Does Verizon still have issues with memory clock speeds?

Hey guys, after some time I'm finally getting a new system put together and I am looking at going with a ryzen 2600 CPU. Even fairly recently I've heard things about certain ryzen CPUs and certain memory speeds and I'm just wondering if there is still issues with high-speed memory or if it's worse to get low speed memory or exactly what's going on with all of that as of late.

 

Thanks

just make sure your memory is on the compatibility list for your motherboard and you'll be fine

Verizon? wtf?

 

Ryzen 2nd Gen has improved a lot on RAM compatibility and stability, but it is still capped around 3200Mhz, so don't get anything above that.

In my experience, memory support has gotten a lot better. You can get memory on the support list, but even a normal set will function just fine.

Just get memory at around 3000Mhz, with a CAS latency of 15 or 16 and you will be good with running memory at 2933Mhz. If you want to get higher clocked memory, you have to either get a board that specifically supports that or get memory with a very low latency.

 

For example, on my X370 board I had to tinker quite a bit to get it to run at 2933Mhz, while on a B450 machine I made a bit ago I just turned on XAMP and it was running at 2933Mhz immediately.
