B450M S2H compatible ram


New Member
planing to buy ryzen 5 3600. I was offered this mboard with CMK16GX4M2E3200C16 ram of corsair.
i notice this ram is not on the support list of the motherboard. https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B450M-S2H-rev-10/support#support-dl-driver

i think the problem is with the E. im not sure what it means if someone can explain?

might be something to do with ecc: (from motherboard Specification)

  1. Support for ECC Un-buffered DIMM 1Rx8/2Rx8 memory modules (operate in non-ECC mode)
  2. Support for non-ECC Un-buffered DIMM 1Rx8/2Rx8/1Rx16 memory modules
  3. Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules
what the E mean? and will this work together?

Don't worry too much about the QVL list for memory. They won't test each and every model of ram on every motherboard. Just get good quality ram and you should be fine.

The RAM looks fine to me. There's no ECC on it or anything that otherwise stands out as a potential issue.
