Would the ryzen 5 3600X support 3600mhz ram c17 G.skill Tridentz Rgb?

The mobo thatbwill be paired with is going to be an X470 Gaming f and i saw that that mothervoard supports 3600mhz but my question now if its going to handle it

so really? i have seen that over ceretains velocity the performance increase considerably , check here, or i didnt read it well ? because im not an expert but i think that that does mean that it will have more performance, yes?
Higher Latency = Lower Performance.
So that charts shows that even at 4400 MHz the Latency is higher than at 3733 MHZ, therefore the performance is lower.
So for best performance 3600 or 3733 MHZ RAM is best.

From your MB's QVL the only G.Skill Kit that is guaranteed to run at 3600 MHZ on your MB is this one:
F4-3600C18D-16GTZRX

No absolute guarantees, but it should. You should not exceed 3600Mhz from what I have read, that forces the infinity fabric to drop down to half the speed of the memory, and as of yet this isn't something you can change.

if i use the other kit that i mentioned the G.Skill 3600mhz c17 would it work ? or the frequencies may be reduced? , also i saw that if its possible when i buy a ram, to avoid the SK hynix chipsets

^ A different 3600 MHz kit Might work at 3600 MHz BUT no other kit is guaranteed to run at 3600 MHZ except the kit I listed.
Personally I would just buy that exact kit if you want to run it at 3600 MHz without having to spend a lot of time playing with manual RAM timings in the BIOS.
And even if you do use manual timings other kits may end up only being able to run at lower speeds.

ok thanks, but cant find that kit on amazon :/
 
Higher frequency memory IMO is more aplicable to really high core count processors like the R9 3900x, as the additional bandwidth is necessary for all of those cores interconnect with dual channel memory. You're better off purchasing a solid 3200mhz 2 x 8gb kit that has 14ms cas latency and will be more than adequate amount of bandwidth for the 3600x.

Honestly that F4-3600C17D-16GTZR will probably work fine at 3600 MHz with that MB.
And that is definitely a MB I would consider if I was looking for an X470 MB, it seems to be a Very good board from what I have read.
I use a similar (non-X) kit on my MB (see my signature) and it works great for me.
Asus lists this 3466 MHz kit on it's QVL:
F4-3466C16D-16GSXW
https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232489

But SgtScream makes an excellent point.
You might well be better off getting a c14 (Samsung B Die) 3200 MHz kit (which might even OC to a higher speed).
Any of these C14 3200 Mhz kits should work:

having tight timings would increase my performance? +fps?
