After thinking over it - I'll probably just stick the 2400 in the system. Don't see the justification in spending 120-150 on the upgrade from 2400 to 3200 which might not even get 3200. Unless I can get any evidence of it being so. Thanks for the help anyway.

You'll have some loss off performance but if you have the sticks don't bother getting new ones prices are still too high to justify buying new ones.

As the title says - looking for ram suggestions that will work in my current system. I decided to get my brother an identical system as mine as he is wanting one and I was planning on doing it for his birthday anyway (already bought all the parts but the ram) - only problem being that the ram I have is out of stock right now. Also the one I have been looking at seems to be cheaper at the moment. The RAM doesn't have to be RGB - just a quick look I took while on partpicker. If there's a non-RGB version for cheaper - even better. I have checked the QVL and can't find it on there. So here I am to ask for some guidance. Thanks in advance.

Ram I am looking at : https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/RBs8TW/corsair-vengeance-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3200-memory-cmr16gx4m2c3200c16

Any 3200 Ram will suffice, both are great.

Sorry if I am kinda repeating my question - just not sure if it's worth to buy a 3200 kit or just use the 2400 kit.

So - just found my old 2400mhz ram on amazon and checked it out on ThaiPhoon Burner. It is saying it's B-die - so would it be worth to get the same kit that I know has been working on this system and just get the 3200mhz version? I am wanting it to actually run at 3200 if possible. Don't want to buy 3200 and then have it run at 2933mhz or something..its also cheaper and on the QVL.
