Best ram for EVGA dark z390 + 9900k for gaming

Just purchased a EVGA dark z390 + 9900k and looking to get some ram for it, it only has 2 slots, im interested in pushing overclock limits on water as well as gaming (main function of this rig) so what memory do you guys recommend?

Im almost sold on the 14-14-14-34 Gskill 32gb kit (https://www.gskill.com/en/finder?cat...prop_3=3200MHz)

But wanted to hear from the experts before i click buy now

Anything B-die will be good, and AFAIK most DDR3200 kits @ c14 from G.Skill is typically B-die (you will want to try and verify that before buying the specific kit). Results will vary based on IMC quality and binning of the ics on the dimms (in this case the dimms being dual sided may also vary the ram speed potential). You're likely to see anywhere from 3800-4133 keeping it under 1.5v for vdimm and between c16-c19. I'm no expert for sure but that has just been my general experience with the several kits I own on my Aorus Master (I have a Z390 Dark on RMA atm).

Running 32GB b die will get you a small performance boost from dual rank sticks but that may be offset by the lower max clock speed when overclocking which will depend on the quality of your memory controller on the CPU.
3200c14 will get you a lowish bin of b die but if you are spending that much on CPU\MB for overclocking you may want to spend more on a kit with higher binned chips.

3600c15 1.35v
4000c17 1.35v
4600c18 1.45v
4800c18 1.5v

Subscribed since I'm curious as to suggestions. Maybe find that b-die list that's floating around and buy whatever set off that is on sale lol

So is it really worth it going with higher mhz and lower cas?

Above 3200 speed gaming and CPU tests does not benefit. Memory scaling benchmarks LINK: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...alysis/10.html
