What DDR4 does anyone use??

Post #1 by Phill » Sun Oct 18, 2015 11:45 pm

I've recently been bullied into swapping out one of my Asus Rampage Extreme boards for a Hero 7 Z170 board and I was wondering what anyone was using for DDR4?

I've had a sweet spot for Gskill ram for a while now (their TridentX stuff has been brilliant!) but I remember a while ago, that Kingston DDR4 was a good buy, but I was wondering if that might have changed??

I was also hoping to try and make things as future proof as possible and possibly get a quad channel kit for X99 testing as well, but I also saw a post on the forum that showed 4 sticks of ram giving a big improvement in a bench, I think it was XTU?

As always everyone's help is muchly appreciated :)

Ripjaws V 3466C11. Works well on X99 as well but not had time to compare against hynix. Alternate have quad kits in stock but not many.

If you look around the net you will see a lot of people having difficulties on the Z170 platform as a lot of memory for the X99 platform is on the QVL list. if you are up to playing with voltages and timing you can most kits to work.
I have a Hero and initially had a Hynix kit from my X99 installed, it wouldn't boot at XMP settings 300mhz but booted at 2933 without issue, I now have several kits of Ripjaw V's which work great and just for fun I purchased 2 kits of Trident Z 4000mhz kits, which I have been running at 3866mhz, I haven't delved to deep into it yet but my suggestion would be stick to either of the GSkill kits, the V series if you want to also use them on X99, they perform very well on both platforms

I have the same issues with an X99 MFR kit, XMP 3000 does not work on Z170, but 3066 and 2933 work flawlessly.

I've also got some of those RipJaws V modules from Doug which are impressive for sure. I just need another set to make XTU really fly.
