    Prices of RAM is dropping

    So wait for a better deal?

    • +12

      That applies on everything though. You'd be waiting an eternity for everything to drop in price.

        • +29

          ok

          • @Clear: Serious question with this - I am doing a new build and eventually want 64Gb ram for rendering tasks but can make do with 32Gb. Do you think I can buy one kit and wait? Or will this model of ram disappear and I have mismatched ram…

            • +8

              @cheaptech20: Models come and go all the time so mismatched RAM wouldn't be recommended unless you got them to the same timings. I guess it depends how long you're willing to wait. 64GB deals ought to be on sale in future.

            • +2

              @cheaptech20: Knowing Corsair, you will end up with mismatched ram. So if you want to get this kit, get 2.

            • @cheaptech20: It's not ideal mixing but it does work very well. I personally have couple systems with mixed ram. Jay's two cents YouTube channel did a video on this recently where he mixed ram brands, speeds and timings. Everything performed much better than he expected. One test involved 4 different sticks. If you have mis matched ram it will just run at the speed of the slowest installed memory stick.

            • @cheaptech20: either way if you buy 2x of this kit your likely to get 2 different ics lmao. corsair moment

            • +1

              @cheaptech20: @cheaptech20 keep checking prices from newegg as well. I bought my G.Skill Neo RGB 64 GB(2*32) kit from there for $400 in Q1 this year

          • @Clear: You changed description lmao

            • +4

              @NoGiveJustTake: Yes I realised it was too hard for you to understand so I dumbed it down incase there were others.

              • -6

                @Clear: I believe prices of GPU are increasing. Might want to do some research.

                • +1

                  @NoGiveJustTake: Seems I didn't dumb it down far enough. I said many components, not all components.

  • How is this for Ryzen 5900x?
    Is 3200 CL16 better than 3600 CL18?
    Timings on this seem to be slow… but not sure what that means.

    • +8

      Fine for 5900x.

      3200 CL16 and 3600 CL18 are basically equivalents of each other. You may get small gains with the 3600MHz. You could also overclock either for bigger gains as well.

    • Vengeance is never the best RAM. It is only cheap.

    • +8

      Take into account that those will all charge for shipping ($13-$18ish). I negotiated the price and shipping with the rep on this deal.

    • Why is GSkill better? Aesthetics or performance?

    • The white one you linked is 3200

      I wish there was no surcharge for white lol.

  • It goes without saying that these are not b-die. If you are going to be playing a game which benefits from a fast ram (Warzone is a very good example) and if you're willing to overclock, then I would recommend spending more and getting a b-die

    Like this - https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/g-skill-32gb-288-pin-ddr...

    • That's at a significantly higher cost though ($345.70 inc. shipping), which may be better invested elsewhere.

      • That's why I mentioned the specific games part. A game like Warzone benefits a lot from fast RAM.

        And if you don't mind 4 sticks, you can have it for cheap for just $270 from amazon

      overclocking ram is quite complicated, youre gonna have to invest a lot of time into reading and learning about it to make it work reliably

      • -2

        Overclocking RAM is not really a thing anymore IME, the reason RAM is so granulated by performance now compared to yesteryear is DRAM DDR4 brands are doing all the overclocking testing before selling it now. If it can be overclocked they'll sell it for more money rather than allow users to achieve overclocking.

        If you want to overclock for epeen OK but achieving stability is difficult.

        • +1

          absoloutely not, xmp/docp literally has 8 timings in it out of like 25 that are 'pre-overclocked' and these are often using very low voltages (assuming b die), so by just pumpin more voltage you can easily get better timings and even without you can tune your secondaries and tertiaries which xmp purposely doesnt have pre-tightened and lets your motherboard auto-train them for the sake of compatibility for cpu's with shit imcs and shit motherboards.

          they will never sell ram with an xmp profile with fully tightened timings because theres 0 guarantee that it will run on a certain board with a certain cpu so whats the point of a qvl at that point.
          that would only increase the amount of people that get refunds / return their ram because xmp wont boot.

          fwiw- xmp can only change, tcl trcd, trp, tras, trc, trfc, trrds/l, tfaw

        • +1

          Nope, not true at all. Depending on the IC, you can overclock a lot or none at all. Some kits are overclocked though (VERY expensive) but those are for people who want the fastest RAM without OCing.

          Achieving stability is easy if you follow the guide properly

          https://github.com/integralfx/MemTestHelper/blob/oc-guide/DD...

      • It is tougher than CPU or GPU overclocking, but not as daunting as you might think

        https://github.com/integralfx/MemTestHelper/blob/oc-guide/DD...

    • Sorry can you please eloborate, I play a lot of Warzone competitively and currently have 16GB of CL22 3200MHz RAM.
      Should I purchase this deal or the one you linked, keeping in mind that I most likely WONT be overclocking? Would b-die ram help me when not overclocked? Also what would the realistic performance gain be %wise?

      Current PC Specs:

      Ryzen 3600, 5700XT

      Thanks!

      • +2

        If you are playing Warzone competitively, then you're probably playing at 1080p (especially considering the GPU you have) while going for as many FPS as possible. Your current RAM is very slow, you'll see huge benefits with the one I have linked, hell even with the one in the OP.

