Basic, get's the job done and the price was right.
Once again, I have chosen a component that is more want than need. I see a theme playing out here. Yes, I don't really need such speedy RAM such as these sticks that boast DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600). But I apparently succumbed because I drank the RAM speed Kool-Aid. I can report that because of the Z270 compatibility and marvelous BIOS there is no farting around with clock speeds and voltage to get that totally unnecessary and expensive super fast RAM up and running on this board. You just jump into the BIOS and with a few clicks you are there.
Pretty good RAM. I haven't updated my bios yet to make full use of the speed, but I am doing that soon. Hopefully it makes better use of it because when I used userbenchmark, it was seriously underperforming.
This was the cheapest DDR4-3200 RAM. With good reviews and a color that kinda matches the theme, this was a no-brainer.
I have a lot to say about these memories... I just don't know why one of them could run up to 2933 and the other one would go above 2800. One pair is for my friend, so I saved the 2933 pair for him. I guess it's a MoBo issue, I might need to do more research and tweak OC manually for a bit.
Easy to install. Was able to get it running to its advertised 3200 MHz pretty easily. Runs flawlessly.
5 stars for the look and compatibility with my mobo. Easily able to get this memory to run at 3200mhz with an update to the mobo bios.
FWIW, please make sure you look into your motherboards qvl list before buying memory and making sure it is compatible with your mobo. Almost didn't buy these because of bad information I found online.
1 star for the price. I understand this is the way the market is, but it just sucks pricing is this outrageous.
Can't got wrong with 16GB of DDR4-3200. Back when you could get 16GB for what 8GB costs now. And with really nice speeds.
I checked the qualifed list on the MSI website and started searching for part numbers. I ended up settling on 16G of ram with G.Skill Ripjaws V at 3200mhz. The red was actually cheaper than the black by a few bucks. No issues at 3200mhz so far. I will probably need 32G for the lab enviornment but I wanted to save some money and try with 16G first.
Works great! With XMP profile 2 set in Bios it clocks in at 3200. The red heatsinks go with my Black and Red color scheme.
