    CL16 @ 3200MHz.

    Anyone know how well these OC?

      You will get a very lose timing when the stock at 3200 is CL16 (which is not bad per se). I would go with 3200 CL14 if overclocking is needed.

    •  

      These seem to be reported as being Hynix CJR, so while timings will be looser than B-die they should go okay. I'd take it at this price, though it certainly doesn't beat the recent $126 Corsair deal that turned out to be B-die!

    •  

      If you get CJR, then it should be able to do 3600 16-19-19/16-20-20 1.35-1.40v or 3800 16-20-20/16-21-21 1.40-1.45v. 3800MHz is typically where dual rank and coincidentally Ryzen 3000's IMC tops out. If you're on Intel, you might be able to push 4000MHz.

    Amazon had Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x16GB 3200MHz for $126 a few weeks ago. I snagged two kits.

    Hi. please help. my mainboard said that
    "supports DDR4 1866/2133/2400/2667/2933.
    2 slots, each supports 8/16GB.
    Max capacity is 32GB"

    Wondering if I can use this card as it is 3200MHZ.
    Also I am having a 8GB card in one slot, can I put 16GB card in the other slot, means 24GB in total;or the cards have to be the same capacity?

    thank you professional IT support!
    (sorry for my bad English)

      If you already have an 8gb stick, you would replace it with these 2 sticks, its better to run matching sticks to get the correct speed out of the kit, and for dual channel to work. Yes 3200mhz will work just fine with 99% of boards, people run much higher stock so it's not exactly hard to run. At least not anymore, a la 1st gen Ryzen

        hi t0r3n0, thank you for the reply.
        So even the mainboard limit speed at 2933MZ,I still can install 3200MZ cards? and when the pc working, the speed is automatically recognised as 2933MZ?

          No the board will have many more speed options for 3200 and beyond, when it says it supports those speeds, it just means the cpu's are validated to run those speeds. Anything higher is technically an "overclock". Just install the memory and enable XMP in the bios and it will set the speed to what the ram is designed for and you're all good :)

          •  

            @t0r3n0: very clear. Thanks for your advise :)

          •  

            @t0r3n0: Are the following assumptions correct?

            1) It is safe to assume that I install any newer generation RAM modules in old laptops as long as the PIN's FIT CORRECTLY correctly in the motherboard?

            2) The newer generation RAM modules will work in older laptops but the effective functional speed of the newer RAM module will be capped by the system limitation

            3) In Summary as long as they are the same type class of RAM they can be used without any concerns about the speeds. Can install any DDR3 RAMS modules to a DDR3 compatible laptops regardless of the RAM speeds

            4) DDR 4 can not used for Motherboard that accepts DDR3 only because the pins are different

            •  

              @utsc: New generation ram are not backwards compatible.

              @utsc: DDR4 ram can only go in DDR4 slots, same with DDR3, DDR2 etc. As for 'functional speed', usually if you mix and match ram sticks they will default to the slowest speed of any of the sticks. But in reality, RAM will always default to JEDEC standard (2133 for DDR4) when first installed. I'm not sure what would happen if you enabled the XMP of a set of RAM while having other speed sticks. I imagine it wouldn't work, all the sticks must run at the same speed.

              Not always. Some laptops will only accept DDR3L (low voltage) RAM and not boot with the regular voltage one. You can use low voltage ddr3 on any laptop though.

    Is Patriot's warranty easy to deal with?

    After delivery this is cheaper on Amazon after cashback.

    •  

      You're taking about shopback aren't you?

      Part + Delivery from mWave is $190

      Price on Amazon is $195, but with 3.5% shopback, it's $188.80

      So yes, it's $1.20 cheaper via Amazon.

  •  

    I got this in the last deal, my motherboard can't cope with 3200mhz+ ram so I run it at cl14-3133mhz.

    compatible with 3900x?

    Hey guys, can anyone paint a picture for me of the upgrade going from 16gb to 32gb will have on my system?

    I've got 16gb of ram DDR4 ram currently, GTX 1080, i5-6600k 3.5 GHz, Z170 mobo. Feel like my system might be throttled by my processor atm.

      I'm assuming you game on this system. What speed is your RAM? Most likely that i5 is the bottleneck though, yes. 4c/4t in 2020 is pretty low-end

      If your cpu is the bottleneck, more ram won’t really help you. It depends on what you’re doing with your PC. 16gb sounds like a lot, or about right for that set up, so I think 32gb will be overkill unless you’re specifically doing ram intensive stuff.

    •  

      Upgrading from 16 to 32Gb will probably not improve performance unless you do lots of multitasking and file copy move ops (file ops seem to be cached in RAM). Faster speed DDR4 Ram improves Frame rates in some open world games like Fallout 4, GTA 4/5 (3200 about 5% faster than an Intel system with 2400 RAM), also archiving files (eg 7-zip)is a few % quicker.

    Back to $219 now.
