Buying into DR Samsung B-Die, worth it?
I was looking to upgrade my current sticks of Ram (TeamGroup Vulcan 3000 8GBx2 C16 [16-18-18-38]). I believe they're Micron B-Die, very bad at ocing, from what I've tried.
Also looking to upgrade the capacity while I'm at it.
I was mainly eyeing 3000 C14 & 3200 C14 kits, so far I found only two with cheap shipping & import duty from amazon.com:
I'll be shipping them to India (if that matters).
My main goal would be ocing obviously, looking to get 3600+ or whatever falls in the holy land of B-Die. Is this a good purchase, or is SR the way to go for high clocks? Would like some advice before I pull the trigger. Also AFAIK *Lake CPus require 4 memory banks for maximum performance, though don't quote me on that because I can't remember where I came across the fact.
8700k @ 5.0Ghz (1.3V)
Asrock Z370 Fatality K6
Noctua NH-U14S (hinders the 4th DIMM Slot, somewhat)
(Don't think the rest matters)
My motherboard's QVL doesn't have the memory kits I picked out listed, but I'm somewhat confident I'll get it to work at the advertised speeds (had a similar issue in the ddr3 era).
