666 to DDR4-3200 (the chart actually has both DDR4-3200 and DDR4-3600 showing 69). That chart is also a bit of BS as well, because the x axis is not scaled properly and those figures do not reflect actual performance figures. That chart is good marketing material for RAM sellers though.

    shipping was listed as AUD$24.33 for me

    Once i add that to the cost I'm looking at the same prices for Aussie stock on Crucial BLS2K8G4D30AESBK Ballistix 3000Mhz

    Not sure about the Free shipping thing - World EggSaver Standard (4-7 Business Days) that may make this deal ok if its real.

      You differentiate the difference between express and standard shipping in your own post yet you still seem confused… I don't know how to help you… Read your own comment for advice?

          You have a ten year old account with over 3,000 comments yet you appear to be perplexed by the concept of a deal with free shipping. With the utmost respect, you are a very intriguing user.

    2 * 16gb @3600 for 227 aud sounds a better deal for me and that’s not even on special.

  •  

    Which is better suited for Ryzen 3 - this or the 3600Mhz CL16 from Amazon Prime Day?

  •  

    ths grabbed 16GB, might be time to look at new system build or I can to see if I need 32GB in my current rig.

    •  

      You don't need 32GB unless you're doing video editing or other productivity tasks. 16GB is more than enough for gaming.

  •  

    For the love of god, DON'T BUY FROM NEWEGG, anything breaks and good luck getting warranty on it, they'll resist every step of the way.

    No stock, that was fast!

    If people are looking for an alternative from Amazon (particularly good if you have prime), search for these:

    Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200Mhz CL16 XMP 2.0 High Performance Desktop Memory Kit, Black

    $116 per kit, free delivery, will get here quicker than newegg and returns are MUCH better through amazon. 3200CL16 is for all intents and purposes the same as 3000CL15 (happy to be proven wrong but I'm pretty sure for 99.99% of people it's true).

      If you're looking for the compatibility with 1st or 2nd gen Ryzen that Micron E-die ICs known for, those Corsair sticks won't offer it.

      I'm running that kit of RAM on a 1st gen Ryzen 7 1700, and it's a kit of Hynix AFR memory. Although the XMP profile is rated for DDR4-3200 MT/s at 16-18-18-36 timings, I can't boot the kit with any kind of stability at anything over 2933 MT/s with auto timings (16-20-21-49 in this case) on my ROG CROSSHAIR VI HERO motherboard. Your mileage may vary of course, my CPU is a very early chip and supposedly memory compatibility is a bit better with later production models, but still.

      Micron E-die kits on the other hand are reported to run at well over 3000 MT/s on even 1st gen Ryzen which is notoriously picky against RAM ICs, with people successfully running daily at speeds up to 3600 MT/s C16.

    •  

      Will this run at 3600mhz on a new Ryzen setup too?

  •  

    big fat recommend! - i have overclocked my kit to 3600MHz CL16 and its very stable (gotta love Edie). I also recommend buying two of these 2x8GB kits rather than buying the 4x8GB kit if you want 32GB since 2 of these are cheaper and they're the exact same modules.

    Well, as expected, with my luck, I obviously received the worst sets of Micron Rev E memory DIMMs. DDR4-3000 is okay, DDR4-3200 16-18-18-38 will boot, but blue screened once and fail memory tests like crazy.

    Congrats to those getting these to run stable at DDR4-3600 at CL16 / 1.35V. For me, it is a disappointed purchase. Price is good for DDR4-3000, but was hoping it would at least provide DDR4-3200 or beat my DDR4-3200 kit. Oh well…

    •  

      I don't think it's the sticks that can't do it. Probably the mess of Ryzen 3000 BIOSes at the moment, especially MSI.

      Give it a month or so and try again.
