For our tests, we used our Test Rig which consists of an ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X motherboard, along with an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X and a Zotac GeForce GTX 2080 AMP Extreme Core (8GB GDDR6) graphics card.
* ALL tests are conducted at specified default speeds and settings.
|CPU||AMD Ryzen 7 3700X @ 3.6GHz / Turbo boost 4.4GHz|
|Cooling||Noctua U9S CPU cooler|
|Motherboard||ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X|
|Ram||Adata XPG Spectrix D60G RGB DDR4-3600 16GB Memory Kit|
|XMP 2.0 profiles||Memory timings : 16-18-18-36 @1.35v (2x8GB)|
|SSD||Adata SX 7000 – 240GB PCIE M.2|
|VGA card||Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 AMP Extreme Core (8GB GDDR6)|
No issues with installation. Just make sure the notch on the memory modules are aligned to the DIMMs lots on the motherboard. The RGB lighting effects don’t kick-in immediately when you turn on the system … there’s a delay of around 5 seconds.
We used the ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X motherboard for our tests. But unfortunately, we couldn’t fully run the memory modules at the full speed of DDR4-3600 in XMP mode. It’s not the fault of the ram, but more likely something to do with the motherboard. A lot of AMD motherboards are quite sensitive when it comes to memory timings. In the end, we managed to run the memory modules at DDR4-2667. All other settings were left untouched on AUTO.
CPU-Z and SPD Information
CPU-Z reports the DRAM frequency at 1333MHz which is fine for the default speed of DDR4-2667. But I couldn’t get to run at DDR4-3600. I guess it’s a compatibility issue between the motherboard and the memory modules.
