  1. Soooo I can still use a kit that is not listed there but there its not a guarantee? Now I am kinda scared and regretting that I bought a R5 1st gen
  2. Is RAM still an issue in Ryzen 1st gen? I currently have a Ryzen 5 1400 and was choosing between an MSI B450 PRO-M2 MAX and an MSI B350 Tomahawk and was not sure what ram to pair it with. I do have a single 4gb stick of Kingston HyperX (HX426C15FB/4) CL15 2666 MHz which both motherboards support as stated in MSI's RAM Support List for 1st gen. With an additional budget I was able to raise my budget to around $200 which I guess opens an opportunity to buy a 16GB or 8GB RAM kit. i am not so sure what to buy though. I was basing the compatibility of the RAM i can find on the list provided by MSI on their website and most of em are not I guess "not compatible" since it was not in their list.
  3. Sadly I was born in the Philippines where many people are so bad pricing computer parts ? the gap between a 1400 and a 1600 is $30 or around PHP 1600
  4. If I do continue to buy the 1400, the seller would give me a discount on his 4GB stick which is similar to what I currently have now to utilize dual channel memory. The motherboard does support the RAM however, i am still uncertain if memory is still an issue with 1st gen ryzen.
  5. After months of saving and working, I finally got most the parts I need to build my PC. A Gigabyte GA-AB350M-HD3 Motherboard, a 600W PSU, a PALIT GeForce GTX 1050Ti, and 4GB of Kingston 2666MHZ DDR4. Last thing I need is a processor and was thinking to settle for a second hand Ryzen 5 1400 for $65. This is my first Ryzen desktop build and I have read Ryzen 1st gen had lots of memory compatibility issues. Do these issues still persist? The motherboard is also second hand and the seller said he had used a Ryzen 3 2200G on it which I guess means that he had already updated the BIOS.
  6. Thanks for the reply everyone, I will try to get this module installed on Monday I hope it works smoothly. Fingers crossed.
  7. Won't it be a problem? Blue screens etc? Its my first time using an AMD Ryzen System so i am unsure what to do
  8. I recently got this laptop and decided to upgrade it to 8GB from 4GB because I dont have the money to afford a new 16GB kit. I was stupid though for not using the right tools in checking my existing DIMM. Task manager displayed my RAM as 2400 MHz which was odd because last time I checked the spec sheet of this laptop config, it listed 2666 MHz and did not have the time to double check since I was busy at work. I bought another 2400 4GB DDR4 Stick online when things at work were not that busy only to find out that CPU-Z lists my existing RAM as 2666 MHz . Will this actually work? I know in my previous Core i5-6200U laptop with mismatched memory would still work but this is an AMD Ryzen 5-3550H powered laptop.
