Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz C16 Desktop Gaming Memory Black $74.60 Delivered @ Amazon AU

290

Seems like a good price for 16GB. Note that the default voltage on these is only 1.2v. If you increase this to 1.35v you should be able to hit at least 3000Mhz, maybe 3200Mhz. All of the faster kits run at 1.35v by default.

It appears that Amazon is refusing to accept Au shipment addresses due to some sort of glitch. If you manage to get around this please post your solution below.

    Tom's Hardware have a review of this ram (https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/corsair-vengeance-ddr4-...) but it's 5 years old now.
    Anyone know of any newer articles / posts where people have got this to 3000/3200mhz reliably?

      I don't know of any articles, but I bought this RAM about 2 years ago and have been running it at 3000Mhz reliably with my Ryzen 1700 on an X370 board.

    Has anyone managed to order? Tried several addresses and none will work.

    Can hardly believe how much RAM has dropped in the last year or two. This is a great price :D

    Well I had the same problem. Couldn't ship to my address, but the other colours could (white and red).
    Called Amazon and they guy offered my $20 off the $121.87 White Ram, which I declined, he put me on hold then offered me $45 off the White, making it $76.87.
    So I actually saved a dollar!
    Give that a shot if you can be bothered getting on chat or calling.

      The guy didn't say why the cheapest color wouldn't ship?

        No he didn't seem to know, he just said he reported it to the team that can fix it.

          You got lucky or i unlucky! i couldn't talk the person i got into discounting the white to the same price. They said it's a different colour so price is different, they will load a ticket and i can check back in 3-5 days…

            @pin4e: Good luck, I didn't actually ask for the discount he just offered it.
            I did mention to the guy that were a bunch of people online that wanted to order but couldn't, so hopefully whatever the issue is with shipping the black versions will be sorted soon enough.

    I managed to get the same deal as CitizenCane by ringing Amazon after first being unsuccessful using chat. So thanks for the advice. I did mention to them that other Amazon customers were given the 'promotion' discount as there was a system glitch and I wanted the same. I was on hold for a little while but they eventually agreed.

    The 32gb (4x8gb/2666mhz) is $1,048.25. Must be a glitch.

    My lord that's half an hour of my life I will never get back!!! I was on the phone to amazon and they were adamant the RAM had a restriction on and couldn't be sent to my address (Perth, metro) I got them to try different addresses around the country with same result. Then they said might be a third party seller that doesn't ship to me even though it clearly says supplied and shipped from Amazon Services (EPIC FAIL) I even told the the Amazon call centre bird the OZbargains crew were having the same issues ordering this RAM. I then added the exact identical RAM but with a higher price $95 something to my cart and surprise, surprise it would send to my address! In the end Amazon said to proceed with purchase of the more expensive RAM and they would refund me the difference when the RAM shipped. The call centre must be run by human robots!

    anyone know if I can just add two of these 2666MHz ram to my current pc setup, which I have already got 2 * 8 GB ram with 3000MHz, will it work?

    Thanks

      Not a good idea to mix RAM as they have different timings (not just 3000/2666MHz). If you're willing to tinker in your BIOS to adjust timings then they should work fine but it would also depend on whether the 2666MHz can be overclocked (most likely it can). I think it's probably more hassle than it's worth.

      As Yuri stated, it is very possible to get this working just fine but may require some tinkering in the bios. You'll either have reduce the speed of your existing RAM to 2666 or overclock this RAM to 3000. I expect you're current RAM is running at 1.35v so when you add this RAM it might overclock at your existing settings.
