Pairing ryzen with ram?

Hi guys

My friend wanna build a pc and he choses to pair ryzen r5 2600 with corsair vengeance lpx 2400mhz. I told him to pair it with more clock speed like 3000-3200mhz because amd chips are hungry for ram speed. So just wanna hear something about that from u guys.. what do u think?

Sounds correct, 3000Mhz would outperform the 2400Mhz. The RAM frequency would also depend on what your motherboard caps it at though

Faster ram does indeed help. We know 3000-3200Mhz is the sweet spot when it comes down to price-performance.

That said, there is nothing holding you back from getting 2400Mhz, overclocking it and hoping it does 3000Mhz.

 

I personally went all cheapskate when i got my r5 1600 and got 1 stick of 8GB, 2400Mhz, thing runs at 2666 just fine and gave me a nice performance boost.

So, spending more on ram does help for ryzen cpu's and especially with prices going down, i would say it's a worthy investment, if prices are right.

If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

I have a B350 board so i can overclock everything basically. It's all unlocked.

CPU, ram, iGPU (if i would have one) can be overclocked if you have a motherboard and CPU that supports it (which any B350-B450-X370-X470 board does)

 

If you have an athlon or an A320 board, you can't OC the ram because it's locked in that case.

 

But, that was my result, overclocking is never guaranteed, it's possible you buy a 2400Mhz stick that runs at 3000Mhz fine, but you can also get one that doesn't go faster than 2400Mhz at all.

Right now I have a 1700x and the G.Skill TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin 3600MHz ram kit. I would recommend the fastest ram kit that you can find.
