Which kit specifically did you buy?

I bought this one.

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820232492

I have / had the same except two 16 GB kits of it - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820232491

I am still trying to decide what to pull the trigger on for a replacement. Here are my top choices ATM, pending someone posting that changes my mind. tongue.gif

1) F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR same as yours - 32GB RBG 16-16-16-36 $409.99
2) F4-3600C16D-16GTZR same stuff but just two sticks $224.99
3) F4-3600C16D-16GTZSW same specs as above but non-RGB $194.99
4) F4-4266C19D-16GTZSW super fast stuff $249.99

I'll bet 3) and 4) are the same exact memory. Notice 4) has was looser timings and 1.45v wheras 3) is cas 16 at 1.4v. Most probably the same kit and since I doubt Ryzen will ever do over 3600, might as well save money and get the 36000

^^^ This is GREAT news!

2nd news is a bit late i believe. 0079 onward is using AGESA 1.0.0.4a. Maybe some mobo vendors still havent posted the update to their bioses for some boards.

I think RX Vega x2's would be answer to Titan XP too smile.gif.

Are you sure it's not just a manufacturing defect?

Do the SPDs show up in the BIOS?

There are people complaining about the Aura software on the ROG forums.

Regarding the 4266 MHz option, I believe 4200 will be a breeze with the May update biggrin.gif

Ok, more seriously, I do sorta think the more expensive sticks get binned as higher performing stuff, but who knows? Worth 55 bucks to see what it can do? hmm.. Objectively from a system performance gain I doubt it. From a have fun and find out perspective? Maybe....

As I posted earlier, "I do wish Asus / G.Skill would get together for a fix if it really is the RGB Aura software that is causing SPD corruption. I suspect it it is, but have not seen a definitive proof yet, it is close to a "smoking gun"...

That others are seeing the same issue with SPD readings, I doubt that I just got a manufacturing defect on two kits.

You really need your Ram faster than your processor? tongue.gif

I think 3600Mhz is a good sweet spot for ram. For the time being, in terms of performance gains over 2133mhz, not price... As well DDR3/4 pricing right now is a little ridiculous compared to 6 months ago.
