I'm looking for a fast kit of 4x32 GB RAM sticks, and I have now spent the last two days reading about different options, limitations and what people have experienced with their kits. Still, I have not been able to clearly verify what I should buy to get a stable, yet fast RAM-kit into my new system build (in the title).
Main candidates seems to be: G.Skill Trident Z Neo DDR4 3600MHz 4x32GB - F4-3600C16Q-128GTZN G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4 3600MHz 4x32GB - F4-4000C18Q-128GTZR G.Skill Trident Z Royal Gold DDR4 3600MHz 4x32GB - F4-3600C16Q-128GTRG (or the silver version, whats the difference?)
And some say that this Corsair kit is better: 128GB Vengeance RGB RT DDR4 3600MHz 4x32GB CMN128GX4M4Z3600C18
Is there just me or is it very unclear what will work best? Please help me sort these things out .
My current system is a i9-9900K on a GigaByte Designare Z390 board with two kits of Corsair Vengeance LPX Black DDR4 3600MHz 2x32GB - CMK64GX4M2D3600C18 I run FEM-simulations, some Solidworks CAD and Photoshop. Main reason to the needed amount of RAM is that I regularly work with a set of multilayered tiff-files in Photoshop that is 86k x 43k. For the new system I have bought a set of 2TB 980 Pro's to use in four of the M.2 connectors, and one of these will l be dedicated to PS swap, one for windows and PS, and one for the files I currently work with. My budget hindered me to go for a TreadRipper system, but this 5950X-path haven't been cheap either, "just" the RAM and eventually upgraded water-loops missing now 🙂
Just to report back; This weekend I have finally been installing the mobo and i went for this kit: G.Skill Trident Z Neo DDR4 3600MHz 4x32GB - F4-3600C16Q-128GTZN Worked perfect! I just had to activate DOCP as said here.
Also installed a EK monoblock, and I let one radiator sit on each sides of the graphics and CPU in the loop. Super quiet and a real workhorse and gamestation!
