    Not bad for 32GB! Just need to make sure buyers know this is the E-series and not the C-series version of the kit.

      What’s the difference

      • +29 votes

        Timings.

        "C-series" model CMW32GX4M2C3200C16 has timing 16-18-18-36 vs "E-series" (16-20-20-38)

        Price-wise, the E-series was on sale around $180 during Black Friday so this is even cheaper, and the C-series is usually around $250ish but it dropped to $211 around the same time. C-series may offer better AMD compatibility.

        Check this deal on the C-series from late last year.

      Great comment up the top. I almost fell off my chair when I seen the price, given what I paid for 2x8GB from a previous OzB deal

    Op - it might be worthwhile to put the timings in the description given the confusion (on every other similar Vengeance RGB Pro deal) around the two slightly different CL16 SKUs (i.e. the aforementioned C vs E series).

    FYI the heat spreaders are rather tall, but can be removed easily enough if you need room for a larger cooler (I bought the 3466mhz version before upgrading to a big-ass noctua that didn't quite fit, yay me!)

    Super good price! I paid $200 for 16GB of Corsair DDR3 maybe 5-6 years ago. Recently upgraded my PSU & case, hmm, do I just update the rest? :P

      When you purchased last tike there was a price cartel keeping prices of RAM high.
      All the big players were found guilty. Samsung etc.

    i am using a dual channel MB, which already got 2x8gb 3000Mhz on, placed in the 1st and 3rd slot, its not a corsair ram. can i buy this one and will it work?

    thanks

      Its a gamble if it will.

      you do not mix different makes and models of ram. it can cause any number of issues.
      even something as simple as lowdensity and high density ram is easily incompatible.

      so for your stab in the dark question, I would say no, they are not compatible, but the upgrade would be nice given the price if you replace your current sticks with this one.

      however as other commenters said these ones have less tighter timings, Speed isn't always everything, Gamers Nexus Nerdy writeup: https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/3333-memory-timings-defin...

      TLDR; Don't mix and match. buy a bulk all at once and populate all ranks.

      I bought 2 sets of these from umart at this price 2 months ago. Lucky for me both sets worked at 3200. However I wasn't so lucky with buying 3200 ripjaws 1 year apart. I had to run them at 2400 for them to work together nicely. The ripjaws were tighter timings as well.
      Hope this helps

    Surely 4x8gb will be a faster option.

    Any luck lowering the timings for those who have it?

    repeating my post from the last time this model RAM was on sale:

    you need to verify if this RAM is AMD certified with your motherboard manudfacturer's list of compatible RAM - for example the 32GB kit (2x16GB) has two different model numbers - CMW32GX4M2Z3200C16 and CMW32GX4M2C3200C16.

    The CMW32GX4M2Z3200C16 is certified while the CMW32GX4M2C3200C16 is not (and is slightly cheaper). Some people with the CMW32GX4M2C3200C16 have reported in various forums that their RAM has occasional issues with their AMD system.

      This won't matter so much with the 3-series Ryzen as the memory controllers aren't so weak and buggy as the 1st gens.

    Expired now that I thought about it :(

    What 32gb ram useful for?
