Default Seeking advice about RAM

Hi,

I am in the process of assembling a new rig, and so far, I have gotten everything but the RAM set. Have been researching a lot these past few weeks, but I am just not sure which to go for, have been getting some mixed signals.

I am looking at these two modules:

CMW16GX4M2Z3600C18
CMT32GX4M4C3200C16

I will be getting 32GB of either, so don’t look at the amount of the packages.

Anyone who mind posting some advice on which is best, or if I should be looking at something entirely different? I would prefer Corsair RAM, since it will match the rest of my build, case, fans etc.

The rest of the components are:

Intel Core i9-9900K
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI FORMULA
Samsung 970 Evo Plus MZ-V7S1T0BW 1TB
ASUS ROG Strix 1060 OC (from previous build, will have to make do for now)
EVGA SuperNOVA 850 P2
Hydro X custom water cooling

Thanks.

Corsair, yes they make the best RAM modules......

But from all the research I did, I couldn't come up with which one of those two same choices you have but from what I can tell about all the reviews I saw, the Dominator ICs are binned individually, hence the extra price.

Whichever kit you choose, it will be a great choice. You just have to ask yourself if paying for better ICs is worth the extra $50. For me it was.
Dominators are the best of the best.

Thumbs up

Thanks Nazgul

I was leaning towards the dominator, but it can never hurt to ask for a 2nd opinion.
