  1. Thanks! Are there any issue typically these days with buying two 2x kits instead of one 4x kit? It's a lot easier finding them in pairs but I've have been told years ago that can be a big issue.
  2. Both kits are sold and shipped by newegg. I did notice that the part number for the $$ ram matches what you see a lot of the online reviewers specify what RAM to buy for the new Ryzen chips. Seems that the more expensive ones are what they supplied for reviews. Did they have to change suppliers or change the process or something. I'm not getting anything out of G.Skill. Well the kits just went a bunch so it doesn't matter. Seems Newegg sold out and the second hand guys are selling it now for a few hundred more. ?

  4. Thanks, seems there would be a reason they’re listed at twice the price and as soon as they get them in stock they sell out quickly. The one kit is on the b-die list and the other one isn’t. Does that make a big difference?
  5. I'm sorta new to this stuff but I'm ordering components for my kids to build a PC. They want to play games but also edit videos so I figured I'd get them 64 GB or ram just so I know it is good. They like to leave a lot open all the time so that is part of it also. It's a bit overkill but then I don't have to worry about adding more down the road for a longer time. Anyway, what's the difference between the 32GB (16x2) G.Skill ram kits at Newegg besides the obvious timing numbers? Are those really important or is the 16 latency the important thing? Is it something to do with b-die or something and is that really important. Is it worth the extra $ to get the more expensive one. Why is it more expensive? I do know they are interesting in overclocking and messing with the timings so maybe that's important. The two G.SKILL Trident Z Neo kits: Kit 1: $280 Model F4-3600C16D-32GTZN Timing 16-16-16-36 Kit 2: $160 F4-3600C16D-32GTZNC Timing 16-19-19-39 They offer the 16-19-19-39 Ram in a 4 dimm set, is that important to buy it as a set like that. I've read on forums yes and no but that info was from a good many years ago. If I get the 4 dimm set will there be any major trade offs or issues? This will be going on a GB Master x570 board with a 3800X. I appreciate the help everyone. I just want to get the right stuff ordered so it's easy for them.
  6. When I look at ram from the same manufacturer (G.Skill), I notice their 4 dim kits will have timings that are higher than their 2 dim kits. They have 16 latency but the other numbers are higher. Is that because those numbers get reduced because there are 4 modules. Will getting two kits of the 2 dim RAM end up in the same boat if I combine them? For $280 I can get 32GB (2x16) of DDR4 3600 (16-16-16-36) ram but I see I can also get 64 GB (4x16) of DDR4 3600 (16-19-19-39) for $340. Why is the 4x16 so much 'cheaper' overall? Performance wise am I better off getting the 2x16 now and upgrading if I ever need to or is it better just to get the 4x16 now. Will the latency specks affect gaming performance. The computer will be used for gaming but my kids want to do video editing as well on it. I think 32 gig will be fine for now I just want to be sure it's not worth spending a little more to double the ram. I understand video editing can really tax ram. Thanks, I'm fairly new at this stuff so be nice.
