Hi, I want to buy new PC and I need some advice, I thinking about:
- Ryzen 5 1600,
- ASRock X370 Gaming X,
- SSD Apacer Z280 120GB,
- RAM G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4, 2x8GB, 3200MHz (I don't really know which ram buy).

What do you think about this set?
Anybody here have this motherboard or ssd? Is everything working well with Gentoo?

I have no experience with this components, but I can say you that you will have no problems to run it under gentoo. The fact that a gentoo user have allways to build his own kernel, gives you a garantee that all hardware parts that can be handled by the kernel version, you can configure it. And Desktop PC Mainboards in general have no chipsets on it that are problematic. This problem you normally only have for cheap Laptops/Netbooks, for various components.

For the RAM I can say, the chance is good that it works with the full 3200 , but this can not said in general because on OC Limits, it is allways a chance, that it not works at full speed. You will 100% run it at 2666, maybe at 2933 maybe really at 3200 but there is never a 100% garantee. It is even possible that the same mainboardtype and RAM combination works in one case, and in another case it will not.

lekto,

The Asrock site will list approved DRAM (QVL?). Check the 'support' tab for that MB.
