Whichever suits your use. The CPU isn't the main factor in memory choice so some idea of what your main requirements for the memory are would be good if you want help picking something specific.

ill be using the pc for gaming.

Your choice of RAM type and speeds will depend on what is supported by the motherboard you use and whether or not you are going to overclock. Do you already have a motherboard?
#4
no but im planing on getting the asrock x370 gaming k4 and it supports up to 3200. yes i am planning to overclock

thanks for the reply. yeh i was looking at the corsair lpx and they actually seem the cheapest ram at the moment. 3000mhz is £121 and the 3200mhz is £125. only other one ive seen near that price is the G.SKILL TridentZ Series F4-3200 for £140

Anyone know if there is a website that lets you check the specifications of RAM? It seems that single rank sticks using Samsung B-die are recommended for best results with Ryzen. But when trying to check what rank and die a specific model uses, I can't find any information.

A pretty safe bet is anything 3400+ or 3200 with a low CL timing will be samsung B-die. Most of the 'standard' 3200 kits are Hynix etc.

I think only Samsung is used at 3400+ speeds as they are the only chips reliably clocking to those speeds.

Thanks for the info, that still leaves a bit of a gray area though. For instance, I was (seems its jumped in price 50% today) interested in getting some G.Skill Ripjaws V 3200 2x16GB, but couldn't find any information on the rank and die. G.Skill have introduced their AMD targeted series recently, which will obviously be good. But possibly their older sets like the Ripjaws would have been just as good but at a lower price.

I agree it is a bit of a nightmare to get answers. Generally if it is a 3000/3200 CL16 kit you are looking at it is likely Hynix now. Micron are probably used at lower speeds than that.

If however it is a more 'expensive' set with CL14 or anything in excess of 3400mhz, I expect that there is a very high chance you'll only find the Samsung chips in those speed ranges.

Best thing to do if is try and search forums with the part number and see if you can find a definate answer.

I'm sure the above rings true, especially if you look at the G.Skill Trident series.
