    And the price?
    At my local stores 3200Mhz CL14 costs above €150 for a 8GB kit

    Nifty. That 14-15-15-35 2x8GB kit is gonna be expensive.

    DDR4-3600 with RGB equals at the very least DDR4-4000 without RGB.

    Don't care. I still like my rainbowtastic light show in my PC.

    That's some nice specs. AMD's finally getting some love from memory makers.

    Yup. I splurged on a set of G.SKILL Trident Z RGB memory a couple of years ago for my Threadripper system and still love it. :)

    Any chance we will see a review on a 400 serie chipset with high speed memory to see what it changes and if it works?

    Well, one thing is for sure.
    AMD had for an eternity some things glued on their name.
    AMD hot, AMD cheap, AMD processors are slow.
    Nowadays those tags are gone
    Cheap? Hot? Slow?
    Yeah, right.
    My bank accounts will hate me for the spending spree.
    Those timings...:rolleyes:
    Those RGB LEDs are adding more OC headroom for sure.:D

    It should theoretically make no difference. The IMC of the CPU makes the difference not the motherboard.

    They are still way cheaper than Intel. :) And of course they kept the better price/performance title with Zen2. :) Anyway, a $330 8/16 super fast CPU is a fantastic thing.

    hmmm i'm not really up to snuff on the current state of memory and zen 2, if i pick up a random g.skill rgb 4000mhz 32gb kit and pair it with a zen 2 / x570 board is it likely to work or do i still need to look for ryzen approved ram?

    Safe bet is to wait a little, meanwhile both motherboard and RAM manufacturers have updated their QVLs.

    Those specs are impressive I bet the price will be as well. The flarex kits I thought where very good but u pay for it got one kit running at 3333mhz on my 2400g.

    Definitely wait. Things are in flux, lots of info and opportunities incoming.

    You know whats disgusting? They already have this kit and its called F4-3600C15D-16GTZ

    https://www.gskill.com/en/product/f4-3600c15d-16gtz

    The price went up yesterday by 100% after the announcement.

    I got two of those kits 4x8gb shared between intel 8700k and ryzen 1700x and they can easily do these timings below and EVEN better with 2000 or 3000 series.

    My 1700x cannot go more than 3433 with these timings because of the support but on 2000/3000 or intel its np.

    crap is just RGB with more bullshit.


    But if you want bang for the buck that can do 3733 mhz and 14 timings buy these.

    I'm really out of the loop on parts these days. How much difference does running a high spec ram kit make in real world applications? Other than extreme overclocking, it seemed there was very little difference from running an average set of ram for any particular board's specs. Have things changed?

    Note: I no longer overclock anything. Not even my video card. :oops:

    As to RGB, I bought LED ram for a build back in 2006. I've never bothered since. It was a lot of extra money for a novelty. Not that I'm knocking anyone else doing it, I just know I'm not willing to pay extra for that.

    My pair of 2x8GB is extremely cheaper, 3200Mhz CAS 16. Since I have Z390 with an Intel CPU, I donwclocked the speed to 2667Mhz, got it 14,14,14,34, 1T and even lowered the voltage from 1,35V to, 1,3V. Everything works more than fine.

    You shouldn't have much issues doing that. Although, whether or not the XMP profile works no problem is another story. Also, anything above 3733 Mhz memory will cause the infinity fabric to operation at 2:1 instead of 1:1. Best bet is 3600 Mhz memory. Currently 3600 Cas 16 is good kit but this is exactly why that 3600 Neo stuff is coming because it is very ideal speed and timings. 3200 CAS 14 stuff still is quite good on Zen 2 as well. Best bet if you get the 4000 stuff is to use the Ryzen memory calculator and get best timing figured out for 3600-3733 speed.

    "extreme speed up to DDR4-3600 CL14 "
    I'm going to test my 2 year old 3600c15 kits on my incoming 3900x and Asrock X570 taichi.

    Ps: 3600mhz is not extreme speed in 2019 LOL

    I'm going to look into the 3200mhz 32GB kits with 16G x2. I bet the XMP works with even gen1 Ryzen. At Cas 14 3200Mhz is going to perform the same as 3600 at 16 cas. What I would pay more for is a CAS 16 3733mhz kit in 32G via 16G dims.
