A few months ago, these were $90.
How much is the price going to keep rising on Ram?

You're paying quite a bit more for timings with this stuff...

You can get this cheaper

Still DDR4 3200, just slightly slower timings... how much of a difference can that possibly make for paying $23 more?

I don't think 3200mhz CL 14 b-die was ever that cheap, but certainly 16gb of slower stuff was.

Depends on your platform. Ryzen chips/motherboards will simply fail to work at rated speeds. You'll see this with the Corsair 3200mhz CL 16 hynix modules out there, as well as with the samsung 3200mhz CL 16 modules. Many users are having to run the ram at 3066 or slower to get it to work in their systems.

I'm planning on buying the 8700k in two weeks so the slower stuff should work fine. If Ryzens are that picky then it might make sense.

The other guys beat me to it, but the original post uses samsung b-die chips, which will work at rated speed with ryzen memory controllers. The link you sent is most likely SKHynix chips, and those struggle on some systems. Some motherboards seems to be more compatible than others, so there is hope that the situation will improve. but right now, some people, myself included, are struggling to run SK Hynix chips even well under rated speed, over volted, and with loosened timings.

AFAIK, Intel has no such issues, so what you say has some validity. Theres probably not much real world difference between CAS 14 and 16. But the samsung chips will undoubtedly overclock better for those that push.

Thanks for the further explanation. I think I'm 'safe' buying the slower/cheaper stuff for the intel build I'm putting together. Trying to pre-buy as many deals as I can to help offset the sticker shock of the 8700k when it comes out. Buying two kits of the cheaper mem saves me about 50 dollars and I think it's worth the savings as most intel chipsets don't seem to have issues based on the reviews. I'm sure that may change with the Z370 but no way to know until it comes out.

2nd this. I've got the Corsair 3200 C16 with R5 1600. Out of boxx running at 2066. OC back to 3200, worked just fine. But I wished it was native frequency OTB.

Can I ask which motherboard do you have?
I ended up getting 1600x and a MSI X370 carbon gaming pro, i coundt find a QVL for it. Or if you could recommend memory guaranteed to work here. Im thinking something with 3000 would suffice but not so sure about it or any compatibility issues with some brands.

Lots of users can't even run above 3000. Settled with Flare X for 180, kinda sux forced to pay a premium.
