Yeah, that would change everything and make a HUGE performance difference...
Honestly don't know how I would survive without my 3200. I need those extra nanoseconds or I will get fired at work.

Oh no, 10 nano seconds and not the latest in rgb tech? Hard pass, for sure

/s

But seriously, unless you're really sensitive to even the smallest performance issue, most people will not care
I would won that hardcore pro pub game of RuneScape had I only had a half more nano second!

Can I hack the pentagon with with these or do I have to settle on being a virgin again this year?

Any cheap RAM from a reliable company will be more than adequate for watching netflix on one monitor while using Microsoft Word on another. Don't waste your money chasing after these meaningless numbers that have zero affect on how your system is being used.

CAS Latency 16 - not the greatest deal.

FYI, to determine latency in nanoseconds you take the (CAS Latency/Frequency)*2000

This comes out to 10.67 nanoseconds... not the greatest at this price.

Corsair just announced some new RGB technology for all of their products at CES 2019. If you're really into RGB, I would wait to see what new products they offer. Seems like RGB brightness, and performance will be much greater than it is now
This is a handy reference page for anyone who is a bit more curious about how frequency and CAS translate to performance.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAS_latency

For folks giving him a hard time about such small differences...some folks like me enjoy thinking through the right price/performance even when it's on a less important component like RAM or SSD.

I don't know why I waist time reading comments anymore. 50% think they've got it all figured out, 30% nonsense, and 20% bickering to prove a point that wouldn't apply to 100% of us. But hey, at least someone was trying to educate us on determining latency -which I appreciated. Keep up the great work my fellow LAN party nerds. 😀

Would I have any issues combining a kit of these with the regular LED vengeance kit of the same frequency? When I built my rig a few years ago there were only LED versions not RGB.

So if I buy 2 kits I get 32gb. Has anybody actually ever had issues combining kits?
I had issues with GSkill memory on Gigabyte AM4 board. I fixed it by putting the lowest serial # together in the recommended slots to boot 2 dimms. Then put the other 2 in the same way for 4. I had memory boot and clock failures due to mixing the ram. I had 2 of the GSkill Black AMD 3000Mhz 2x8GBs.

Honestly on intel I don't feel like it will make a huge difference since I just upgraded from 2133mhz to 3000mhz and my benchmark on Forza Horizon 4 and GTA V showed no difference. BTW I'm currently running a 8700k with 16gb of ram with a GTX 1080 Ti.

Intel isn't terribly sensitive to memory timings. Ryzen's got a boatload of tests that show you can get an improvement with diminishing returns beyond a certain point, but (and this was always true) this is more important for APUs since faster memory will mean faster graphics performance. As with most things, it's also a case by case basis, but if you were someone looking for every possible piece of performance, this isn't as high as it goes.

as long as you're motherboard has 4 slots for RAM, you'll be fine
Not true. Consult with your motherboard manual. Some boards are picky. So won't work period. Most will reduce your speed to the absolute lowest by default. Its rare you'll get the standard speed 3000 with a non matched dual channel. For the price try it, doesnt work return a set

That's not how you would win. You need more RGB. Or the lastest version sRGB to dominate
