Default Ryzen, motherboards and the question of memory speeds - 06-28-2017, 13:43 | posts: 899 | Location: South Africa

Hi all

I'm planning on upgrading in two months or so, aiming at the R5 1600, but I have some questions:

Should I get CL14 3200Mhz DDR4 or go for higher clocked CL16? Will Ryzen ever reach OC speeds above 3200MHz without being a memory OC Guru or has it reached a plateau? Will there be a noticeable performance difference between CL14 and CL16 3200MHz DIMMs on Ryzen?

With regards to motherboards - what is the main difference between B350 and X370?
Should I stick to a board that supports U.2 or is M.2 fine? I'm planning on getting a Samsung Evo 960.
I see some boards have two M.2 slots - would they have the same amount of lanes per slot or would they split the lanes in comparison to a board with only one M.2 slot?

I'm guessing Threadripper would not be comparable in price to the R5 1600 - probably more "enthusiast" pricing?

Thanks
