    Yep. And afraid a negative for now, decided to hold on to my E5 v2’s for a while longer , just didn’t make sense to replace them with anything new, v2’s had good performance and are paid for.

    TR people go for ECC RAM, I guess? At least that's what I'm using for my Threadripper system.. I mean, one of the main attractions of the modern AMD platforms is ECC support, so not using ECC memory is kind of a waste. There are affordable ECC UDIMMs with Samsung B-Die chips on the market, so it's pretty much "have the cake and eat it" situation - they're good overclockers and there's error correction working as well.

    DDR3 ECC Unbuffered isn't cheap, it's almost the same price as unbuffered ECC DDR4, so that's more like "unfortunately". :(

    Just bought 128gb (16 x 8gb) PC3L-10600R ECC for $210 shipped earning 21 eBay bucks.

    Wanted to buy 16gb modules but was hard to turn down 128gb for the price.

    Going to fill up my dual CPU 2011 server

    Got 4x4gb hyperx predator ddr4-2800 for $100 AUD last week. got a 1x8gb stick of g.skill 2133 the other day for $50 too. prices are starting to go down, at least over here in Australia (though those deals were more to do with the the seller undercutting).

    I'm seeing 16GB DDR3 PC3-12800R going for about $30~$35. Saw a lot of them go for a little under $30/16GB just yesterday... I was going to place a bid but forgot about it.

    I'm also seeing 32GB DDR3 LR-DIMMs going for $80~$100 each.

    RAM prices fluctuate so much, and don't always trend in 1 direction. Might be a good time to pick up DDR3. Still not feeling it with DDR4 though... my i7 5960X really needs more than 32GB..... :-(

    Other than density, is there any other advantage going for LRDIMM at a premium? I picked up 6 sticks of 16gb pc3-14900r for $35 ea.

    If anyone has spare DDR4 laptop Sodimm, they should really consider getting the adaptor.. i have two 8gb ddr4 sodimm from laptop upgrade that was just laying around so now they can be put to use with the adaptor.... but obviously they are non ecc udimm type....

    DDR3 16GB RDIMM prices are plummeting .... just picked up several sets for $25 per 16GB DIMM. Is this the bottom? Or, will it go lower?

    I accidentally picked up one pair for €57 (probably more 30ish than 25). Had not looked at the timings and thought I had made a killer deal on DDR4;)

    If anyone in EU needs some...;)

    sorry, i bought all of them out, or i would have posted it here like i normally do. i doubt i single-handedly stopped the drop in DDR3 prices though, so there should be more to come.

    yep def seeing some 16GB ddr3 dimm at 25-30 although the one i saw right now are only 8500R or 1066 so a little slow...

    what we need is ddr4 to go down because that will also put indirect pressure on ddr3... like kill 2 with 1 stone.

    These are my 2 saved search options for DDR3:

    16gb +(ddr3,pc3) +(12800,1600) +(reg,server) -(8gb,4gb,2gb)
    16gb +(ddr3,pc3) +(14900,1866) +(reg,server) -(8gb,4gb,2gb)

    Any recommended tweaks to improve the search results?
