Hi,

Just wanted to make sure that this RAM works fine with 3600 ryzen and potentially with 3900x/5900 later on. I've read that odd CL numbers would be bad for ryzen but is this okey ?

My motherboard is MSI B550 Carbon gaming wifi. Other option is to get 3200MHz CL16 kit.

Kingston (2x16gb) 32GB 3600MHz 17CL

If you want to insure compatibility make sure that kit is in the QVL list for that board.

CL17 is okay, just make sure to disable Gear Down Mode and run Command Rate 2T. The reason why Ryzen "doesn't like" odd timings is because by default, Gear Down Mode is enabled which only likes even timings. So you'll probably go to CL18 automatically. Switching gear down mode to off should yield like zero performance losses.
