  1. I had the impression that DDR4 memory had a soft/hard lock of always starting at 2133/2400mhz (not counting xmp) no matter the ram specs but seems i am wrong. I guess i will opt for the Z model but would love to get some more heads up over the subject
  2. I found 2 different model types regarding this ram stick CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16 and CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 for the same price and i am trying to figure out their differences so i at least wont get the "wrong" one if possible. From what i gathered so far the Z model is seemingly optimized for ryzen systems/has a small chance of samsung b-die chips (but not really betting on it) while the B model seems the more commercial available one and seems to be optimized for intel systems. Using the data from the official site https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Memory/VENGEANCE-LPX/p/CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16 and https://www.corsair.com/eu/en/Categories/Products/Memory/VENGEANCE-LPX/p/CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 they both seem to have the same timings for 3200 while the Z model has a spd speed of 2666 compared to 2133 of B model I dont expect to win the lottery and get a samsung bdie Z model and B by default uses hynix or similar but still is there a reason not go with the Z for my pc build of ryzen 5 2600X/pro aorus 540?Also in theory will the Z one run by default at 2666mhz or it will get throttled to 2400mhz by the mobo?
