AMD Certified

Has AMD fixed the issue where RAM configurations are not configured correctly? Do we still need to manually tell it what is installed, or still buy AMD certified RAM to avoid the issue?

And most gen 2 chips have a better memory controller on board, so just get a good ram kit, and you'll be fine

Sounds good! Thank you!

Not necessarily an AMD issue but a Memory Issue.


But yes, its fixed, after a couple of BIOS Updates, if you didn't get the worst bunch of the Memory...

That's good to know. I haven't purchased my RAM yet. I just got back into it after over 13 years in the Navy; and, I'm just trying to quickly catch up on the latest information. I heard this had been an issue, but I'm glad it's fixed now.

i just helped with multiple ryzen builds on black friday, 4 builds total 

 

2 of them ran into minor problems (won't go past 2933, soc already at 1.2v) that was on 32gb b-die ram and b450 boards.

 

1 of them won't overclock past 3200 at all (low end x470)

 

the last one worked up to 4000 (taichi)

 

So it is still quite picky compared to intel, i wouldn't say the problems are gone. Be ready to manually enter the timings and voltages. Motherboard matters alot. If you are going all out, i'd recommend the taichi or the hero only.

My latest build on an MSI Gaming Pro Carbon X360, with a 1700x, the memory isn't stable past 3000.  So, take from that what you will.

Thank you for that information. I already have a ROG Crosshair VII Hero and a Ryzen 7 2700 X. The only things I've been stuck on is RAM, because of that issue; and, I've been trying to decide how I want to approach this discrete graphics card issue, with Nvidia gouging the crap out of its customers right now. I'm wondering if they're going to be forced to drop some prices after all of these issues they've been having lately.

the pricing on 2080 and below is basically normalized, i've seen 2080s for 700regularly (bad bins but still, it's better than most 1080 ti), there's decent value for each price point assuming you are buying new. From RX 570 at 140, 580 at 180 (with free upcoming games, then vega 56 for 300, from there on it's all nvidia with the 1070 ti 2070 2080 2080 ti.

If you cheap out too much on your Board and don't read up on Memory Speeds of the Boards, that might happen.

And you also have to keep in mind that the Memory is optimized/made mostly for Intel.

Also why didn't you mention the CPU??

 

With Quick Tests of my Patriot DDR4-3200 (was the cheapest 3200 available) in both the MSI B450I and ASUS X370F-Strix I have no issues at 3200 with the 1700x in the ASUS nor the 2400G in the MSI.

 

In General, 400 series Boards are better than 300...
