3200mhz CL14 TridentZ on Ryzen 7?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Currently looking at replacing my Ripjaws V Hynix Die kit due to the low performance on my Ryzen 2700x system, the question then is this: How much does the QVL matter? I've found the "AMD" kit that IS QVL to my ROG STRIX X470-F, but at 2933MHz CL14 & not B-die (?) 

  • F4-2933C14D-32GTZRX

Then i'm looking at the confirmed B-Die 3200mhz kit 

  • F4-3200C14D-32GTZR

This is not on QVL for my Motherboard, i'm a little confused on which ones gives the highest possibility of reaching 3200mhz CL14 on Ryzen ( and also leaving 2 of my slots available for upgrade to total 64gb of capacity ) 

 

Any thoughts/Pointers?

When I had my Ryzen 1700 system with a C6H board, I bought the same exact kit of 3200CL14 RAM you're looking at. IIRC it wasn't on the QVL but I bought it anyway.

 

Have had no issues at all with getting the RAM set to the optimal frequency and timings as advertised. And with later BIOS revisions I was able to tighten down the timings and get a small bump in the frequency to about 3333Mhz with 14-13-14-30 timings, though I had to leave it at 2T, as 1T with the aforementioned specs would cause the system to not pass POST.

 

The Ryzen 2700X has a significantly superior memory controller to the 1700, so I have no doubt at all that you can get to 3200CL14 in your BIOS. Updating your BIOS might give better results due to later AGESA revisions making compatibility less of an issue.


New Build (The Compromise): CPU - i7 9700K @ 5.1Ghz Mobo - ASRock Z390 Taichi | RAM - 16GB G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 3200CL14 @ 3466 14-14-14-30 1T | GPU - ASUS Strix GTX 1080 TI | Cooler - Corsair h100i Pro | SSDs - 500 GB 960 EVO + 500 GB 850 EVO + 1TB MX300 | Case - Coolermaster H500 | PSUEVGA 850 P2 | Monitor - Dell S2716DGR 144hz 1440p | OSWindows 10 Pro. 

Peripherals - Corsair K70 Lux RGB | Corsair Scimitar RGB | Audio-technica ATH M50X + Antlion Modmic 5 |

CPU/GPU history: Athlon 6000+/HD4850 > i7 2600k/GTX 580, R9 390, R9 Fury > i7 7700K/R9 Fury, 1080TI > Ryzen 1700/1080TI > i7 9700K/1080TI.

Other tech: Surface Pro 4 (i5/128GB), Lenovo Ideapad Y510P w/ Kali, OnePlus 6T (8G/128G), PS4 Slim.

Ahh that sounds good, always running latest BIOS but this Ripjaws set wont go over 2400mhz CL16, it goes unstable & crashes randomly w/ found errors with Memtest, think i'll go for that TridentZ kit then, thanks for the reply!

Also it took me way too long to realise your avatar had already loaded...

I am running that exact kit on my Asrock X470-Board. It wasn't on the QVL for that either but runs perfectly on it. Only needed to set the preconfigured profile for the timings, no manual config needed.
