Was looking for DDR4-3600 but found this Patriot Viper DDR4-3733 for less:

https://www.amazon.com/Patriot-Vi...op?ie=UTF8

From the reviews, looks like people are getting anywhere from 3400 - 3733 actual speeds depending on CPU/motherboard (Ryzen users too).

Got my memory and on my Ryzen 2700X/ MSI X370 Gaming Pro motherboard combo, I can't get it to run at 3733, but I did it get it running at 3600 w/16-18-18-18-38 timings (YMMV). It is Single Rank (1T) memory.

Other users have confirmed that this is Samsung B-Die, but using Thaiphoon Burner, It comes up as Hynix Part Number: H5AN8G8NCJR-TFC, 8 GB C-Die.

The DDR4-3400 version (CL16) is $10 cheaper:

That's the 3400Mhz version (which is the same price on amazon). The $139 one is the DDR4-3733 speed.

Tempted by this, but it's not on my motherboard's QVL so I don't know if I should risk buying it and not being able to get near the advertised speed.

Um, yeah. I didn't say it was DDR4-3733 speed.
You implied it by listing it as an option and not explicitly saying it wasn't 3733. Kind of an important point on a thread about 3733MHz RAM.

newegg is out of stock on the 3400 speed anyway, so it's moot. Smilie

It's fulfilled by Amazon, so you have easy/free returns if it doesn't run at its rated speed. No risk for you.

Went ahead and Pre-ordered the 3733MHz CL17 stuff. Was going to order some 3200 CL14 for a new build, but this was cheaper. Despite the higher latency I think the speed will make up for it.

Seems like a decent deal.

I haven't ordered RAM from Amazon so I wasn't sure about their policy on returning opened RAM. Thanks!

NP, hope the RAM works for you. Amazon's return policies are second only to Costco, as long as it's from Amazon or a "Fulfilled by Amazon" seller (since they're responsible for the shipment/customer service on those). If they don't work at the rated speed, just say they're defective/not working properly and they'll even send you a return shipping label.

Yes, but some of us don't pay tax with Newegg but do with Amazon, making Newegg the preferred option. Heck some time higher priced Newegg items come out cheaper due to no tax.

So I think it's a relevant post. Options are always good.

At only a $10 price difference the only reason to get the 3400 over the 3733 is availability. The 3733 is basically a pre-order. Still, 3733MHz stuff from Amazon, I'm willing to wait a couple of weeks for the faster RAM.


Lets see how it compares to my 3200 CL 14 DDR4 (32GB) I got for a great price in mid 2106.

FYI, the product description for the 3733mhz version shows the correct timings for the Samsung B-die of 17-19-19-39. There was one review from October showing a typhoon image that the 3733 sticks he got were the Hynix version with timings of 17-21-21-41. I can't trust that what I'll receive is the correct product, so I cancelled my order. I'd like to know what you get next week.

Click Patriot->3733, this looks to be the confirmed b-die model
