    Ripped from Slickdeals.

    Product Link.

    • DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800)
    • Timing 19-20-20-40
    • CAS Latency 19
    • Voltage 1.35V

    I'd be interested in experiences clocking these at ~3466 at ~CL16.

    Anyone know the type of IC used or tried these with an updated x470 platform?

    I want to move to 32GB and doing it via 4 dimms isn't a good idea from what I have read.

    Ugh they are of course an ugly red heat spreader. No grey or black option from what I can find. Top NE review claims 3466c16 stable on a 2700x.

    i've noticed that with the heat spreaders its always some aggressive alien looking type shit, like we're all children and cant have anything looking toned down, or minimalist lol.

    Duh, because red makes it faster. If it only had flames or racing strips down the spreaders. Only then is it fast enough.

    I was expecting some sort of crazy heatspreader design from the comments, but it's a pretty mild design to me. (y)

    That's a damn good deal. Too bad it's red.

    That is a seriously good price. But Gskill.. I don't know about them.. I generally stick with Corsair ram.

    I've used Ripjaws V 3200 on the 1950x. Does not hit 3200. Then again, never had any fail on me and I ran a ton of it at rated speed in DDR3 days. RipJaws X or whatever.

    I feel old and remember when people bought computer parts based on specs and price but not color.

    Nothing wrong with G.Skill at all. They're a solid brand. :)

    They are a solid vbrand, have used 25 different ddr3/4 Kits in gmsing builds since they are cheaper and have a lifetime warranty.

    Fun fact, in my lifetime of custom system building (started in '96) I have purchased at LEAST 300-400 sticks of ram ranging from EDO to everything that was cutting edge at the time and the only time I've ever had a failed stick was with the infamous Crucial DDR stuff (yellow heatspreaders) that was all the rage with everyone running highly OC'd A64s and Optys. They came in 1 and 2 GB dual channel kits and Crucial had an insane failure rate and recalled them unless you wanted to keep them.

    They were the fastest stuff out at the time but like the Micron GDDR6 /Turing issue, had teething issues.

    My suggestion to anyone who doesn't like the color is to get some quality spray paint and change the color to whatever they want that way. I've recycled aluminium off memory and it does not come off easily. Odds are high that trying to peel the stock heat spreaders off will damage the ram.

    The RAM brands that you buy (Corsair, G.Skill, etc...) don't actually manufacture RAM. They purchase chips from manufacturers such as Samsung, Hynix, and Micron then add their branding to it in the form of heat spreaders, colored PCBs, etc... High end G.Skill uses Samsung B-die which is widely considered the holy grail of RAM chips.
