The CAS latency divided by the clock speed is 0.004705882352941, which is the first memory I've seen go on sale in a while that beats the 0.005 value I'm looking for. Awesome, thanks for sharing. My only grief is that the RAM module isn't in multiples of 16 GB, and there's a 4-egg review average on Newegg instead of a 5-egg average. Still some very high-performing RAM, though, for a reasonable price.

Could you tell me how long this will be on sale for? It's a good backup if I can't find a RAM kit with the clock speed/CAS latency combination I'm looking for in a deal that's either one 16 GB module or a 2 x 16 32 GB module. Thanks again for posting.

I mean if you don't mind waiting, why not see how DDR4 matures more? With higher capacity, your trading off speed and latency.

Hi, is this really good memory compared to a 3200 or 3000 with cas of 15? I am building my first pc and not sure which one to buy. I only have left to buy is a ssd,hdd and ram.

Is this surge protector good to protect my pc with a gtx 1070?

Just remember, you may not run these at full speeds with ease. Might require work and for the money, it's worth it.

I'm really wondering how much of a decisive improvement you have between DDR4 3400 and DDR4 2133. Maybe 1-2 FPS for games? A second or two in boot or in render time?

I just picked up 4x8gb DDR4 2133 sticks for my new build (@$130), and everything I've seen points at splitting hairs when it comes to measurable improvement outside a couple hundred different in 5-figure benchmark scores.

The MSI website for my motherboard says 2400mhz is supported, but when it lists out the speed past that, it says (OC) afterwards. Does that mean it won't support 3400 mhz unless I achieve that speed through overclocking? Really confused by that.

Yes, so it's technically out of Jedec specifications/memory standard. It's also dependent on your CPU and motherboard but generally people are having easier time running higher speed DDR4 on skylake then they did with Haswell-E

My new system is:

i5 6600K
Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 5
32GB DDR4 2133MHz
ASUS Strix 970 GTX (already had this--pulling over from my old rig)
1TB SSD

I do some gaming, some video and photo editing, and a lot of Excel work.

I mean in your situation, if you aren't doing anything super intensive and these are average video editing then it won't be a big difference but i'm surprised you chose DDR4 2133. Was it a really good deal or?

Net cost after discounts/cashback was close to $100 for 32GB for Corsair LPX.

Oh okay, I will be on a 6700k. When you say this speed is out of the Jedec specification, does that mean all of the specifications for motherboards would state that caveat for speeds past 2400 mhz?

I'm picky. I look at any excuse to delay buying parts so I can get a sense of what good deals are, what prices are too high, etc., since this is my first build. If I really wanted this card, a 4-egg review average on Newegg wouldn't really stop me from buying it, but since I really want RAM with modules in multiples of 16 GB, I'm looking for any excuse not to purchase RAM from this deal right now.

ram never moves more than a few dollars at a time and hasn't since the 90s. it drifts down over time and you could wait and wait for the perfect deal

but that's so glass half empty. buy it, have fun gaming. if you work an average $40 an hour job the difference between a great deal and normal rate is about half an hour of your time at work
