>he fell for the unbuffered meme
>not getting 2TB of ECC ram off ebay for $3

>> No.65094365

Plenty on Amazon and Aliexpress.
Alternatively I could switch to a Xeon, buy 32gb of registered memory and still end up cheaper than a single 2x8gb DDR4 kit.

>> No.65094376

What do you need ECC for? Are you running a server farm?

>> No.65094984

why can't i get 64gb sticks yet?

It's so he can feel superior to you.

Are you a brainlet?

>> No.65095058

You probably won't ever be able to buy them, despite being part of the spec.
Right now.

What, your CPU isn't laying eggs right now?

>> No.65095087

Only Mummy Su can lay Ryzens.

$500 for the mobo.

>> No.65095394

Where are you looking? I can buy high end X79 cheaper than Z370.

>> No.65095904

It can be cheaper. Quick, someone make a website explaining 28 security flaws about ram that can compromise your system, which requires people to physically install compromised sticks in to your pc.

>> No.65096075

You can buy 8(2x4)GB of DDR3 1600Mhz Ram for 35€ on Amazon new. It's fucking cheap and works perfectly.

>> No.65096078

That's not cheap. That's reasonably priced.

>> No.65096087

Intel, your marketing department is showing.

>> No.65096094

Well i got my 16GB ddr4 2666Mhz for 86€ so it's still cheaper than that.

>> No.65096097

Yeah, DDR4 is overpriced. It should be worth half that.

>> No.65096119

Where? Locally it's around €200 for 16 GB DDR4 now. This happens to be what I paid for the 32 GB in my current system. I'd rather give my nephew half my RAM than pay to upgrade his computer. But I don't want to give away half my RAM so screw him. 4 GB is "only" €54 but that's barely enough to start Windows these days.

No 64 GB sticks for you.

>> No.65096140

Did you just wake up from a 2 year coma?

>> No.65096149

Well i don't think what i paid is overpriced. I think paying 170€ for the same shit today would be overpriced.

Almost a year ago on Amazon. I waited for a deal (regular price already was 120€+) for a month and it took a month to deliver the ram but the price was really great. 2 days ago there were 16GB(4x4GB) for 115€ on Amazon. Or 1x8GB for 58€ (both 2400Mhz).

>> No.65096161

Probably not, nobody would pay for keeping you alive in the first place.

>bought two more 4gb sticks from a friend for 25$ a few years ago
>tfw 32gb of ram installed, still have 8 left over for about as much as some people have to pay for 16gb of ram nowadays
