Timing 18-22-22-42
CAS Latency 18
Voltage 1.35V

It's not bad, but I've seen 3600 CAS 16 for $72-ish shipped on Newegg
I don't like this line of thinking....



If you can afford the $4 difference, get the 3600 kit. Your CPU/Mobo won't run it at 3600, which isn't a big deal because out of the box these probably run lower. The 3200 or 3600 is the MAX speed they can hit. Not what they actually run at by default.

I would spend the extra few bucks so you have 3600 RAM when you get your next PC. Unless DDR5 is the standard by then, but still it's only $4 more.
I don't understand why getting the higher speed would be better... The 3200 is CAS 16 while the 3600 is CAS 18 and his PC can only support up to 3200 anyways.

Can you help me understand why the 3600 is better in your opinion for a PC that can only handle 3200 when the latency is lower on the 3200 RAM?

Looking to buy these for an inexpensive desktop that can only do 3200 speed RAM but want the possibility of moving to another PC build later, which is more important, speed or latency? Or are the latencies close enough that it doesn't matter and I should just get the faster RAM?

Get the 3200 one since your mobo is only capable of 3200, memory will probably become more accessible and cheaper in the future when you decide to upgrade
This is bad advice on so many levels. Just get the higher speed if you want and run it at a lower speed.

You can just run the ram at a lower speed with tighter timings. The only difference between this ram is what is advertised on the timings.

With the price difference, it's worth getting higher rated speed and then running it slower because it is rated to handle it better.

But the lower latency is important, right? Technically, if both run 3200 (which the 3200 RAM may not fully reach 3200 while the 3600 should) then the lower Latency RAM stick would be faster.

Latency is just a timing and can be changed. You could almost definitely run the 3600 at CAS16 but it might have ability to go a little faster when he moves to a different board.

I understand that if this person ever upgrades, having the RAM which is only 4 dollars more would be better.

However, for their current PC, the 3200 CAS 14 would likely be faster (from my understanding). Also, by the time this person upgrades, DDR5 could be a thing making the "future investment" useless.

All of this to say, I don't think it's totally unreasonable to get the 3200 CAS14 over the 3600 CAS16

Ok I mistyped. Run the 3600 at 3200Cas14

Nope, my bad I mistyped lol. I guess I am just unaware that it is possible to run RAM at a lower latency than what it is rated for.
