    Best available DDR5 for ROG STRIX Z690-E . (2X16)

    I see that I posted my request for DDR5 ram advice in the wrong place.


    Question:

    What DDR5 ram is recommended for the ROG STRIX Z690-E . (2X16) Price is not a concern

    And, who has the ram in stock, where to buy them?

    After a challenging time (sound problem) with a pre-built Dell XPS 8950 (I've returned it), I've decided to rebuild my ASRock. I got hooked with the XPS speed during the three days that it worked.

    Proposed replacement parts:

    ROG STRIX Z690-E

    Intel Core i9-12900K Desktop Processor 16 (8P+8E) Cores up to 5.2 GHz Unlocked LGA1700 600 Series Chipset 125W

    and, if compatible, G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin SDRAM DDR5 5600 (PC5-44800) CL36-36-36-76 1.20V Dual Channel Desktop Memory Model F5-5600U3636C16GA2-TZ5RK

    Any suggestions?

    Much thanks, Kerry

    How did it work? Does it run at 6000? I am considering the same memory for my 690-E and 12900k.

    With some games, DDR5 6000MT/s is showing a nice increase over DDR4.

    Hello,

    for your board I would recommend kits in the region of 5800 to 6000MT. Above this can rely on CPU variance.
