New 3700X setup quard or dual channel ram 3600mhz

I'm going to build a new Ryzen setup. But have come to doubt the memory and what is possible. 

I use my computer for 3D rendering/gaming so need 32 GB, and would like to run quard channel 4x8

My build will be my old Ryzen 3700X

A new MSI MEG X570 Unify

 

Kingston HyperX Predator DDR4-3600 C17 QC 32GB -Model HX436C17PB4K4/32

Timing CL17 (17-19-19)

I have checked the QVL list at AMD and MSI. And the Ram is supported by both. But many say it is not possible because Ryzen is locked to 2733mhz on Quard instead of 3200+mhz in dual

The question basically is..

Will i be able to run at 3600Mhz  in Quad, or is i limit, and need to be dual insted?

Best regards.

The 3700X only has a dual channel memory controller, but I think you actually mean you want to use all 4 memory slots, in which the answer is yes, the 3700X can do 3200mhz+ with 4 memory modules.

Thanks for the answer mr.

Of course that's what I meant by 4 modules.

If you try to go over 3200MHz, you will probably need to use this:

You can read this: https://community.amd.com/message/2904355 
There are links to some good videos about overclocking RAM on Ryzen.

Re: New 3700X setup quard or dual channel ram 3600mhz

Remember though, due to the way Ryzen 3000 series processors operate thanks to the dedicated I/O chip, there is negligible difference between 3200 CL14 and 3600 CL17, a fraction of one percent, so save yourself some money and get some 3200 CL14.
