In Topic: Can't get RAM to run at rated speeds. [Ryzen 1600X]

But if you can get more MHz with slightly looser timings, you should.  Something about the "fabric".  It affects more than just the ram and only see's the MHz number, from my understanding.

 

Yes - Specifically with Ryzen.  I have an X99 system.

You're upgrading from a 6900k?  :whoa:

 

The only time I'll go water cooling is if it's a custom loop.  If you already got it and it fits the motherboard, it will work great.

I can't speak for MSI boards in particular, but at least a few of the other manufacturers have made some some great improvements.  My 3200 sticks are running at 3333 just fine and are not Samsung b die.  Actually they are Hynix.  That said, you should:

 

1.     Make sure you are using the most recent bios update, maybe even try an unofficial one if you read that others have had success with it.

2.     I run my DDR4 at 1.4 volts so you could try increasing yours from 1.2.

 

Also know that even if you can't get above 2933 (yet) that the difference would be extremely minimal.  The performance starts to plateau just before this speed.

 

That's also very true.  It's why I run my 3200mhz sticks at 2800mhz with tighter timings and less voltage.  BIOS updates are also a huge difference maker if your manufacturer has released updates containing newer AGESA code.

The RAM you have is not the preferred Samsung "B" die.  Still, they're rated at those speeds at 1.35v so there's no guarantee you'll be able to get them to run at higher speeds with less voltage.

 

Ryzen is still picky with memory as well.

The NH-D15S is a top of the line air cooler - It will keep that processor just as cool as most AIO's.
