Yep, iirc I sold my 32Gig for double the price I purchased at. But of course I needed to replace that ram so it really only covered my costs of the upgrade.
I sold my 32GB 2666 LPX for the price I paid for it in Sept. It was exactly enough to buy 16GB of 3200 Flare-X, 6 months after I bought the LPX.
glad I bought my 128GB back in Q4 '16.
was like $600 back then.
Any hints of stabilization? Its the 1 factor holding me back on a build.. I dont want to spend $350 on 3600mhz
Also for gaming (not benching) would it be better to go loose timing 3600mhz or tight(er) timing 3200mhz?
Probably as stable as it gets, right now. High, but stable.
I guess I meant stabilizing down to a lower price
Ohhhh, lol.....I did find this....possible price fixing
DRAM Price Fixing Scheme: The Reason Why Your RAM Is So Expensive
This crap is just killing everything : (
There will be no difference in gaming.
I couldn't wait for prices to come down to where they once were, but just picked up some gskill 3200c14 b-die for AU$283 Fedex delivered (after $20 discount code) from newegg.
seems pubg likes faster ram from what ive seen is pretty big difference between 3000 and 3600mhz in parts.
DDR3 hasn't really increased by obscene amounts. Even if it did it would be sort of understandable since it's no longer being produced. It's the DDR4 prices that's gone out of hand.
He was saying that was at the time of the increases, i.e. double.....which is pretty significant. Naturally now we have moved to DDR4 so less demand for DDR3.
What would you choose out of these two? I want absolute best gaming perf for under $400 but also want rice rgb
Seems like it's 3600mhz with looser timings or 3200mhz with tighter.
the prettier ones it's b-die...
Tighter timing one is better, just check if Scorptec still has that 3200 C14 TridentZ RGB kit going for 349, that kit has bdie.
why is bdie so good?
i pulled this from another forum...is it correct?
i thought it was the stuff they used for higher mem speeds simply cos it was the only mem that was capable of it. better process? wouldnt have a clue.
i remember from years ago that lower capacity sticks were easier to over clock than higher capacity sticks. dont know why.
Best DRAM IC for overclocking if you are chasing high clock speed and yet you want the lowest latency.
Is this bdie? How do you tell? Does bdie have a better chance at exceeding stock timings?
Yeah its B-die. Nice ram. Most Trident-Z is B-die. Yes, its better for both higher clocks and lower timings. I was running my C17-3733 Tridents at C12-4000 on a Strix Z270 ITX board. Your milage will vary of course, that little Strix was one of only a handful of Z270 boards capable of 4266, punching with the big boys.
A slightly cheaper alternative, also B-die, is C14-3200 Flare-X. I'm currently using these on a Ryzen 1700 and Asrock AB-350 Fatal1ty ITX board, @ C14-3600 stable.
