I got my pre-order in with newegg for the 1950X and the MSI X399 Pro carbon board. I wanted the taichi, but it wasnt offered through my newegg premier for some reason. I am having a hard time figuring out which ram to get for it. I know TR is essentially 2 ryzen cpus fused together, so I assume the logic of ram compatibility is about the same.
2 questions. I don't do HEAVY streaming or anything professional grade with running tons of things at once, gaming mostly, and video encodes.
So my first question is, would 16GB be enough? I was thinking maybe a 16GB quad channel kit @ 3000Mhz CL15 from corsair. Or, if I go 32GB quad kit @ 3200Mhz CL15 from corsair.. I looked on newegg for a decent quad channel kit, and came to a few options.
Second question. I am having a hard time deciding between 3000mhz and 3200mhz. I know the board states up to 3600mhz, but I am not trying to get the fastest ram on earth in this thing. Just something speedy and efficient and something that will be good for gaming and video encodes, with the occasional streaming.
I watched a few videos online showing even with adobe products, with the exception of after effects, which is a program I don't even use, all of the test were about the same running 16GB vs 32GB. I hope I can get some expertise from you guys as always .
Thank you everyone. I love this forum!
