An integral part of building a good PC is getting good RAM, but prices can certainly fluctuate a lot and be a bit offputting. Fortunately, Prime Day is a bit of a leveller and the opportunity arises to not only give your system the memory it deserves, but keep more of your hard-earned in your pocket at the same time.
Whether you're building an Intel or AMD system, or even upgrading a laptop or small-form PC, there's something discounted on Prime Day to get you moving in the right direction.
HyperX Fury 32GB 3466MHz DDR4
This 32GB kit is XMP certified and while it's good for Intel systems, Ryzen PCs will get a huge benefit from its higher clock speed. It even looks pretty good, and the icing on the cake is a solid discount that's applied at checkout.
It's important to know exactly what type of RAM your system requires before clicking that buy button, though. If you're upgrading an older PC you'll need to check whether you need DDR3 RAM over DDR4, likewise on a laptop even though it's using SODIMM sized memory. And if you are using an AMD Ryzen-powered desktop rig, try and avoid lower clock speeds like 2666 MHz. You'll thank us.
Right now, these are the deals to take advantage of on RAM this Prime Day.
If 16GB is all you need then you can't go wrong with this HyperX kit of 3200MHz DDR4. Plug and play you'll get up to 2666MHz but with a simple XMP profile you'll have one click access in the BIOS to unleash the full potential of this RAM.
Give your laptop a RAM upgrade with this SODIMM kit rated at 2400MHz. It's not the fastest out there, but if you're looking for sheer capacity the price at checkout on this two stick kit is extremely good value.
File this under brilliant value as this twin-stick kit will add 16GB of DDR4 to your laptop or small-form PC. The clock speed will be perfectly good for most laptops, and operating at only 1.2V it's also rather efficient.
Everyone knows RGB makes you a better gamer, and this kit from Thermaltake will certainly make the inside of your rig pop. Best of all it can sync up with other RGB systems, like Razer Chroma, or even Amazon's Alexa. You know, so you can use the power of your voice to make your PC lights dance.
If you just want some basic, good value RAM for your PC build then this kit of Ballistix from Crucial is perfect. It supports XMP 2.0 to easily get the best performance out of it and it's fairly low-profile, too, which could come in handy if you're in a smaller build or using a large cooler.
