So, 16GB is starting to bite me a bit in few games, namely testing Star citizen where it really really wants more than whats avaliable and some stutters from resources being traded has been problematic.
Ideally even as a temp solution getting another 8gb stick in would be great, or filling out the slots to 32 would be awesome.
However since I built this back in early 2017, and back then getting 3200mhz+ compatible memory was rough, I ended up buying Gskill 3600mhz B-dies with Cas 16-16-16-36 timings ( https://www.gskill.com/product/165/1...35V16GB-(2x8GB
Unfortunately were very expensive, and buying more memory at that cost is just not possible right now.
So I'm wondering without dropping below 3200mhz or losing a boatload of performance what my best options are?
I'll likely be upgrading to the next Ryzen platform, so I don't want to totally gimp myself but my understanding at least that the newer Ryzen's aren't as performance linked to the Memory speed correct?
Any help in this matter would be awesome anyway, even if it ends up being a stopgap solution and tossing a single 8gb non-matching stick, I don't even have the case lights on anymore due to issues with watercooling loop going cloudy etc.
(If ends up being a decent idea I don't mind buying 32gb of new memory at lower performance, future proof in mind ofc whatever would prefer on 3000 series, I think I could still sell the B-die memory for a decent buck to cover for most of the cost of the 32gb)
(Or if I should just suffer and try to get more? since seeing that now memory overclocking/min/maxing for Ryzen is popular and can get some pretty decent gains in certain situations)
