SPEED: Processor: Ryzen 7 7700X and Memory Kingston Fury Beast DDR5

I am selecting components to build up a PC and wondering if the max memory speed of processor (5200 Mhz for the Ryzen 7 7700X) should be the max speed to select the memory.

In otherword should I buy Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 5200 or 5600 Mhz?

No plan to do overclocking.

Mother board: ASUS TUF GAMING B650 PLUS WIFI with memory speed up to 6400 Mhz

Hello, @esaussol Welcome to Red Team! 

Kingston is one of our supported partners memory manufacturers. Great choice! 

To answer your question, after reviewing the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X specs page, you should purchase the Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 5200 as the CPU supports:

Max Memory Speed:

2x1R  DDR5-5200
2x2R  DDR5-5200
4x1R  DDR5-3600
4x2R  DDR5-3600
Let us know if you have any more questions! Enjoy building your new PC!

5200 is the max quaranteed speed, but CPU should be able to do 6000, which does improve performance somewhat. I wanted a lot of memory, so got 64 gigs of 5200 MHz. I doubt faster memory would have made much difference.


Wow! You got 64GB!? I never had a PC with that much memory. I have to ask, how long does your PC take to load/launch your average app? And say, any modern game(s)? Seconds?

Yes, the CPU should be able to do 6000...should...

I am running Corsair CMH32X5M2B6000Z30K which is AMD expo memory that I can highly recommend it's timings are quite tight too at 30 - 36 -36 - 76 @ 1.4V 6000Mhz

I brought mine of Amazon and had to wait for it to arrive in New Zealand but it was a matter of plugging it in selecting EXPO and saving the settings to BIOS and there I was running with memory at 6000Mhz.
