Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO Black 32GB (2x16gb) DDR4 3200MHz 16-18-18-36 $241.56 Delivered @ Amazon AU

110

Unlike the three other deals earlier today on what sounds like the same Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB 3200Mhz RAM, this is the CMW32GX4M2C3200C16 model with tighter timing (16-18-18-36) and at least in my case, confirmed compatibility with my MSI X570 motherboard.

Looking online, this particular set is still running around the $290 mark so Amazon AU is doing a decent price this time. Note that it is "Ships from and sold by Amazon AU" - ie. not Amazon US via AU but actually fulfilled locally.

Interestingly this only came to my attention as I was researching and it's actually the same item as what I previously posted a few months back but fifty dollars less: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/475986

EDIT 30/11 Unfortunately the price has gone back up to $266.96 + delivery as it's no longer fulfilled by Amazon AU.

    yup.. this is the Corsair RGB Pro RAM which works with my ASUS Prime X570-P motherboard - if you have or are buying an AMD CPU and motherboard be very careful which RAM you buy - it is almost essential to check the manufacturer's web site and look at the qualified vendors list of which RAM has been tested to work successfully with the motherboard.. otherwise you're going to be doing a return of the RAM after the end of the sale period.

      Thanks. It was actually your comment here which inspired me to start looking for deals on the exact SKU which was rated as compatible. It's easier to cancel/return something when you haven't opened it than when you have and found it wasn't the right specification.

    • @gizmomelb

      Looking at getting the same motherboard and have been looking at this ram or the g.skill flare-x

      Could you use something like the Ryzen Dram calculator from Techpowerup to see what memory modules the ram uses?
      You tried any overclocking or tightening the timings at all. Interested to see if they have any headroom at all.

      Cheers

      • @gilmour I'll check this weekend mate - even though I assembled my new system last weekend it's still sitting on the kitchen table and not in general use as yet.

        I haven't even fiddled around much with the RAM settings in the BIOS, I left it at default and the RAM was only running at 2666MHz instead of it's rated 3200MHz, so finding out what I haven't set correctly in the BIOS is a must do so I can then retire my Intel i5-2500K system.

        • @gizmomelb

          No prob.

          Really more interested in finding out what the memory chips are than anything else. Don't trouble yourself mucking around with RAM settings on my account, that can be opening a big can of worms.

          I saw a few people have that RAM running at 2666MHz issue when I was googling for information for this memory. I think most of them had XMP {AMP??} profile enabled and had to disable it and manually enter the speeds and default timings to get it to work.

          Cheers

          • @gilmour: yeah my BIOS is set to AUTO for everything, was surprised the XMP config wasn't picked up initially though. As said, it's a definite thing on my to do list this weekend.. I want the kitchen table back for meals :)

          • @gilmour: seems my RAM have Micron Technology DRAM B-Die.. still trying to figure out DRAM Calculator but SAFE timing seem to be 14-14-something something.

            • @gizmomelb: @gizmomelb thanks for checking that, hopefully your kitchen table is now free to go back to its intended purpose.
              Sounds pretty good if the DRAM calc tells you can run it at 14-14-?? for the main timings. Stability at those timings is the test
              though.
              Probably easiest to manually set it to the 3200 16-18-18-36 settings and leave it at that if your not worried about pushing the timings
              You've probably checked already but you running the latest BIOS to see if that fixes the auto XMP prob?

              • @gilmour: no worries at all.. yeah my PC is going to be used for gaming, but also 4K video and photo editing, so stability is the key factor.

                I figured out the XMP profile thing in the BIOS - it's counter-intuitive imo. I had to select a profile for XMP to function, instead of leaving it on the default / auto setting.

        Mine is running at 3200Mhz with XMP on. I have an MSI X570 MEG ACE.

        I did look into overclocking following a Youtube tutorial when I first got it but from memory I got the not great chips for overclocking so didn't bother pursuing.

  • Stupid question, but what's the difference between this and this below:-

    https://www.mwave.com.au/product/corsair-vengeance-rgb-pro-3...

    Unless I am mistaken, same sku? Lower price? Around 189 at the time of this post.

      The timings of that kit are 16-20-20-38, as opposed to the OP's kit which is 16-18-18-36.

      Not going to make much real world difference - however even though they're slightly different models, it's possible to have board compatibility issues.

      I know I'd rather save the ~$50

      • +1

        I also ordered the cheaper set but am going to try and cancel the order given I’d rather have as closely matched RAM as possible (seeing that I have the same kit from amazon which I ordered a few months back).

    • +2

      Slightly different model with slower memory timings.
      Read the OP post for info. The shopping express ones are the E model.

      For most people the slower timings probably won't make a difference and it's just a matter of saving $50

    • Different SKU with different timing. You’ll find that most places doing the deals on the E for $179/189 also have the C model for about $100 more.

    • How much is shipping?

      • Amazon AU items > $39 have free shipping.

  • F

  • How different are these from the g.skill 32Gb 16-18-18-38 I'm running on my ASUS TUF x570-Pro?

  • My kit arrived today and can definitely confirm it's the "C" model. Yay.
