3600MHZ memory on b450 tomahawk and ryzen 3000?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, I am currently happy with my system(ryzen 3700x) , but some money has come along and im thinking in upgrading my current RAM (3200MHZ CL16) for a 3600MHz CL16, Im looking into the two models in the links below (both are in portuguese, but the model and name are the same as in english), but my main doubt is: will the b450 tomahawk (non max)+ 3700x run the 3600MHZ ram normally? In MSI`s website it says it only supports up to 3466MHZ (OC), but i think that is due to being a 1st and 2nd gen ryzen board with a BIOS update to 3rd gen, Gskill site says Neo Tridentz are for ryzen 3000 on x570 boards.

 

And if yes, it will work normally, which of them both do i go for???? Crucial Ballistx are cheaper, but since ddr3 i only have experience with G.skill`s memory

 

Thanks!

Yeah, thats what it says on MSI`s website, but as i said in the original post, maybe something due to 1st and 2nd gen ryzens?

It would still be the same board. The updated version for zen 2 are the ‘max’ range.

 

i guess the non max remain at 3466. Could also be a B450 chipset thing (wild guess this by the way).

Well, after giving it a good search in other foruns and MSI`s website I was able to kind of have the solution myself. The memory controller nowadays is on the cpu, so that is gonna decide the memory speed limit, on Zen2 for the b450 tomahawk(non max) compatibility list you can find all the memorys that are compatible, Gskill`s are there, crucial ballistx isnt, i guess im gonna go with that
