Alright. I know this has been covered on the forum somewhere, on youtube, and I've seen the AMD chart. But I want a simple answer. I will NOT be overclocking the 3950x ( I may even go with the 3900 or 3700, haven't decided yet) I usually just set an XMP profile and leave it alone. Price isn't a concern.

3600 (16-19-19-39)
or
3200 (14-14-14-34)

I run 3733 ram, myself, with my 3700x. I chose it specifically because of price, and AMD's initial slides saying 3733 was max speed, for 1:1 ratio. Oddly, I still had to make some changes, to get it to work as intended, due to the odd CL, and speed.
