Is 3200mhz RAM safe to use with AMD Ryzen 5 3400g using the X.M.P Profile?

The setup I have is:
R5 3400G

16gigs Ram (single channel) 

Mobo is B450M

 

The RAM defaults to 2666mhz, I was just curious if it is safe or viable to use 3200mhz on R5 3400G.

Enable XMP worst case its unstable or will refuse to boot.

If it doesn't boot with xmp just do a CMOS reset

Not just safe, recommended.

Ryzen LOVES fast RAM. And the same goes for integrated GPUs, like the one in your 3400G.

 

Edit: Oh lord I just saw you're running single channel. That is not good. I recommend you go dual channel as soon as possible. Ryzen loses quite a bit of performance if its not being run in dual channel.

ik dual channel is better, but for the time being using single channel with x.m.p is fine right?

well, I was using X.M.P for like a year and it was working fine, up until recently it didn't boot, the pc had like a lot of stick dust accumulated because i live in a tropical area. I cleaned the system, I did the CMOS reset and changed the ram slot from 2 to 4. It booted fine after that.

 

So I'm not sure if the pc stopped booting cuz of the X.M.P or its just cuz of the wet sticky dust.

I would guess that the dust is a cause for concern. Make sure to clean the PC regularly to avoid components being worn down.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Yes, I am going to. I didn't know the dust in tropical areas can get this bad.
