That is, if given the RAM is actually built to reach those speeds. You can't OC e.g 3600 Mhz RAM to 5100 Mhz. For one, there is no such XMP option in the BIOS and for two, RAM will die long before you'll ever reach 5100 Mhz frequency. Most likely, OC won't hold and reverts back to default speeds.Well, XMP mode enables everything up to 5100 MHz
XMP travels with the RAM sticks, and not with MoBo.
Not quite.Though 3600 MHz is said to be the "optimal" speed for 5600X, I believe.
3600 Mhz is the fastest cost effective speed. Going with any faster RAM, greatly diminishes the cost vs performance gain ratio.
Back in the day, when Intel 6th gen was latest, highest cost effective frequency was 3000 Mhz. Now, for Intel, it's 3200 Mhz. When speaking about DDR4 RAM.
DDR5 RAM frequency is double or even tripe of DDR4, while also costing a fortune.
Fastest optimal for 5600X would be 3200 Mhz, since 3600 Mhz is overclocked frequency. Also, CPU itself can use up to 3200 Mhz speeds. The extra 400 Mhz is utilized by MoBo and other components.
For example, my i5-6600K uses RAM speed as 2133 Mhz. I have 3000 Mhz RAM. When looking on CPU perspective, any faster RAM than 2133 Mhz, wouldn't be needed nor optimal. For CPU alone. But since there are other hardware that uses RAM as well, the 3000 Mhz RAM does help.
Most cases are like so, where case itself can be good but is combined with poor fans. Those cheap fans cost case manufacturers little, if any at all. So, they usually include them. You can look it as bloatware, that you get for free when buying prebuilt PC with OS installed.That means that Meshify 2 is a pretty good case with bad fans, sadly!
