Memory Recommendation


#1

Would G.Skill RipJaws V Black DIMM Kit 32GB, DDR4-3200, CL14-14-14-34 (F4-3200C14D-32GVK) be a good choice for Asrock X470 Taiche motherboard? I am fairly certain these are B die Samsung memory (I think I got that correct.).


#2

Those are B-die according to the HardwareLuxx forums,

I also see that the kit is listed in your motherboard’s memory QVL, so it should work.

Thank you for the reply. I didn’t see them in the QVL when I searched on F4-3200C14D-32GVK. What came the closest was this F4-3200C14D-32GTZR. I didn’t know these were the same. I wonder what those last few character stand for.

Any way these are the memory I’ll buy.


#4

The last few characters are the heatsink color I believe.


#5

Bingo, I see a pattern now.

K black
SK silver / black
KW black / white
R RGB

So 32GVK

32G = 32 GB
V = RipJaws V
TZ = Trident Z

It appears the Trident Z series has a redesign to allow higher OC possibilities than the RipJaws V.
