Hello!

Currently I have a Ryzen 2600x, on a " TUF B450M GAMING PLUS Motherboard"
The ram I have right now is a " T-Force Dark 2400mhz 14 - 16 - 16 - 31 - 56" (D.O.C.P enabled in bios, ratings found from CPU-Z)
Im looking to upgrade to a better kit, I've found two on amazon and im having trouble figuring out which one is better then the other.

https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3200MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B0143UM4TC/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=ram&qid=1607891266&s=electronics&sr=1-3&th=1#customerReviews

https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-PC4-28800-Desktop-Memory/dp/B07RM39V5F/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=ram&qid=1607893377&refinements=p_n_feature_five_browse-bin:677429011&rnid=673240011&s=pc&sr=1-4

I've heard lots of people say lower latency is better then frequency and something along the lines of that, could anyone just point me in the right direction? ( Or send a better ram kit) (Im not even sure my motherboard supports 3600 mhz lol )
Thank you in advance!

Heres your support list. Check to see if the specific kits are supported.

If both are supported, go cheaper, you wont notice a difference.

How do I find the part number on the ram kits that I have seen on Amazon?

You having problems with your current ram? For the minimal possible performance increase per dollar it just doesn't seem cost effective to me if you're not having technical problems with your current ram. I might be considering just adding to it if the current slots/sticks config would support that and your under 32GB now.

I can think of a lot of other ways to spend that money.

Anyway, just my 2 cents. :)

Mixing ram kits is a bad idea
I don't think he's intending to, I think he's talking about replacing. At least that's how I read it. It may have sounded like I was suggesting that, but I wasn't. :)

I might consider adding more of the same ram but I guess I didn't specify that. :(
