So, there are not too many RAM foundries in the world. Hynix and Samsung are two giants. Now, why does Hynix even matter? Well, for AMD users it's had issues with RAM performance. It's more prone to having memory issues.When you're using RAM past DDR4 2133, you're likely using the on-board overclocking profile. It's common. But as I said, AMD's latest 2 generations seem to be more susceptible to issues with RAM. Not really an issue so far with Intel CPUs.

If you're just looking for budget stuff, like this, the hynix m is likely going to work just fine for everyday use. As always, YMMV. If I was building a budget AMD rig, I would give an M-Die a pass. At the very least, I would checkout how the processor, motherboard, and RAM have worked for others in the configuration I was going to build. Ryzen has stability issues with RAM, so I'd do my due diligence.

Anywho, M-Die is budget stuff and fine for most at a good deal. If I was building for Ryzen, I'd go Samsung, and Samsung B-Die if I was doing Intel i7/i9, TR, or a 2700x or better.

Ryzen 1000 seriess compatibility on b350 motherboards. Some people still have issues after the latest mobo bios updates.

I have the ASRock B350 motherboard on one of my budget builds paired with the Aegis (although mine was 2400mhz) and prior to BIOS updates, I couldn't get past 2800mhz. After BIOS updates, I could overclock to 3200 on pretty much the same timings. Had to raise the voltage slightly though.

What brand of ram would you suggest for a ryzen 2600 and b450(I still couldn't decide) build.

I bought the 2600x. My research says that any memory is fine (3200Mhz or lower) with Ryzen 2000 series and b450 motherboards with the latest bios. I am assembling my system in a few days when all the parts arrive. I bought 3200MHz corsair lpx 16-18-18 (most likely hynix).

The internet generally agrees that 3000 to 3200MHz is the sweet spot for Ryzen from a cost to performance standpoint.

*Edit. I also bought a b450 motherboard.

Thank you for this detailed explanation but now I'm a little worried. I purchased this exact memory for a build I plan to start next week. My board is a msi b450 tomahawk paired with a Ryzen 5 2600. I almost want to RMA The ram even before starting my build. I tried doing some homework by using pcpartpicker before selecting the components but it seems I might have still made a few mistakes.

What about X470 boards? Would this RAM be incompatible for those boots as well? I have an MSI, if that matters.

I use Hynix m die ram with Ryzen 2600 / MSI x470 motherboard and it works just fine.

Ram brand is ADATA.

It's a 2400 kit that I overclock to 3133 cl 16-18-18-36.
