Killer 16GB 3200MHz memory deals – DDR4 has become affordable

We have heard for months that the prices of DDR4 memory modules are falling, but like every industry, those price reductions like a while to reach consumers. For years, PC builders have complained about the high pricing of DDR4 memory, but now, things have significantly improved, especially in the world of 3200MHz memory modules. 

Today, we are highlighting two DDR4 memory deals that are available within the UK, both of which are DDR4 3200MHz kits from high-profile manufacturers that cost less than £100. Yes, they do not offer idealised CAS-14 timings, but right now they sit at a sweet spot in terms of pricing and performance. 

Let’s start with Corsair’s Vengeance LPX Black 16GB (2x8GB) kit, which currently costs £74.25 at eBuyer. It offers users 16-18-18-36 timings and speeds of 3200MHz at 1.35V over a dual-channel configuration. At this price, this memory is a steal. 

Next up we have G.Skill’s TridentZ 16GB (2x8GB) 3200MHz memory kit, which ships for £89.98 at eBuyer and offers 16-18-18-38 timings at it’s rated 3200MHz speeds. While these modules are £15 more expensive than the above Corsair DIMMs, we know that many consumers prefer the aesthetics offered by G.Skill’s memory modules. PC building is all about variety, and even at £89.98, these modules are well priced.

Move back two years, and the pricing of both of these kits would have been sold for prices that were in excess of £150, higher depending on market conditions. Thankfully, DDR4 pricing has been significantly reduced in recent quarters, making high-speed modules more affordable than ever before, making now the perfect time to upgrade to a new DDR4-based PC platform, be it from AMD or Intel.
