How to quickly find RAM for AMD Ryzen

A simple algorithm of actions when choosing RAM for capricious “red” processors

For the past couple of years, AMD has been successfully fighting with competitors, forcing them to lower prices and force the development of more advanced technologies. This is especially true for processors. Only after the release of the AMD Ryzen line in 2017, Intel began to release new lines with noticeable differences from their predecessors and greatly reduced the cost to the consumer. However, the Ryzen 5 1600 remains the most popular processor on the market, although it has already released two successors with better specifications at the same starting price.

Nevertheless, the latest processors from AMD have a significant drawback – picky about RAM memory chips. In games, all representatives of the Ryzen lines work the better the faster the RAM in the system, but not all modules can be “made friends” with a capricious processor at high frequencies and low timings. However, we do know a simple algorithm of how to choose the right RAM for AMD Ryzen.

Which RAM to choose for AMD Ryzen

  1. Go to any of the major online stores you trust.
  2. Filter DDR4 RAM by availability, with a frequency of 2400 MHz, two modules in the kit, timings not higher than CL16 and the desired volume (usually they take 16 or 32 gigabytes in total).
  3. Open the list ofAMD Ryzen compatible RAM models in the next tab .
  4. Copy the code designation of any model you like from the search results of the store (for example: F4-3200C16D-16GVKB) and paste it into the search bar from the previously opened AMD website.
  5. If a memory with such a designation is found, then it has been tested by AMD specialists – click on its name and a page with details of frequencies and timings that are achieved in the XMP profile (enhanced memory performance mode; enabled in BIOS) will open. If no memory is found , go back to step 4.
  6. Write down the code of the selected model to place an exact order in the store.

Common RAM Models Compatible with All Generations of AMD Ryzen

G.Skill’s entire Trident Z family works great with Ryzen

We have selected several RAM models with good overclocking potential, which can be found in Russian stores without any problems. Copy the code mark from the square brackets and search your store:

  • Corsair Vengeance LPX [CMK16GX4M2Z2400C16] 2400 MHz 2×8 GB
  • Corsair Vengeance LPX [CMK32GX4M2A2400C14] 2400 MHz 2×16 GB
  • Kingston HyperX Fury Black [HX432C16FB3K2 / 16] 3200 MHz 2×8 GB
  • Kingston HyperX Fury Black [HX432C16FB3K2 / 32] 3200 MHz 2×16 GB
  • Skill Trident Z [F4-3600C16D-16GTZSW] 3600 MHz 2×8 GB
  • Skill RIPJAWS V [F4-3200C16D-16GVKB] 3200 MHz 2×8 GB

Remember that almost everything affects performance in games and professional software. And memory efficiency, especially on the AMD platform, is essential. Therefore, choose any components wisely. And we will continue to help you with this in our materials.
