The ram I really want is the G.skill, however, I've heard that am4 destroys the ram. but everything is about 7-10 months old and I'm unsure if this issue has been fixed this issue.

"....destroys RAM..." is a bit misleading in any way it is said or typed. "False", literally. "Likes fast RAM" is more accurate.

I think you would find 10s of 1,000s of people use that RAM. I opted for the G.Skill Flare-X 3200 myself and it's been perfect. If that RAM is on your ASUS compatibility list, then it will work. The faster it is, the happier Ryzen is.

oh cool! its just I saw lots of reviews on youtube with people using the G.Skill Trident Z ram and then they said next day there ram no longer worked and it has re-written something on the ram making it unusable but all the vids where 5-7 months old.

im glad it likes fast ram! the board im getting is the ASUS AMD AM4 Ryzen CROSSHAIR VI HERO X370 ATX Motherboard.

This is the specs on the memery that the board can take
