Need help choosing compatible AM4 motherboard with RAM


Aug 30, 2017

I'm building a new pc for gaming and light modding, editing. I have chosen already:
Ryzen 5 1600
Most likely GTX 1060 6gb
Fractal Design Define R5

I want to buy this RAM: since it's a lot cheaper than corsair for example. I have been hearing that Ryzen really loves 3000mhz RAM or higher.

The problem is though, I can't seem to find a motherboard that properly supports this RAM at 3000mhz, and I really don't want to put down more money for speeds which won't happen. So, any motherboard suggestions and/or other RAM suggestions? It's a budget build so I don't need the most expensive MB, many features I won't even use.

Thanks beforehand.

EDIT: I also found out the Ryzen 1600 apparantly doesn't even support 3000 mhz? It's on the official page. Any help on that?
