Budget RAM

Go to solution Solved by RONOTHAN##,

You've got 3 options:

  1. If you don't want to overclock your memory, get whatever the cheapest 3200MHz CL16 kit you can find, usually it's a Silicon Power kit but it's not always. These kits are fine.
  2. If you want to overclock your memory, you still have 2 options
    1. Go for a kit of Crucial Ballistix 3000MHz CL15 or 3200MHz CL16, they overclock pretty well and are usually pretty cheap
    2. Go for a used kit of Samsung B die, either looking at Corsair kits for v4.31 or going for the other guaranteed B die bins like 3200MHz CL14, 4400MHz CL19-19-19 or 4000MHz CL19-19-19

Hi all, I am looking for some suggestions on some good budget 2x8gb RAM sticks. Good, but not expensive, gold plated, Lamborghini, stupid-expensive RAM. Here is my build so far, (obviously it is far from done)

 

PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wcb6Q6

CPU: Intel Core i7-12700 2.1 GHz 12-Core Processor  ($342.98 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Gigabyte B660 GAMING X AX DDR4 ATX LGA1700 Motherboard  ($169.99 @ Amazon)
Video Card: MSI Radeon RX 6600 XT 8 GB GAMING X Video Card  ($454.99 @ GameStop)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 11 Pro OEM 64-bit  ($159.97 @ Amazon)

Thanks in advance,

WeTuLo

Budget?

Country?

Uses?

 

Just sort by lowest and find the cheapest 3200 cl16/3600 cl18 rams you can get, brand does not matter unless you are searching for a specific ic (neo forza, micron, etc.)

 

If you are looking for cheaper you can get generic 2133-2666 8gb samsung d die sticks and overclock to 3200/3600, they are capable of 4000+ but theres no vccsa adjustment for non k w non z board

Thing is vccsa is locked for non k + non z board combos so going over 3600 is a struggle, but lower bin 2133-2666 bare pcb samsung rams oc to 3200/3600 rather easily so thats the oc option, you may even be interested in dual sided samsung 4gbit e die since they should be able to do 3200/3600 cl14 at reasonable voltages (1.5-1.7v) and you wont be clocking that high anyways so dual sided disadvantage is gone and you keep the performance benifit of dual rank
