Hey there.

I'm planning on buying 5900x and have a x570 Tomahawk on the way for my new all AMD build. I've seen that they recommend 4000mhz memory for the new chips and was wondering what I could get away with when buying memory, I was thinking of some gskill something or other dual channel 3600mhz, or maybe crucial ballistix.. but I don't know enough about RAM to make a decision.
I'm building this computer for gaming and animation, 3D modeling etc.
Would it be advised to get 4000mhz memory or just overclock?

Thanks for the help!

You might want to hold off on a purchase until after release and some reviews come out. At this point all we have is rumour.
