Choosing 2x16 RAM kit for Ryzen 1st gen, does anyone know about F4-3200C16D-32GTZSK?

I'm in the market for a 2x16 kit (mostly because of the silly modern software "technologies" where everything runs in a browser. Sigh.). I have a Ryzen 1700, and I would very much like to hit at least 2933 MHz, better yet 3066 (not even hoping for 3200, I couldn't even get that from a 2x8 kit). I know a 3200C14 kit would be a safe bet as those are pretty much guaranteed to have Samsung chips, but these kits are very scarce in my local stock and are quite expensive. 3600 kits are in greater abundance, but also expensive and I'm not positive they're guaranteed to be Samsungs.

 

So I'm looking at 3200C16 kits, and one of them stands out for having a comparatively low price: F4-3200C16D-32GTZSK. I can't find any technical info on this kit. Has anyone heard something of it? Perhaps, some of you have it?

 

I'm also looking at Samsung OEM modules, they range from pretty expensive to darn expensive. The only reasonably priced one is M378A2K43CB1-CRC, which seems to be ECC and probably registered/buffered so I don't know if I should even be considering it.

The Samsung UDIMM with manufacturer reference M378A2K43CB1-CRC is a unbuffered DIMM non-ECC DDR4 2400MHz 288Pin

It's an unbuffered non-ecc, so probably work with Ryzen 1700.

At 2400 base clock you'll be lucky if it reach 3000.

 

F4-3200C16D-32GTZSK is Gskill modules, it's a popular brand.

Wow, thanks, I must have been reading the specs for some other SKU somehow. There's a Youtube video of this very module x2 working at 3200 CL16, which of course doesn't guarantee anything, but I've also heard of 2133 Samsung 8 GB modules working at 3200 and 3333 with 1st-gen Ryzen 7.

Yes it doesn't guarantee anything, they may get a gold batch.
