So far these sticks have delivered exactly what was advertised or higher. I Felt that 3200 was the minimum I should go for, and because of timings, it seemed to be the sweet spot below 3600 and not going to a CL16+ 2 x 16GB, plus 16GB seemed to be all I would need for the near future.
I have them running stable at 3400 MHz CL 14-14-14-34 via the BIOS utility, and have not had a single failure in stress testing.
The RGB is very nice, and they just look cool
The price wasn't too much to get them, at $160, vs some boring looking G.Skill X Jawripper or whatever
They were on my Mobo's QVL listing, the exact product with the X variant at the end (meaning they were compatible with AMD Ryzen, but I know that really isn't as much of an issue with 2nd Gen Ryzen)
Even though $160 wasn't too much comparatively, I believe I could have saved the $50 and gone with non-RGB, so I dunno.
I am still not sure about whether timing or speed is more important for my usage, I BELIEVE 3400/14 is faster than 3600/16 or 3600/15, but if someone can correct me on that I am more than welcome to learn
