    Very interesting indeed. When I got my Ryzen 7 1700 I used memory not really that great with Ryzen as it has Hynix SK memory chips. That memory was 4x4gb ddr4 2666. I got some great Gskill 2 x 8gb memory ddr4 3200 cl14 which runs great as it has Samsung B memory chips.

    What I found pretty amazing is memory speed and timings is king with Ryzen but when I ran 3dmark tymespy I got 10360 with the 4x4gb running 2666 with cl13 timings but using my old intel win10 installation. My best thus far with new win10 installation and 2 x 8gb ddr4 3200 cl14 is about 10244 physics much highet but gpu slower.

    Oh and Ryzen at present do not have quad channel memory support.

    Also my cpu only has dual channel support so doubt we would see any difference anyway.
    This compares Dual to Quad channel for real tasks.

    I'll bet you running a single DIMM won't change anything either. People get hung up on having 2 DIMMs to run dual channel but it really make little to no difference, except in benchmarks. If AMD Ryzen is different then cool but Intel rigs are happy just with good RAM.

    Thanx for the feedback. The results you got seem to be within the 1% margin of error. Were you able to run them multiple times per RAM 'selection' ? If I recall, AMD systems have always favored RAM speeds ? Is the IMC on AMD chips or still on the mobo?

    Only 'logic' I can throw in here, is that with say 4x4GB sticks VS 2x8GB sticks, is 1)Dual channel is starting to make a worthwhile difference in some titles as GPU's have more muscle. I do know for a fact, that the GPU feeds data to the CPU via the RAM. 2) {theory} That in smaller chunks,(4GB VS 8GB) the data is able to be read / written to RAM faster.

    Shot.... other 4 x 4gb ram already sold. Will do more runs on current ram later to confirm.

    Okay so correction, highest was 10328, I just reached 10317 so maybe not that big difference. Physics however is about 300 points higher, actually even 100 less than my Dry ice run with the chip at 4.6ghz and with the AIO water at 4.065ghz.
