Is b-die ram still necessary?

Hi, im recently changing to the red team, so i bought an x470 asus pro mobo (since i intend to later buy a zen2 cpu, and it was with 40 EUR discount), a ryzen 5 2600, and a pair of 8gb g.skill ripjaws v 16cl 3200, then later found out about the whole samsung b-die vs hynix ram compatibility with amd, and i was wondering how will this affect me, and what is exactly the difference between both, other than lower latency, since (at least in my country) the difference between a 3200 16gb 16cl  hynix kit and a 14cl b-die kit is about 50-60 EUR .

 

Thank for your time in advance.

Doesn't matter if you aren't an extreme overclocker

 

especially on Ryzen 2000

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

It was never necessary, it just makes things a little easier. I have never bothered to go out of my way to get B Die for my Ryzen builds, and I've never had issues. Either I'm lucky or it doesn't matter due to me not needing whatever improvements B die has to offer.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

When Ryzen launched if you didn't have B-die you weren't getting over even 2400mhz depending on the kit.

 

Bios updates helped Ryzen 1st gen. 2nd gen just has a better memory controller.
