DDR4 3000Mhz CL15 vs DDR4 3600Mhz CL18 for Ryzen 3000?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Which RAM stick's would do better with ryzen 3000 series cpu DDR4 3000Mhz C15 i currently have (Corsair Vengeance LPX 2 x 8gb from SK Hynix A-Die + 2 x 8gb from Samsung B-Die) or new Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3600Mhz 2 x 8gb kit with CL18? I heard Ryzen likes faster memory and 3600 is sweetspot unlike intel i have now which does not care but, going from 2133Mhz to 3000Mhz gave me an additional +20 fps in most games (i don't know why).

LTT did a video testing all ram speeds  with a dual channel setup. 

I suggest you watch that on floatplane or wait for the youtube release.

3600 CL18 is of course better, I just dont know how much extra spending that refers to.

Imo that kit is too expensive. There are cheaper options at 3600MHz CL18

But I will pay extra for the guaranteed headroom
