Hello,
I have ordered this RAM: G Skill Flare X 16GB (2x8GB)
DDR4-3200MHz CL16-18-18-38 1.35V
SKU Code: F4-3200C16D-16GFX

On the G Skill website: it's mentioned that it is compatible with B450 Tomahawk MAX motherboard. LINK
But on MSI Website: this RAM is not mentioned. LINK

Though it is advertised as "Designed for the latest AMD Ryzen platforms". Is it compatible with my motherboard?

My build
(so far): https://in.pcpartpicker.com/list/zMMTbX

Specs:
CPU:
AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Mobo: MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX
GPU: Gigabyte 1660 6gb OC
Memory: 16gb (8gb x 2) DDR4 3200
PSU: Corsair RMX 650W 80+ Gold
Storage (OS): 500 GB Samsung EVO SSD
Storage (Files): 1 TB Intel 660p M.2

Please let me know.
Thanks.

MSI can't test every memory out there. Since G-Skill shows it compatible it should be good!
Thanks for the response.

Yeah, acc. to G SKill, its compatible with B450 Tomahawk MAX.
The CL-14 version of this RAM is mentioned on the list. But this isn't. This is CL-16 by the way.

How can I know whether it's a Samsung B-die memory or not?

Email G-Skill or ask in their forums. I asked them about memory for my boards a couple of years ago and they told me the set they made for them. I passed on theirs because theirs were CL 11 and I found some crucial that was CL9 and actually runs at CL8. Here is the CL 14 all you had to do is run their Configurator. https://www.gskill.com/product/165/170/1535961324/F4-2933C14D-16GFXFlare-XDDR4-2933MHz-CL14-14-14-34-1.35V16GB-(2x8GB) But it is lower frequency
Edit here is the 3200 14CL their Configurator is strange https://www.gskill.com/product/165/170/1535961634/F4-3200C14D-16GFXFlare-XDDR4-3200MHz-CL14-14-14-34-1.35V16GB-(2x8GB)
