What's The Difference Between These 4 Sets Of Ram?

Okay, so I'm looking at these 4 sets of ram for my system upgrade I'm about to be doing. 2 of these sets are 3200MHz CAS14, and the other 2 are CAS16. But I'm just curious as to what the differences are between the matching sets. Like I know the 2 with CAS14 are different from the 2 with CAS16. Either way here are the sets of ram.

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16820232485

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16820232649

The above 2 are the CAS14. They look to be completely identical all around other than one of them has a X at the end of it's model name.

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16820232476

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16820232751

And these 2 are the CAS16 sets. And same thing with them, they look completely the same other than one of them has a X at the end of it's model name.

So I'm curious as to what the X stands for with them. Does all 4 of them use Samsung B-Die chips? Or does the X maybe represent that? Any help on this matter would be nice and appreciated!
Thanks!

Hi no all don't have b-die
C14 is likely too have timings often show yes b-die 14-14-14/ 15-15-15/ 16-16-16 would like all be samsung b-die
loose timing like the last two kits 16-18-18/....are likely hynix or micron not all the desirable but can usually do the rated speed without many issues and save a little money in the process than expensive b-die.

This can make finding or confirming b-die easy

3200c16 is SK Hynix, 3200c14 is samsung B-die. Huge price difference, I know, but the 3200c14 will overclock much better. They can generally hit 4000+ on Intel platforms.

$180 isn't bad for the RGB 3200c14, I paid that much for non-RGB before, I might buy those lol

There is also 3200c15 B-die out there per the finder, around $155-160 for the 16gb set if you want to save $, also 3000c14 for $145

If you want RGB looks like these are the cheapest b-die for $165:

So the two C14 kits are Samsung B-Die, good to know! Now what about the difference between the two C14 kits? I can't seem to figure out what is different other than the model name ending with an "X" for one of the kits. I don't know if that "X" represents anything or not?

The X version is supposedly more AMD(Ryzen/Threadripper) optimized, can't seem to find what they actually optimized about it though...

Okay so the X just means it's meant to run better with AMD, got it. Well that answers all my question I had. Thanks for the quick replies everyone!
