    MSI B350 Board No Longer Works w/ 2x 8GB DDR4 Modules?

    In a sort of strange occurrence my B350 machine is totally acting up now; I've never had any issues with it before--aside from my 1500X processor being a bit of a turd of an OC'er. Anyway, the board is a MSI B359 Tomahawk Arctic and I can't seem to run two 3200mhz DIMM's anymore though I had...

    Hello, I am considering to build a high-end workstation using i7-8700K and ASUS ROG Strix Z370-E Gaming motherboard. The main reason to choose this MB is that support from ASUS thinks that it could be compatible with Ubuntu Linux, my main OS for work. Some users on the net also have some...

    Will Celeron G3900 work with OC memory on a Z270 motherboard?

    I would like to use Celeron G3900 with a Z270 motherboard. The motherboard says it supports "DDR4-4133+(OC) Memory", but the CPU says it only supports DDR4-1866/2133. Will OC memory be able to work on OC speeds or not? If not, then what is the cheapest Intel 6th Gen CPU I can use? Am I limited...

    Ryzen: if can't run full (3200MHz) speed, is DDR4-3000 CL15 faster than DDR4-3200CL16 b/c of the CL?

    With Ryzen, if for whatever reason you can't run your RAM at max (3200MHz) speed, would it actually be better to buy DDR4-3000 CL15 than DDR4-3200 CL16, because both would be running at 2933MHz or less, but the DDR4-3000 CL15 would be running at CL15 while the DDR4-3200 CL16 would be running at...

    Max RAM speed with Ryzen without entering overclock mode?

    Definitely a noob question. What RAM speed can you get with Ryzen without entering overclock mode? Suppose you have 3200MHz/CL16 -rated RAM (single-rank, 2 DIMMS). Is anything above 2133 MHz going to involve being in overclock mode, thus disabling Precision Boost and XFR? Or is 2667 MHz (the...
