    Memory overclockers - Z590 Maximus Hero & RAM

    I'm looking at RAM for my Z590 Maximus Hero board (with 11700K) Cooling is good. I do like to overclock. I'm not an expert by any means, but willing to put time and effort in. My PC build is purely for gaming.

    For this particular board and with overclocking in mind, would you advise 2 x 16 GB or 4 x 8 GB sticks? 3600 CL18 or 4000 CL19? *

    I don't have much experience with Rog boards (coming from MSI after several years) so wanting to pick your brains. I'm looking at Corsair sticks so it goes nicely with existing my Corsair ecosystem (fans, AIO and lighting) but open minded to other RAM brands if that's better for overclocking objectives. *

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    2 DIMMs are preferable on this particular board due to the daisy chain topology. 4000C19 is preferable, however, manual tuning may be needed. 3600 ratio should be mostly plug and play for most CPU samples.
