    Bam! Check-it-out. Last year a rip off, today a steal. I wish there was a similar deal on the Royal.

    Damit. I paid 160 for this kit a few months back :(

    I have some leftover 2133 that I need to flog now.

    Is 16-18-18-38 good timing latency?

    •  

      It's the standard timing for regular (non b-die etc) 3200 memory. There's a couple of 16-18-18-36s around but for better timing like 15-15-15-35 or 14-14-14-34 you're paying double the price.

        Thanks for your reply.. Would I notice any difference or FPS if I get the better timing ones? Mainly play AAA games at 1080p(i7-7700, gtx1070)

        •  

          Pretty sure the i7-7700 only runs memory at up to 2400 anyway, so I would assume it would run at that speed either way. Google giving some mixed results suggesting higher speeds (up to 2666) on Z170/Z270 boards. Whatever the case, getting C14 timing at 3200 vs C16 at 3200 would at best make a minimal difference and only if/when the game is CPU bound, rather than GPU bound.

          The main reason people invest more for 3200C14 memory is to overclock the memory to 3800+ since Samsung B-die memory is generally considered the best for overclocking and getting high frequencies with good timings.

            @divvydan: So I should save some money and buy 2400 ram? Or I could buy this ram and upgrade the CPU?

            •  

              @toobzy: I would buy this ram anyway over a 2400 kit for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it's about as cheap as 2400 ram anyway so there's no value in buying anything cheaper and secondly if/when you decide to upgrade the CPU, the faster ram will be a lot more helpful then than the 2400 is, especially if you decide to upgrade to a Ryzen system (e.g. 3600/3700X) in the future. Additionally, if there is a higher speed you can get to now (might be mobo dependent), then that's also an option.

                @divvydan: isnt this an intel ram? i wanted to get this but some googling showed its not good with my mb, not on QVL of my mb.

                  @Gerry H: If you go to this site https://www.gskill.com/qvl/165/184/1536110676/F4-3200C16D-16... you can get an idea of which boards it has a qvl for and indeed, which boards in general it can used with. For the 4 major motherboard brands (ASRock, Asus, Gigabyte, MSI) it is on the QVL list of most B450/X470/X570 boards so in general it's fine with AMD.

                  •  

                    @divvydan: That's brilliant, I didn't know RAM manufacturers had QVL lists, I had been looking at the Motherboard manufacturer QVL (and they were always sparse).
                    Look through this list, it shows that most budget B450 motherboards (based on PCpartpicker) are on the list, yay!

                @divvydan: One last question.. If I upgrade to ryzen then I would have upgrade my GPU to see any benefit yeah? This site suggests a 98% bottleneck with 3700x and a 37% bottleneck with 3600 cpu with my GTX 1070

                • +1 vote

                  @toobzy: Most likely yes. Now, it does depend on the game, the resolution, the settings etc but since you usually play 1080p AAA games, I'm assuming you like to have your graphics settings as high as you can whilst keeping the frame-rate decent. In that situation, your 1070 will in general be the limiting factor. If you dropped the settings lower, then there would probably be a bigger gap between the 7700 and 3600/3700X.

                  If you were doing other things that took more CPU power, like photo/video editing or rendering etc, then there would be some advantage to upgrading the CPU to one with more cores, likewise there can be some advantage if you notice stuttering in your games but the 7700 has 8 threads, which should be enough still for most modern AAA titles to not get stuttering.
