Which RAM I should choose?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone,

I have a little problem in choosing the right RAM for my pc. I'm not planning to buy it tomorrow. I'm waiting at least for the RTX 30xx series. But I'm trying to understand which is the best hardware to choose among the others.
First Thing First:

I'm planning to have a Ryzen 9 3900X

GPU: RTX 2080 Super (or the RTX 3080 if they announce everything and it will be buyable before the end of the year).

Planning on 32gb of RAM, 3600 mhz.


But I don't know which I should choose.

I'd use (the pc) for gaming, streaming, podcasting, and other projects I have in mind.


Many have adviced me on Crucial Ballistix 3600 Mhz, because of the better latency, but I've seen only the G.Skills Trident Z Neo (3600 MHz), that is said are better on the AMD CPU.

Can you help me understand how to choose the best RAM? 😥
Propose me even different type of RAM.

If you don't want to spend a whole lot of money, just enable the XMP profile and leave it, look for a 3600MHz CL16 (either 16-19-19-39 or 16-18-18-38) that you can find in your motherboard's memory QVL list.

If you plan on doing some memory overclocking, you can go for a Samsung B-die kit, either 3200MHz 14-14-14-34 or 3600MHz 16-16-16-36. Or you can buy a B-die kit and just enable XMP as well, make no mistake.
