Hi, so I want to buy RAM sticks for a new system but the more I google the more confused I get.

I have two different RAM sticks to chose from and I'm uncertain which is faster now.

3600 CL18 or 3200 CL16 (I used the British links solely for the sake of the language. I won't shop in Britain)

The nanoseconds are pretty much the same but the 3200 CL16 has really good Black Friday deal.
Alternatively, should I look for something better or would that be an overkill? 3600 CL14

I'm currently rocking an 8year old Intel i7 with DDR3 1333-something Mhz RAM so pretty much anything is an upgrade at this point....
I want to throw a good gaming system together with an Asus X570 + Ryzen 5800X. (I bought the MB today with a good deal but I'll probably wait until after Christmas when Ryzen is in stock again and isn't overpriced anymore)
