    If you don't get a direct answer you can browse the AMD 500 series forum and look at the PC specs of some of the folks there:

    Hello,

    Really depends on your budget and the capacity needed.

    GSKILL Neo kits are still one the best options due to GSKILL's vigorous hand binning. Look for anything in the 3400-3666 range. Anything beyond this can often require manual tweaking and a good CPU when running 1:1 FCLK.

    I wish 64GB. But in the qvl sheet I found only 32GB, 4x8 3600mhz.

    Any ram will work provided its the right type, DDR4 in this case, QVL lists are by no means exhaustive, I wouldn't put much, or really any importance on them with a Ryzen 9 processor. Some of the older Ryzen processors however..........

    64GB density at 3600 and beyond is tough on the fabric, so expect some manual tweaking. There are plenty of kits out there that aren’t validated, however. Stick with GSKILL.
