G.Skill Trident Z 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory @79.98 ( Unsure of it's IC type, If using this ram I can opt for a MOBO with a lower max ram clock like Steel Legend B450m)

G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory @$78.99 ( Checked on https://benzhaomin.github.io/bdiefinder/ and confirmed as B-die )

Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory

Starting a build using either the ryzen 5 2600x or Ryzen 7 2700 ( still debating) and an 8GB RX580 GPU more than likely. Mobo is likely to be the B450F ROG Strix.
Initially I intended to get RGB'd ram, but prices for B-die RGB are high, let alone decent clocks and CAS latenecies on those models.

Titles I'll be playing on this system are; Tom Clancy R6, CS:GO, Sea of Thieves, Fortnite, Ages of Empires, and Path of Exile.

My biggest concern is, am I leaving noticeable performance on the table by going with a fair priced RGB kit as opposed to a more compatible b-die kit, which i've heard numerous times responds well to Ryzen. I'm entirely ok at this point with using a better performing kit, especially if it can achieve better stability at 1080p for me.

Thanks in advance~

Historically, Corsair, and especially their Dominator Platinum line of memory modules use B-die Samsung memory IC's (integrated chips) exclusively...this remains my recommendation...
