For those wondering, yes, RAM speed can make a significant difference. Most notably if you have an AMD Ryzen CPU.

I checked against camelcamelcamel for price tracking history. It looks like the lowest its been was $110ish, and averaging around $160-170 even with the massive upswing in memory prices.

I haven't done a ton of research but upon first glance this seems like a good deal for a set like this.

Will that give you a 10% boost in performance? Because that's a 10% boost in price....

If you are running AMD Ryder, yes you can get around 10% increase.

Single rank RAM so worth passing and getting dual rank RAM (even slower dual rank RAM benches faster than higher speed single ranked RAM)

You are confusing dual rank and dual channel. They are not the same thing. Please do some research before commenting again.

Dual Rank DIMM memories are faster than Single Rank DIMM. Dual Channel + Dual Rank is the best to go with.

Maybe things are different on Shitel systems, but with AMD Ryzen, single rank is faster.

Holy shit you are stupid. Those figures don't tell me anything. What was the testing process? Which CPUs were tested? Your dumb little chart is severely lacking in relevant information. I don't know about Shitel systems, but on AMD Ryzen, single rank is faster.

I don't understand your point. Your screenshot is showing that (in most cases) a faster Single Rank memory module is slower than a lower speed Dual Rank module? What am I missing here!?!

I'm not trying to shit on you, I just don't see the logic right now. The memory in the OP is 10% less than what you're proposing, but I'm not seeing 10% in increased performance by going your route.... especially in these harsh memory times.

This is single rank. They sell dual rank memory thats 3400. So you dont need to buy memory as slow as what they tested for dual rank. In that case it was a ~500mhz difference and it was almost equivalent in results. Some cases it was faster and other cases it was slower. A 200mhz difference isnt as great so chances are it will be faster. They might even sell 3600 dual rank memory as well, im not sure as its not really advertised either way
