Great price on a ton of RAM if you want to max out on 4 slots of DDR4 RAM.
How many chrome tabs can I open with this?
12 blank tabs
There are heaps of use cases for professionals, not many for the home user.
I've used a PC with 128GB RAM for 3D modeling in geosciences and it was definitely not just for wank factor - and that was 10 years ago.
Same, in the geosciences 3D modelling space— I constantly max out my home PC with 128GB of ram.
Can't have enough cores or ram.
Same. I have 128gb of 3600mhz ram in my home PC. When I work from home, bioinformatics (single cell sequencing) stuff can eat this much quite easily.
My 24 core 5900x works well with it. Multithreading heaven in windows using wsl.
Just out of interest, what version of Windows do you use? I got Windows 10 for Workstations on my 9900X and was thinking of studying a few things that are memory intensive (and some that require Linux), and was interested in some feedback.
It's all about the Pentiums, baby!
"Yeah, payin' the bills with my mad programming skills
Defraggin' my hard drive for thrills
I got me a hundred gigabytes of RAM
I never feed trolls and I don't read spam"
Thanks Al :D
Weird Al's take on it :)
The RAM price is going down…
Better hold for Black Friday…
I am waiting!
I'd love to see a full system spec built around this RAM. Are there any motherboards that support the full 128gb? And does Windows 10/11 support this much?
And does Windows 10/11 support this much?
And does Windows 10/11 support this much?
The lowest ceiling for physical memory is 128gb on Windows 10 Home, so yes. (Barely.)
Windows yes… Long as it's 64bit.. (most newer systems are 64.. but there might still be some stranglers out there which are 32bit - the maximum is "4gig" for those ones
Motherboards yes… the major ones all will support up to 128… The unknown brands.. more than likely… I've had 10 year old mother boards that advertised maximum ram was 128 so this option has been around for a while
Why would you do this? Music production… Video editing .. etc
It’s a rather irrelevant way to look at it. If you’re building a system for tasks that require lots of RAM, no one is looking at 8GB sticks.
128GB SSD … wait what? 128GB RAM
thanks OP, got it for my i3 1050ti build
Thanks bought 3
Too slow for the PS5. No buy.
OMG this is some bull****.
WEEKS of 32GB deals, and then straight to 128GB deals?
WHERE THE HELL IS THE 64GB DEALS???
Find another person who wants 2x32GB sticks and go halves?
Crazy. I can’t believe the maths. I think I’m rocking 16GB total 😂
I'm at 16GB as well, and it's fine. Then again, I don't do pro-level photo or video editing!
I posted one earlier this year as there were no deals. Had to buy from Newegg. G.Skill 2 x 32 GB Trident Neo RGB.
damn tempted to cop it for work
Great for a RAM drive. I run a 32GB RAM drive for video processing (save the writing endurance of my SSD) and I'm already out of memory….
Cheers OP. Grabbed for the server!
Seems we all have servers! Almost tempted to get it myself for the same reason.
Name a motherboard with this on the QVL.
QVL is overrated.
enjoy memory_management bsods.
QVL is just the RAM manufacturers used to test their motherboards. Do you really really think they're going to test the thousands of different RAM on each of their motherboards?
Chances of having those kind of issues are very slim. More likely you're going to have your PC not go past POST when you're trying to overclock and doing it wrong.
When QVL lists a 4400 CL19 kit for X570/B550, you know that the list is wonky (unless they test at a fraction of the IF frequency, then it is not representative of what people do with their PCs).
Almost paid this much for my 3000MHz 64GB Kit (4x 16GB). Great deal if you've got the right gear.
If I had the 10900X in lieu of the 9900X, this would go great guns (leaving room to double the RAM with another kit if required) on my X299 SAGE.
ramdisk 100GB for video editing?
memory has really gone up in price!
i went full wank factor and bought myself 128gb (2 sets of 32gbx2) Patriot Viper 4 blackout 3600mhz, from amazon.
Managed to get it all from amazon for $717 back in november 2020
…now the exact same ram and quantity would cost over $1000 from amazon!
Of course, it is the COVID + FOMO tax.
Back in 2019 I went 64GB DDR4 3000MHz Kingston kit (4x16GB) and wish I'd have gotten this instead.. Paid around $660 for the 64GB kit at the time.
Almost tempted to get rid of the 64GB (8x8GB) in the other machine, get this one and migrate the 4x16 kit.. something tells me the old X99 won't support 16GB DIMMs though. lol.
that was my thought. Everybody tells me "ah you don't need 128"…but my previous gaming rig (which turned into my unraid rig) had 32gb of DDR3, now 32gb ram has become the standard
…but if i just splurge out now i won't need to splurge out later.
Also the long term plan with this rig is for it to eventually replace my current unraid machine. 128gb of ram will do perfect for unraid especially when running multiple VM's
Regardless…i don't need 128gb ram right now, but one day i might
Sweet, start craft 2 should fly with this much ram…
