New to AMD - Need advice on RAM and X370 Mobo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello OC Community,

Over the years, I've always received great advice from the OC community and now I seek it again!

For the longest time (probably the last 15 years) I have only used Intel CPUs. My PC I built back in 2012 is starting to die, so I am due for an upgrade and want to try the AMD.

I just purchased the Ryzen 7 1800X, Asrock Fatal1ty X370 K4, and the G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB DDR 4 3200 RAM kit. However, while comparing mobos at Microcenter and reading reviews online, I somehow missed that this Mobo only supports up to DDR 4 2667!

Is there an update for the Asrock Fatal1ty X370 K4 to support DDR 4 3200 or do I need to purchase a new mobo? If I need to purchase a new mobo, which one to you recommend for DDR 4 3200?

Thanks in advance!

I just checked and it says "supports DDR4 2933+ (OC)".

There is hope here that the "+" means it can do more. A big Bios update that will be dealing with RAM issues is coming out in May for all RyZen mobos. Maybe that will improve your situation. Keep an eye out for it.

They update their bios quite regularly so like he said, keep an eye open for updates.
But I don't think you would gain much more from going all the way to 3000+, plenty of articles show minimal performance boost. rolleyes.gif

Return it, get a ROG CH6 if you want to overclock / run fast memory.
