With memory prices at one of the lowest points in years, now is a great time to be looking for memory upgrades. Summer hardware releases are in full swing, there is competition from both Intel and AMD, and the Red brand has thoroughly fixed the memory issues of generations past. No longer do users have to worry about memory compatibility or shopping for expensive AMD-branded kits. With 3200 MHz natively supported on the new Ryzen platform, options for enthusiasts have never been more open.
Corsair is a brand that needs no introductions. The California-based company has been a staple of the enthusiast community for decades, producing power supplies, peripherals, SSDs, coolers, and even entire pre-built systems. One of the brand's most storied and successful family of products consists of their high-performance memory kits. Balancing high performance with style and impeccable quality, Corsair memory kits are a staple of the enthusiast hardware market.
