Hey friends, hope all is well.
Currently having a hard time deciding on ram. Between the two kits below which would you recommend?
For the extra $30 would it be worth grabbing a bdie kit? I plan to OC my system but im not sure if i will even notice the performance increase as im still using a 1070, and don't plan to upgrade for some time.

Thanks for the look :)

It's always nice to have Samsung b-die chips but 3600MHz RAM is just the beginning for Zen3 on 500 chipset platform but..... just having b-die doesn't guarantee any substantial OC. Without further OC (only XMP) I doubt you'd see any difference between those 2 sets.
