B450 Tomahawk & Ryzen 5 2600x What RAM?

Jump to solution

First of all hello to everybody around.
Here we go
Few days ago I've decided to build a new PC.
Personally i haven't used AMD ever so I've decided to give it a chance both for CPU and GPU hope i don't regret the GPU part.
So my choice so far in my budget range goes like this:
Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600x

GPU:  GIGABYTE Radeon RX 580 Gaming 8GB GDDR5 256bit PCIe (GV-RX580GAMING-8GD)


So my question is

Since I'm not planning to overclock or what so ever what ram should i pick to be able just to put all things together and not to worry about compatibility.

On MSI page all i found was
Supports 1866/ 2133/ 2400/ 2667Mhz (by JEDEC) 
Supports 2667/ 2800/ 2933/ 3000/ 3066/ 3200/ 3466 MHz (by A-XMP OC MODE) 

And thats for the B450 Mortar Board.
For the Tomahawk one there's only one line about ram frequency:

Supports DDR4 Memory, up to 3466(OC) MHz

 

So please guys help me here what kind of ram shall i pick and which brand?
Going for 2x8gb.

Gskill 2933Mhz RAM works with no issues and is made for the AMD ryzen platform, the processor supports up to 2933 Mhz ram, if you go above your overclocking wich may give bad results, you also need to keep in mind that OC reduces the lifespan of the components.

Thank you guys for the answers
I guess the QVL for b450 tomahawk + ryzen5 2600x is not updated.
Since the G Skill ram that you gave link to is not shown as supported.

"F4-3200C14D-16GFX"

G.Skill Flare RAM is guaranteed compatible with all Ryzen systems. It's also one of the best kits due to the low timings of 14-14-14-34.