        When you pay for a b-die RAM, in a way, you are paying for both fast RAM by default and great OC potential. As you are not going to OC, it is better for you to get a RAM which is fast by default but not b-die, so you're getting a good RAM while paying less. I hope that makes sense

        But as you have a 3600, upgrading to a 5600x will be much better investment. In warzone, CPU > RAM > GPU

        • Thanks for the reply, yes I am playing at 1080p and am getting around 80fps. Though I just purchased a 34" 1440p monitor so will be using that once it arrives.

          So are you suggesting that I purchase this 3600mhz CL18 RAM then? Also, if I just enable XMP in BIOS will that help at all? And how much of an FPS boost do you think I will get by upgrading to these sticks?

          in regards to upgrading CPU, that is probably something I will look at down the track. Is upgrading CPU as easy as just swapping them in and out?

          Cheers

          • @essent1al: Even after getting the new monitor, I would suggest sticking to 1080p. It is better to avoid GPU bottleneck as prices are high

            I still wouldn't suggest this RAM. There is another cheaper 32gb b-die deal but with 4 sticks - https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B07KXLFDL6
            In a minute you can have 3800mhz CL18 with this one which would be 100% stable. I wouldn't even call it an OC, just a quick change to get awesome performance. You cannot do that with the OP deal

            You definitely have to enable XMP. Without it the frequency is like 2200mhz or something, which is very low.
            It's hard to give an exact number but around 90-95 fps I guess? If you get b-die then even more, granted you are not GPU bottlenecked at that point.

            I would highly suggest upgrading the CPU first. You'll reach 130fps average just by upgrading the CPU, which will cost you $370 on deal. You can sell your 3600 for $200-250. So for <$200, you are getting a 65% increase in performance.
            Here is some proof - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qkCKNa-G-M (6600 xt is a little faster than 5700 xt so subtract a few fps)

            Fast RAM helps a lot in Warzone but only when you aren't heavily bottlenecked by the CPU, which you are.

            Just have to do a few more things for a CPU upgrade - update all drivers from the manufacturer's website and update to BIOS which support AMD 5xxx cpus. After that it's just about swapping the CPUs. I literally upgraded 2 weeks ago from 2600 to 5900x. (The process wasn't completely smooth though. I got too excited and forgot to update drivers which caused a compatibility issue where I couldn't boot in the Windows. I fixed that very easily by putting back the old cpu and updating the drivers)

            Let me know if you need any help at all (even with OCing). Happy to help a fellow Warzone player :)

            • @Sopzo: Thanks man! The link you sent me is 2x8gb 4400mhz though?

              • @essent1al: Yeah you'll have to buy 2 of those. Total should be around $280 after coupon

                • @Sopzo: Hmm would it be alright to just buy one set of 2x8gb and add another set later if needed? Would 16gb be enough?

                  • @essent1al: Yeah that's fine. I am actually doing that now. Bought the first kit 2 weeks ago and will buy the 2nd one soon

                    • @Sopzo: No worries but I will have to run then at 3200mhz coz of my current cpu :(

                • @Sopzo: Also just noticed my CPU only runs 3200Mhz RAM max, so i'd need to downclock these to 3200mhz im guessing. is that bad?

                  • @essent1al: It will automatically downclock to either 3200mhz or to a very low frequency. It's not bad at all as your cpu cannot utilize more frequency anyway. What you need to do is set the timing to 16. That would lower the latency a lot. If you overclock then you can easily reach CL12. That would be awesome

    The thing that annoyed me about corsair…..not that it matters that much.

    I purchased 2x8gb sticks of this exact ram Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 3200mhz and it was Samsung Memory
    I purchased a further 2x8gb Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 32GB 2300mhz and it turned out to be Hynix Memory

    • Were they the exact same model number? They do have slight variations.

      • +1

        Exact same model number, exact same ram….different batch numbers because purchased a few months apart.

        • Damn that sucks. Cost, supply and demand can do that. A lot of SSDs brands are doing this now.

  • Is the white one on sale too?

  • Single or Dual rank?

    • Dual rnak

      • Not necessarily, Corsair are known to swap between die vendors

  • -3

    Corsair has been stuffing a lot of people around lately.

  • would this fit in a refurb dell optiplex 9020?

    • No it wont, that takes DDR3 ram (last gen).
      Not gonna find anyone posting deals for it on OZB, but you can still find it for sale at big PC shops, amazon, aliexpress etc

  • Great price but I have a hard time supporting shopping express.

    • Why?

      • https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/583727

        They were also by far the worst when 30 series gpus were released. Out right scalper prices for the cards that they had available. Most retailers had a markup, these guys were just straight up greedy.

      • I was gonna buy a MSI mech 6700xt at 1079 for a friend, had dinner for an hour, then they jack up the price to 1199. Their pricing varies so much. And their eBay store, Futu online, is notorious for jacking up price before eBay sales.

        But if u pay attention, their price can be cheap.

        • Now it is $1149 :facepalm

  • To be fair the miniscule differences between RAM speeds are not going to be noticeable to the user and I think there's far too much banging on about this. If you're at the stage where the speed differences really do matter you're not going to be wasting your time playing Battlefield or COD.

    • Star Citizen. Makes a big difference.
