The speed difference between both is minimal as both are 3000mhz. At the end of the day, the actual clock speed will be more beneficial, unless the latency is something absurd like a CL17+. If you're speaking to the supposed "compatibility" issues that Ryzen used to have that required 3000mhz+ and samsung bdie sticks to work, that hasn't been an issue since the first year Ryzen was released. Most sticks will work perfectly fine now and getting the best sticks to make use of the infinity fabric is really only a concern for pc enthusiasts. The price you pay as a premium for something like bdie sticks is such a small return in performance for something like this pair of ram. Not saying that you're recommending people to buy more expensive sticks, i'm just pointing out for others.

I do agree with you, but I still wouldn't get these sticks unless you needed some right now. 16-20-20 for 3000mhz does seem a stretch since this price point has seen 16-18-18 fairly often recently. And the prices still seem to be slowly falling.

I think there will be a better deal within a week.

Good low $/GB ratio as memory prices keep tumbling. But this is the slower version of the Vengeance LPX line.

The one below is the one to get when it comes on sale for those Rizen builds

I bought this less than 2 weeks ago for $95. Will they price adjust?

Why is this a deal? Same speed, and similar (or slightly better) timings has been posted for 10 dollars less. Is this a brand name thing? AData vs Corsair?

You are implying a lot of things I didn't say. Compatibility, etc.

I will make it simple. This is not a good deal in an environment of falling memory prices. This is not a special that won't be repeated or matched. Just different vendors making different decisions on ramping their prices down stepwise. They are discounting the less desirable of their stockpile first for obvious reasons.

There is no reason to get these slow ones unless you want memory right at this moment. Prices are falling daily. Look at Price Drops on pcpartpicker.com. The memory section is always the biggest section of daily drops.

TU just nice to see prices on memory coming down. Miss those 2016 and earlier prices, but I will take this.

No, Not compatible. DDR4 has a different pin count than DDR3.

Agreed ! Running the red version with my classic R51600X

First off its nice to see a selection of 16GB RAM kits below $100 .

The Corsair LPX line never gets the press the samsung b-die modules do as they are almost always SK Hynix based ..but they work at the rated speeds, are well supported by the mfg and they FIT underneath almost all tower cpu coolers.
