Hi ahmad213 welcome back home 😎

 

From Arma3 gaming, your i7 7700HQ [@ 2,80 GHz and Turbo maxi 3,80 GHz] performances are to be compared today to entry level CPUs so the only way to get a higher FPS level is to lower view distance in game, setting the Overall Visibility  parameter from 2200 m to 1800m .

I still dont get it. What is more important for more fps in Arma3? Higher RAM frequency or lower timings? 

 

So would be 4600MHz with CL18-19 be better or worse then 3200MHz with CL15-16? Is there a sweetspot?

As I have previously said ...

"In the particular case of an AMD Ryzen processor, what you need to know is that the frequency of the internal data exchange system Infinity Fabric synchronizes with the frequency of the external RAM.

So here you need RAM with the highest frequency compatible with your CPU and Mobo.

And yes, it will be better to get the lower latency RAM sticks".

I must add that AMD had already stated during  AMD E3 Tech Days  that there is a "sweet spot" @ 3733 MHz related to the ways Infinity Fabric is working.

That's why GSKill releasing a lot of Ryzen 3000 dedicated 3600 MHz kits with 14/16/18 latency.

 

If you are playing Intel the rule is highest frequency compatible with your CPU and Mobo showing lowest latency you can afford 😥

 

Arma 3 is particularly sensitive to the way memory is managed.

If you are asking for gaming on Intel you can go for 4600MHz CL18

If you are asking about gaming on an AMD Ryzen 3000, a 3600 MHz CL16 dedicated kit will do the job.

There is not much room in AMD Ryzen 2 for OC, so the main issue is to get the CPU giving the highest boost frequency out of the box ...

Noctua nhd9l

 

Asus TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING, ATX-emolevy

@Muikku4
CPU  : i7-9700K has Intel UHD 630 IGPU, i7-9700KF has no Integrated Graphics.

MoBo : Asus TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING is OK

SSD : Samsung 1TB 860 QVO 2.5" [review] ... why not, but I would prefer one SATA TLC based either in M.2 or 2"5 version.

CPU cooling : NH-D9L suggested because it's rather efficient in a compact format, it will fit in most cases.

 

Coming with the Mobo, you will get 2 SATA cables. from my point of view, it's better to use brand new cables for a new build.

Those 2 are just what you need unless you get an extra 5"5 DVD drive.
