    i am running 4x8GB gskill tridentz 3200 c14 in my x370 xpower titanium

    I cannot run them anything over 2133mhz for the moment, but been advised this will be fixed with future bios releases.

    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...4/tips-for-building-a-better-amd-ryzen-system

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

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    I really prefer to support local but ffs they are making it hard if they don't stock good low latency ram and no I don't want to RGB everything :thumbdn:

    i bought the kit off OCAU, memory is the only thing though ive bought before from newegg, since lifetime warranty.

    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

    yeah, agree, ive always preferred low latency kits compared to higher frequency.

    love to tweak, see how strong certain IMC's are. My 5960x is a golden one, 4.5ghz 1.21V, run 3400 c14 with 8x8gb sticks installed. which from reading is well above average for 5960x's

    for instance with tweaking

    my GSkill 3000 C15 ripjaws would do 3333 C14 with volts on my 6700K, but on x99 (5820k) couldnt run them past 3200 c15.

    since i split my 64GB 3200c14 kit between the x370 and x99, intend to see the 1800x imc vs the 5960x imc

    hoping bios updates with ryzen allow me to actually run 3200 c14. they are currently running 2133 c14. as wont boot with 4 sticks installed at any speeds above 2133.
