Which RAM should I choose?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm building a new PC which will have:

  • Ryzen 7 3700x
  • ASUS Strix x570-F
  • RTX 2070 Super
  • 32GB RAM

The PC is for Gaming and Blender, Unity etc.


I can't decide on what ram to choose, I don't want to spend more than £200 on it though.

Currently I'm looking at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B082DGZJ9C/ref=ox_sc_act_title_5?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1

But I can't decide if I should get 3600mhz C18 or 3200mhz/3466mhz C16.

Basically I'm not sure how much the added CAS latency matters on the faster memory spec.


Thanks in advance.

Yeah, it looks like a good choice, 3600 CL18 should perform similarly or just slightly better than 3200 CL16 on average if I had to guess.

You actually don't need ram that fast, we saw it make more of a difference in performance with first gen Ryzen and make even less of a difference in second gen Ryzen so now with Third gen you will hardly see a difference between 2666 and 4000.

Check out 6:33 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_DcWgxMZ3k Hope this helps and saves you some money so stay with that kit but save 20 bucks and go 3000 MHz additionally the better CL of the 3000 kit at 15 will make more of a difference than then higher Clock Speed of the 3600 with a CL of 18
