Hi, I'm a difficult person and I've been wondering about the choice of RAM for several hours :sweatsmile:. Currently, I have a G.Skill TridentZ 2x8GB 3000 Mhz CL14 (Samsung B-Die) bought in 2018. However, I have a problem with them, always after disconnecting the power and turning on the computer doesn't boot, the red DRAM LED on the motherboard is constantly on ... Now I am only on 1x8GB because the computer turned on on one RAM stick.

Honestly, I'm fed up with it.. That's why I'm going to buy RAM.. And my question, what RAM do you recommend for i5-11400F and Gigabyte B560 Aorus PRO AX? It can be with RGB or not..

I was thinking about:
Kingston Fury Beast RGB 2x8GB 3600Mhz CL 17 / 3200Mhz CL 16
Patriot Viper Steel RGB 2x8GB 3600Mhz CL18 or without RGB Viper Steel
Adata Spectrix D41 RGB 2x8GB 3200Mhz CL16
Adata Spectrix D60G RGB 2x8GB 4133MHz CL19
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 2x8GB 3200Mhz CL16 / 3600Mhz CL18

or do you have any other good RAM? Besides, is it still worth buying 2x8GB or better 2x16GB?
 
Hey there,

Well, your mobo supports OC (XMP) ram up to DDR4 4800mhz. The CPU supports up to 3200mhz. However, the IMC on Intel chips are renowned for being really strong, and often can take those speeds as well.

In terms of the dfifferent modules you've listed they all are pretty close, with the exception of the Spectrix 4133 CL19. The rest pretty much balance each other out when at 3600/CL18 which is very similar in performance to 3200/CL16. The Spextrix may or may not work on your mobo

There are quite a few 4133mhz on the QVL for your mobo. It might be worth selecting whatever chips from there first, so you know they will work:

So every time you shut down you take the pc of the power? Why?

Wonder if you just have a bios issue because of this, maybe even just a low motherboard battery.
I meant it always happens when I turn off the PSU when I want to clean the computer of dust, for example.

This is not a BIOS or battery issue. Even the first time I turned on this mobo, there was a problem with RAM.. Previously I had an AsRock X370 Taichi board with Ryzen 5 3600 and there was the same problem. On Ryzen 5 1600 with this motherboard everything worked perfectly, the problem started when I installed R5 3600, when I had the R5 3600, it was a tragedy at all ... There was a problem to even run on 1 RAM stick. I don't know why, but it's like these RAM won't turn on in dual channel, I suspect they're damaged or I don't know, it's a tough situation. On the current board (B560) it's a lottery whether it will turn on in dual channel, so I give it a rest because I don't have nerves for it
