    That's a good price.

    I wish GPU's were as cheap as ram.

      Seems the overpriced GPUs are making most PC builders wait longer to build, which results in overstock of all other parts.

      Motherboard prices are back down to relatively sensible levels. RAM and SSDs and PSUs are downright cheap. Cases too. CPUs aren't bad considering how much inflation we have.

  • 3600Mhz CL-18 vs 3200Mhz CL-16 which is better?

    • +3

      3600 is 400 better

    • +5

      Almost identical. 3600mhz CL18 is like 0.1% better.

  • Question - if I currently have one 16GB RAM stick (Samsung M378A1K43CB1-CTD) that came stock with my pre-built PC, should I:

    a) Add these two and make it 48GB RAM;
    b) Add these two and remove my existing 16GB RAM (for 32GB total); or
    c) Just buy one 16GB RAM stick of the same specifications as my existing one from another OzBargain deal?

    My gaming is limited atm to Witcher 3 and most common multi-tasking is work virtual desktop + Firefox (usually just YouTube and OzBargain) + Runescape.

      I would avoid Option A. It’s not recommended to mix modules if you are running XMP, which is a performance setting in the BIOS. Also 48GB is too much RAM for your needs - 16 GB would be enough. Having more than one stick of memory would get a performance increase because it would run in dual channel.

      Option 2 is the best option as there is no chance of instability. But I’ve had no issues with adding another module of the same brand that wasn’t bought as a pair - most people don’t.

      • I have 4 x 8GB, if i replace one pair with these and match the 1,3 and 2,4 slot positions will XMP still perform ok? If not, without XMP enabled? I run too many browser tabs in the background :(

        Everybody should have at least 64GB so they can have 4 Chrome tabs open at the same time.

      • Thanks mate, that was really helpful! It's given me some things to think about when eventually upgrading, and at least I can chuck Option 1 in the bin. Cheers!

    • 16 GB is already overkill for what you have described.

      • +1

        I would argue that virtual desktop + multiple Firefox tabs would chew through 12GB+ ram easily. It isn't a stretch to say that if they do anything else, their computer will be ram-limited.

        I would argue that 16gb is the bare minimum for a gaming PC, and any combination higher (such as 32gb) would see benefits.

        • +2

          Nah, 32 GB is still a ways away from providing any benefits in gaming.

          There was one YouTube video that showed better 0.1% lows, but turns out his 32GB kit was dual rank and his 16GB wasn't.

  • damn it OOS

  • Question: how much difference is this to the CL16 version performance wise?

    • From what I see posted online: CL16 has absolute latency of 8.88ns, CL18 = 10ns for this 3600Mhz module. Very little real-world performance difference. Only when the throughput limit is reached would there be any difference.
