    I've got plenty of DDR3 if I was going down that route.

    There's many ways to square that circle:

    As I said before, your existing board should take a new CPU, so you could try it in stages with the CPU first. A 3000 or 5000 series CPU will have a much better memory controller.

    Might make it easier to sneak past the boss than all in one go.

    Well I'm flying back out to Saudi on Sunday so if I tell her before I go, by the time I get back she'll be so happy to see me she'll have forgotten

    If she sneaks a bottle of jack into your luggage and there are people waiting for you at customs then you know she took it badly.

    I am looking at downsizing to an iTX board (x570 Probably) which will only give me 2 slots and chucking a better CPU in there so would like the RAM suggestions to take that into mind.
    Re this point, im sorry you've had a bad experience with the Crucial above, but can I advise the "Crucial Ballistix BL2K16G32C16U4W 3200 MHz" (2x16Gb kit, specifically mine is in white).

    Only reason is that, especially if you go X570, these seem to be some of the few kits out there pretty much guaranteed to be dual rank, using the micron e die.

    From what I have researched, and this is why I got these sticks myself, there are small advantages to be had going for dual rank kits on ITX when you're limited to 2 sticks, especially on Ryzen.

    Unless you feel you need PCI-E 4.0,and like overclocking a lot,your current motherboard should do the trick.

    Re: RAM Dilemma

    Well I have an Aorus x570 iTX board in my server, so as long as I can get an iTX B450M board for that then I can simply swap the boards over and then sell the Steel Legend board to fund the iTX B450 board, then its just a case of finding a 5600 or better to replace the 1600AF with and hopefully just swap the x570 for a B450 board in the server without having to reinstall.

    Re: RAM Dilemma

    Don't you have 4 sticks of RAM? Wouldn't that be slightly problematic with a mini-ITX motherboard?

    But I do suspect your existing motherboard is fine - with a Ryzen 7 3700X and an Asus B450I mini-ITX motherboard,I get a dual ranked Hynix CJR 32GB kit to 3600C16 with some tuning.

    I do have 4 currently yes, but dropping 2 of them and moving to a newer smaller board is on the cards at some point also
