I have a msi b450 tomahawk motherboard and ryzen 5 2600. The motherboard has a maximum ram speed of 3466 (oc). Can I install Gskill Trident Neo ram at a speed of 3600?

The F4-3200C14D-16GTZN Trident Z Neo RAM kit is b-die so hopefully should work but you might not get the maximum frequency if you get the 3600 version F4-3600C14D-16GTZN, F4-3600C14D-16GTZNB etc. As the motherboard QVL goes up to an approx. maximum of 3333 MHz you won't find any RAM kits tested at 3600.

The motherboard supports b-die as https://www.gskill.com/product/165/168/1536289466/F4-3200C14Q2-64GTZTrident-ZDDR4-3200MHz-CL14-14-14-34-1.35V64GB-(8x8GB) looks like b-die and is found on the QVL as F4-3200C14Q2-64GTZ. 3200 CL14 kits I would guess are all likely b-die.

So, you're advise me to get the 3200?

The kit will 'likely' work as b-die will work in most motherboards without issue but I have doubts that you will get it to work at 3600 with the ryzen 5 2600. There are no guarantees if it is not in the QVL. My RAM kit is b-die and is not on my motherboards QVL. b finder shows a lot of Gskill Trident z Neo as b die. https://benzhaomin.github.io/bdiefinder/ So long as its b-die you have a good chance of the RAM working.
