Hey I am just finishing a ryzen7 1800x build and I am getting ready to pull the trigger and buy my DRAM. I am going to be using it for 3ds max, the adobe CC stuff, Realflow and Unity/Unreal engine game environment development stuff. I actually spend more time making games than playing them. So the focus of the build is 3DS MAX.
Here is what I have so far: ROG CROSSHAIR VI EXTREME AMD - Ryzen 7 1800X 3.6GHz 8-Core Processor RADEON PRO WX 7100
Along with a bunch of other parts ie: Crucial - MX500 2TB 2.5" Solid State Drive and a pending at least 1TB Samsung m.2 depending on current prices as result of the 970's coming to market.
For now I am going to boot from the MX500 2TB and get my software ecosystem imported established and thriving. I should state that my intention is to have 64GB of ram running at the highest speed I can achieve while remaining rock solid stable. I had originally planned to drop in two 16GB sims for a total of 32GB on build day then go on a shopping spree on black Friday and fill the rest of the slots. I don't see many or any ryzen7 systems with 64GB of ram being built but then again it seems not many people have my focused needs.
So here are my questions: *1. What are my chances of achieving 3200mhz across 64GB of DDR4? I am well aware of the whole latency thing and am willing to spring for 14cas Gskill if it will work close to or at 3200mhz and well above 2400mhz with 64GB installed.
*2. Do I stand a better chance of reaching my ram speed goals if I purchase my DRAM kit all at once as in get all 64GB at once in one package instead of buying identical ram down the road?
I know these are first world problems and quibbling over how I spend well over $5000.00CAD on my computer seems like a minor problem within the big picture but you guys like games. Right? Someone has to spend hours making those games. Like me.
So any help will be appreciated and I promise to continue to make cool stuff for you to blow up, kill and explore with epic effects.
