    Hello.
    So after rocking for 7 years my Ivy Bridge old i5 3570 running it with my GTX 1070 with only up to 40% gpu usage in games with even lowest fps I order the
    Ryzen 7 3700X with MSI B450 Gaming Plus and pair it with GSkill Ripjaws V 32GB (2x16) 3200Mhz
    F4-3200C16D32GVK
    I check the support on the page and this memory is listed on support but with "GVR" number with is the same memory but with red cooling so it should work just fine.

    My question is that I dont fully understand the native memory support on CPU.
    Saw that Ryzen 2000 had native 2933mhz and lot of memory that was 3000mhz only work at the 2933,
    so that means that no mater what the native memory speed will be always supported?
    Ryzen 3000 is native 3200mhz so every supported memory stick that is 3200 will be detected in bios is guaratee to work in such speed?

    Will my memory work fine?

    EDIT: I still wait for parts to be delivered to me.

    the speed is supported natively, the timings are a different thing, but most likely 99% will work just fine.

    The QVL list is incomplete and they only test 1 item of each speed group and total memory size, there's different timings though in each of these groups provided by vendors that don't explicitly end up in the QVL list but should work too.

    With the new Ryzen CPU the memory is better supported than Intel memory.Will not get into that.Yes that memory will work and I had 16GB GVK version which worked fine with 2600X@3400Mhz overclocked.I am just some guy on the internet.Always buy from a place which gives you the opportunity to return if it does not work.

    Anyway My Ram kit Intel approved.Passed three hour stress test without any errors.I can go higher but it is good enough for me.

    Running
    Memory overclock-2100=4200Mhz at CL16 and great sub timings
    Fabric Overclock- 1900=3800Mhz overclock from 1800

    Msi X470 gaming Plus Motherboard + G.Skill Trident Z 16GB DDR4(F4-4000C18D-16GTZ) + AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

    Thank you guys, for responding to my question.
    I know that Ryzen likes high clocked memory and 3600Mhz would be sweet spot but unfortunitly price in my country for such memory is half of what I pay for the 3200Mhz.
    But from the results I see 3200Mhz will work just fine and get a little boost compared to people that install 2400Mhz or 2100Mhz, in their computers, lol
    @gerardfrauser you have neat config results. 4200Mhz with cl16 timings its amazing. Your sticks are stock CL18 right?

    The only thing that "might" be a potential issue is that 16gb DIMMs are dual rank and if the memory is Hynix( all Gskill C16 8gb DIMMs are Hynix not sure about 16gb). It's safe to assume it will work perhaps at rated speed but who knows about more than that.

    Edit:

    Also not using an X570 board could add to this likelihood.

    Edit again:


    Single are dual rank does not matter with the 3K chips.
