XPG LANCER 32GB DDR5 5200MHz

This is the only ram I can find in stock atm for $340 CDN. Since I hope to see my MB ship next week I kinda don't have a choice but to grab it since who knows if or when anymore will be in stock. I do plan on replacing it first chance something decent comes out but my question is how bad do you think it'll be? I've never heard of the brand so I'm not expecting great things. Comes with PMIC and ECC for some reason as well.

Just in case there's any confusion on the ECC that is standard with DDR5. The ECC included in those modules is on-die ECC, which can automatically correct in chip bit flips. It is mostly there to increase stability as process nodes get smaller and bandwidth increases with DDR5.

 

The on-die ECC won't correct in transit errors nor will it report the in chip errors to the platform or the OS.  For that there will still be traditional RDIMMs/LRDIMMs.

 

The on-die ECC is more similar in concept to the error correction in NAND SSDs. 

 

*Edit*

On the topic of the Adata XPG, I had a few DDR3 XPG kits and had no issues with them.

Never heard of Adata?  Man, I had some Adata XPG (I think they were) DDR400 sticks back in the day that did like DDR600 speeds.  Adata's fine as a brand and they've been around forever, what matters is the IC's on the sticks.  I don't know DDR5 at all, so can't really comment, but the brand itself is fine.  Those speeds seem okay for early DDR5.  I'd rock those sticks for a while no problem.

Thanks. I figured they would be ok. They should do well enough till I can find some decent GSkill.

One heck of a nice write-up here:

ADATA's XPG line of memory grows to include their new Lancer DDR5 modules. They offer an XMP rating of...

 

 

Micron chips. Should be pretty decent. ECC is a good thing. Takes error correcting off of the CPU. Should be a good thing for stability. I'm sure the default timings could be tweaked.
