FlareX comes with a CL (latency)of 16 and a CL of 14 . Be carfull with the Ripjaw series, some of them are "not compatible" with some mobos. Always chk the motherboatd site for memory QVL. If the memory is not on the list they may not honor your warranty.

FlareX is the more expensive better line of memory. It is designed for use with the latest AMD Ryzen platforms.
If FlareX is the more expensive lineup how come it has slower speed? 2400 MHz vs 2800 MHz on the Ripjaws? Does 2400 CAS 14 latency make up for the slower speed on the FlareX vs 2800 CAS 16 on Ripjaws? I haven't been able to clock my Ripjaws one past 2666 MHz on CAS 15 at 1.35V.
