I went a little overboard and purchased the following RAM for my 5900X and Gigabyte X570 Auros Master (rev 1.2):
Granted, it is neither on Gigabyte’s QVL nor G.Skill’s but I figured that might be because Ryzen 5000 wasn’t available at the time I purchased it.
I wasn’t able to hit 4000MHz but I didn’t mind, I thought I would go with 3800MHz and tight timings. I also quickly tried the DRAM calculator to see the “recommended” settings (It says 3600MHz because I wanted to get 3600 running before I would try 3800).
But…my RAM turned out to be awful. The best I can do is 3200 with CL16 (didn’t test tighter timings yet). I can’t even boot with 3400 and 1.4V…
Thus, I will return the sticks and get new ones. Any recommendations?
I want/need 32GB RAM and would like good stats. I’m willing to pay roughly 300$.
