Ryzen 5 3600 minimum RAM support?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hej!

I need to know the minimum RAM size for the R5 3600 if there is a limit.

The only information I can find are about how much ram it supports at maximum, but nothing about the minimum it needs to run.


Thanks in advance!

Regards,

baeni

4GB are generally the lowest capacity DIMMs you'll find, which thus is the minimum you RAM supported. But if you can find 2GB DIMMs or smaller they'll likely work too.

But that doesn't mean you should get 4GB or whatever, you need to get however is needed for your work on the computer. Generally 8GB or more is preferred.

I would guess it is 2133mhz.

The min RAM size? It depends on your operating system that you are trying to run on it, so it's really as little as you want but you are leaving performance on the table by not running dual channel memory and it not being clocked at a reasonable speed (3000mhz+) and considering you can get 16gb of RAM for $60 there isn't any reason not to really


@BlueScope819 so I can see your post

You can't get DDR4 less than 4GB, unless you find some special stuff shipped from China. So there's the minimum.

 

Windows is what really has a minimum, not hardware, you can't run your OS with too little ram.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Oh sorry. Ram size. Thought you meant speed. As Minibois said it is 4gb and maybe even 2gb.

@minibois @Tigerleon @BlueScope819 @Fasauceome Perfect, thanks y'all!


@BlueScope819 yeah I will buy a 2x8GB 3200mh/z kit in the future but I just need some temporary RAM for now. I will return it anyway so it doesn't need to be a good deal. I went with a single 8GB 2666 mh/z kit for 30€ now. As I said - Just for test purposes and not for actual usage.
