Question, I have a Ryzen 5 5600x CPU & an ASUS mobo with the latest BIOS. AMD claims that the 5000x series CPU's support up to 3200MHz RAM. I just purchased 2x8GB sticks at 3600MHz. The mobo accepts up to 4400MHz so I know that I'm good on that aspect. If I enable D.O.C.P. and set the frequency of the RAM to 3600MHz, will my system run 100% stable? I've read online that the "sweet" spot for Ryzen 5000 series CPU's is (depending on where you look) between 3600 or 4000MHz. So, from that info, I would assume that my system will be fine. However, I want to of course make SURE that if I set my RAM to the proper XMP/DOCP profile of 3600 - that it doesn't mess anything up in my brand newly built gaming PC that I put a good amount of money in . I realize that I can gradually increase the RAM speed in the BIOS and then experiment, but from your experiences - or other PC tech people that you have tapped the knowledge of - do any of you believe that a system like mine will be "solid" with the 3600MHz setting? Thanks!!
