Question Is this Memory decent?

HyperX Savage DDR4 Memory 32gb
16gb x2 @2666mhz

http://www.hyperxgaming.com/us/memory/savage-ddr4

It'll be going with a i7 7700k & ASUS Z270 PRIME

Not sure if this memory is good.
I'm able to get this for £100 which seems a good deal but I can't find any reviews of the RAM and it doesn't seem well known.

Thanks.

HyperX not well known? Interesting.
Yes the memory is good. You rarely find memory reviews unless it's Corsair tbh. They seem to be the only ones. But Kingston, GSkill, Samsung, Mushkin, are still good quality.

Hyperx is good ram although 2666 is a bit low in the speed department with that CPU you would be better with some 3200 speed memory if you can afford it

HyperX is now a separate brand from Kingston, so in a way the brand is new.

Thought it was a subsidiary of Kingston, the same way RTG is to AMD

Okay so I'm thinking,

Corsair LPX 3000mhz 16GB £105
or
Kingston Savage 2666mhz 32GB £100

I mostly play games, I do multitask a lot and use Photoshop etc but nothing crazy.

Which would you pick?

Well the 32GB is the better deal simply because it's double the amount. But if you want the speed then get that. Speed doesn't make much a difference though.
