They don't need to be that similar and even most DIMMs sold as kits have significant variances.
Using memory together simply means you are constrained to the lowest common denominator of the sticks you have...and even that isn't always a hard rule as many boards allow timings to be set per-channel. Once I find the best four of however many sticks I bin, chances are the settings I used for the fourth fastest stick will work fine for the best four together, with some minor adjustments depending on the IMC.

My hyper Predator 2666c13 I bought at first when got my my x99 are MFR, I did 15-16-16 with 1.41v with them.
Thanks for the info.
Just needed to know if there was enough chance of getting decent (something appreciably better than stock JEDEC, not looking to set any records) ones to bother trying my luck. From what I can tell, the MFRs at least respond to voltage better than the Micron ICs on most of my current DDR4.
Do you happen to know what speed grade (PB, RD, TF, or UH) your MFR ICs were? And what clock speed were those timings and volts at?
