Is this ram compatible with 3950x/Zen 3?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm aware that Zen 3 isn't out yet, but I'm assuming that high end RAM compatible with 3950x will also work with the Zen 3 equivalent.

If this RAM isn't compatible, is this RAM?

Motherboard is X570 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme

Both will probably work fine. 

 

Tho both are rather underwealming compared to what you get for the price. 

 

Edit: 3950x will require some manual tuning with the 4000mhz kit tho. As IF doesnt go that high.

That's hella steep of a price, I would look at some viper patriot samsung b die for 1/3 of that price. 

 

I got some running at 3733 cl15 at 1.45v gear down off I could probably manage cl14 around 1.50v or less v.

So question regarding that, will the PC boot or will I have issues and need to tweak in bios before hand? My intent is to watercool this system and it'll be my first overclocking experience but I want to get it up and running first. I was hoping the 4000mhz could be underclocked to tighten timings significantly OR that zen 3 will allow for higher IF clock speeds. win/win. Basically I want to tinker with it as I really enjoy that but I'm trying to secure parts first

 

I know there are better kits for the money but I've selected the dominator for a few other reasons.

I have no complains with my Viper Patriot 4400mhz. I know with this kit I am set till ddr5 comes out and tbh this is the best kit I ever had. Not sure if I got lucky or what.

Are you on a ryzen build? How did you manually set the timings for optimal performance?

For tinkering purposes the certainly are a whole lot more interesting kits.

The RGB?

 

Because i would suggest looking at some other offerings. 

 

Edit: also yes, its likely gonna boot fine.

Yeah 3700x on a x570 tuf. You have to set the speed to let's say 3600 the the fclk 1/2 of that so 1800mh. Then you use ryzen calculator and copy the timings. I do 5 at the time see if it's boots then when everything is fine I try to tighten the timings see if I could squeeze some more out of it.

I'm sure there are relatively straight forward guides on that. Do you have any you followed?

Cool, thank you.

 

Aesthetics, I like Corsair, in some ways this is a build 20 years in the making and I wanted a dominator kit 20 years ago. If I wanted pure efficiency and performance I'd look at getting a Viper kit most likely. All Corsair QL fans, Corsair dominator, and until the custom loop is planned out a Corsair AIO. Corsair keyboard and mouse too. At this point, the memory is selected, I'm just trying to see what's the best kit in this lineup I can get and start in the right direction of maximizing that.

 

 

The CPU is a placeholder for Zen 3 but it's POSSIBLE I end up going 3950x

PNY is a placeholder card as well, just trying to grab 3090
