Beware of comments here with misinformation and false quality allegations or about fake incompatibility issues with this ram and mobo. It's compatible and a good price (also people tend to dismiss anything based on price)

It's a modern motherboard with modern bios software capable of doing amazing things with a Ryzen chip. Look up infinity fabric. It's some insane stuff

Paired with a good amount of decent budget ram. There's only a few factories that manufactures this type of ram so the name means very little. It call comes from the same factories

What AMD's IF tech does is allows your gpu to access the pool of ram memory quickly as if it was its own. It might be another gimmick but I've been using it for 3 years with this same ram and love it.

Look here for timing tips: https://imgur.com/6ZSDax7 What you want is absolute latency of 10. Anything lower and most of us won't see any returns

As you see there's a number of combinations that get to 10 or lower. In your bios this will be easy to test until you're happy with the speed. The speed listed on the product is just a factory setting they're confident of. Going over may void warrantee etc

A combo with crappy Intel ram and AMD motherboard doesn't seem very slick IMO.

2666mhz ram on a b550m. Any AMD cpu that is current is at least 3200mhz

Nah. Just more laymen on this site who don't know how absolute latency and clock timing work

Ppl like you always pick flashing RGB lights and shiny chrome ram over actually bothering to figure out how to set your ram up or whether it's even benefiting you



Oh look there's one now. Yes review the product you have zero hands on experience with and make up fake labels. As is the SD way!
Nothing to do with RGB or not... It is 2666Mhz with CL19 and it is just slow. There will be a noticeable different in FPS in many games, comparing to what you'll get from a 3600Mhz-CL18 setup.

You make no sense whatsoever. This entire thread is typical of how SD handles PCs

You're only posting half of the equation using timing. What matters is the end latency. Here is a table: https://imgur.com/6ZSDax7

The target is 10 ns. So ok run it at 3200 but the CL is 16

You'll get the same result at 2800 with a CL of 14

I run mine stable at around 2933 CL14 iirc (it's set up in the bios under try it!). The same ram



That doesn't make any sense. You can try whatever timings you like until it's stable well above those. Nobody would run them at CL 19 2666 lmao

You don't know how this works. See above
Ryzen performance is dependent on ram speed. Both Mhz and latency. I personally saw my 3DMark Timespy score jump by 5% by going from 3000 Mhz ram to 3600 Mhz ram. Same brand and model of ram. Just different sticks.

These modules are difficult to overclock. See the comments. They are sold in lower spec with lower price range for a reason. They are stable only in lower clockspeed. The manufacturer tested the module and sorted them out already. Those better rams are set to higher clock stock clockspeed and sold in higher price tags. These are what left.

I'm not sure why you are insisting that a lower spec product is as good as a higher spec product while they are not.

You can argue that they are good budget/value pick, but these are indeed low-end rams there's no doubt.....

Correct. Infinity fabric is the shizzle. People are fixating on half the equation (and some weird YouTube reviewer tip they heard or something)

I'm very happy with this ram. I was scared it was so cheap and yet happy I knew the brand vs taking a gamble on Neo Forza or something. But I got lucky as it turned out well. I doubt the brand means much it's how it performs hands on in the end

I hope others oh a budget will see this and not all the bizarre misinformation



Why would I need to see comments for a product I've used daily for 3+ years? Lol

I'm stoopid. I'd never done it before. It was easy as heck from this bios



Woah lower spec? Uh what a very well reasoned and detailed review. You forgot to mention the artwork is just a cheap sticker applied hastily lol

We have two people here who've used it and it ran great at high speeds. Aren't you all about comments?

By lower spec I meant the lower stock clockspeed and higher stock latency. No one mentioned the artwork or stuff like that but you....

You can overclock a 2666-CL19 to 2999-CL14. Ok it is good. But with the same work you may also be able to overclock a 3600-CL18 to 4133-CL16.

What I mean is you need to compare apple to apple. You cannot compare your overclocked speed-CL to the stock speed-CL of a higher spec product and saying that they are the same. No they are not. The higher spec product can overclock too.

That 2660mhz memory compared to a 3200 or 3600 is gonna be a 5-10% performance fail. Is it worth saving a few bucks over that?
