  • X470 & F4-3200C14D-32GTZ

    I'm going to buy a ryzen system with a gigabyte x470 aorus gaming7, i would like to use this gskill kit F4-3200C14D-32GTZ, 2x16gb, it's easy for me to buy here in italy, but i've seen that this kit it's not listed in gigabyte qvl, i need some advice, i could get some problems? I've seen a lot of people using in x370 systems, and someone in an asus ch x470, with manual settings.

    Thanks a lot

    This is not a kit you will find on G.SKILLs QVL or someone official would recommend for your mainboard. However it is a popular kit for AM4 builds among enthusiasts regardless. It usually needs manual settings to reach DDR4-3200 on AM4. So the actual Vdimm needed might be a bit higher and it requires manual adjustment of sub-timings and/or some AMD specific settings.

    So would you rather have a plug and play experience or are you comfortable with manual testing and tweaking?

      Thanks a lot for the answer,

      i'm used to manual configurations, so it will not be a problem, but i need to be sure that the kit will work in some way, at least at 3200, thanks again for your clarification

        It will work at default settings, so DDR4-2133 CL15 1.2V.

        To reach DDR4-3200 you will very likely need manual settings, since XMP-Auto is not guaranteed to work. If you invest enough time and are either willing to raise Vdimm above 1.35V or relax timings a bit, then DDR4-3200 should be pretty safe to reach on any decent AM4 board. I don't have personal experience with your X470 Gaming7 and so can't comment on how good of a memclocker it is (but probably not too far behind the Crosshairs).

          That kit will work fine on the X470 Gaming 7. You will want 1.38v for the RAM, set the first 4 timings manually, set the RAM multiplier to 32, and you will be good to go. Unlike most other X370/X470 motherboards, Gigabyte boards seem to be much more friendly with RAM not on the tested list.
