  • These are the types of concepts I am still struggling with and honestly it seems like RAM gets the least amount of true technical coverage. Maybe bc its really technical? I have watched some of Buildzoids stuff, some of which I understand, but some of which is too technical to grasp. Anyways, I have to pick btwn those two kits and any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the novel.
    Another thing I was curious about:it seemed as though the MHz increased the timings did as well. Is this to compensate for the increased voltage and heat for producing faster spped? Or bc its assumed the user will tweak timings? Or bc of cost? Or maybe just bc there are crappy kits out there but SUPER POWER marketing will trick some?
    i.e. if you have 3200 CL 16 & 3600 CL 18, I believe they technically have the same true latency. But if the timings are tighter on the 3200 (CL16-16-16-36), will it trump the 3600 (CL18-22-22-42)? At what point, will the speed of the 3600 kit take over?
    Long version: I understand some of the basic and intermediate info, but I haven't quite put the entire conceptual-puzzle together. Right now I am stuck on this (in relation to Zen 2 chips), speed vs latency. I understand that speed generally beats latency,but whats the exact ratio or breakeven point
    TLDR: Which RAM would you pick btwn these two SKUS ("buy another kit" isn't an option unfortunately):

    1)Trident Z RGB DDR4-3200MHz CL16-18-18-38 1.35V 16GB (2x8GB) F4-3200C16D-16GTZR 2)Trident Z Royal DDR4-3600MHz CL18-22-22-42 1.35V 16GB (2x8GB) F4-3600C18D-16GTRS
    Hi - you seemed to be well versed on RAM based off a Zen 2 forum I read through. I am new to the PC realm and I would love some assistance.
