I have not installed the Crucial memory yet. However, the g-skill look very similar to the crucial.

The Crucial memory has slightly better spec timing - 16-18-18-38 (vs.16-19-19-39).

Please be sure to check motherboard compatibility on the memory manufacturer's website.

Pricing aside, always had great compatibility with crucial RAM.

Look up your motherboard or desktop/laptop on their website to see what will work for you.

Stay away from gskill if you plan on adding more ram. I read that it doesn't do well going above 16gb, even when using the same brand for additional ram.

This is a great deal for 3600 CL16. This should go front page. A good sale is $75-80. I know people love to see $52-60 for the 3000 or 3200 MT/s kits but this is right along the same value scale and deserves more attention.

Note, they left the tRCD and tRP timings loose at 18, probably mostly for compatibility with all customer systems. A flat 16-16-16-32 (or 34) would be nicer, but if you manually set those, make sure to set all the other timings also to what you see in Ryzen Master (aka avoid auto settings) so you prevent the bios and mem controller from loosening other timings in compensation.

This is a function of trace topologies (t top', or daisy), and the general difficulty in mem controller coordinating 4 sticks together vs just 2, due to typical variances stick to stick. It's not a G.Skill specific problem.

Bitwit recently used this kit in a friend's Intel build. Very attractive kit and specs.
