When looking at RAM for the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 CPU, you’ll want to pay attention to the speeds of each module and the capacity. The sweet spot right now for the processor is at least a kit of 16GB RAM clocked at 3000MHz. I’ve rounded up a few examples to get you started.
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB Kit
Ryzen processors love plenty of RAM to play with and this 16GB kit (two 8GB modules) is perfect for a gaming or light productivity PC. You’ve got enough speed to make your programs and games run quickly, and enough capacity to run even more demanding apps.
Patriot Memory VIPER 4 16GB Kit
You don’t have to spend countless hundreds on RAM to accompany your new Ryzen 5 2600 CPU. This 16GB kit from Patriot is tied with Corsair in affordability scoring, but you won’t be losing much in terms of performance. It has the same 3000MHz speeds and other much-needed features.
