Default Best RAM for MSI X370

Hey guys,

New to DDR4 memory. Does anyone know if 2400Mhz is the highest I can go on this board? Says everything above 2400 is (OC)

Also what RAM would you recommend for a MSI X370?

Legend, thank you VN

Read that with Dual Channel support we can only run two DIMMS atm?

Do you think 2x16GB will be supported?

UPDATE: Looks like I can run two of these DIMMS only http://www.corsair.com/en-eu/vengean...2gx4m2a2666c16

my kit is actually a 8x8GB 64GB Gskill TridentZ 3200 C14

and its only on newegg.

I split the kit into 2 32gb kits, one for the kabylake system and one for the ryzen.

I was using the whole kit with my 5960x and godlike before that.

I believe you're correct - https://community.amd.com/community/...d-ryzen-system

Trident-Z 3200Mhz is a little pricey at 32GB (+$400) - I think 2666Mhz will be fine.

prefer to buy local, but happy to buy mems from overseas, but nothing else.

fairly sure gskill 3733 17-17-17 available in au uses the same samsung b die chips used on the 3200c14 kits so you just set them manually
but i have to agree having imported the 3200c14 kit myself back when it was cheaper and seeing the few kits of it that have made it into au with a asking price about double what it should be
