[Amazon.ca] HyperX Fury White 32GB 2666MHz DDR4 2x16GB sticks $129.51

HyperX Fury White 32GB 2666MHz DDR4 CL16 DIMM Kit of 2 (HX426C16FWK2/32)

- Optimized for Intel's 200 series and X99 chipsets
- Cost-efficient high-performance DDR4 upgrade
- Stylish, low-profile heat spreader in signature FURY asymmetrical design
- At 1.2V, low power consumption compared to DDR43

Just wanted to say the above description was a copy and paste as some parts doesn't make a lot of sense. In any case, it's 32GB RAM comprised of two sticks of 16GB RAM. I don't believe anyone is selling it this cheap. Even cheaper than the previous price error at $70 per 16GB which Amazon cancelled. It was 3200Mhz so there is that. Speaking of which, anyone know how to overclock this ram? I recall seeing reviews saying because it's only 1.2V it'll be easy to overclock. Not that familiar in the practice so please advise if you know how.

The stock timings at 2666mhz are absolute crap, and these are ancient A die chips.

You might be able to squeeze 2800Mhz out of them, but even that is incredibly slow these days.

I found some people trying to OC the single rank version of these and they couldn’t even touch 3000Mhz.

These are really only a good deal if you need 32gb of ram and don’t care how slow it is.

If you want good bargain ram that overclocks well, the Ballistix Sport kits with “AEC” in their product code are great. They are E die and overclock quite well (3800Mhz CL17 seems doable).

Thanks, good to know. So if the intention is to get lots of slow RAM, this is a good deal :)

Must have been a price mistake. 16GB is normally this price.

This was a good deal. This fixation with "speed" is irrelevant to 99% of use cases for this amount of RAM. RAM is fast. Period. That's the whole advantage of having RAM, regardless of whether it's 2666 Mhz or otherwise. Thanks for posting.

Agreed, I paid double the price for DDR4 3200 CL14. But there was no noticable difference to me using it stock (2133 CL22) vs enabling the XMP profile of 3200 CL14.

This is on a Ryzen 3700x, the minute differences just arent noticable to the average user.

Are there any FPS differences when gaming with the increased RAM speed?

Intel gets much less out of ram then amd, so even the numbers above are blown out of proportion in terms of gaming performance for people that only care about gaming.

16gb goes for about $80-90, not 130.

Good thing I didn't order this deal, 258 fps is totally unplayable compared to 265 ;)

In general windows usage I agree. But games there can be same huge gains.. some games are double digit improvements in gram rate as mentioned

Most games are GPU-bound unless you're running are relatively low resolutions with very powerful GPUs. Such as a 2070 or better at 1080p. Or very low resolutions with mid-range GPUs. And if you're getting 144 fps or 164 fps you're not going to see it. It's mostly things like render times where the faster RAM is really going to matter.

For what it’s worth now that the deal is over, I have this exact set with a Ryzen 2600, running easily at 3200... can probably go faster, never tried to push it more.
