*YMMV* - Some people aren't seeing the lower price of $119.99! (Might be targeted, or perhaps you just have to click around a bit.)

Had been looking at this ram for a new build @ $134.99 per pair. Just ordered tonight when the price dropped to $119.99. Bought 2 sets. If price shows @ $134.99 just scroll down to the other sellers. Still Newegg, not sure why I had to do this once. Lower price showed after.

Would be slicker if each stick was 16 or 32gb instead of paltry 8gb.
Ah.... really man? Come on now.

Where do you come up with 2x16GB or 2x32GB DDR4-3600 would be at this price? Heck... even slower DDR4-2400 wouldn't be near this price as well.

Guess I'm less price sensitive. I only use ECC fully buffered memory these days.

Probably not. Typically want a manufactured ic by Samsung. Samsung's b-die is what you want and it has a 16-16-16-36 timing at 3600 speed. This on the other hand is not a Samsung die, probably Hynix or micron.

I am with you on ECC but where do you get 3600MHz ECC RAM?

Anyone attempt to install these yet? Mine arrives tomorrow for a new build with i5-9600K on the ASUS TUF Z390M PRO Gaming MOBO from Microcenter.

I'm upgrading an old Sandy Bridge PC build so I'm reusing the Prodigy M case, RM650 power supply & Hyper 212+ cooler. I finally accepted that it was time to retire that i5-2500K and let the GTX 1080 spread its wings!

I had random BSOD issues with G.skill memory for that original build and ultimately replaced those sticks with Corsair RAM so I'm a bit antsy about buying G.skill memory again. Fingers crossed...

These installed just fine and are humming along at 3600Mhz after enabling XMP in bios. I'm happy.

These are most likely Hynix chips but surprisingly all the reviews are very positive and are mostly from Ryzen users. Pretty much all of them could get up to the max frequency supported by their motherboards (3400-3500 range) and the only user with a motherboard supporting 3600 speed was able to achieve it with zero problems.

I did not expect the positive results other than from Samsung B-die chips, but other verified B-die products somehow have more bad reviews than this random set of RAM. (but with only 6 reviews, not really safe to make firm conclusions so it's definitely still a risk).

Just out of curiosity I went ahead and bought a pair since the price is excellent. Even if it only goes up to 3400/16, that's still a better price than anything I can find. A few of the reviews are from B450 motherboards and I'm running an X470 Aorus Pro so unless I just get an unlucky set, in theory I should be able to get the same settings they did. 3400/16 to 3600/19 range. Worst case scenario I have a Coffee Lake i5 spare system that it should be fine with if my Ryzen doesn't like it.
