Default Vegeance LED with RGB Pro or LPX

Hi all.

I have an "old" Ryzen build with 2 x 8 GB Vengeance LED 3200MHz.

I'm looking to add an additional 16 GB, but the original LEDs are much too expensive.

I don't care about the visuals nor do I aim to push them beyond 3200 MHz. I would have opted for LPX, but the B modifier in the name makes me wonder about compatibility.


CMU16GX4M2C3200C16 Existing LED
CMW16GX4M2C3200C16 RGB Pro
CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 LPX


U, W and K refer to LED, RGP PRO and LPX, while C and B are modifiers (design, voltage, timing)
https://forums.tomshardware.com/thre...codes.3113155/

Could C and B could simply refer to the form factor? The timings are identical on the product pages.

Are there any benefits in using RGP PRO at 3200 MHZ?

"C" in the part number is the module revision version and would need to match the new kit you want to install.

More important is the version number of the modules as this determines the brand\type of memory chips used in the module.

It is not recommended to use two separate untested together kits as even if the part number and version numbers are the same, you could still have compatibility\stability issues.

They might work together, they might not.
