I liked the look of those sticks with the black and red, sadly, those specific kits had bad timings (indicating dual rank and not Samsung). Like what you have for 4000Mhz, at 3200Mhz the good timing kits were white and black. Was just not sure it would have looked quite right considering my current scheme (shown below). Note: I need to route the AIO ribbon cable in wire wrap, got lazy and wanted to get it running first... lol. Replaced my 5 year old AIO with the newer Corsair h100i XT Pro. My OCD hates that ribbon cable!Same reason I went to 32GB from 16GB on my last build 8 years ago. I was also seeing RAM usage nip the physical limit. Since going to 32GB I've seen usage top out in the 20-24GB range. Another few years I'm going to want 64GB at this rate.
I hate the RGB and Royal designs from G.SKILL, but I was able to snag a clean white set that I like the look of.

When I run VM's I can push upward of 20GB or higher, but gaming at 4K, I have yet to come close to that.
