Actually this is pretty average deal for this speed and timings. In fact you can get ddr4 3200 which will do better timings for the same price without RGB, do a search on eBay Newegg and (believe it or not) Amazon, and you'll find regular price similar stuff at same price.

This deal is pretty tepid. At best the only thing that makes this even OK is the fact that it's RGB

The extra 200 MHz is marginal in benchmarks and unnoticeable in daily use. Most RGB ram has been at $180+ for 2018. Haven't seen a better deal but I'll concede there may have been one or two this year through eBay coupons or whatnot.

An excellent deal was getting similar RAM (different brand, better timing) for $90 last year.
So true, prices went insane. I bought this from jet.com on 8/6/16 for $49.64: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Pr...-_-Product

I put 8GB in two separate Ryzen 1700 rigs, it easily overclocks to 2933 MHz.

Agreed the 200mhz is unnoticeable but the comment was meant for a comparison. And like I said, if you discount the fact that it has RGB, this is pretty tepid.

Adding 2 LED strips on memory does not warrant a $30 regular price increase. It's more like an RGB TAX....

The time machine is not buying overpriced things. RAM prices doubled in a short period and have now dropped some, but are nowhere near where they should be.

There's an 8 billion dollar lawsuit about it.

Don't buy overpriced stuff just because it was more overpriced yesterday.

Should, check your motherboard manufacturer's compatibility list for guaranteed success.

Exactly what I'm doing, guaranteed eBay/Newegg/etc.. are going to put up a battle with them. Grab your eBay cashback, and wait for the coupon...

Remind me if I can mix and match RAM in quad-channel configuration? I have a set of Corsair Vengeance LPX.
