No synthetic test I ran exhibited a difference. Time Spy, Firestrike, Heaven and Valley all ran within margin of error of my previous scores.

It seemed/seems like a fantastic waste of money to spend $200 on RAM in order to gain no noticeable difference in games and no measurable difference in benchmarks.
Maybe with a 144hz monitor where the RAM is the difference between 130fps and 144fps, then I can see that being useful - though $200 seems like a steep price to pay for such small gains.

If you play a game that is not running how you'd like and the faster ram makes it run how you like, then that could easily add up to being justification for the ram. For my uses it was not worthwhile.

Is this using crossfire fury X's? Cos Mindblank tech had review stating gains were seen on CPU bound titles on high end GPU's or was it hardware unboxed

Can anyone decipher what musimus is trying to say lol?

And ya i play at 1440p, gsync. Everything is butter smooth except one game, star wars the old republic. Its not that it isnt smooth exactly, its that when you pan the camera around it does not look like a frame synced experience should, its definitely the engine they are using. If not panning camera fast trying to look for it, you wont see it.

Its not that im unhappy with my system i love it, i just figured 2 months after release these ram issues would be fixed is all. I will wait til the end of may to come to any conclusions about ram compatibility, if by then my ram is still at 2400....that new 6 core intel i5 is looking mighty tempting.

Why buy expensive ram, if tou can buy 2 samsung's M378A1K43CB2 for like 60x2 bucks and it will work on 3200?

If you buy hardware based on price/performance ratios on this forum you are looked down upon. It is the weirdest experience ive ever had on the internet hands down lol.

Ohh really?

Last tiume I checked, no one in here told me I am stupid for running these with Ryzen.

Talk if you have proven something.

Would I have felt bad having a lower spec RAM in above context no way. Did I pay full whack for Trident Z 3200MHz C14 2x 8GB, no way. Gaming again @ 1440P I'm seeing no real benefit either.

I'm glad (or sad?) I'm not the only one with these findings. But on the other hand, I kinda wish it was something wrong I did so that I could fix it and make it faster tongue.gif
Oh well. It is what it is.

Yeah this is possible and I've seen reviews indicating a similar thing. My point is largely that I am never going to notice on my 75Hz monitor if my games are running at 120FPS or 140FPS.
At the point where you're playing a high speed game at 144Hz and you're streaming, then sure, that fast ram might be worth it. For my workload and I'm guessing a sizeable quantity of people, I don't think it's going to be a good bang for the buck. I really wish it would stop getting so hyped up.

Holy hell 4 pages about ram...

Anyway.

Is f3 the only bios for gaming k7 or are there betas floating around?

I'm not trying to be rude. I acknowledge that you tend to know what you're talking about when overclocking. That said, as far as I can tell scotty is just asking for suggestions and you're just telling him you're better than him. I'm not sure where this is going or how it is useful...

Musimus....i have a killer, thats a gigabyte board. But you are missing the point, not everyone has disposable income like you and does this as a hobby, for some people 100 bucks is a big deal and 3200 tridents make no sense in a price/performance perspective. That 100 dollars could have taken me almost to a 1070 from a 1060.

Musimus if you truly want to prove im an idiot and am doing something wrong you do this:

Buy these exact parts:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231941

If you can get it to post over 2400 you are the man, and i am the village idiot.

Believe me, we're sooo past trying to help him.

Then accept your crappy board, RAM, and your skills as they rightly are.
