Recommended Posts

For Crosshair VII, should I go for:

Corshair Vengiance LPX
1. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/...2gx4m2b3200c16 or

G.Skill Ripjaws V series.
2. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/...43200c16d32gvk

I need 2 x 16Gb (32Gb) BUT want to avoid RGB ones if I can.

Personally I trust Corsair more then G. Skill although both will do the job for many years to come.  Just get the one that is cheapest.

Asus Sabertooth x79 / 4930k @ 4500 @ 1.408v / Gigabyte WF 2080 RTX / Corsair VG 64GB @ 1866 & AX1600i & H115i Pro @ 2x Noctua NF-A14 / Carbide 330r Blackout

Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface / KRK Rokits 10" / Sennheiser HD 650 / Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse & G915 Linear & G935 & C920 / SL 88 Grand / Cakewalk / NF-A14 Int P12 Ex
AOC 40" 4k Curved / LG 55" OLED C9 120hz / LaCie Porsche Design 2TB & 500GB / Samsung 950 Pro 500GB / 850 Pro 500GB / Crucial m4 500GB / Asus M.2 Card

I don't know if you've got the money for this but..I'd throw this 3200mhz cl14 kit into the mix as well (Confirmed samsung b die kit too):



I too trust corsair more but I'm kinda biased because my pc and peripherals are plagued with corsair stuff. They've also got very good customer service. I'd get the first kit you mentioned, but if you want to squeeze absolutely everything out of your ryzen build, then the kit I've mentioned gets that job done without rgb.

if the specs are the same, they are mostly made of the same parts anyway. Names like Corsair Gskill TeamGroup Kingston just do the binning and packaging. Memory chips are made by Samsung, Micron and SK Hynix, brands you commonly see all buy memory chips from these 3 (aside from Crucial, they are under Micron so everything's Micron unless Micron doesn't make them)
