Memory Recommendations for i9 10850K & Asus Maximus XII Hero

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for memory recommendations for the 10850K & Asus Maximus XII Hero motherboard.

I'm planning to add 32gb of RAM and would like the fastest RAM (and lowest CL) for the above combination.

There are so many to choose from, I get lost trying to decide...

Ripjaws 32 gb DDR4 3600 is a good choice.  See it listed in a good number of systems specs here in member's message signatures.  I chose it based on a store recommendation.

Thanks Frank!

I'll most likely buy from Microcenter just as I did the last time. When you got your recommendation, were you at the store or online via a chat?

I see you have the MSI Z490...just wonder how good that is to overclock.

Great question. I attempted to engage Microcenter remotely, given the pandemic. Response was vague and delayed.  I finally gave up and went to the store, 90 minutes away.  I received excellent service immediately upon arriving at the build-you-own center.  But I was steamed that it was so difficult to simply convey my component selections and merely drive up there to verify and pick up the completed system. 

At the store a build-you-own consultant walked me around and hand pulled my components of choice.  Based on two of his suggestions, I changed my selection of PSU and liquid cooler.  I have been highly satisfied with the result.  Powerful, and unbelievably quiet, which was the point of his suggestion.  My laptop makes more noise than this new system.

I did have to spend $99 extra to have my current pre-3000 series nVidia 1080 Ti placed into the system.  Otherwise the system build guarantee would not have stayed intact.  It changed the build classification from new system to modified system.  I paid the extra to keep the guarantee intact as it would have been void even if I had later installed the 1080 myself.  I just did not want to buy a new video card before the 3000 series release, and 2080 TI's were nowhere to be found anyway.

Bottom line is that I had to make two trips to the store and pay $99 extra.  But my previous system had failed unrecoverably.  I needed to get up and running for management of my personal affairs and simulation, and I wanted to keep the guarantee in force on the new system.  Overall I would do the same again, but I preferred only one trip to the store.

Can't go wrong with any g.skill 32GB DDR4 kit (2x16GB or 4x8GB).  Their customer support is good.  Speed and latency comes down to how much you want to spend, and if it's available where you live (newegg has a very good selection, that's where I bought my kit).  I'm very happy with my 2x16GB 3600 kit, got it running stable at 14-14-14-30 2T at 1.42v (XMP 3600 16-16-16-32 2T 1.35v).

Buy two of these kits: https://amzn.to/2ZZxhRJ .   Its guaranteed samsung b-die at an amazing price.  These kits will do 4800+ mhz with the right cpu and mobo.  Usually the cpu memory controller or the motherboard topology will hurt your top speed more than the ram itself if its good ram.  Dont worry about them not being 4 matched sticks, as long as the speeds are the same they will work fine together.

Don't you think it would just be smarter for the OP to find 2x16 for 32 gb? I've read a few stories over the years where people have ran into problems with OC's because they had 4 sticks.

Normally yes, but on his mobo 4 sticks will be no problem.  The good z490 boards can hit 4000+ with 4 sticks.

Don`t OC your PC first let the ASUS AI run for sometime this will give some idea what your setup can achieve, i built may upgrade in a new case for improved airflow and cooling.

Still not OC`D yet but HT off cores hitting 5.4ghz but i will not go that high for hard OC for 24/7 use.

Don‘t use Asus AI overclocking. It uses ridiculous voltages to achieve the overclock. Either learn how to manually overclock or run it at default clocks.

I don`t but the AI learning tool will run and give a score on your CPU and cooling, in default variable boost it will run according to your PC temps very good cooling will hit the 5.3 no problem. 

Wait till the system has had a good run and bedded in before OC`ing.

The results from Asus AI on my Strix Z490-E motherboard and CPU are total BS. Asus AI suggests VCore in excess of 1.5 volts to get to 5.0 GHz on my 10700K. However, I have it Prime stable at 5.0GHz@1.35 Volts and 5.1GHz@1.4Volts.

The benefits from overclocking are limited anyways these days. So either learn how to do it properly or run the system at stock settings and just be happy. Certainly better than frying the CPU with 1.5 or more volts.

You can hit 5.2ghz with 1.35 volts my MB has only two memory slots less lanes for the CPU to handle.

I picked up two kits of Patriot Viper Steel DDR4 32GB (4 x 8GB) 4400MHz and run it at great 4000 CL17. I love this memory. I can get it to run @ 4400Mhz per kit but if I adjusted it to  4000MHz for all 4 DIMS it's rock solid. I love the price and performance.

Hello Raymond, I see you have my same motherboard the ASUS APEX, I do have  slight slower CPU, I got the I9-10850. I just did not want to spend $880 for 10900 when I could get the i9-10850 for $479. I have 32 GB (2x16) G.Skill Ripjaws DDR4-4000.  I guess I will follow your lead in regards to over clocking the CPU. I got a Huge Therrmaltake case with three very large fans, I added a Corsair H150i triple fan liquid cooler for the CPU. For the time being I am running it with my old 1080TI until the 3090 becomes available. I have three 32 inch 2k monitors.

Let me know how you are progressing with your overclocking,  

Regards,

Juan
