This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This was a deal before, it's pre order now, but obviously some more coming in, ordered it last time, over clocks really well, 4000mhz @ the same timings, ordered another 16gb because why not.

This or 3200 CL14 with i7 Gigabyte Auros Z390 Master?

3200 CL14 is 8.75ns
3600 CL17 is 9.4ns
4000 CL17 is 8.5ns

These overclocked to 4000 easily for me, but you won't notice any real world differences with Intel especially, upto you, really.
Is this Samsung b die ?

Yeah, though a lower bin than the really expensive stuff (which is usually CL16 at 3600MHz).

Yes, and although lower 'binned' - overclocks very well, not an issue.
What sort of timings will this run at 3200 and at 4000 ?

You apparently got lucky with your kit and that's great, but that doesn't mean other people will be so fortunate. I've certainly had "bad" B-die that didn't like overclocking at all, even pumping 1.5V through it (which is perfectly safe if you keep it cool). Ultimately, these ICs were only judged good enough for a lower-grade, cheaper CL17 kit for some reason. Companies go to great lengths with binning them, since they can sell the best ones for an outrageous mark-up. Being able to hit 4000MHz at these same timings and voltage would mean some truly exceptional ICs. Have you properly stress tested everything (1000%+ all threads in Memtest etc.) to make sure it's really stable?

Entirely depends on your setup really. It'll vary from board to board and even chip to chip, though most modern Intel CPUs have a very strong IMC. Motherboards are a different matter. Some are just a bit crap at memory overclocking, be it due to BIOS issues or cheaping out on the number of layers or using T-topology (great if you have four sticks, not so much for two).

Well for a start memtest is absolutely awful, but yes, I've tested my RAM overclock with Karhu's software.

I never said I was using the same voltage, I said timings. I'm using 1.4v, and I guarantee the second kit will do the same, in my experience of overclocking in the last 15 years is, most people don't know how to do it properly and rely on the newer methods of motherboards doing it for you without even understanding a thing.
£169.99, ordered a set earlier, thanks.
