$102.99 Shipped

Building a Ryzen desktop PC is not for the faint of heart. I did hours of research to make sure I found compatible memory and knew the AMD Ryzen limitations.

As of now this memory will run at 2666mhz and (unofficially) will most likely run at 2933mhz (aka 3000mhz) today too. According to Asus's latest QVL report (seen here: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/...170520.pdf) they have it working on their ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING motherboard. I'd say it is safe to assume it would work on most B350 boards.

This is some of the cheapest DDR4 ram that you can possibly purchase for AMD Ryzen and it has the LED lit memory modules and the capability of 3000mhz.

Tom's hardware has this listed on their best DDR4 list that was just released a few days ago: http://www.tomshardware.com/revie...,4057.html
You can read their review of the modules in that link too.

Model: THRD416G3000HC16CDC01

I'm posting this for anyone who is trying to make a Ryzen build. I've saved you hours of research. Enjoy.

Looks good. I was waiting for 3200mhz ram. Also I read we should be targeting c14. This is c16 right?

Lower latency will give a small boost in performance but you will pay dearly for it. The lowest priced 3000mhz with 14 cas is $167 on newegg (16GB total 8Gb x 2). The way I see it, for the same price as this 3000mhz 16 cas your other options include 2100mhz at 14 cas or 2400mhz at 14 cas. Both of those are not as good as the potential of 3000mhz at 16 cas. In one of the articles I was reading said a rudimentary way to calculate "true latency" is to multiply Cas latency by Clock Cycle Time. But an easier way to do this is to divide your cas latency into your Dram speed. The higher the number that is outputted, the lower the "True latency" is. The lower the true latency the better.

Here's an example: 2400mhz divided by 14 Cas = 171.
3000mhz divided by 16 Cas = 187 <--- Higher output = lower True latency = slightly better performance.

Here's a really good link that explains this: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/mem...ed-latency

This module in this deal would have higher performance than 2400mhz with 14 Cas. Both are about the same price. You could get 14 cas and 3000mhz but expect to pay $60 more. Is it worth the price? I say no, others will disagree (when spending money doesn't really matter)

This ram most likely will run at 2933mhz, its just not officially supported on QVL sheets yet by motherboard manufacturers. With the latest AGESA 1.0.0.6 firmware that was sent to all AMD motherboard manufacturers, you can now overclock much better. There's still compatibility issues right now and running 4 dimms (memory modules) together prevents you from overclocking above 2666mhz according to ASUS (I believe I read that correctly earlier) on certain motherboards? There's so many quirks as of now.

AMD just came out with a list at the end of June for compatible Ryzen DDR4 memory modules that they approve and have tested. The list is VERY short and most of the model numbers lead to no products that you can actually purchase. Here's a link to the DDR4 list: https://www.amd.com/system/files/...t-en_0.pdf

Then there's the issue that computer purists have with memory modules that use hynix chips on them. Overclockers do not like the hynix chips for Ryzen. The problem is acquiring information as to what company is supplying the chips on the modules. Luckily this memory module uses Samsung chips which is the preferred company. Even AMD has come out and stated that Samsung B-die chips play nicely with Ryzen. There's so much that can go wrong with a Ryzen build unless you do research.

Fwiw, this memory is not on the QVL list for the ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4 which is part of the 1700 combo deal at Newegg. Different motherboard can have different trace lengths on the CPU to DDR connection so just because it works on Asus, no guarantees on the ASRock.

I understand but I think this is the faster ram. I am considering getting it. I have patriot extreme on backorder right now on amazon which doesn't seem like it will ship soon.

This Team T-Force is better overall. I think it looks really sweet too. My Ryzen motherboard I just bought has red lights in it so it will look pretty sweet in my case. Not that aesthetics mean anything to me. It really doesn't but it just happens that it pairs perfectly with my motherboard's color scheme.
