    The seller has accepted my return anyway.

    I am thinking this - https://www.ebuyer.com/740025-crucial-8gb-ddr4-2400-sodimm-laptop-memory-ct8g4sfs824a

    Here is the full list -https://www.ebuyer.com/store/Compon...cat/DDR4-2400MHz?sort=price+ascending&247=8GB

    What is that Hyper X ram? Are you just paying for the brand/plastic covering?

    The Kingston Hyper X in that list has lower latency/timings CAS 14 I believe, so it’s better vs CAS 17 for the regular Crucial. In real world use you won’t see much difference don’t worry too much about it. Go for whichever is cost effective. My modules are CAS17, 2400 MHz.

    Never new Newegg had a UK site, here it is -

    https://www.newegg.com/global/uk-en/p/pl?N=101582554 600213066 601190333&Order=PRICE

    Never heard of Patriot, G Skill or GEIL? Only heard of Crucial tbh, they do have slightly lower latency (15 or 16) but i will never notice the difference i suppose.

    This is what i posted to that i am going to get at £29.90 delivered. CL=17

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Crucial-...952403?hash=item3d96611f13:g:e2QAAOSwwrNdto2p

    This is the exact same ram on Newegg at £46.41 delivered !!! CL=17
