Should I buy this or the ballistix? What's the oc potential on this?

Nowhere near the Ballistix.

The model you want (two of) is:
BLS2K16G4D32AEST
In stock here:
amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B07M5RMK1T/ref=dp_ob_neva_mobile?th=1&psc=1

(If you've got the cash, £150 for 2×16Gb is excellent value and future-proof. Or £70 for 2×8Gb is perfectly decent)

Then use Thaiphoon Burner & Ryzen DRAM Calculator to tune. Plenty of YouTubes on how

Good price however 2400MHz is a very low clock speed, especially if you have an AMD Ryzen CPU, you need 3000MHz+ to get the full potential out of the CPU.

Still heat added for this price

People spam this daily... i mean 2400mhz is low but ryzen cpus are not all of a sudden magic with fastsr ram...

It is spammed because its to important to get the best value from your CPU. A simple google search shows going from 2400MHz to 3200MHz increases fps by an average of 10-20fps in most AAA titles. Even more in lower end titles, for example CS:GO gains 50fps going from 2400 to 3200.

Here is a chart of the R7 1800x with a GTX 1080ti based on an average of 20 different games:

I'll take an extra 10-20fps for only an extra £10 every time.

Chart literally means nothing, what CPU and GPU is it referring to?

It shows that the CPU, when you remove the bottleneck of a GPU (1080) performs better in gaming with higher RAM clock speeds

Right, so it's from a video where the test setup is a Ryzen 7 1800X overclocked to 4GHz with an aftermarket cooler and an overclocked GTX 1080Ti - a GPU which still costs £800. And the RAM speed was manually changed for the test using the same kit.
Here's the video: youtube.com/wat…3mE

Forgive me for not believing that the average user will see a 10-20fps increase.

This is the Hardware Unboxed test with the same CPU: youtube.com/wat…-FU

Oh nice info, so the average user also wont be playing everything with 100FOV at Ultra settings. You can get an RX5700XT for ~£350 which is comparable if not better than the 1080Ti in most games.

The most played competitive games, Overwatch, CS:GO, Rainbow Six Siege all will see much larger FPS increases compared to AAA games. So in the most commonly played games, the average user will see larger FPS increases than just 10-20fps, especially as competitive games are more often than not played at low-medium graphics.

Getting the most out of your CPU will allow for better performance increases down the line when a GPU is upgraded. There is no reason not to go from 2400-3200MHz when the price difference is all of £10.
You said RAM speed is 'important to get the best value from your CPU. A simple google search shows going from 2400MHz to 3200MHz increases fps by an average of 10-20fps in most AAA titles'.

But missed off '...if you have a £350-£800 GPU'. Have a look here and see how many people that applies to: store.steampowered.com/hws…rd/

£350+GPU's = ~20% of gamers in October 2019 so a decent chunk tbh.

Plus this will carry over to users upgrading the GPU's and players who don't play everything at Ultra settings etc etc all for just a £10 increase. No brainer.
Not sure where you're seeing 20%, I'm strugging to get to even 10% with a 1080 or above. Either way that's leaving 80-90% for whom higher RAM speed would make little or no appreciable difference to their experience. Deals like this are very often full of comments about how the kits are 'slow' (or in your case describing a 'very low clock speed') and that people 'need fast RAM' when it's basically irrelevant for the vast majority.

You've just seen 2 charts from two different sources that prove that RAM speeds affect CPU performance and directly affect fps.

Guys not wanting to upset your party but I posted this because its a deal for people who need a bit more memory in their PC's that might be running a bit sluggish for Outlook, Word, Excel, Web browsing, etc .....not being funny but this want's a deal for hardcore gamers and hence not only might you be disuading people from something which is a deal if they are NOT hardcore gamers but struggling to see why your debating this memory in that context

Incase people think this is a good deal for a gaming PC, which it isnt. You can get faster RAM for cheaper than this now anyway:
