Difference between G.SKILL Trident Z Neo/G.SKILL Trident Z

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I build a pc with an AMD 3800x + asus rog strix x570-f gaming + dual channel kit  2x8gb G.SKILL Trident Z  CL 16-19-19-39 ( non NEO ),  i update the BIOS but i have to putt manually the memory frequency in 3600MHZ because it only shows 2133 ( it's normal or maybe it's  because it's not de NEO version ) another problem i have is the Trident Z Lighting Control  ( light control of the rams is not working at all ) it's normal ? Someone had the same problem?


thanks for all help given ;)

money, the small differences latency could add up when comparing the worst to the best, but gskill is already pretty high end. So just get whichever and never notice the difference.
All ram require you to increase the speed from 2133, the motherboard doesn't do it automatically.

Mostly marketing as Ryzen IMCs have come a loooooooong way from needing something specifically crafted for Ryzen, but it does show up on a lot of QVL which means boards will have better pre-set timings and dies usually have a lot more testing. Not memory expert though. Perhaps one will come along. I'd link the page where they explain it, but it's mostly marketing fluff.
