The ones I had ran 3600MHz CL15 with minimal voltage increase.

Is that a recommendation then? Unsure to sourcing individual items when on offer/available or to get a bundle with more compatability/warranty.

If I hadn't already bought a Vega 56 and case/psu then I'd probably buy a pre built system with. A 3 year warranty. They can get very hot on here! Sometimes over 1000 °.

Individual parts are usually very well warrantied too, if anything fails. Most quality PC components should have at least a 3 year warranty- RAM often has 'lifetime.'

This is good RAM. I saw slightly faster Patriot for sale around Christmas which has gone up again but still a good deal. The Patriot Viper 4 Blackout 3600MHz CL17 at ebuyer for £5 more delivered at the moment is good pick and offers the sweet spot of price/performance IMO.

You won't go far wrong with any of these modules.

Thanks for the suggestions.

In your first post you say you got the timings down to cl15. now I'm not sure exactly sure what this means timings voltage etc.

That's primarily why I was considering a bundle of mb,cpu, ram.

I don't think I have seen cl15 on 3600mhz mentioned on here before? If that's true maybe this is a no brainer. But if that was true you wouldn't be recommending the patriot from ebuyer.I'm check them out further tomorrow. Thanks
Got 2 8gbs of these in my current 2600x build, I do a fair bit of coding graphics programs like krita and blender, occasionally unity as well. Obviously the ryzen chips only use dual channel so I was wondering if I have this right that running 4 sticks of this would double my capacity but could cause actual read and write speeds to be lower as the bandwidth is shared across 4 sticks instead of 2? Can anyone let me know if I'm talking rubbish e.g. would each stick run at 3200mhz cl15 whether I have 2 or 4 sticks? I'm not sure exactly how it works so anyone with expertise I'd greatly appreciate an answer. I gotta imagine that doubling my capacity is gonna definitely be better overall as it would prevent disk swapping and allow me to run multiple programs without having to close them to free up memory.
This one is the slightly older version apparently
CMK16GX4M2 Z 3200C16 is the newer one

a few quid more and it says "for AMD Ryzen" on the marketing

I thought the same thing, that 4 sticks would be slower,
but all the videos I've watched seem to measure a slight improvement with 4

I've bought two of the CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16, but I'm expecting to require 32Gb so I checked beforehand to see which way to jump. Either way I'm fine at stumping up another £69 down the road for 32Gb if it turns out I'll need it.
btw Gaming right now is fine on 16Gb, I've got a specific requirement for more ram

I'm not sure on the speed thing, if it says 3200Mhz C15 on the box then that's what I would expect, but I guess a lot comes down to the quality of the motherboard as to whether you'd reach that. Some people see a few problems, some don't.
Best to look at the overclocking reviews of your specific motherboard for any tips on making the most out of it.

As far as I can tell anything at 3200 or higher is fine, and the FPS gains are fairly minimal and maybe not worth the expensive of going to 3600. But then lots of people like to max out their systems and cost is a secondary issue

Thanks, that was indeed interesting however it didn't really answer my question. Good to know that Ryzens are pretty good at compiling on GCC which is what I always use on Linux whereas I've now switched to using VC for Windows. I'll likely upgrade to a 3700x at some point in the future so I'll have all that lovely cache. For now I'll use 4 sticks of this Ram however eventually I may switch up to a faster set i.e. 32gb+ of 3733 cl16 (depending on how cheap ddr4 gets in the next year or two). The Infinity fabric memory clock is a strange beast so it's kinda hard to get a clear cut answer on what is the optimum setup and honestly I think it totally depends on the type of workload due to the large amount of victim cache having such an effect on performance.

Okay, thanks for answering that I have done some research and have purchased anyway so hope to do my own benchmarks. Seems like you're right in that it doesn't decrease performance in most circumstances at least. Sorry I took so long to reply, you're not invisible, I appreciate your answer I just got distracted! Thanks again though .
Is this a decent set of RAM for a gaming PC?

Yes.

--

long answer, the Z version may be better for Ryzen

longer answer,
some guy in another thread instead that this was better for overclocking
amazon.co.uk/Bal…SK/

I bought the pretty much identical Z version of this for a Ryzen 3600, it's fine at 3200Mhz
