TridentZ RGB DDR4: 115$ more for 2 clocks less?

Hi everyone,

I'm thinking of getting 16GB of G.Skill's TridentZ RGB memory and found those offers on amazon, both by G.Skill:

1) https://www.amazon.de/G-Skill-DDR4-1...ct_top?ie=UTF8
2) https://www.amazon.de/dp/B01MTDEYHU/...A3JWKAKR8XB7XF

The only difference I can see is that the first kit is CL14 and the second is CL16. At the time of writing the price difference is around 100 EUR. Are there any other differences I didn't notice?

Thanks

There is a big difference depending on what you plan on doing, overclocking and gaming mainly. Check this new Ryzen memory benchoff. https://www.computerbase.de/2019-03/...-cpu-ddr4-ram/

At stock in programs that are sensitive to RAM speed the difference would be roughly equivalent to running the CPU 100-200MHz higher which on it's own is not enough to make a noticeable difference.

But with overclocking the Samsung b die can hit ~4000MHz while maintaining fairly tight timings unlike the Hynix which requires significantly loser timings to OC even to just 3600.
Once overclocked faster RAM can often bring a bigger performance boost to the CPU than overclocking the CPU itself making for a very noticeable improvement when both are overclocked together.

Thanks for the explanations guys. I'm only occasional gamer, what I'm mostly interested in are faster Gradle build times for large projects with Android Studio.
For fast I/O I plan to go with the 970 Pro, for the CPU I'm thinking about the i9 9900K but still not sure whether a Ryzen can offer appr. the same performance at a lower price tag. I will certainly go for an 360mm AIO LCS, so I guess there will be some OC potential regardless of the CPU vendor. Hence my question, I was looking for RAM which will play nicely with an overclocked CPU (G.Skill just because I had really good experience with the TridentX for many years).

Just go with C14s, they can work great for either platform, however just keep in mind if you need 32GB or 64GB, get a complete kit and not two 8GB or 16GB kits.

16GB if it is just for games.
