Hello,
I just want to make sure that the ram is compatible for my setup. I read that 3733mhz is the sweet spot. Is this ram good? I don't have any plans for oc atm. Will this run at 3733 when I enable the xmp profile on my board? I can get this ram for 87.99 atm. If it is not good can you recommend the best one with the same budget? Tia!

Either kit will do, just that G.Skill's tend to be more friendly when it comes to wiggle room, either undervolting or tightening timings with reduced frequency or perhaps bumping the volts a little to get tight timings and that high frequency. I'm speaking from my experience on the matter with rams and overclocking them, Corsair's tend to be a little picky on how much can be tuned on their kits outside of their Dominator series.

We might need a link to that reference.

The best I can see you going with that board is 3600MHz. Stick with a dual channel kit, ofc and make sure you're on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard. It's not really X.M.P, more like D.O.C.P in BIOS.

Why would that board be limited to 3600mhz? It’s rated to 4133mhz and I had no trouble OC’ing my Vengeance Pro 3200mhz to 3733mhz. However I did settle on 3600mhz as the performance difference is negligible and I could run a lower voltage.

That is the link. Been looking at Corsair Vengeance LPX 3600 CL18 as I can't find any CL16 in Amazon and I know they are not in my budget. There are different models for Vengeance LPX and they confuse me.
Anyways I looked some more and came to these options. Can you please check them out for me and recommend the best one.

I went with the cheaper g.skill. I saw reviews that it worked on b450 tomahawk max and it is 3600 cl16. Thank you!!! Can't wait to build my pc now!
