Looking to build an i9-9900X system. According to Intel, RAM should be DDR4-2666 (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/processors/core/x-series/i9-9900x.html).
I never overclock.
The problem with the RAM vendors is, they do not advertise the real (SPD) frequency, which is much lower than the one advertised. For example, I could find RAM advertised to run at 3200, but according to the manufacturer specification, SPD frequency is as low as 2133. Instead, higher frequencies are stored in XMP profiles, but that's a cheat because it basically means overclocking (also, the voltage is higher than 1.2V)
So is there any RAM brand that really runs at 2666, by SPD?
The closest I could find is some Kingston memory that runs at 2400, so I'm thinking to go with it if I can't find a real one. It has a 2666 setting in one of the XMP profiles, and my reasoning is to overclock as little as possible.
Thanks in advance.
