Hi guys!

I experience a lot of in game crashes and it might have to do with the incompatible RAM that I have. The RAM that I now have, isn't on the QVL list of my motherboard, so I am hoping to solve this issue by buying new RAM.

Motherboard: Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800x
Current RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V F4-3600C18D-32GVK

The Memory Support List (QVL): https://download.gigabyte.com/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_am4_4L4D_vermeer.pdf?v=390bb5e1cba06dbd4601a1444a6ddffd

The RAM I am looking into:

-Corsair Vengeance LPX CMK32GX4M4B3600C18
-Corsair CMW32GX4M4C3600C18
-Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB CMT16GX4M2C3600C18
-Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro CMW16GX4M2Z3600C18
-Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro CMW32GX4M4D3600C18

If I am correct, all these should be perfectly compatible with my motherboard.

So, just to be sure, can you please answer these questions?
-Are these RAM compatible with my motherboard or not?
-Did I actually provide the correct QVL list? (If I look up the information about my motherboard and cpu, this list pops up.)
-On the QVL list, you actually see "ver 3.31" etc. behind the name. But I don't see these on the webshops. Does that matter?
-Is there a difference between "Micron" and "Samsung" and what should I look for?



Sorry that this might seem a little bit overdone, but I just spend 2400.- on my new PC, which crashes in game. So I just want to make this right.

Thank you in advance!

Only Z3600C18 works perfectly fine because it's Ryzen optimized. All the other depends on the version number. You don't know what the shop sends you because they all have the same SKU. Ver.5.30 works bad with Ryzen and 3.31 and 4.31 excellent.
