    then you should have bought 3200mhz ram and not 2666mhz. I doubt you'll be able to get to 3200mhz without seriously loosening the timings

    Ryzen is supposed to gain significantly with faster RAM yes.

    You may want to peruse the web for more info, as well. Ryzen has been doing best at 3200mhz with Samsung ICs on Dual Rank DIMMS, with 2 slots populated. Vengeance LPX @ 3200 and 3000 have proven to be some of the more versatile, but there's other kits out there that will run that high. Also, do not be surprised if your board bios won't support it yet.

    I'm stuck at 2400 right now. Might be a way for me to get beyond that (I did get it to post at 2666 once) but I haven't been able to figure that out yet.
