Can't decide between two RAM options for Ryzen 5800x

Go to solution Solved by Skiiwee29,

2x16 is always the better choice as its less strain on the IMC. 

Should I go for:
Kingston FURY Beast DDR4 3000 MHz CL15 32 GB
or
Kingston FURY Renegade DDR4 3600 MHz CL16 32 GB

 

One can populate all 4 slots, but the other one is higher MHz. I'm very unlikely to add more ram in the long run, and more likely to just upgrade in few years.

no idea what to put here

Got it, thanks. I'll try to snag them up, if they're still for sale tomorrow.

*Correction, the first option is 3200MHz

You can edit your post if you want to.

 

But nevertheless i go with @Skiiwee29advice on this. 2x16 is just less strain on the memory controller and the RAM's VRM.

I would stay away from Kingston,with them you can't know what ICs you will get.

But with Crucial you can get DIMMs with Micron Rev E ICs for cheap (Just make sure to do some research before buying that the model you are buying has them).

Check your motherboard QVL, if you can populate all 4 slots with the 3600 kit - go for it.

 

I went for 4000 CL 18 Micron kit, entirely satisfied with it.

That’s not always true, if it’s a dual rank kit not much difference from running 4x8. Dual rank is harder to push.
