I want 32 GB and willing to spend 300$ for that 32 GB (4x8GB preferable because of T-topology of my mobo).
I'm struggling to figure out which RAM to go with, some 3600 MHz with CL16 picked my interest but the "chipset" block is empty on the list, so not sure whether i should worry about that.
G.skill F4-3600C16Q-32GTZ is B-die, however Newegg seems to be out of stock on all the variants/colors of it.

.
1) Hmmm... Intel's official website says Intel ME drivers version 1909.12.0.1236 (3/26/2019) are the latest for the Z390 chipset ( https://downloadcenter.intel.com/pro...l-Z390-Chipset ). Those newer versions above are not for Z390 according to Intel's website...

2) Should we download/install the Serial IO Driver? I've never had to install a Serial I/O driver, or even heard of one, in my life and I've been building PCs for 15 years and have used lots of low, mid, & high-end motherboards (MSI XPower, ASUS ROG Maximus, ASUS ROG Rampage, ASRock X99X Killer, etc.). Kind of confused......

3) Why is there an ME Firmware download? I thought ME firmware is auto-included in BIOS updates?

4) The Intel INF chipset drivers version 10.1.18 says it's for Win 10 only while 10.1.17 says also for Win 8.1 (& 10). Is this just Intel not "officially" labeling the brand new stuff as Win 8.1 anymore even though they're truly just as compatible as older versions or should Win 8.1 users actually not go beyond 10.1.17?

5) Why does Intel's INF page not list 9th gen Intel processors. It only says up to 8? 9th gen has been out for a year...So confused.

6) Why is the Realtek ALC1220 not listed in the Realtek download's section? Where can I find Realtek's official ALC1220 audio drivers without resorting to 3rd-part websites?


I just just got a Z390 Aorus Pro & Z390 Aorus Ultra (2 PCs) and am trying to figure out exactly what versions of software to download due to using Win 8.1 64-bit, not to mention not always trusting motherboard manufacturer websites when it comes to the latest versions of software. It's a little difficult and vague trying to find what's for what. I would really appreciate some help and information......It's getting a little frustrating. 3.5 hours so far researching & searching driver versions for a new build...Kind of ridiculous actually...

With $300 to spend I would buy a kit that is known samsung B-die. 3200mhz CL 14 kit would give you the really tight timings at 3600mhz and fit your budget.

The qvl list is not great. I have ran 4 kits that are not listed without issues. They don't add any new kits that came out after the mobo release.

Name Change Update

So I have kit of XPG SPECTRIX D80 3600 17,18,18 running in my Ryzen rig @ 3533 15,15,15,32 b-die kit, so I added my new kit of Team group dark pro 3200 14,14,14,31 to it and boom booted fine 1.43v, Ran benchmarks and
memtest everything is good, then I took out the adata kit and added it to my Intel rig, booted fine @ 3900 cas 16 with my old Dark pro 3200 b-die kit. Ran more benches and such, took out adata kit and added new kit of Dark pro
and boom running fine at 3900mhz cas 17 1.44v, vccio 1.24 and agent 1.25 just making sure ram works.
.
Going to try to lower cas and tighten things up now.. Weird **** its working now.. Save a profile and see if I can lower voltage a smudge. Who would of thought the 2700x would of been easier to get ram working.
lol.

Here is the ASRock configurator.


I will be honest with you though. I'm not great at ram overclocking. I copied these secondarys from a redditor with the same kit.

It was 800% hci memtest stable. No crashes or issues during gaming at all so far.

Ram with xmp 3600mhz/3800mhz will run on that board in 2 or 4 dimms.

You won't have any issues with that.


Frequency is not everything. My 4000mhz CL 19 kit performs better at my 3800mhz settings.

If you want the best timings then buy B-die.

The kit I have was only $89 for b die at 4000mhz. I purchased it knowing it was bdie and I planned to run at 3800mhz with tighten timings.

If you want the best value ram that can do 3600mhz, you should buy balistix sport Micron E-die.
