Which RAM to choose for 2700X & x470?

I'm thinking to buy my first PC based on AMD processor. I don't know a lot, but my investigation into a matter revealed that it is a tricky thing to choose a RAM for Ryzen 7 2700X and x470 motherboard. Below what I came up to now. Would highly appreciate any help, peculiar with RAM choice.

1) AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
2) MSI X470 GAMING PRO CARBON
3) MSI GeForce RTX 2080 GAMING X TRIO 8GB GDDR6
4) G.SKILL 32GB 3200MHz Trident Z RGB LED CL14 (2x16GB)

Any 3200C14 kit will be a good pick. However not sure if you have picked up the board and cpu yet but i would really give the X470 Taichi a look. It is an amazing board for overclocking and Mem support.

New Ryzen CPU's and the X570 boards are supposedly right around the corner. Have you considered just hanging on a little longer to see what they are going to deliver, or do you really need the PC right now?

Might be worth the wait if you are patient enough. Just something to consider.

Only difference is 10Gb nic. Otherwise they're the exact same. I have used the Normal Taichi in several builds for myself and others. no issues running 3400C14mem and 3 of the builds did 4.3ghz no problem on the 2700x.

Are you aware of the QVL for your memory and for your motherboard? The memory maker will list what motherboards they think each of their memory sticks are compatible with. The motherboard maker will list what memory sticks they think are compatible with their motherboards. I'd strongly recommend choosing memory where your chosen motherboard is on the memory maker's QVL. Besides increasing your odds of getting a match that works, you also increase your odds of good, long term warranty support by following their recommendations.

It's really that easy.

Yeah, just check the QVL and me find the speed you want. Intel is the same way but typically has better compatibility on the higher end.

Yeah, whichever board you decided to go for, pick the memory from QVL from motherboard vendor's website and you will be good to go. I learned that lesson the hard way lol.

Thank you, that is very helpful advice. I am aware of this kinda lists, but unfortunately, I haven't found this kind of lists for this MSI motherboard and G.SKILL RAM. Maybe you can provide me with a link to it?

Haven't thought about it. Do you know when they are going to roll out it to the market?
