Building a Ryzen 3700x are G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory any good?

So, I’m getting ready to build my first AMD PC. the 3700x with an Asus Prime x470 Pro.

I have an ADATA 1TB - XPG SX8200 Pro M.2-2280 Solid State Drive on its way. YES!!!

Any thoughts on G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory?


Probably will be good, should be good, shouldn’t see an issue BUT wait for some testing as DDR4-3666 might offer a better bang for the buck.

Thanks. Other than the M.2, I haven’t ordered anything else yet. I’m locked into the Asus x470 since I have a Staples GC I can use.


The 3200 kit is only $129.99

I found on PCPARTSPICKER 3600 but it is CAS 19 while the 3200 is CAS 16? Anything to worry about?

The performance will probably be about the same… reason I say wait and look at testing is apparently DDR-3600 seems to be the sweet spot. Now if there is that much of a difference between 3200 and 3600 that should be determined in about a week.

Thank you. I am waiting. I most likely have to go with the Asus Prime x470 since that is all that is available at Staples and it will be close to free after my gc.

I got an excellent deal on the Adata m.2 after everything around $100 for 1tb.


Double check motherboards qvl memory support list.
i assume that those kits will work fine but still.

Havent seen anything but you’d think gskill to again capitalize that ryzen ram

@westech You might want to consider skipping Zen 2 if you can’t afford an X570 motherboard or get a Zen+ CPU and an X470 motherboard. The reason is an X470 motherboard BIOS will need to be upgraded before Zen 2 processor will work in that chipset. If you can find a way to upgrade the BIOS on an X470 motherboard without needing a processor you can disregard my advice.

Thanks, I realize my x470 will need Bios upgrade.

Depending when you buy it it may not… I thought I saw on one of the Computex videos from someone there will be something on the box or maybe even a slightly different SKU name for 470’s that are 3XXX ready.

This shows which motherboards can support 3000 with their given VRMs.

And what you choose? It will be interesting for me
