These are the sticks that are great for Ryzen aren't they?



They're based on Hynix MFR IC so isn't optimal, but they'll work just fine.

For Ryzen I'd only really recommend Samsung B-Die IC (if you truly want optimal) for which I'd also only recommend G.Skill TridentZ (I went with 4266 rated sticks, running at 3466C14), my choice would be the 3200C14 or C16 kits.

Corsair Vengeance LPX sticks work nicely too, but you want v5.40 (Samsung) not v5.39 (Hynix). So go TridentZ for ease.

I picked a set of these up off ebay for a similar price and they've been great value for money. Heat from me

Thanks for the good info.

Thanks for the good info.



No worries.

To clarify, the reason I suggest TridentZ is simply as you have assurance over the chips used. Corsair and many others use IC's from multiple manufacturers to keep prices and supply in check.

Shame prices are still wild.

Hi Hoff. I've just received the Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 Vengeance LPX ram kit to go with my Ryzen 1600 build. I'm using a ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING motherboard. Unfortunately the modules are v5.39. The TridentZ you recommended don't seem to be listed on the compatibility list for my motherboard. Can you recommend anything from the QVL list ?

Hi,

I wouldn't put too much emphasis on the QVL list, most of them aren't updated frequently.

With the RAM you have (I bought it before Ryzen launched) I managed a OC at the time of 3300 with tighter timings.

Advice wise I've acquired most of my information from overclock.net/f/1…rds I'd recommend you visit this and find your user community. But as we're both ASUS users I suspect some of my learning from the Crosshair will overlap, so check that thread too.

I'd still buy whatever speed G.Skill TridentZ you can afford. But I'll head on Partpicker later and drop you some ideas.

Your Corsair will work if you just want to use it, it's just less OC friendly.

That's great cheers. The corsair came from amazon today but has clearly been previously opened (possibly returned due to being v5.39} so I've arranged to return it. I have 30 days though so mighy test it out first to see what speeds I can get.

Prices are even worse on the G.Skill than when I looked a month ago, the best price i can find on the 3200C16 (RGB, because they look sweet) set is this:

reichelt.com/gb/…%2A

I've ordered from them before, delivery by TNT, 3-4 days. Let me know your budget otherwise.

What did you pay for the Corsair?

I paid £134. Prices are rediculous at the moment
