Hah weird, I may have to retract that since searching for the article shows no results. Read it two days ago, no it's just gone. My bad.

What happened to RAM prices anyway? I started buying parts last year and bought a 2x8GB 3200C16 G.Skill kit in May 2016 for ~$72 USD ($95 CAD at the time). This is when most kits were 2133 or 2400...and 3200 was high end. Most prices were between $60 - $80 USD for 2x8 kits.
Now prices for 2x8 kits are minimum $90 USD for 2133...and up to $200+ for high end kits. It's insane.

I noticed that too. Somehow the ram is more expensive then the board...

Well i got my kit for 98 bucks i think ill just wait it out for bios updates. Running at 2400 for a while wont kill me, i mean eventually it will run at rated speeds.....right?

Eventually motherboard makers should have complete access to memory timings, all that matters at that point is whether or not they'll test your specific kit and validate it. So the answer is maybe; at the very least if you're able to match a AMD verified kit with tertiary timings, you should be able to get your kit to work manually in the long run.

From what I've read (so take it for what it's worth) the CAS 16 is the Hynix and it just doesn't run right with Ryzen. But don't make any moves on this but I'd look into it if you plan on keeping that mem in that system permanent. You can also try to trade with a intel user for some samsung. I really havn't done any research on it so can't give you a definitive answer.

I remember reading a post a few days ago that explained how you could determine which RAM ICs you had based on the serial number. I can't really be arsed to go digging it up but I'm sure you could figure it out with a quick google search.

All good buddy. No offense and hopefully, no harm unto you. thumb.gif

It's just that at the moment, these really are the best kit to buy. Maybe you can't see the performance yet as metrics don't show it yet. But definitely will be noticeable when Ryzen gets the same lovin' as Intel. (YES FinalWire, update AIDA64!) biggrin.gif

They say it's the supply. Or maybe demand as well. redface.gif

I dont put much weight into the samsung vs hynix thing, i mean sure out of the box maybe the cas 14 stuff gets along better with ryzen but i dont see that as a permanent thing.

Its 160 dollars for the cheapest cas 14 3200 kit right now, its not worth 60 dollars for 2 cas latency to me.
