Hi everyone
I'm starting a new build and cannot find what ram is compatible with this mobo.
I looked on the MSI website but when putting in the manufacturer codes from overclockers it does not list them, and I do not understand the different ram names.
I am going to run a Ryzen 5600x, and was looking for either 3200mhz or 3600mhz. I'm only looking to game on it so was thinking 16GB would be enough, and I'm looking to spend up to about £160.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated as I don't want to buy RAM and then find it doesn't work.

Just before Christmas I helped a friend of mine built a system around this board, and he used Patriot Viper 4 Steel Series 32GB (2x 16GB) 3600MHz (PVS432G360C8K) and it appears to run fine, I'm not sure if he left the bios at stock, or enabled the XMP settings, obviously this kit comes in 16/32/64 GB options, and can fluctuate in price.

I found the Patriot Viper Steels worked fine in two DIMM configurations, but have issues with 4 DIMM.

Currently I have 4x8GB 4000MHz Viper Steels at 3733 and they're working very well.

Wouldn't bother with the DARK PRO stuff from OCUK unless you like spending hours trying to fettle stability. HAd 2 boards and nothing but issues with it when gaming. with Win64 shipping errors in more than one game. Only stable at 2400Mhz still after a year. Thought it was my original cheap x570 board
