I am going to build my life's first ever PC very soon. I have planned everything but RAM is the only component I am still confused for.

Should I opt in for a 3000MHz C15 or 3600MHz C18? Also is there any issues or problems I can face if I bought the 3000MHz C15 and overclocked it to higher frequencies like 3600 or 3733 (ryzen's own sweet spot)?

I want to work and game hassle free and without any tension or issues. So every suggestions, opinion and recommendations are welcome 馃檪 馃檪

3200 cl14 should overclock better.

Uhhh sorry to say but, there is almost next to 0 options for 3200MHz C14 in where I live. You cannot even find one, no matte what and how much you try hard.

Someone told me it will have latency issues if I overclocked a C15 3000MHz. Is that really true sir?

If you are as adventurous as me, get a samsung OEM memory of any speed (2133 - 2666).

If you're lucky you can get the B-die (best for OC), D-die (second best) or C-die (not so great).

3200 cl14 is guaranteed using samsung B-die, that's why they are more expensive.

Depending on your CPU / Mobo, it can overclock to 3600 easily, in my case i cap out at 3200.

Yes sir, I am as adventurous as you but the problem is nobody sells C14 3200MHz here. Being expensive is not any issue

Ok, then it's probably impossible to say what RAM chips are on it. At least before buying.

... but I'm no expert

You dont have to get 3200 cl14. Like i said finding samsung oem sticks (those one with green pcb, no heatsink) probably better as you can see the marking on the chip. With third party brand theres no guarantee you will get the same chip for each sku as they block visual access with heatsinks.

Sample samsung sku (written on the stickers)

DB2 = D die

M378A1K43DB2-CTD

BB1 = B die

M378A1K43BB1-CPB

Die code is the first letter in the last 6.
