So i am using a b550 board and a 5800x, but there is no option for b550 or ryzen 4th gen in the dram calculator. What options do i use?
 
ryzen is particularly picky about ram.
Not all DDR4 ram will work properly.
Exercise due diligence and buy only compatible ram kits.

One place to check is your motherboards web site.
Look for the ram QVL list. It lists all of the ram kits that have been tested with that particular motherboard.
Sometimes the QVL list is not updated after the motherboard is released.
For more current info, go to a ram vendor's web site and access their ram selection configurator.
Enter your motherboard, and you will get a list of compatible ram kits.
Sometimes, the model of cpu you plan on using is relevant.

I am a bit jaded about overclocking ram.
Ram is binned, and the better chips are used in faster ram that can be sold at a higher price. You may get lucky, but do not count on it.
Buy the ram speed you need up front.
