Crucial Ballistix 16GB(2x8GB)DDR4: 3200MHz C16 (Black/Red) $82.96; 3000MHz C15 Red $88.04 + Del ($0 w/ Prime) @ Amazon UK via AU


Most people would not be foreign to the Crucial Ballistix range of memory consisting of Micron Rev-E die.

Not the cheapest, but still very good pricing for a quality RAM kit (especially as AUD has gone down a bit compared to when it had cheapest pricing).

Part of Amazon UK's Black Friday week deals.

Note that I do have issues seeing the $82.96 listing sometimes when I access via the deal post, I had to clear my cookies and re-login in order to see it. So you may want to try that if you don't see the deal.

Also do NOTE:

In stock on December 6, 2020. FREE delivery: Arriving 16 - 21 Dec

Don't forget 4% cashback from ShopBack/Cashrewards, but it's uncertain how well it'll work, as you can only add the item to cart after going through the cashback website. I couldn't find the item so far by searching the part number or ASIN. So just see it as bonus if it works, go through cashback first, then copy and paste the url into your browser and then navigate there.

Slower 3000MHz but lower (so better) latency of CL15 Red Kit: https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B083TTCSHB?smid=A3JCEYBC5L8UJ8
Part number: BL2K8G30C15U4R
While some may prefer the higher clock kit as it'll make the Infinity Fabric clock higher for Ryzen, it'll still perform virtually the same (with negligible differences) as the 3200MHz CL16 kit. Of course, as the 3000MHz kit is more expensive, it's more like a back up option if the 3200MHz gets sold out.

  • Not bad. Im on the lookout for cl16, 3600 32gb ram (2x16)
    Sff build

  • Have one of this and able to do 3733mhz CL15 @ 1.42V, very good price for the performance

    • Wow that is a bump up. How did you go about ocing the ram?

      • A brief steps of what i have done is using the dram calculator putting in: E-die, Rank 1, A2 caluclated using fast preset. It has been memtest for overnight showing no errors.

  • Sorry guys, noob question, with ryzen 3000 vs ryzen 5000 series, buy 2 or 4 sticks is the better option.
    And how easier to rma those with amazon ?

      First question> it depends what you are doing. If you want absolute best performance, generally speaking, 4 sticks of Single Rank memory will enable Dual Rank operation and give best performance (I'm not sure if 2 sticks of Dual Rank memory will give equivalent result). However, the performance difference is very minute, that unless all your other hardware are already maxing out (such as GPU for gaming scenarios), you'll hardly notice any significant enough difference. If you are really interested and want to spend some time on this topic for your Saturday morning leisure, Hardware Unboxed had a video on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGux0pANft0

      Second question> It's been fairly easy for me personally. I never had to RMA anything electronic/gadgets back to Amazon. I've had P2 masks expiring the month they arrived. Amazon Support just sent replacement and no need to return the expiring ones. I did a refund return of a backpack I bought from Amazon DE via AU, all I needed to do was go through the return options in my account, print out the relevant return invoice documents and bag it and slap on the return label, drop off at ParcelPoint. Very easy for me.

    • I previously RMAd a GPU with Amazon UK that was dead on arrival. They sent me the new one straight away, and I had to return the dead one within 60 days (or so).

      Was pretty straight forward.

      • Thanks mate :) good to know :) when you return, do you need to pay shipping as such if you not prime members ?

        • They refunded the shipping. Was almost $50 too.

        • Not sure if you ordered before, but if you didn't and still interested, the deal is back on, although now Red colour instead of Black.

          EDIT: Oops, sorry looks like it's expired again. ^^" Nvm, just need to clear cookies.

          • @zrmx: Thanks @zrmx. After checking I thinking I am going to go with 2x16GB.
            Reason: mainly I am work on VM and that give me oppotunities to extend to 64GB if I really need to.
            Still waiting for that deal to come :)

            This is also very good deal :)

            • @vantruongsinh: thumbs up

              Yea more memory is definitely desired if you run quite some VMs, especially if you want to go to 64GB.

            • @vantruongsinh: $176.18 is the current cheapest for a 2x16GB kit, 3600MHz CL18: https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07Z4NTYDM

              $165.95 for 2x16GB, 3200MHz CL16: https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07WRR3Q33

              TeamGroup memory, so fairly decent. Although don't expect much overclocking headroom beyond XMP, and I'd guess you'll prefer stability anyway if you are running VMs. Seller is Amazon US via AU.

              • @zrmx: Really appreciate your help.
                What do you think between TeamGroup ram vs Corsair Vengence ($20 more) https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07ZPLM1R1/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_f...

                • @vantruongsinh: They are both reputable companies and sufficiently reliable, similar to G.Skill, Kingston etc. They don't make the actual memory chips, but buy memory chips from different companies, then separate the grades (binning), then package and make them into RAM modules/sticks themselves (or some may get other companies to package, then just slab their own branding). So there are quite different grades depending on the kit's speed ratings.

                  Different kits of memory modules, when run in the same speed and latency, produce the same performance. All the kits should meet its advertised XMP speeds, if they don't, then try RMA. Hence on that note, I wouldn't rate one over the other, it's more seeing which one's more suitable for your needs, such as the physical design e.g. if you need super low profile RAM for an ITX build, or certain colour scheme for a certain motif build you want. If physical size clearance and design/colour choice isn't an issue, then I'd just go for the cheapest one for the speeds I want.

                  Now with Crucial, which is the brand name, is really Micron the actual company who also makes its memory chips. Its Rev-E die chips have been established by users, reviewers and enthusiasts to be very capable in its overclocking ability to reach ~3800MHz to <4000MHz level of speed, even when the kit might be rated lower. Hence they are quite sought after, and can sort of demand a price premium.

    RGB for those who want a $20 premium lighting experience.

  • I can't seem to add it to the cart without them swapping it to the $105 au version.

  • It's back down to 82.96

  • Deal is not expired , if you looking for 32gb Amazon also has a 3600 LPX kit for $192.07. Long wait though

  • Damn, really need 3600 Crucial and RGB, hopefully falls back down to 130ish
