    Help with RAM and basic overclocking

    I have the Asus ROG Crosshair VI Extreme mobo. 16GB (8x2) of G.SKILL TridentZ DDR4 3600 (Model F4-3600C15D-16GTZ). I'm pretty sure it's Samsung B-Die. It was the best RAM with the lowest latency that I could find at the time.

    Ryzen 7 1800X CPU. Wraith Max cooler. The latest 7704 BIOS on the mobo. A XFX Vega 64 LC which is the closed loop liquid cooled factory overclocked variant with a 120mm radiator/fan.

    Can someone tell me what easy steps I should take to make my RAM perform better than the default 2133MHz that it's at right now? Also, should I use the GPU overclocking features in the Radeon software? I don't really understand how they work or if it's even possible for me to squeeze any more out of my already factory overclocked GPU.

    I want to maximize my performance for new games without doing anything crazy.

    Edit: Also, I think I read one time that you don't want to set your RAM past a certain speed with Ryzen CPU's. Because if you go to a certain speed it will cut the CPU's Infinity Fabric i/o speed in half. Does anyone know anything about that?

    Just set the RAM speed manually to 3200 and see if the CPU IMC can handle that....maybe set voltage manually to 1.35 and SA voltage to 1.1 or try 1.15...1.2

    First gen Ryzen is a bit hit and miss...but yeah...B-die helps

    If it can do 3200 15 15 15 35...try 14 14 14 34 or 14 14 14 28

    3600 is a big ask of first gen ryzen...not many could do it
