Hi all, after sorting out the issue with my Corsair RAM I am now looking at trying the following :
Patriot Viper Steel DDR4 4400
Has anyone had any dealings with this RAM and do you know if it will work with the CH6 HERO motherboard with a Ryzen 9 3900x fitted?
Cheers

It's Samsung B-die or at least it should be. I have two kits of DDR4 4000 model running at 3000 in 4x8GB and they are both Samsung B-die. You very likely won't be able to use it higher than 3833MT/s with 2x8GB, because of Ryzen 3000 memory controller limits and it almost makes no sense to use it past 3600-3733MT/s anyway. If you want the full speed you will need an Intel system or wait for Ryzen 4000 and hope you can have higher speeds. Don't use it at the spec'ed 1.45v, you shouldn't need more than 1.35v at 3866MT/s.
