"Worth it"? To 99.9999999% of users, no.

If all you want is the outright 'best' of everything, regardless of cost then +$40 on a kit of memory is the least of your worries.

In short, no, it's not "worth it".

I actually purchased an open box special of the cheaper ram you listed for $68. It turned out to be Hynix DJR memory. It wouldn't run at the xmp frequency of 3600 with my Ryzen 2600x/motherboard combo, however with the use of Dram Calculator I found I could run it at 3400 cl14(with somewhat loose sub timings). At that setting it should actually outperform 3600 cl16 memory, so I'm happy with the purchase. Manually configuring ram bios setting isn't for everyone though.

Ryzen 2000 doesn't work at 3600+MT/s without Samsung B-die or Hynix A-Die(AFR) and a ton of tweaking or older 3600-4000MT/s 4GB modules. The highest speed you can reasonably expect to reach is 3466MT/s 2x8GB.
