Hello,
I am planning to buy the ram indicated in the topic to go with my Ryzen 5 3600 and MSI B450 Gaming Pro CArbon. Problem is I am not from the US and I see that the model CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 is famous in amazon for my spec but the model that I see here in the Philippines is CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16. Are they different? What is the difference if there is any? They both have the same spec. I just want to make sure so I know whether to buy from amazon or I can just buy local which will make warranty purposes easier. Thank you!

It seems the CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16 has a higher SPD speed, though.
Yes you are right. They both can run at 3200 with latency 16-18-18-36.
But... they have different SPD Latency and SPD Speed.
Difference is...
CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 SPD Latency: 15-15-15-36 / SPD Speed: 2133MHz

CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16 SPD Latency: 16-18-18-35 / SPD Speed: 2666MHz

So which is better? In amazon the price difference is around usd10 which I don't mind paying for as long as I get the better one.
And I believe both are compatible with MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon Max Wifi with Ryzen 5 3600x.

They both have a tested CL of 16, which is what you should expect when you buy one or the other. They also both have a tested speed of 3200MHz. You can increase their speeds to 3200MHz using the XMP profile. I say go with the second one listed.
