For assistance with your memory upgrade query, it's essential to consider several factors such as compatibility, capacity, and timing. Given your CPU and motherboard specifications, ensure the RAM you choose aligns with supported frequencies and https://aristavision.com/ form factors. Additionally, verifying the maximum memory capacity supported by your motherboard is crucial.

Thank you so much for your detailed answer, i appreciate your time.
ECC just came to my mind and wanted clarification. I've read somewhere on the web the more slots the higher the error rate!

Thank you for the links

I am no expert when it comes to rendering but generally, when it comes to 3d you
benefit more from speed than Error Checking. Most ECC kits are slow by comparison
to standard RAM. That said, if render speed is less important than accuracy, ECC
could be a better option for you. Errors when rendering are rare but can happen.
Unlikely as they are, most recommend against ECC for small scale/personal render
stations. This is largely owing to cost however so if you can find a decent ECC
kit within your budget, It may be worth looking into. If all you want is performance
then getting the fastest kit your board supports (in that capacity) will serve
you better.

Looking at your board's QVL:

ECC: KSM26ED8/32ME (ECC) (Kingston)
The board supports up to 4 modules of this RAM type at 2666

Standard: CMW128GX4M4E3200C16 (Ver3.44) (corsair)
The board supports up to 4 modules at 3200

Your board's RAM QVL: https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/TRX40%20Creator/index.asp#Memory

Make sure to pay attention to the "DIMM Socket Support" column. It will tell you
how many modules are officially tested and known to work on your board. The 2
kits I suggested both support up to 4 modules, some faster kits only support 2.
Typically I don't recommend more than 4 modules on an HEDT system and 2 on a standard
system as it puts more strain on the memory controller and can limit XMP speeds.
It will work but you will often find yourself having to lower the XMP speed a
notch or 2 for stable booting and use.

If you have further questions you can open a support ticket with ASRock here:

ASRock's support staff will be better equipped to give you more specific advice.

Hi guys, I assembled my machine 3/4 years ago.

****
CPU Ryzen Threadripper 3960x

Motherboard ASRock TRX40 creator
AMD - sTRX4 - AMD Ryzen - DDR4-SDRAM - DIMM - 4466, 2133, 2400, 2667, 2933, 3200, 3466, 3600, 3733, 3800, 3866, 4000, 4133, 4200, 4266, 4333, 4400, 4533, 4600, 4666 (90-MXBB70-A0UAYZ)

GPU rtx 2060 supper
RAM Kingston HyperX Predator RGB (4x8GB) / 3200MHz
Corsair RMx Series RM1000x 1000W
****

As you see i used to work with Kingston HyperX Predator 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz over 3 years was ok for medium render size.

I have a medium sized residential project 500sqm with forest (3d modeling + animation) I want making a RAM upgrade to my system and I'm looking for a 128GB kit.

1-Shall i go with 3200MHz or higher / Rendering speed and efficiency.
2- Does it make any big difference going for ECC RAM or non ECC RAM?
3- i woud like some suggestion or recomandetion please for 128gb kit!!
4- Do you know for some other options/brands that I should consider?
My budget around 400-450 euro

Thank you so much.
