Don't believe everything you read on Reddit.

Also you play Minecraft and other CPU bound games.
Not minecraft, ok say i do get a performance benefit from higher mhz which i probably will, price wise it isn't worth it and most the ram is sold out, over in america which i'd love to be ram is around $100 which is great but not here, that kit i sent you is the cheapest i could find for 3000mhz 8gb.

From what I can tell the ram you picked out should work fine. I can't promise anything but it will do the job. Looks like the same SK Hynix chips as is my Corsair Vengeance kit.

Well a QVL list is just a list of ram that has been tested so it should "probably" not have thousands of issues, i'd love to get this one https://www.umart.com.au/G-Skill-TRIDENT-Z-8GB-KIT-2X4GB-F4-3200C16D-8GTZB-DDR4-3000MHZ_36825G.html however $39 more, may be more reliable but ram is ram i'm sure the evo potenza ram should be ok
Right considering your issues though tested = safe bet. However I wouldn't call any current ram really "unreliable" its more about performance and compatibility. I think it will probably work fine.

It does a bit. But TBH I trust the Geil memory brand more. Also the better timings may negate that difference, and its $15 cheaper. As long as you're at or over 3000 you're good.
Here is the frametime on my spare ddr3 motherboard with a stick of ram that wasn't damaged by my old psu, two possibilities, ram slots on the motherboard are broken or all of my ram is not broken

Interesting but still different processor etc.
I'm honestly curious, my spare ddr3 motherboard is alot less worse then my current one because it's got a different stick of ram in it, since i've been dealing with this for so long either it's normal for areas to feel slightly different via more to render compared to less or something else in my pc is bad which is super unlikely

Could you please tell me which components can actually cause bad frametimes?

Bad frametimes can be caused by many things. Most commonly would be a CPU that can't keep up with the GPU. Next would be insufficient VRAM in the GPU. After that would be weak memory/bad memory/too little memory. Could also be caused by a slow drive (not getting the data into VRAM fast enough).
