What is the difference between
CMK16GX4M2B3000C15
CMK16GX4M2C3000C15

Anyone has a clue?
Nothing substantial apparently, on amazon it says the C variant is bigger in size but that could just be user error, the pictures look the same. So it's mostly physical differences, nothing software related.

The Ballistix Sport LT 3000 Cl15 is a very good kit. Overclocks beastly. Got mine to 3800 16-19-16-34 @1.44v
If you want to manually overclock that kit is worth its very fair price.

As long as that's nothing to do with the performance of the kit, then it's fine with me, because I m considering getting one of them later in my build.

If I put it into a B365 system, would that work? Thanks in advance.
RAM overclocking is dependant on the module, the mainboard and the cpu memory controller.
My results on a B450-i strix with a R7 3700x just show that the memory modules themselves are capable of quite good overclocks.
I dont know if that will work on a B365 board. Its 22 nm and rather dated tech because its just a refresh of the 100 and 200 lineup. I would personally not use such a board. Shame that you "hate amd" otherwise a b450 board and lets say a 3600 would perform quite good for their price.

If I use B450 like https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/TUF-B450-PRO-GAMING/ , does this motherboard support overclocking the R5 3600?

The Ryzen 3000 series got a pretty smart boosting behavior, so that it is pretty pointless to apply all-core overclocks like you would do on an intel cpu.
The mainboard is compatible with Ryzen 3000 with the latest Bios versions. But the board needs to come with that or you need an older Ryzen to flash the Bios.
The most easy way would be the purchase of an MSI Max board like the MSI Tomahawk Max. Those are guaranteed Ryzen 3000 ready. Or you buy a used b450 board like I did and ask the seller for a Bios update before shipping.

Copy that, thanks!
