I am building a Threadripper 2990WX based workstation and i am going crazy , i dont know what RAM to choose.
I need 128GB of RAM for my build , at first i thought any RAM kit would be fine , but than i have been told only “AMD CERTIFIED” Kits are the go to for a threadripper build, than i heard any kit should be fine as long as it has “samsung bdie” , than i heard that only my motherboards QVL list memory is the way to go.
Im going crazy people , i need to get a (as much as possible) clear answer on what RAM kit i should buy.
Will any ram kit what so ever will do? will only “CERTIFIED” RAM for AMD do?
if it matters my motherboard is a X399 Gigabyte Aorus XTREME motherboard , i am planning to use 128GB on all 8 slots , so i want to know what ram to buy, if speed even matters , and if i can get any kit i want or anything specific? and will i even be able to run 8 DIMM’s at more than 2133MHZ?
to be honest the RAM part is the only thing keeping this build away from being done , so i really would love to get some answers on this one!
