Hello community!!

I'd like to know if your Ryzen chip is able to hit anything beyond 3200mhz (specifically 3466 and 3600), and if you have multiplie Ryzen systems, it would be awesome to know how many of your Ryzen platforms were able to hit theses frequencies aswell.

The reason why I'm making this thread is because by now, BIOS revisions have basically made all 3000mhz kits and almost all 3200mhz kits completely usable and compatible with Ryzen (especially 2nd gen). But there isn't a whole lot of discussion regarding 3466 and 3600mhz support.

Please answer the poll and also comment below, for further discussion!!

With memory having such a positive impact with gaming on Ryzen it would be nice to see what performance increases we see going from 3200 to 3600, and what support we'll see on X570 motherboards when they release.
 
Can't vote because you didn't put 3600MHz as a choice.
My system is running my RAM at 3600MHz full stable but I was also able to boot to windows (not much more) with 3666MHz although it took 1.55v and 1.3v SoC. Those caused overheat in few minutes, wouldn't recommend it. I know of a guy running 4000 MHz on 2700x and C7H MB.
With latest BIOS (4602) I didn't even had to bother with manual settings. I just set DOCP to 3000MHz, memory to 3600MHz and it works at Cl16 instead of XMP specified CL18.
As for whole system and even CPU performance gains, I find that anything over 3200MHz is running into diminishing returns situation. 3200MHz with dual channel and low CL is best combo for price.
PS.
You listed 3466 twice !!!

I also can't vote because I run my 3200 Mhz G.Skill TridentZ (C16 Hynix AFR) RAM at 3400 MHz. I have not tried to run them any faster. I used the DRAM Calculator (safe profile) to tighten up my timings at 3400 and they are 100% stable with my Ryzen 5 2600 OC'd to 3.95 GHz.
