RAM suggestions without giving us type, general specification of what you want, what you want to do with it or price range?

I've heard good things about this.

I think I'll stick with 8GB or maybe even 16GB (Even though that's overkill) that runs at 1600-2133 Hz for gaming (Remember me? custom PC.) Basically under $200 for 16GB and under $100 for 8GB. Sticking with a blue and black color scheme for this budget build ($500-$550).

What do you think of the Lenovo or bargain idea? Your budget is the size of an ant and is not very good for price to performance ratio right now as the budget doesn't just include the desktop but other components.

It's $500-$550 for just the desktop. The OS and Monitors don't count.

What is its main purpose.

 

I read your initial post with Adobe and all that, but I couldn't make sense of what you were trying to do with it. This is the PC Enthusiast fi thread so we always think Gaming.

 

Drop me what you want to use it for. Various uses etc

Black and blue?

 

Hyperx.

 

Avoid G.Skill like the plague.

I have never had problems with any RAM I have used or bought. I've bought from most 'brand' names. Even though their origins are probably the same.

Just get 8GB, don't waste too much money on fast RAM, it doesn't really make a big difference.

I've worked in the computing industry and know the failure rate or each brand component that I've had my hands on. G.Skill and OCZ are by far the worst out there.

Indeed, unless you're overclocking or have cash to burn, anything beyond 1600MHZ doesn't really give much benefits.

Failure rate for each brand based on what? Based on the units that your company bought, or a 'statistic' and if so, where did those numbers come from.

 

There was a recent experiment done by a data storage center that published HDD failure rates. I posted it here. The article itself was very good by the company itself. It made many disclaimers etc etc.

 

Many tech sites posted it without alerting of the disclaimer...and from the comments I read. Nobody read the article/blog post. But basically, if the failure rates are internally recorded based on what the company buys itself, than that isn't very accurate.

 

But if it's an industry wide failure rate, I would first need to ask how that can even by discerend and why such companies will ever release such data for every computing company to know.

I've heard many good things about the Intel Celeron CPU. Maybe the Pentium D as well. 

80TB of unadulterated pr0n.

 

Also, Pentium D is a pretty good CPU.

Failure rate for my company as well as all RMA's processed by the 5 big major suppliers that import and export parts from overseas into Australia and relations with every other registered computing business in Australia. It excludes the OEM sector because they have there own suppliers and contractors which are NDA'd from regular folks snooping into for information. But OEM's use Hynix based IC's and don't use Corsair, G.SKill or OCZ so it doesn't matter.

 

Tech reports from reviewers as well as announcement from G.Skill and OCZ as well as other users from forums and the like confirm what I've said as well. The original G.Skill Ripjaws failed like no tomorrow, the early OCZ Vertex lineup had a lot of problems with the Indilinx nand flash controller chipset it was using. 

 

This doesn't make the company to stand out as being bad just a raise of pre-caution for what you pay for there is a reason why both G.Skill and OCZ have cheap equivalents of other big brands that have a higher reliability rate (although OCZ is moving in the right direction with there current Sandforce ssd's), G.Skills are still a hit and miss but there warranty makes up for it.

I feel like 8GB is enough. Any more RAM suggestions?
