I am posting this as an continuation of a conversation that started in the Z390 Motherboard main sticky - Actual start of this memory topic
Visit that thread in the link above to get caught up to this point
I had posted links to two videos put out by Buildzoid where he was talking about what to look for when making your DDR4 buying decisions and the second delved more into the settings when overclocking and what some of them did:
DDR4 Overclocking/Buying absolute basics
Some RAM Bandwidth vs frequency and timings data...
Unfortunately for me Buildzoid put those out after I had made my memory purchase for the system I was building (shameless plug
This is the memory Kit I bought - F4-3733C17Q-32GTZR
Going by the calculation Buildzoid proposes at about the 16min mark in the first video My kit comes out at a whopping 219
If I had known that and looked at the numbers from the kits available at the time I would have probably gotten the F4-3200C14Q-32GTZR
which nets 228 instead.
comes out to be 235 and the F4-4133C17Q-32GTZR
only comes out at 243, but still an improvement.
The memory I used for the above was taken from this page on the G.Skill website - G.S Link
I had skipped over the 3466 and 3600 modules because their timings were too loose and the numbers were crap
Edit note: Found my original calculation for the 3200 / 14 was incorrect in my notes - fixed the incorrect numbers and had to change up my statements / thoughts
