    I would think its the Hynix ones,although the Micron ones are easier to run at 3600MHZ and tighter timings.

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    Is it me or have RAM prices suddenly gone up in price?

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    If you're looking at RAM, in addition to Frequency and Latency, I'd research if the RAM is dual-rank or not.

    I found Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 3600MHz C18 to be very good. I can OC to 3733MHZ or can run at CL16, and they're also dual-rank.
    Corsair LPX on the other hand not so great, at least the ones I've got, and they're single rank, some people said it may depend on revision.

    A good summary article on it here: https://www.hardwaretimes.com/single...one-is-better/
    I think mine is single rank tbh - but it's bdie Trident Z 3600 CL16-16-16-36 and running well. You can't get this stuff at the moment from what I've seen at that timing anymore. I'm not sure SR vs DR makes that much difference, when I got it articles were saying get SR over DR. Not sure why/if that advice has now changed. All things considered get the best RAM you can and stuff whether it's SR or DR tbh.

    Corsair RAM is always a lottery from what I've read they aren't very forthcoming/consistent about what RAM chips they use at any given point. Mixing and matching sets is something of a lottery as a result.

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    Remember not to confuse rank with the number of RAM modules you're installing. It's different to dual channel configuration etc. (not saying you were just a general comment)

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    Is the stock situation for a decent pair of RAM dire at the moment? Can't seem to find what I need for a price that isn't ridiculous

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    I was going to post a new thread but this seems a suitable place to ask...

    I am currently running a R5 3600 with 4.25 all core and memory at CL14 3600 which is actually CL14 3200 GSkill FlareX Samsung B die. The memory allows the bus speed to go to 1800 which helps.

    I am wondering if it is worth to try and overclock the CL14 3200 mem to around CL15-16 3800 somehow? The timings from the Ryzen memory tool for my mem at 3800 are bad, CL16 I believe, so I dunno.

    Thanks!

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    Im going to run a 5600x, is 3200mhz ram good enough? Do I need to look at latency? I was told its not much of an issue with ryzen

    Sort of depends on what your usage is like, if you favour latency or throughput (working with big data sets), if it's latency though you can use a RAM latency calculator, like this one, to workout the absolute latency.

    3600 CL14 would be 7.77ns
    3800 CL15 would be 7.89ns
    3800 CL16 would be 8.42ns

    You don't need to use an online calculator but i can't remember the maths.

    It being an issue sort of depends on how much it's going to cost, ideally you want something like 3600Mhz with the lowest CL you can find, but if that costs twice as much as 3200Mhz with looser timings (CL16-18) then the money would probably be best spent elsewhere, like on a better GPU.

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    I generally aim for latency <9.5ns but that is just because that's what my old system had so anything less than that should mean I don't notice a difference. 3200CL14 and 3600CL16 both achieve <9ns

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    The Crucial 3600MHZ kits with E-die are 3600C16,but my Adata 3600MHZ kit with Hynix CJR which is 3600C18,tuned to almost the same timings as the E-die kit. Hynix CJR does tend to be in cheaper kits but doesn't seem too bad IMHO.
