    I bought this kit of ram last year when it was like 160$ on a newegg special..... THank god i never sold it and kept it laying around, as im now using it for my Ryzen music pc.... I keep hearing the term "Samsung B Die" getting tossed around as that is the perferred ram to use on ryzen IMC's.... Does anyone know if this ram is in fact "B Die" ?? And holy shit!!! The price of this ram now is through the roof!!! I can say that even on this ryzen build, 3200 works with zero issues...

    I'd be surprised if it isn't as the comparable 2x8gb kit is and this is only doubling it to 4 sticks.

    The easiest way to test it is to see if it will run at 3200 mhz. I have some e die ram and it will not post above 2933 mhz. Seems to be a common issue with everything other than the b die.
