RAM compatibility question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have this 8GB stick of RAM in my system: http://a.co/d/9Qb7hJa

 

I want to get another 8GB, so the easiest thing to do would be to buy the exact same stick again, but it is nearly $100 on Amazon and $85 on Newegg (it was like $45 in early 2017 when I built my PC). There are other 8GB sticks for cheaper ($60ish), but then I have to worry about compatibility.

 

So the question is: are there any RAM options that are cheaper than the one I have, but are still compatible with it?

 

Here is the parts list for my build, if it is relevant: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Gazelem/saved/GQW6hM

 

Thanks in advance!

Should be fine.


Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

Get a stick that has the same operating frequency and similar cas latency


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Okay, what about timings?

Problem is, die/controller differences might cause issues and slow down the RAM as a whole. If speed isn't an issue and don't mind the performance hit of mismatched sticks then you're okay.

Cas latency is a timing. It's considered the most significant timing, and most timings will be grouped under a given cas latency
