    No tests with the amd 5000 series?

    yep too bad like everyone I think we are interest to see what 4000Mhz changes on the new Ryzen but it's ok we can wait ;)
    4000Mhz is only supported by a few good bin cpus if I understood right ?!

    anway what I wanted to say is that I've got several Corsair memory sticks but also 4 g.skill 3600Mhz and not only do the g.skill boot easier with cpu overclock, crash less in aida64 stress test but they systematically give me better results, if you don't care about corsair icue rgb definitely go with g.skill
    p.s. the g.skill rgb app doesn't drain much system ressources if you keep to simple colors or turn the rgb off, avoid complex rgb effects especially the "audio visualizer", it will make you lose a few fps and benchmark points for sure, also use 5% or more cpu depending on what your cpu is (a 8 cores or less will definitely feel it)

    Yep, I also would like to see it tested with intel 10x00 / Ryzen 5x00 and something faster than RTX2080Ti, any change to do that @Hilbert Hagedoorn mate :)?

    Intels read score way too low. Probably some secondary, like tWR or tCWL too loose, and tRAS

    Who would buy high speed memory that gives you like 3% extra fps at best, and then sacrifice resources with the rgb software?

    It would be great to see Ryzen 5000 tests @ 4000 Mhz 1:1 IF.

    5-10% performance increase, without RBG software

    Intel's score seems a little low, I have slightly better scores in Aida64 with my 4000@18CL

    This test was conducted by Chris, he does not have a Series 5000 proc at this time.

    "MSRP is ~ $ (8 GBx4, 4000MHz)"

    Missing price (page 1). Also, there are different fonts used.

    Just to conclude... its a waste of money... 3200 CL14 is the best option today!

    Been looking into memory today for my upcoming Ryzen 5000 build, which won't happen until 2021.

    I think i will settle with 2x8GB from G.Skill, 3600 MHz with 16-16-16-36 timings, expensive enough really. If things change between now and 2021 i can still adjust, but for gaming 16GB is still good enough.

    I looked into 4x kits, but man are they pricy.

    Idk what is the purpose of this kit, considering the price. Someone can buy 2x8 kit of Ripjaws 4266C16 for $140 these days.
    And can easily be tweaked to 4000C14.

    I don't want to tweak, i want XMP and go.

    And now i ran into the debate of 16-16-16-36 vs 16--19-19-39.

    Why can't ram choice be easy... :(
