Which one should i choose?

KLEVV DDR4 bolt x series (non kit)
2x8gb DDR4 3200mhz 16-18-18-38 1t

Or

GSKILL DDR4 sniper x
2x8gb DDR4 3600mhz 19-19-19-39 2t

The g skill kit is $7.88 more

Currently i'm running a z370 and an 8700

I'm kind of concerned of the 2t command rate on the g skill kit

Thanks!

I'd lean towards the Klevv, but is that brand even on the motherboard's Qualified Vendor's List?

If not, then I'd say the G. Skill, but the CL19 on it blows. CL16 or lower for a 3600mhz kit would be better.
CL19 is what one would normally find on a 4000 kit.

the klevv is non kit (2 separate package of 8gb stick), won't there be any kind of compatibility issues? especially running at these speed?

also, yes, both RAM is on my motherboard's QVL, but i can only find the 32 gigs version of the g skill kit

Oh.
If that's the case, I, and everyone else, can't provide a concrete answer regarding that.
Mixing ram is always a gamble; sometimes it works, sometimes not. Even separate kits that LOOK alike won't be the same and can still fail.

So, by default, I'd have to go with the G. Skill kit.
Are these 2 really your only options though?

there are many more 3200mhz c16 kit that are priced the same as the gskill; some are more expensive
such as:

G.SKILL - F4-3200C16D-16GFX
TEAM - TF9D416G3200HC16C01
PATRIOT - PVR416G320C6K
Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16
dont want rgb though
