Five bucks more gets you 2666 RAM [newegg.com] with CAS 16. This 2400 is CAS 17. Anyone know whose memory chips they use?

I've been looking for some RGB modules for my Dell system and it's frustrating because every manufacturer advertises their RAM at the max XMP speed. No mention of what speed the memory runs at in a non-XMP system. Usually, it runs a dog-slow speed like 2133. Why? Why can't default non-XMP be 2400 or 2666 with XMP offering the non-standard 3000/3200/3600 speeds?

Very frustrating for us with non-XMP system. It's almost false advertising as most never mention XMP anywhere.

Probably, but way to slow for modern AMD CPU's

thanks for this post OP! I didn't grab this set but the coupon code in the main body was very helpful as it wasn't listed ANYWHERE on the newegg page for the memory I wound up grabbing.

Went this kit as I had been looking for an RGB 16GB memory kit for under $60 bucks and really like the aggressive design of these WarHawk sticks https://www.newegg.com/oloy-16gb-...6820821162

DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600)
Timing 16-18-18-36
CAS Latency 16
Voltage 1.35V

i was also looking at these one too as the price is very nice for a 3200mhz rgb ram. but im trying to build a mini itx system in the geeek a50 case and i dont know if those wings will be problematic with the heat sink.

I don't have any experience with that case but a quick reddit search has confirmed people being able to fit the NH-L12 in that case which has a max height of 93mm I can't imagine them being any taller than that even with the heat spreaders

it was the lowest price I'd seen on a 3200 RGB kit. If they didn't fit you could always return them or buy something like a an upHere rgb heat sink. You can get a 2 pack on amazon for $15

Of course that'd make them more expensive and you'd probably be better off just getting corsair ram at that price

yeah i was trying to consider the heat sink too. been searching around for the last hour to see and came across the rgb uphere on amazon for 15$. looks like the height is 65mm fo the cpu fan. geeek a50 max cpu height fan is 65mm so it would fit in terms of height. but not sure if the fins/fan of the cpu would be unmountable with this set of rams as the itx motherboard has the ram slots right up next to the cpu. looking on youtube the Noctua NH-L9a is a 92mm fan and its already right up to the rams. just like you said, the heat sink on this ram is just too high and most likely not fit, not worth risking as returning to newegg is a pain.

Never go below 3000 for AMD even that is low 2400 is fine for intel

Is there a notable speed difference between 2400 and 3000 RAM if you have enough ram?

So tempting, though concerned about the reliability of this unknown brand. Is there any reason for concern if it passes memtest86 upon install?

This is a thread with some info: https://www.overclockers.com/foru...-brand-RAM

As mentioned there, most RAM is manufactured by only a few companies. Though the manufacturing from the OEM affects the end product as well.

Rule of thumb, RAM should come with lifetime warranty if its worth its salt. This one seems to, tempted as well for a Ryzen 3600 Build I am planning.

will this fit an Imac? The existing modules are DDR4 2400Mhz. It seems a good price to fill the 2 spare slots.
