I like Patriot. I had a set of Intel Extreme Master 1866 DDR3 which would OC to 2400 and not blink. But that said, I'm currently running Ripjaws V 3600/16 (SkHynix) with this Ryzen 3700X, Bios is 6 months old, so is 2-3 back from latest, and this ram hasn't given me the first issue. Just set XMP and I'm all good.

So while I'd love to see that Patriot ram work out for you, you are doing a whole heap of work to get something that's supposed to be plug-n-play, to work and failing. The best ram for a Ryzen currently is the GSkill Neos , for 3000 series cpus that's 3600/16.

can confirm, my 4x8 kit of Trident Z Neo 3600 16-16-16-36 b-die has been plug and play with my 3900X. Neither the G.Skill Configurator or the board had this RAM on their compatibility lists. yet it worked just fine and I was also able to tighten timings to this stable:



however, i have opted to just leave default timings with tRFC to 324 as stated above. Still, this is possible, so just get G.Skill which is more than likely to work out of the box.

Right, I gave up. I'll return the Viper RAM. I actually had 32gb 3600mhz Ripjaw RAM here. Just due to going missing in delivery, issued refunds, me buying the Viper RAM etc, I hadn't opened it. Now I've paid for it again to keep and it seems to be working so far. I've put it in, turned the XMP profile on and got to desktop with 3600mhz! All seems good although I haven't stress tested it yet with AIDA64. Will do that next. Thanks for all the help though, it seems this was the quickest way in the end but I appreciate all the answers!

I'm super torn on best answer, feel bad not giving it to all of you for the help you've tried to give me! And there's no set answer to the question since I just ended up changing RAM! I'll pick one tonight though, wish I could give you all best answer!

well, if you don't pick one, ErVivek will be here to pick one for you ;)
I'm tempted by that actually. Feel bad no matter who I pick, someone who knows their stuff might be best for this. Everyone tried to help but there's no real answer to this question although lots of attempts to get me to the end goal from you kind souls. I'll have a think though!

I'm very surprised by @AlexaKitty. Getting 3600MHz out of 4x sticks is something I've never seen yet, most ppl have issues getting 3200MHz, simply because of the Infinity Fabric that Ryzens use and the way the ports are set up. Slot 2/4 run full speed, but 1/3 are almost always capped. That might have been changed or bumped up with the B550 boards, I've not seen any confirmations either way.

Nice to know it's possible though 👍

Deciding best answer shouldn't be difficult 😏, it'll be the one that pointed you in the right direction as far as solving the issue, regardless of the amount of work, time, research by everyone else. It's not aimed at the receiver to get any benefits, best answer is aimed at any other reader whom might read the post who has the same issue. Best answer will hopefully fix their issues too.

Happy to hear it all worked out in the end 😁

Alright, thanks for the help! For my setup it seems the best route was giving up and choosing G.Skill so I'll choose one of those answers for future readers I guess!

I was as surprised as you, I didn't expect it to be just plug and play at 1.35v. IF 1800 is stable. I can even boot with 1900 but I do get WHEA Bus/Interconnect errors so that's probably just a silicon limitation.
 
Heh I'm running 4x8GB of cheap Hynix DJR at 3800/16 (on 3600/16 Ripjaw V), and actually it will go a little higher with some base clock adjustment. I think this Ryzen sample has a very strong IMC, and of course the parallel topology on my X470 Taichi helps. My IF has actually been stable up to about 1950MHz.
