might be doing a build soon and concerned about AMD mobo/DDR4 compatibility. I recall all the articles I read last year about BIOS bla bla bla ... so where is this at today? Do I need to research for 2 days to find what specific DDR4 is compatible with which specific mobo and which specific MFG, etc or what?

Nope they're very relaxed now. Even Zen+ 12nm was pretty lax. I ran 3600 at 3200 stock no tweaks no fuss just XMP on a 2600 mitx.

Best is check qvl or ask users if you're worried. Just aim for two sticks unless you get the only t-topology board in existence.

Buildzoid does a lot of the work for us.
Hopefully he covered the board you want.

Ram as ^ isn't the nightmare from 2 years ago.
It's like waiting for your 2019 Ford explorer to roll over bc the old ones did.

I don't blame you, Intel did have a pretty significant advantage for the last few generations. I was surprised to see AMD's popularity even after 5 years of being away.

Goes to show you all the years "fanboy" was thrown around at Intel users wasn't really accurate. I've always been a much bigger fan of superior products than a brand. Last AMD was an Athlon X2 and went to Intel after that up until my current setup with a 3900x

I run 3 Ryzen setups and none of my ram is on anybody's QVC list .. the only ram I have issue with runs fine with a 2200g (2 x 16Gb PC3000 I used to run in my old 7700k setup)but I had to dial it back to 2666 when paired with my old 2700x on the same mobo.

Sucker born every min, its capitalism folks. I see GPU posting for well over depreciated price and people still buy high.
