  1. It is compatible but Ryzen performs better with higher RAM and kits from 2666 and above are recommended for better performance, specially GSKill units with Samsung B die... https://www.toptengamer.com/best-ram-amd-ryzen-5-7-cpu/
    For more clarity, check your motherboard memory QVL list on support page.

  2. Yeah but the specific motherboard that I own (Gigabyte GA-AB350-GAMING rev.1) doesn't actually support it! What's up with that?

    Sometimes all models are not covered on QVL list but ideally it should work. But the flip side is, if it doesnt, the motherboard cannot be questioned as by default the QVL disclaimer stands above individual claims. Only way, is to test it and establish yourself. Then again, its not recommended for better compatibility support.

  4. Yeah, I'm asking because I own that ram kit and on another thread that I posted, a guy told me that the reason my games crash is because the ram kit that I own isn't supported by the motherboard.

  5. It can happen at times. In that case you have to test with a kit which is part of the QVL list and eliminate that possibility.
    The QVL list contains only the units tested by the manufacturer. But that doesnt mean a kit outside the list should not work.
