Im not sure if this question has been asked previously, but im a bit stumped....

Anyways im getting the 12700, B660 wifi board choosing 32gb DDR4 setup. Now the thing is should I get 3200mhz cl16 or 3600mhz cl16?
The price difference is 3200mhz R2349 ($149) and 3600mhz ($216) is R3399. Is it really worth getting the 3600mhz both options are the Trident z.
The closest thing to it corsair vengeance 3600mhz cl18 @R3k.
Most places prices are way too much or out of stock so its down to those 2 or 3 units.

Can someone please give me some advice.
Thanks in advance. :sleep:

Unless your looking to squeeze every drop of blood from the pc just get the 3200.

Here's the thing.
There is not a good answer for everyone.

It depends on what you're doing.
For most people DDR4-3200 is fast enough.
But if you're a professional gamer, or if you have some other special use cases, then DDR4-3600 might give you that extra edge.

Thanks for the reply.
Im going to be doing hard core gaming and video editing just the basics i guess.
Im not sure whats the huge difference between the 2 besides the 1% low which ain't that much.
Maybe I should use that extra cash on a watercolor instead...
Upgrading to a new pc always gets me lost, the more i look at it the more options I get the more questions I have. :sweatsmile:

Yeah, having good cooling is always a solid improvement of the system.
