Hallo everybody and thank you for your kind attention!

As a videoeditor I'm trying to upgrade my system with a larger RAM.

I'm aiming to a 64GB result.

a 32 gb will also be acceptable if I can get many advantages (money and frequence) by keeping my actual RAM chipset.


Gigabyte support sent me here:

to search my new RAM, but I can't read it ^^'

And plz forgive my poor English!


This is my actual system:

MOBO:GA-AB350-Gaming (1.x)
BIOS Ver:F4
Brand:GIGABYTE
GPU:GeForce® GTX 1070 G1 Gaming 8G (2.0)
CPU:Ryzen 5 1600
Operating System:Win 10 64-bit
RAM:G.Skill Flare X
Size:16GB
Memory Part No.:F4-3200C14D-16GFX
PSU750W

Video editing software tends to like more cores, and threads. If you are not fully utilizing the ram, that you have now, adding more will do nothing for you. That's why I recommend checking ram usage, before spending money on ram.

anyway, I'm using around 90% of my ram, and sometimes my softwares get stuck becouse of it.

I'd still need someone to point me out to some ram options from that QVL list!!

If you're only using 90% of your 16GB RAM kit, 32GB of RAM will be good enough.

32GB is more RAM that you would think. And it'll suit you fine.

You wouldn't even be able to do any video editing if you needed 64GB and all you have is 16GB.

Definitely get a faster CPU like Logain said.

Of course there are many things that I can't even try to do due to my system limitations.

I'm using 90% with only my premiere and effects.

If I could, I would be pleased to extend my workflow to a premiere/after effects/audition/photoshop/mocha/redgiant plug-in & dynamic link workflow

without being forced to save, close app, open the other in stand-alone version, save, close ...

and maybe watching things on chrome in the meanwhile.
