    Ryzen 2700X with 3200Mhz 16gb or 32gb

    Hi to all great people out there. I have one question that I would like to get help or feedback.

    I'm looking to upgrade my ram to 32gb, mostly due to video editing. Well.. it does run super fine with 16gb but since I'm going to spend some cash, I might as well as get more.

    The problem is:
    I have a 2700X and a Strix B450 E Gaming, the QVL is somewhat limited. Even worst, my current Corsair ram sticks are on the QVL and they do give me some problems.

    The BUG:

    When I play DirectX 11 games, sometimes my pc crashes completely, no BSOD just a gray screen forcing me to reboot with the button, also, the DRAM light on the board goes on.

    If I stress test the system, nothing happens, AIDA, Prime, Memtest for hours. Zero problems. DirectX9, 12 or vulkan games also goes on flawlessly. Its just DirectX 11 games.

    I have the Ram on 3200Mhz CL16, I've tried Ryzen DRAM calculator on SAFE, loosen timings myself, increasing voltage to 1.45 to no avail.

    I decided to buy the G.Skill as most people say its the best for Ryzen but what do you guys think?

    32Gb (problably dual rank) and hope it does the 3200?

    Buy from a shop that accepts returns, that's my advice. Zen 1 chips just struggle with memory and in my experience I sometimes found stability at like 2933 on a 3200 kit. If you need the extra capacity you might just have to settle for a lower speed unless you want to do days of tuning and testing.

    Maybe use this QVL for 2000 series. I know it's for 3000 series and higher, but better than nothing to sus out what might work, if you want to look at others apart from g.skill

    The 2000 series memory controller may stuggle with 4xRAM, suggest 2xRAM to hit memory size you want and maybe G.skill Neo branded.

    Might find this tool helpful as well
