Memory for X399-A and 2950X

 Share

I am considering buying a Threadripper 2950X with Asus X399-A motherboard.

Most of my workload would be CAD/GIS, Adobe Suite, point clouds and some video editing

 

Which memory kit would you choose? I'm interested in max speed but without having big compatibility issues.

 

I have one of this two sets in mind but I do not now if with the first I would have compatibility issues?

 

1) G.SKill Ripjaws 64GB Red V 64GB Kit DDR4-3400 CL16 ( F4-3400C16Q-64GVR )

2) G.SKill Flare X 64GB Kit DDR4-2400 CL15 (F4-2400C15Q-64GFX)

 

Would you choose some other 4x16GB stick KIT?

You want the fastest quad channel kit you can find for the lowest price

 

are you sure you need 64GBs? You'd have to be working on an insane model to fill that up wouldn't you?

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Do not care about RGB.

 

Searching the QVL for the MBO I don't see any support for Samsung Bdye chips.

I can get the 3400 cheaper then the 3000 so that why I choose G.SKill Ripjaws 64GB Red V 64GB Kit DDR4-3400 CL16 ( F4-3400C16Q-64GVR )

 

 

Would you recommend the G.SKill Ripjaws V 64GB Black Kit DDR4-3000 CL14 (F4-3000C14Q-64GVK) or the 3400? (both are Samsung B dye)

nah, b dye is something inside the ram, it's not a ram model, but a dye. if i remember right, the trident z uses them, not sure tho

 

ripjaws aren't that bad, it comes down to looks and the general use of the dyes, some ripjaws use lower quality hynix d or e dye

I guess but what's your storage situation? That's likely useful as well since you're very unlikely to ever fill up even 32GBs of RAM

Could buy some 970 pro or WD Black 2nd gen M.2s for 3K Read/Writes, as X399 has plenty of PCI-e lanes for that.

As long as it's 3000mhz or better, and quad channel it'll be fine, unless you're going to do crazy tuning/overclocking.

Might also just want a 1950X if it's a lot cheaper.

Storage solution would be 970 Pro

Doesn't really matter

 

there's pretty much either B-die and non B-die
 

You can also just buy 2-4 16GB kits and it won't make a difference so long as they're the same


There should be a list here, you'r e better off on an overclocking forum for that stuff
