Seems a decent price for these
These are Micron E-Die too.

Black available here same price.

The 3600 MHz CL16 is probably worth the extra £15 (if pairing with AMD), it may only be a few % faster but given that most people are probably spending about £1k on their build that could be worth it. - Amazon deal already listed on HUKD
Also 3000MHz CL15 available for £5 less which would be on par and seen some evidence that it would be quicker by margins
Good partner for Ryzen 5 3600 CPU & MSI B450I GAMING PLUS AC Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard?

The 3200 CL16 has the same 10ns latency. I'd buy the 3200 as it has the same latency but higher throughput.

I'd go 3600 CL16 (there was a ballistic kit posted earlier for cheap). Or 3200 CL14 if you want 3200.

3200 CL16 is worse of both worlds.

Was digging through Reddit posts because I saw it cheaper and wondered if it would make much difference, depending on the application and work load there was basically no difference but it's only a fiver so for out of the box ease I'd probs pay the extra but it's an option if it drops any further
No rgb no heat

Do you have a link for that Ballistix kit? Can't seem to find it
Do you REALLY think the Micron Factory is turning out all these different speeds of RAM? Or would there be any small chance at all that they might make the stuff and mark it up as necessary to sell to the market in question? I haven't had a stick of 3000mhz ram in the last year or more that didn't run no sweat at 3600. I do however have issues with 4000mhz ram running at the speed it is supposed to XMP at. Regardless of Mainboard quality, BIOS, CPU Gen etc? Hint, hint!! Crucial is always FAR more tolerant than Corsair Vengeance, so given the choice of the two, I would always go Micron. If you aren't a brand 'snob', CCL are doing Adata Gammix D10 3000mhx 8gb units for £32 odd a stick. This is obviously new stock as older stuff was terrible, but this happily tears along at 3600 too (16, 18, 18, 39), which would equate to change out of £65... Apart from a Benchmark reporting any difference to you (unless you have the £1200 for a GPU), then you will not notice any difference at all...

Apparently the MSI B450I only supports up to 3466 mhz? The cruical website is telling me the 3600mhz is not compatible
Ordered the 2x8gb 2666mhz for my old B250 set up (only goes up to 2400mhz) it was only £62.99 so thanks op.

No it's not these will hit that so why pay extra when no need to.

You never know with memory, I had a corsair LPX 2666 2x4gb in storage (one of the latest revisions) and I put it in a new Ryzen 3600/B450m Aorus and it is running at 3200/16-18-18-32 @ 1.35v (I havent tried any further!). On the other pc I have also Corsair LPX 3200 2x8gb (intel Z170) and can't go any higher than 3300!

So have you tried the Adata Gammix you are talking around? it sounds like a good deal if they can run up to 3600mhz, and a good match for the Ryzen 3600 system I am building

I would hazard a guess that about 90% of them are running at 3600 no problems, but as I sell systems, I dont send them out over locked as it will create the potential for a blue screen here and there and that's the last thing I want happening. As you e also found, corsair vengeance isn't as good as crucial ballistix which is annoying!!
