These seem to be a relatively good price in today's terrible ram price market. Newegg has an extended holiday return policy, so you could pick these up, hold onto them, and return should a better deal come across in the next 60 days.

Yes and No.

He's being very picky about it, but the CAS latency affects the latency for ram.

Take the CAS and divide it by the MHz and you get the latency in nanoseconds (before conversion)

So 16/3200 = .005 (x1000) = 5
15/3200 = .00469 = 4.69

but... don't forget it's all a math equation so you'd have to recalculate for every single differing cas/mhz.

So in this case, 15/3200 is faster by that much.

This is useful for people who use heavy Ram programs, such as rendering/video editing etc.
For everyone else, small differences and even relatively small differences for those it affects.
Generally speaking faster MHz > more significant than good Cas/Mhz balance.

Is there a particular reason you would require a specific speed?
If it's a motherboard thing, you can just use any ram at that speed or faster and it will clock @ that speed.

All ram can clock slower than it is.

I've heard often Newegg will refund the difference as it saves them money overall compared to return shipping and reshipping. I bought these, but will keep my eyes open for an even better deal.

Very nice, saves a headache.

I'm hoping some 16GB modules pop up for sale.

Loving these G.skill deals - just sucks because I need DD4 2666 and those 16gb kits are still too high.

Seems like a great price at the moment as the prices of these have fluctuated quite a bit starting from $140 last year to up to $220 this past month according to pcpartpicker.

CAS 16? Nah B... can't do it. Gotta be 15 or under for this price.
Don't know much about memory, but does the CAS 16 make that much of a difference?

I suppose you're right. I've got a Dell XPS 8910 with i7-6700. Fastest speed I believe I can use is 2666. If I grab these, you don't think there will be any incompatibility? If not, I would get them, as I haven't found any deals on the specific max speed this setup support. Thanks

I prefer to say, the fastest speed the board can run is 2666.
If you have ram already or won't be replacing the ram completely, the system will only run as fast as your slowest ram anyway. I do not think you would see any compatibility issues - and the worst case scenario where there was some unexpected issue, you could easily flip on craigslist for what you paid, because this is a good deal no matter where you are haha. (maybe even a small profit if you were lucky).

But I don't think you'd need to be prepared for that.
