    can anyone recommend to upgrade?

    my specs are i7-7700, motherboard Asus Prime B250M-A and current memory 16GB DDR4 2133mhz, RTX 2080 8GB.

    just for gaming, adobe premier, after effects.

    would i see much of a difference in performance for those tasks between 2133 and this one 3200?

    thanks all.


      No difference for gaming


      Not sure about productive tasks but going by quite a few YouTube videos I've watched in the past, it should make a noticeable difference in gaming.

      For example, this dude's got a 1080Ti+7700K:-

      Far Cry 5

        The chipset can only tunes the RAM up to 2400MHz, the performace diiference is mininal, as compared to 2133MHz RAM, if any.


          Keke, time to upgrade ;)


          I mean, as long as you have a decent motherboard that supports XMP, I don't see why you couldn't OC it? Even Linus has a video about it with the 7700K.

          No difference in Deus Ex Mankind Divided, For Honor(seems to be negatively affected by it in a couple cases) and a noticeable improvement in Rise of the Tomb Raider.

          Again, I'm not recommending him to get the RAM. I'm just answering the question He'll probably be better off holding on to the money saving up for a better CPU.


          Ooohhh, so I'd better get a new motherboard and CPU as I wouldn't be able to use this ram beyond 2400mhz, my current hardware would limit the new ram and underclock it?

            @drazenm: Yes the B250 chipset only runs Ram at 2133 and 2400MHz.


            • Due to Intel® chipset limitation, DDR4 2400MHz memory frequency is only supported by 7th Generation Intel® processors. Higher memory modules will run at the maximum transfer rate of DDR4 2400MHz.
              ** Due to Intel® chipset limitation, DDR4 2133MHz and higher memory modules on 6th Generation Intel® processors will run at the maximum transfer rate of DDR4 2133MHz.

              @xuqi: Can you or someone please recommend me a good replacement motherboard? Nothing crazy as I don't overclock, as long as I can use DDR4 4 3200, 3600mhz and maybe when I decide to upgrade the processor to be able and use it, hopefully the sockets are same still?

              Thank you


                @drazenm: You'd be looking for a Z270 chipset motherboard to match your CPU (Z170 with BIOS update will also work but is a generation older). Unfortunately shops don't sell them new anymore so you'd be looking at old unused/unused stock.


                  @xuqi: hmmm, anything new that i can buy around , would it also support newer processors ? thanks for your help Xuqi.


                    @drazenm: The only CPU faster for your platform is the unlocked 7700k, which can be overclocked.

                    If you need for processing power, you’d need to sell your motherboard, CPU, and RAM and change platforms.

                    The additional Ram speed isn’t going to make a huge difference with your setup so I wouldn’t worry about it, so wouldn’t be looking to upgrade unless you really need the additional speed.

                    If you use your system for content creation, Adobe Premiere, you’re better off ensure you don’t run out of physical memory, as that will significantly hit performance in such apps.

                    If ok for now, I’d stick with and use what you have till your next upgrade.


      Research indicates circa 20% improvement, in some games going up beyond 20%. YMMV.


      Watch this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rj5sJARtEV0
      It should help you decide.

      TL;DR - there should be improvement across most if not all games.


    Do these play well with AM4?


    Bought this at Mwave for $240 as I couldn't wait. Another place to look for if you don't have patience lol


    Bugger I paid $247 last Tuesday for this exact listing. Does Amazon have price matching or guarantee?

    Nearly half the price of what it was last year, lol.
