  • Good price. Probably Samsung C-die.

    •  

      Agree. Nice price.
      Not sure about C-die but your probably right but unless you're an OC enthusiast doesn't really matter.

    • I have 2x the red version of this kit, both kits (all 4 sticks) had Samsung chips

    • Unfortunately mine is SK Hynix

      • Did you use Thaiphoon Burner? Also that isn't unfortunate because if it's Hynix CJR it's actually better.

        • Sorry for my ignorance but what's Thiaphoon Burner?

          [Edit] Ok, part number says H5AN8G8NMFR-TFC, so I guess not

          • @AlgoTrading: So it's reporting as Hynix MFR, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's Hynix CJR. Try DRAM calculator for both MFR and CJR and see which is stable.

  • I bought 2 pairs of these from the last deal (so 64GB in total). I am planning to run with an X570 Tomahawk and Ryzen 9 3900x. Anyone else successfully running this config? Have not bought the CPU or a GPU yet.

    • With Ryzen 4000 and Nvid 3000 coming, props hold off for the next month, and don't buy any existing CPU or GPU yet.

      • They will be a lot more expensive though, right?

        • They'd be real stupid to make it so in this economy.

          Regardless, what it will do, is knock off some of the RRP of the parts you are looking at, so it's better to wait and see, maybe the new parts end up being hella good bangers for the buck.

        • Probably. Demand is still higher than supply. Just look at AMDs pricing of their recent XT release.

      • Next month?

        I didn't realise they were coming so soon. My build has been put on hold so many times now due to stock (as in 'no stock') and ridiculous prices, another month means nothing. I will wait it out.

      • If I wanted to build a new PC in the next few months, would you recommend buying this deal (I really want 32gb RAM) and then getting the CPU and GPU in the next month or so?

        • OH sure, RAM, in general, is really cheap compared to a year or so ago, and DDR4 is not going anywhere anytime soon.

          It's just the CPU and GPU were worried about, with releases of next-gen likely for September or very soon after for both, those are the parts you want to hold off on.

    • Hey man, in the same headspace as you. I bought 64gb of this plus an x570 motherboard as well for a little more from one of the previous deals.

      I was going to buy a 3900x and some Nvidia GPU. But with 4900x rumoured to be released soon, I scaled back and bought a 3600 and am using an old graphics card until new CPUs and GPUs came old. Then planning to see the 3600.

      Just finished getting parts delivered so, excited to build it tonight.

      • Far out I'm tempted to do the same thing as you.. my case is on back-order for another month though.
        Not sure if new AMD will come out in that time anyway :(

    • Not the same spec but I have 4x16gb (SK Hynix die) with 3700X and MSI B450M Mortar Titanium and no issues

    • Literally running this exact config. 3900x / X570 MSI Tomahawk / 64GB of this RAM.

      Works great. Had no issues.

  • may have to put another 28 degrees price protection claim in $10 why not (if the fkn form ever worked)

  • I currently have 16GB 3200 DRR4 CL16 RAM. I use my pc for office, heavy gaming (Ryzen 7 2700x / 1080ti) and do some video ripping/editing from time to time. Would I really benefit from going 16 to 32?

    • 16GB should be enough

      • +3 votes

        Not sure if that statement holds true anymore, considering m0usju1c3 plans on doing video editing.

        My 4 year old build of i7 6700k with 32gb of RAM quite often uses 55% or more of RAM and that's with Unity, Android Studio and FireFox opened.

        Video editing might be even more memory hungry.

        • Yeah I decided to pull the trigger on this myself earlier to upgrade from 16gb. Was nearing 90% usage without gaming, just several Chrome tabs, programs and a VM running. 16gb may still be enough but at least I won't have to worry about running out of RAM or needing to close anything to free some up for gaming or whatever. Will sell my 16gb kit after this arrives.

        • Same setup, when video editing ram is hover around 80-90 usages while having roughly 20-30 firefox tabs.

          I normally hover around 50% these days. I would easily choose 32GB for new builds if budget allows, it just mean you don't have close tabs/work stuff when you want to video edit/gaming.

    • Do you do much photo editing? I have 64gb and regularly go above 50% usage with photoshop and lightroom open and lots of layers etc.

  • I have plan to build a computer for next 3-6 months but not rushing as I already have one. Do you think should I jump into this or wait for next 3-6 months for any better deal ?

  • I haven’t built a PC in like 10+ years. I cant recall memory timings and ratings being important? Does anyone know a good guide or 101 on Memory today and why the timings are important? How to match to a mother board etc?

    I look to build a PC soon!

  • Price back up to $179

  • Received the ram this afternoon, and popped it into my system.

    I'm probably doing this wrong, but I just ran Thaiphoon Burner on both modules and they are reading: Samsung B-Die?

    DRAM COMPONENTS

    Manufacturer
    Samsung

    Part Number
    K4A8G085WB-BCPB

    Die Density / Count
    8 Gb B-die (Boltzmann / 20 nm) / 1 die

    • Heya,
      Same info for me from Thaiphoon Burner. K4A8G085WB-BCPB is a valid Samsung B-Die part
      I have a Ryzen 5 2600 and the IMC isn't as good as say a Zen2 Ryzen 5 3600 and I couldn't boot at stock XMP settings.
      But I've now configured my memory speeds to:

      Frequency: 3000Mhz
      Voltage: 1.35V (stock)
      CAS: 14
      tRCDRD: 17
      tRCDWR: 17
      tRP: 16
      tRAS: 36
      tRC: 54
      Command Rate: 1T

      [email protected] should be faster than [email protected] so it's not a bad result I figure.

    • It's important to note that there is more than one class of B-die. The low binned stuff will be thrown around into kits if it's cheap at the time. The higher binned B-die is what is typically meant (these days, at least) when using the term "B-die", and kits using the higher binned B-die chips tend to not change the memory supplier based on price - or they only change between a limited pool of chips. Low-bin B-die appears to retain few or none of the benefits of high bin B-die with regards to memory overclocking potential etc.

      A month ago I used a G.Skill 16GB 3600/C18 kit with the same DRAM part number as what you've posted (i.e. it was K4A8G085WB-BCPB Samsung B-die) and it couldn't even post at its rated XMP settings with a Ryzen 3600 on a B450 board with latest BIOS (even if I manually upped some voltages). Other users that bought the same kit as me have reported multiple other DRAM manufacturers, so it looks like G.Skill just threw in whatever was cheap and available at the time of manufacturing. The same seems likely for this 3200/C16 kit.

    • Same here
      Samsung B-die. Hope this will save me from a headache on R3700X on B550. Fingers crossed.

  • Oh cool, the deal's back on. The 3600 MHz CL18 version of this kit is also available at $199, which I could add to the post I suppose.

  • What do you guys recommend in the RGB line ? I am thinking 3600 CL18 worth the price for AMD 3700x.

    Price is now $159 for the 3200 MHz CL 16 kit. Even more of a deal!
