    "Buyers should look for an "X" as the last letter in a G.Skill memory kit to know that it’s been validated to work on AMD’s desktop platforms."

    I'm leaning towards the -3400 Sniper X, simply for the slightly faster timings than the Trident Z...

    But has anyone done any actual system builds yet with these on new X470 boards with 2600X/2700X?
    I'm curious if -3600 is nearly immediately working without tweaks or if -3400 (or -3200) is still safer.
    Also, has it been figured out if these are in fact Samsung b-Dies and not Hynix chips?

    2700X, G-skill 3600 CL17 Trident-Z RGB works out of the box, no problems. Haven't tried tweaking it any more yet.

    The timings on these new "+X" kits imply they might not be B-die. Their first set of Trident "+X" kits were obviously relabeled existing kits of B-die that had supposedly been tested with Ryzen. The Flare X at least got a new heatsink design but seems to be B-die only at higher timings anyways.

    No idea why they are doing this, all of their actual B-die kits have been very good on Ryzen. The main limiter for the 1xxx was the IMC and motherboard+BIOS, not the ram itself. 3200C14-14-14 and similar from G-skill or Team have been the only good fast ram options for AMD since launch: Buy Smart, Buy B-Die! Its also the only ram type that clocks 4000++ on intel too.
