hi guys, im struggling to choose which ram to buy,
im gonna upgrade to this specs in the near future:
CPU: 3700x
GPU: 2070super
mobo: MSI MPG x570 Gaming Edge wifi
psu: be quiet straight power 11 750w

use case would be playing and streaming games

ram:
im unsure what to get, as im a pc noobie especially (after reading a few weeks) when it comes to ram
i know speed and cl are what matters, but i have concerns about certain brands. some seem to make simply to good deals...
any help and knowhow is much appreciated

link to german amazon page:
https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01K7V0DRG/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3JWKAKR8XB7XF&psc=1
it advertises from a brand called"Patriot Viper"
DDR 3733mhz and the CL is either 15-15-15-36 or 17-21-21-41 for 95€
does that seem legit?
should i consider a different brand/kit ? if so which ones to look for
3200 or 3600 ?

is that compatible with the Mobo that i picked out? ( havent bought yet)
i would like to stay around 90-115€ for RAM

thanks for every help

glad to see that video, immediately changing mobo :p
guess ill go with the ASUS TUF then, or would you rather recommend the Aorus Elite ?

i guess i'll go with this RAM instead,

for 104€ ( saw some people report issues reaching the advertised speed on the patriot viper ones )
Whichever you prefer, really. I the only brand I have any loyalty to at the moment is Noctua, and they don't make motherboards.

That speed issue was a motherboard limitation, if I recall correctly. Some B and A series mobos couldn't OC higher than 2933mhz for Ryzen 1000 and 2000.
