Looking around for 3200GHz spec ECC unbuffered RAM for a new build and there doesn’t seem to be many options available.
I’ve located MTA18ASF4G72AZ-3G2B1 but that’s 32GB per stick which tbh means 64GB to benefit from dual channel see https://www.elara.ie/productdetail.aspx?productcode=ECE5668920 from a local retailer.
I’ve also come across ME25600-628K02-G from NEMIX https://www.newegg.com/p/1X5-003Z-01918?Description=unbuffered%20ECC&cm_re=unbuffered_ECC--9SIA7S6BUD5388--Product
Not familiar with NEMIX and reading https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/beware-of-nemix-ram.2583432/ isn’t helping my confidence about importing into Ireland (EU) and potentially having to ship back if there are any issues.
I’ve located the part number for a 16GB version of the Micro RAM available locally - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ML7p99/micron-16-gb-1-x-16-gb-ddr4-3200-memory-mta18adf2g72az-3g2e1
And of course as soon as I put together this post, I managed to enter the right part number into a local distributor - https://www.elara.ie/productdetail.aspx?manufacturer=CRUCIAL&mancode=MTA18ADF2G72AZ-3G2E1
Course that’s not available for about 2 weeks, so if anyone is aware of other part numbers from manufacturers that match my preferred specs I would be very grateful if you could share them.
The alternative I’m considering is whether it’s just better to try and purchase some memory that is known to overclock to the desired speed? I’m planning on a Ryzen 5 3600 (or better) coupled with an X570 board. I’m guessing if I need to go this route instead, will definitely want a better cooler for the CPU assuming it has some impact with multipliers. Though I’m guessing it might disable CPU boost speeds doing this unless the OC memory lines up with a particular clock speed?
Adding the product numbers found here to help anyone searching:
- M391A2K43DB1-CWE - Samsung
- MTA18ADF2G72AZ-3G2E1 - Micron
- KSM32ED8/16ME - Kingston
