The MOBO in this build (x470 Taichi) is rated by the ASRock website to handle up to DDR4 4000 with Pinnacle Ridge CPUs. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/CNCharger/saved/XB8QZL

There are only two 4000MHz ram modules on that QVL list, that will run at 3200MHz if overclocked.

Also the specs of the board for the ram with an Pinnacle Ridge processor has as follow.

AMD Ryzen series CPUs (Pinnacle Ridge) support DDR4 3466+(OC) / 3200(OC) / 2933/2667/2400/2133

There is nothing that states that Ram will ever run at 4000MHz on that board.

The max ram speed that you could achieve on that board with a Pinnacle Ridge CPU (most probably running at stock speeds) is 3466MHz.

Also, the XMP profile should support up to 3466 and above its manual overclocking.

I think the latest Ryzen lineup should have an easier time with this memory speed than the original ones but above 3200, the gains are usually very small for 99.999% of users anyway.

Yes that's true.

Perhaps one game or two, would offer better performance with an fictional scenario that you would be able to make the ram run at 4000MHz, but no one buys with that in mind. lol

Who would ever give a fortune on such high speed Ram kits, if you can invest the additional money for getting a better CPU, GPU, board etc. etc.

Some people do need such heavy kits of RAM but those users are usually professionals and most of them use heavy demanding applications that are best left for heavier core count CPUs like the Threadripper platform anyways.

Yeah perhaps... :)

Note1: The O.C. mode is not guaranteed. It depends on whole system configuration and other parameters.

Note2: When running XMP at DDR4 2667MHz or higher, the system’s stability depends on the CPU’s capabilities.

Note3: For system stability, use more efficient memory cooling system to support a full memory load (4 DIMMs) when overclocking.
