    thats really great gskill... except for when the motherboard has to shake hands and play nice with these. Reply

    Any information if and when there will be big Ryzen / Threadripper memory testing?
    Both platform seems to like tight timings and memory can have very big impact on performance!

    Its a FlareX kit dude. It will have ZERO compatibility issues with Threadripper Reply

    I'll count the lack of RGB lighting, or lack of any lighting at all, as a plus.

    As for ECC, I don't thnink there are any kits over DDR-2666 with ECC support.

    generally ECC rams tend to adhere to JEDEC specs rather than fraudulent SPD enhancements. Reply

    Just because a manufacturer can make faster RAM than the standard allows for doesn't mean it's fraudulent. JEDEC could easily update the spec, they just choose not to. Reply

    I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    To be more precise, most of the time they are XMP profiles I think. Reply

    2666, 2933, and 3200 have been standard JEDEC DDR4 speeds since the June 2017 release of the DDR4 B spec. Reply

    Nope, ECC maxes out at 2666 for now. Reply

    I would love to buy faster ECC ram for my Threadripper system. Reply

    Agree, I'm getting sick of these RGB crap everywhere.

    I can't wait to see a decent workstation mobo, memory, etc.. without these annoying distracting LEDS.
    I always turned off when they are included in videocards.

    Another one here sick of the colour crap. I'm not so fussed if I can turn it off but I despise having to install unnecessary software to control the bloody LEDs.... that's more bloatware I just don't need or want.

    AMD really need to sort this memory issue out as a priority - bearing in mind their advantage is bang for buck in many regards, this is negated when people already have a load of DDR4 RAM and may have to buy another lot.

    Not like the CPU will run 50% slower, at most you get 5-10% extra at best case coming from DDR4 2133. If you got those kind of memory you knew the slowest DDR4 will always hold up performance when DDR3 at the same speeds will always perform better. Reply

    No official price yet, but those of similar 128GB kits on Newegg suggest it'll cost ($1100-1500) about as much as a 1950X and mobo combined even if they don't charge a first out the gate markup. Reply

    Amazon has them on preorder of around 500 USD for the 64GB one, so I agree with you on the 1,000 USD price tag. Reply
  • nul0b - Saturday, August 12, 2017 - link

    Can you post a link to this supposed pre-order. The kit only shows 32GB and 128GB capacity... Reply
  • HomeworldFound - Saturday, August 12, 2017 - link

    The only 64GB FlareX kit I see on Amazon are the 2400 model. I guess he was mistaken. Reply

    I recall seeing RAM compatiblity problems with other new processors both in recent times and in the past. Figuring out the right memory to buy these days is a lot easier than it was before. Ugh, I remember EDO and tin-lead with 2K refresh was a problem when buying 72-pin SIMMs and then there was older 30-pin RAM and those stupid ISA slot RAM cards. At one point I had an 8088 with double stacked memory chips though that was long after the 8088 was an obsolete dinosaur. Who could afford to pile up the memory like that when those computers were new? Things are a bit better now and at least the resources are available on the Internet if you need to know what sorts of memory you ought to purchase for your system if you're going through the trouble of finding RAM for a build or an upgrade. Relying of iffy or vague printed manuals from vendors was sometimes a real nightmare. Reply

    If I decide to do a 1900x build I will be looking at this 32GB CL14 kit from Gskill. Reply
  • Lolimaster - Saturday, August 12, 2017 - link

    Out of a sudden 16GB sticks are rarity now. no 2x16GB or 4x16GB's... Reply
  • nul0b - Saturday, August 12, 2017 - link

    The timings on G.Skill's website
    shows :

    but you guys have :
    CL16 16-16-38
    Can you fix or clarify this?

    Looking forward to seeing Anandtech review these at 2400 speed. Reply
