Non-Ryzen DRAM compatible?

Go to solution Solved by DeadnightWarrior,

I have a 16Gb G.Skill TridentZ rgb kit rated at 3200 MT, with Hynix A-Die chips: it works flawlessly with a Ryzen 5 2400G on a basic B350 motherboard.
Usually the TridentZ are of higher quality than, say, G.Skill's own Ripjaws.

Hey!

So I found out that only specific ram is "Ryzen compatible"... They all are about 200% of what normal dRam costs... Does that mean my DDR4 Trident Z 2x8GB CL15 3000Mhz RAM does not work when paired with a Ryzen Processor or does it just mean that it's not optimized?

 

Thanks in advance,

Elias

Chances are it will work, but there is a small chance it wont or wont work at the full speed the kit is rated for. Newer Ryzen CPUs the 2XXX series are much better at RAM compatibility compared to first gen.
