    Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    Any Ryzen 2600, 2700, or 2700x owners willing to share their RAM recommendations. Ideally a 32GB dual channel kit (16GBx2).

    PS Bonus points if Scan stock it

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    Regarding RAM,Scan is not a great choice for Ryzen compatible RAM as they stock Corsair mostly,which can be more of a lottery with regards to the chips used. What you ideally want to aim for is Samsung B-die containing kits. Corsair Vengeance kits can be Micron,Hynix or Samsung chips,and ideally you would want Samsung B-die,followed by Micron chips. AFAIK,Hynix is the worst type for compatibility,ie,its going to be more BIOS dependent on whether these can work properly. Also single ranked RAM is preferable to dual ranked RAM.

    I started a thread with some links to help people find the relevant kits:

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    Thanks for that, appreciated. That chart/RAM finder thingy is really cool.

    I'm ideally looking for a 32GB kit 2x16GB. And a recommendation from someone who is running it on one of the Ryzen 7s yes I know. That's too much, you're wasting your money etc etc I have a RAM fetish.

    PS I'm trying to answer the administrator who I was talking to here https://forums.hexus.net/hexus-sugge...ml#post3997721 but it won't let me post. Anyone know why?

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    As Cat pointed out Samsung B-die is an ideal choice, having said that what motherboard is it going in? Most manufactures publish QVL's (qualified vendor lists) for memory and while most memory works with most boards QVL's are what the manufacture has actually tested and probably coded the timings for into the BIOS so take out a lot of the guesswork.

    I've looked at the approved list but there is nothing above 16GB. I'm editing & running VMs so I'm looking to get a dual channel 32GB kit (2x16)

    Approved memory lists for this board here

    Slightly Off-topic but if you plan to OC that memory then you should try Ryzen DRAM Calculator.

    Re: Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    I have been reading a little bit on it recently and had thought with 2000 series compatibility was a lot less of an issue, but to easily get the most out of the hardware you need to look for for single ranked modules and to avoid populating all slots.

    This is not at all off topic and a good call. I downloaded it quite a while ago now. I just wish it could program the BIOS direct
    which would be fine if Hex wasn't actually an offset of itself

    Worth checking the QVL list on your motherboard manufacturer - I ran into a few issues trying to run 64gb at 3200mhz.

    I think they can not coded the timers in the BIOS

    tools are available to manufacturers to change BIOS values. and you can do
    that

    Ryzen owners RAM recommendations

    Hello First time posting

    I live in UK and my new Aero 15.6" Gigabyte AERO 15-XA, 4K UHD, AMOLED, i7 9750H, 16GB DDR4, 512GB NVMe SSD, 8GB GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q is coming today. If I want it during the first 14 days during which you have the right to return it even if there is no fault to it, etc, for sure I would like to upgrade only the ram to 32gb no repasting, etc and add a second 1tb SSD without voiding the warranty, and also looking for compatible recommendations for it.

    I saw a list on other threads, and I was wondering if I should just follow it, or you have any more advice or recommendations on it for this new model.

    Thanks

    How did you find the Neo Ram on your build?
