Hello, I am new to the forums and have found this to be an incredible resource. I've pretty well decided on the CH6 because Asus seems to be supporting it well, and it's a good board.
I am about to pull the trigger on a Ryzen 1700 build, but I am struggling with what RAM kit to use. My primary use is workstation / photo editing and I need at least 32GB, and would like to keep the upgrade path open to 64GB, but that isn't a deal breaker. I have couple of questions:
1) Are there any 32GB RAM kits, regardless of configuration, that will work out of the box at 3000-3200 Mhz with good timings on Ryzen 1700? I don't mind OC'ing, but it would be nice to plug & play.
2) Is there any speed advantage whatsoever to going 2X16 vs 4X8? I am guessing 2X16 is better to fully take advantage of dual channel, but maybe I don't understand that entirely.
More specifically, would this RAM kit run at advertised speeds in the CH6 with a Ryzen 1700? :
(never mind the ridiculous price - I'm in Canada)
Thanks in advance!!
