    Great design with large heatsinks and fits well together in the motherboard. I was able to benchmark this on UserBenchmark to get real world results at 3200 MHz (RAM shows up under: PNY 8GBF1X08QFHH36-135-K 4x8GB) and it performed at 104% against the benchmark and in the top 10% of RAM tested in UB's database. Multi Core Test: Read 40.0 GB/s, Write 39.5 GB/s, Mixed 32.2 GB/s, Average 37.2 GB/s Single Core Test: Read 21.0 GB/s, Write 42.5 GB/s, Mixed 29.8 GB/s, Average: 31.1 GB/s Latency: 55 ns While there are cheaper options out there, these perform exceptionally well against other 3200 Mhz DDR4 RAM

    Best off the shelf DRAM for Ryzen CPU

    I had tried nearly a dozen kits of DDR4 ram after building my Ryzen machine, and one after one they either failed to boot or would not go past the basic 2133MHz speed. This kit, along with other PNY ram has been the most reliable and consistent when it comes to overclocking (or atleast achieving the labelled speed). The default timings for 3200MHz are CL16-18-18-18-54 1T. I found the sweet spot at 3066MHz with even tighter timings! Yay infinity fabric. This ram alone boosted the performance of my CPU >10% in benchmarks and everyday scenarios. I'm looking at buying another kit to double my ram, but Ryzen gets finnecky with four sticks rather than two.

    I put this ram in a new Crosshair VI Hero mobo with Ryzen 2700x processor, Samsing Evo 850, and 850 watt gold rated PSU. I booted it up, setup everything in the bios and upon entering windows 10 I get max 5 minutes before system hangs. tried different timings, tried just 1 chip, no go. Friend lets me use his Trident Z 3200MHz CL14 ram from his system to test my system and bam, everything ran as expected. Needless to say I am returning these and purchasing Trident Z's.

    This is my first RAM upgrade since I built my computer some years back, and it has made a difference in the speed of my games. I previously only had 8 gbs, and didn’t think doubling that would make a difference. It did.

    I bought these to speed up my PC but since Acer sold me a bad pc, a brand new PC, they we no help. They work just fine it takes the Acer time to catch up. I thought an I7 7th gen would be fast, I was wrong.

    The MSI board identified the speed and settings from the start. Look forward to testing alternate parameter configurations. Passed all tests and running three weeks with no issues.

    It isn’t the cheapest or most expensive ram out there, but it works for what it is. I have had no issues installation was a breeze and working like a charm since I got it.

    This RAM is amazing, video editing is so much faster and only uses about half the memory with clips at 1080p 60fps
