So i was thinking about upgrading my current PC for a long time now
My current build :
CPU : Intel i-7 2600k
Cooler : Hyper 212 Evo
Case : Cooler Master HAF 912
MOBO : G1 Sniper 3 (rev 1.0)
PSU: Cougar 1200 W
GPU : MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X (6GB)
RAM : 8 GB (2x4) DDr3


What i'm planning on upgrading are the CPU,Memory and Motherboard, leaving the GPU, Cooler, Case and PSU

New CPU : Ryzen 5 3600
New MOBO: Steel Legend X570-ASRock (https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/X570 Steel Legend/index.asp#Overview )
New RAM : either F4-3600C16D-16GVKC (Ripjaws V DDR4-3600MHz CL16-19-19-39 1.35V 16GB (2x8GB) )>>https://www.gskill.com/qvl/165/184/1562831134/F4-3600C16D-16GVKC-Qvl
or F4-3200C16D-16GTZKW (Trident Z DDR4-3200MHz CL16-18-18-38 1.35V 16GB (2x8GB)>>https://www.gskill.com/qvl/165/168/1536218185/F4-3200C16D-16GTZKW-Qvl

My issue now is that i don't know if those Ram modules are compatible with my MOBO or not because the TridentZ for example states in the QVL that the Steel Legend is compatible, however when you check the MoBO's QVL, there nothing about both of these Ram types
The only thing that gave me hope is that PCPartpicker says it's compatible lol.
If anyone happens to have a similar build or know if they are compatible or not please let me know.
 
mainboard vendors don't test every single stick of RAM. But 3200MHzC16 is something any x570 should drive with ease and I have never seen any x570 board not running RAM like that.
that being said, you might wanna opt for an Asus TUF or Gigabyte Elite. Not convinced by the AsRock x570 lineup for the associated price tag if I'm honest.

PSU, case, GPU will be compatible, cooler will need an AM4 bracket if it didn't come with one

The thing is I live in egypt so the prices are kinda diffrent.
The Asrock board is actually cheaper than both the elite and tuf.


My cooler came with the adjustable back plate and I saw a video of someone using it on an Am4 board without buying something extra >>

What about the 3600 memory would that work too ?
And If you had any experience with both of those modules please let me know
 
ah I see. it's fine when it's cheaper.

I think it depends on the revision of your cooler.

as for the memory: both, Trident Z & Ripjaws V are absolute mainstream RAM that you can find in any other build.
3600 puts a bit more stress on the RAM controller, I don't know how AsRock implemented the RAM support though --- AsRock isn't particularly popular due to their price/performance ratio.
but 3600MHz isn't overly hard to run on a x570 board, so you'll probably be fine
