I found these 2 options on PCP: Corsair Vengeance RGB 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-6000 CL36 Memory and Corsair Vengeance 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-6400 CL32 Memory so just out curiosity how much differences is there in performance? Is it even noticeable at that speed?


 

Some background: the build is aimed at gaming and machine learning so more memory/better memory would be nice I guess. That is also why the GPU is missing because of the recent price spike. 

Rest of the build THUS FAR for reference:

LTT actually has a recent video about this on DDR5. The 6000CL36 is not there but CL40, 6400 CL32 is also in the charts.

Video is timestamped on games.

Estimating based on 6000 CL30 and CL40 compared to 6400 CL32 in the video, it seems like a 2-3% performance hit in most scenarios. It is a measurable difference so I guess no salivating over the glowy RGB for me.

Thanks!
