Hi,

I'm currently working on my first build (https://pcpartpicker.com/list/CMJYzN), not all parts are finalized as I'm thinking to wait for upcoming GPU or CPU. While I was looking up ram options and the most optimal ram for ryzen 3950x- 3900 would probably be 3600mhz c16, and I was looking to get this one (https://www.amazon.com/G-Skill-Trident-PC4-28800-CL16-19-19-39-F4-3600C16D-32GTZNC/dp/B07WTS8T2W ), but I later found out there's a B-die variation with tighter timing and Samsung B-die. However, it is like $50 USD more than the initial g.skillz ram. I was wondering there will be any performance difference by going B-die for an extra 50 USD.

I'm still new towards PC building and really not sure what sort of performance difference variation of ram brings.

Thank you

Not worth it in my opinion, Cl16 with so much RAM is quite respectable.
