When looking at RAM for the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 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 3200MHz. I've rounded up a few examples of the best DDR4 RAM to get you started.

There's plenty of RAM out there, but we've made sure our suggestions do work out-the-box, and only the best value options are included. The best overall pick is Corsair's Vengeance LPX 16GB Kit, which has everything you need from RAM to put together a capable AMD Ryzen 5 3600X PC build.

Not only do you get a reliable kit that will last many years from a reputable tech brand, but these modules will be able to run at 3200MHz (and beyond if you fancy your luck at overclocking them), which is the recommended speed for the Ryzen 5 3600X. Should you feel like 16GB is no longer enough, simply order a second kit and throw in the additional two modules to double your capacity to 32GB.
