Hey. So i bought GTX 1070 and it is not performing as well as in youtube videos and i think it has to do with the ram. It is 1 ram stick in a dual stick motherboard and im suspecting its bottlenecking my system. Gpu temp does not exceed 70 C and Cpu does not exceed 50 C. One example is GTA V on very high, 4x msaa and no extended distance range it runs 60-70fps but drops 40-50 alot of the time. Drivers are up to date and i deleted old gpu driver and reinstalled Geforce Experience. I'm looking for 16gb dual ram right now.

Specs:
GTX 1070
Ryzen 1500x
1.5TB 5400RPM
1x8GB Corsair Valueselect 2133mhz DDR4
A320M-HDV
240GB Kingston A400 SSD
600W PSU Corsair VS600
 
Yup, first of all, RYZEN CPUs are really hungry on the system Memory frequency. Apart from having 1 RAM kit, you also have a slower RAM with 2133mhz. Ryzen systems do indeed benefit from a faster clocked RAM kit (dual-channel).

But, I'm not fully sure whether this is giving you poor frame rates in games though. I think if you upgrade your RAM kit for a faster clocked memory, with decent CL Timings, then you should benefit from this setup, IMO.

Is 2x8gb Cl16 2600 or 3000mhz good enough?
