Now try 4 sticks of that stuff and see if you can run at XMP.

Still rocking my TridentZ Neo kit won from Guru3D winter contest 2020. Incredible DDR4! Doubt i'll try DDR5 anytime soon given it's not compatible with x570. RGB seems toned down here in comparison.

haven't you seen all my rants ? it's a giant scandal the big lie currently by everyone including youtubers that just don't want to say the words, JayzTwoCents even made a video about ddr5 problems he's not dumb he knows 2 sticks works fine not 4 but still he didn't dare say it : Z690 DOES NOT SUPPORT 4 STICKS period....each stick is two channels so you're trying to jam 8 channels into a 4 channel chipset-cpu combo it does not work intel is lying asus asrock msi etc...are all lying with their 4 slots, if AMD does not come up with 8 channels for their next hardware they are going to get massive backlash from people who use their computer to work being able to boot with extreme overclock settings to run slowly is not "working" check motherboard memory QVL the 4 sticks sections are empty or run slower than the base ddr5 4800Mhz considering DDR5 scales a lot with Mhz this is a giant no unlike AMD X570 which honestly doesn't care much a TRX40 AMD threadripper motherboard you can boot with 8 different brand/type/models sticks one in each of the 8 memory slots and it boots and is perfectly stable as long as you sync them all to the slowest stick I know I tried myself so all that "incompatiblity" "kits not meant to work together" and all that other crap you read about DDR5 is either bs or unacceptable as a sold product Buildzoid from actually hardcore overclocking warned us all before he even had a z690 just reading specs and thinking about it he said he didn't understood why they made 4 slots motherboards there was no point and he was right related to this review...I now tried 4 different ddr5 memory kits 3 corsair and 1 gskill they all work at their advertised speeds with 2 sticks corsair are crap tough even the sk hynix ones ocing the cpu is super instable, motherboards takes 3min to boot for no reason when G.Skill 6000Mhz F5-6000U3636E16GX2-TZ5K are plug and play and stable with 3 cores at 5.5Ghz and allcores at 5.2Ghz

Interesting - I wonder why there's no coverage of this? It certainly impacts purchasing decisions - if you're thinking "I can start with 32 gigs, but I'll need 64 soon enough" and you have to buy a 64 kit instead of another 32.

z690 does support 4 sticks, but there are caveats involving the ranks per dimm and clock rate limitations to mitigate bus noise DDR5 should have been skipped for 6 and its PAM4 https://i.imgur.com/ELmQwfT.png

Try VENGEANCEĀ® 64GB (4x16GB) DDR5 DRAM 4400MHz C36 Memory Kit , and it works.... Or buy 5200 2x32GB kit. 2x 32GB Dell hynix is working at 6000mhz šŸ˜‰

I was thinking of building a new PC when AMD releases their DDR5 compatible CPUs. But those prices and performance gains don't really make it appealing at all. I'll be sticking to my 3700x/5700xt for some time I think.

I really doubt there's any reason to upgrade to anything from that anytime soon - maybe you could spill on a 5800X3D or something, but it'd probably only net you minor gains at 1080p if you even use that resolution. I feel that any modern title GPU limits me on the 5700XT.

I'm on a Gigabyte X370 MB, so they'd have to release a BIOS for that. But I don't really care, my work is done without problems, and since I'm on a 2560x1080 monitor, the 5700XT is enough for gaming. I'm not an FPS freak, smooth gaming is what I care for.
