Is the ram compatible??

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello Ltt,
I need some help.
I have a pc which is about 2 years old now and I have planned a series of upgrades this year. My specs are as follows :
OS:Windows 10 64 bit
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 ( no oc)
GPU: XFX R9 270X ,I had a Sapphire Rx 570 nitro that died a few months ago and had to use my older GPU for the time being.
Mobo: Gigabyte AB 350 Gaming 3
Ram: 8gb x 1KingstonHyperx2400mhz(hx424c15fb2/8)
 PSU: Corsair vs650
1tb WD hdd  and a A DATA 240gb ssd is installed.

I was thinking of bumping up my ram to 16 gigs from 8 gb  but Amazon is asking too much for another stick . I was searching for prices online and another website has this 16gb 3000mhz ram kit for a little more money : https://www.primeabgb.com/online-price-reviews-india/adata-xpg-gammix-d30-16gb-2x8gb-3000-mhz-ddr4-memory-ax4u300038g16-db30/
I wanted to know if there is a way to find out wether this ram kit is compatible with my setup .I have been looking online and the gigabyte website states that my Mobo supports upto 3200mhz ram that was fine but it also states that my Mobo doesn't support 3000mhz instead it supports 2933mhz ram what should I do ??. Should I invest in another 2400mhz stick of the same type or go for the 16gb 3000mhz kit?? I don't have a lot of money and live in a rural area so shipping take some time  I can't afford mistakes when buying PC parts Please help.

I would go for the 3200mhz as the AMD CPU'S are quite sensitive in RAM compatibility

Bios updates might have increased usable ram speed.  If you buy 3200 and it doesn’t work you might be able to turn it down to 2933 and lower the cas to get some of the speed back.  I think that’s how it works anyway.  

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Did you only look at Amazon for the Kingston memory (DDR4 2400 Hyper X Fury 8gb CL15 1R, colour doesn't matter)?

The Adata-kit, is it compatible with your mainboard? The description mentions X299 and Intel XMP, it might not run as expected with your setup.
