Best RAM for AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X Windows Central 2020
If you need performance, you’ll likely be choosing from AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper family of CPUs. The Threadripper 3960X is an insane processor, rocking 24 cores and 48 threads, but you’ll need some fast RAM to really allow the processor to take flight. We’ve rounded up some fine examples.
If we were to make a suggestion…
When choosing RAM for a new third-gen Ryzen Threadripper CPU, you need to go fast. Make sure the module kit you buy has a clock speed of at least 3,200MHz. Keep in mind latency ratings, too, as these can affect overall memory performance. Also make sure you have a compatible motherboard while you’re at it. There are some solid options out there, but you’ll be well equipped with one of our suggestions.
We continue to recommend Corsair’s Vengeance LPX 16GB Kit because it really is an excellent value RAM kit and works well with the Ryzen Threadripper 3960X at 3200MHz. It’s also affordable. Who wouldn’t want to save a little after spending so much on the CPU?
Should you want some fancy, premium-looking RAM, the G.SKILL TridentZ kits are genuinely unique with colorful designs and plenty of RGB lighting. The one we’ve highlighted in this collection also rocks a clock speed of 3,200MHz and would pair up well with the Threadripper.
