    Hi all

    Looking to buy some RAM for my Ryzen 1200 bundle i got from OCUK, Will the 1200 benefit from 3000mhz+ RAM or will i be better saving money and getting slower speeds?

    Also whats the difference between single channel and dual channel?

    Cheers

    Ryzen gets a good boost from higher speed memory. Go for 3000+, the Teamgroup stuff is good.

    You will want a dual channel kit.

    The entire Ryzen range benefits from faster memory. Depending on the application it can be quite a significant difference. So certainly worth it. Especially with the difference in price between 2400 and 3000 being almost nothing at the moment!
