Quote: ”Hynix shutdowns and high demands have RAM prices through the roof right now. It's absurd to even fathom the fact that even lower end packages require at least $70 for 8GB of some off-branded, no-name, "slow" sticks. Honestly for the amount (16GB) and the speed (2400MHz), it's really a small premium for solid quality sticks. They start out at good clock rates and seem to only want to clock up from there. Even if not so many things depend on memory speeds anymore, it's nice to pick up every bit of performance you can. Without paying a gross amount more, these sticks are really worth it in the long run. I wouldn't see replacing them in any near term unless, of course, you do a complete full upgrade to the DDR4 world when it rolls around. These sticks are definitely in it for the long run whether you overclock or not.”
