is 2400mhz enough for a R5 1600?

Go to solution Solved by NelizMastr,

I'd get the same brand and type of memory for the best results and try to run the sticks at 2666MHz. That should be enough.

So I have a Ryzen 5 1600 clocked at 3.7ghz at 1.24v with average temps around 60 degrees on the stock cooler when gaming.

I'm trying to get the best out of this cpu without spending to much extra.

I currently have 1x8gb 2400mhz cl14 ram and am planning for an additional stick.

My question is if 2400mhz is enough speed? I only play games and sometimes I do some programming but I don't do anything memory intensive.

I have a msi gaming x rx 480 8gb and I was wondering if 2400mhz will get the max out of the GPU?

an additional identical stick is the best 4 buck here, usually recommend 3000+ for ryzen though.

2400 is OK, but it does cause a system bottleneck in terms of FPS in games. Ideally 3000-3200mhz is the sweet spot to unlock the full power of Ryzen.

That won't be a problem I have a framecap set for 75 fps on almost all of my games because I have a 75hz monitor. it's also 1440p so super high framerates are not what I'm expecting But I was more concerned about sudden framedrops or inconistencies but that should be fine then 

 

thank you guys
