What customers say about "Memory"
ASRock X399 Taichi ATX AMD Motherboard
  • It'll boot with 7 sticks of the ram without any problems.
  • My ram is the 4X8G Adata 2800MHz XPG. Not officially supported, but runs at 2666 with xmp.
  • With 4 sticks of G.Skill Trident Z 3200MHz C16 everything works well.
  • I've had trouble getting my 3200mhz ram above 2800mhz.
  • I went with the Corsair 2933MHz RBB 128GB set listed on there. It turns out, it didn't work.

  • Memory worked out of the box after setting XMP to use correct SPD profile.
  • Was looking for a standard ATX board for Threadripper. Good memory speed.
