Hello, what happens os that im interested on buying a ram kit but i dont know which one to buy .

Fisrt kit
G.skill 3600mhz cl16
Second kit
G.skill 3200mhz cl14

I've seen a lot of benchmarks of cl 16 vs cl14 but the performance is the same , so why basically buy a expensive ram if i can buy a cheaper one? And yes im conscient that timings are very different , but why have lower timings?

The ram i listed before are for a ryzen5 3600x processor for the doubts

G.skill 3600MHz @ CL16 = 8.889nS Absolute Access Latency
G.skill 3200MHz @ CL14 = 8.750nS Absolute Access Latency

Your 3200MHz @ CL14 option is a better potential performer.

but morevperformer in this case means more fps? or smoother gameplay?

My computer use is exclusively for productivity, and have never done gaming, so I don't know.

All I can tell you is that you will have lower Absolute Memory Access Latency with the G.Skill 3200MHz @ 14CL pairing.
