Need to choose RAM! single rank or dual rank? How to tell?

First of all, I got no knowledge on RAM Sticks,

 

But I've been told about E-Die, B-Die, Dual Rank and Single Rank.

 

Can anyone tell me in details what to choose and what they are made of?

 

eg. Dual Rank E-Die? Single Rank B-Die?

 

How to tell what they are? What would you go with and why?

 

I'm planning to setup a PC with 3700X.

 

Thank you.

If they're 2x8GB kits, they're almost certainly single rank so the rank question really doesn't matter. Early on in DDR4 there were some dual rank 8GB modules but they've pretty much disappeared as higher density chips came on the scene. 

 

Of the ones you listed, I'd lean towards the 3600C16 since it is moderately priced but gets you the speed while maintaining reasonable timings. Just double check compatibility.

 

What chips are actually in use doesn't really matter unless you fancy trying to overclock them, which if you get the 3600C16 kit, there isn't really much point.

That FlareX kit is b-die.  If you don't mind overclocking then I'd buy that.

That kit will almost certainly run 3600MHz at 14-15-14-14 with enough voltage.
