I must have misread a spec or label, but when i build my PC I ordered Patriot PVS416G400C9K 32Gb DDR 4000Mhz, 1.35v, 19-19-19-39. It is not on the MB support list and the 5600x should be runnig PC3600.

It passes any mem test i run, but i do have occasional crashes gaming.

I am looking at getting :
Team 3600MHz, TF10D416G3600HC14CDC01, CL14-15-15-35

Will going from 4000 to 3600 be noticeable and or will it help?

Current specs:
Gigabyte B550 AORUS MASTER F15e bios | Ryzen 5 5600x 4.6Ghz | Thermaltake 240mm water 3.0 | MSI Ventus 3X 4070 12G | Patriot PVS416G400C9K 32Gb DDR 4000Mhz 1.35v 19-19-19-39 | 1Tb WD Black M2 NVME | 1Tb SSD Samsung 860 EVO | Thermaltake 850w Toughpower 72A 12v rail | Fractal Design 7 case | Win 10 Pro 64 19045

3600MHz with low latency seems to be optimum for Ryzen 5000 series, over that gains are minimal but you don't have to replace RAM just for that, you can always run it at lower frequency. It must have 2 XMP profiles so just set it on lower settings and see how it goes. That should also lower latency so there should be even less of performance loss.
Even on 4000MHz you can try raising RAM Voltage by small amount, 0.01 to 0.02v which usually helps stability.

Off topic from RAM but still part of my issue:

Regarding the occasional crashes i mentioned in my OP, would PPT maxing out cause crashes. I noticed on Ryzen Master that the PPT would occasionally max out for the 76W default setting. I changed PPT to 90W and i haven't had any kind of crash since. Does this make sense?

If it fixed the issue that's great! Could be the many things, but if it stays stable the cpu or memory controller needed more juice to run properly, or keep pace with the faster ram.
