For a little more, you can get 3600 MHz [newegg.com]CL16 [newegg.com], which is the sweet spot for Ryzen 3000 series (and fine for Ryzen 5000): https://blogs-images.forbes.com/a...emory1.jpg

Good price.With Ryzen 5000 infinity fabric is no more so ram issues should be reduced. Anything over 3200 is where a lot of problems come in and for not a lot gain. So much ram hype out there

There are games that now require 32gigs so the hype is becoming reality now.

I had 16gb of DDR 4 3200 when I was playing Borderlands 3 all spring. I realized game was using 8gb ram so I upgraded to 32gb. Now Borderlands is using almost half of that. Game are just made like crap today. I have a whole bunch of new games that were around $50-$60 that I couldn't even play yet they were so buggy (Red Dead Redemption 2 was one of them). I've uninstalled and re-installed BL3 a lot because it wont even start without that. I think hardware got so good the sloppy game labels just toss junk out. There is also no reason games have to be so huge. BL3 is like 10x bigger than BL2 nd it doesnt look that much better. Labels like the huge games because it makes them harder to download on the sly

Actually AMD themselves stated that just as DDR4-3800 was the top-performance configuration for overclocking Ryzen 3000 desktop processors, DDR4-4000 will be the same for Ryzen 5000 desktop processors.

[Edit: I'll add that for non-overclockers DDR4-3600 remains the "sweet spot" and AMD's recommendation for the Zen 3-based processors]

After 15 years of aeembling my own PCs, gaming etc. I am aware of the spectacualr degree of hype the PC hardware scene is bathed in. According to Steam, less that 8% of gamers even have an 8 core cpu. Nobody really needs a ram "sweet spot" for gaming. If people still find a use for overclocking (I don't) then some of the tweeky-finicky things are an issue. 3200 ram is perfectly fine - the gains after that are miniscule, while the price and latency go up. Nobody needs a $2000 pc to play buggy games like RDR2 and BL3. I know 4k and all that calls for more, but 4k is overkill for gaming too imo. It doesn't seem too long ago that SLI and Crossfire were all the rage and they were just headaches that appealed to kids who didn't know better. Thank heaven thats all over. I hope OCing is next because its a relic of weak hardware days that now just complicates enthusist hardware more than it needs to. You can have a Corvett in New York City or LA but you are goingt to go 160 mph so there's no point. CPUs are maxed-out more out of the box and OCing is just tweeking for the sake of tweeking

Ah I get it. You're talking about the CL16 vs CL18 right? Cuz they are both 3600 MHz. I'm holding out for a sale on Ripjaw for my future Ryzen 5000.
