I need an advice guys, I recently switched to Ryzen 3700x from my older Intel 7700K, I was using a 16GBs of 3000MHz CAS 15 memory "Hynix Die" on my Intel reg & I have installed it to my Ryzen system & it's working fine with XMP profile enabled!

Am thinking of buying a new G.SKILL trident Z Neo 3600MHz CAS 16 memory (16-16-16-36) "Samsung B-Die" kit to benefit from the speed Ryzen system provides, should I go for that choice?

P.S. am using my system for gaming & some video editing most of the time.. would love to hear ur voice in this, ty in advance

My current rig:
CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x
MB: ASUS ROG Strix X570-F
Current memory kit: Corsair vengeance RGB PRO 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000MHz CAS15 (15-17-17-35) Hynix die
PSU: Seasonic M12II-850 Bronze EVO
GPU: ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2070 Super Advanced
SSD: Samsung SSD 970 EVO NVMe M.2 500GB as a system drive
HDD: 2+1TB SATA3 Seagate Barracuda 7200 for storage
Monitor: 24" Samsung curved gaming monitor CFG70 144MHz, 1ms Response Time

they dont even use same maker chipset and dont have similar jedec cas so if you want to run in trouble that the best way or get similar one that you already have .
Am not going to use both kits in the same system, I already sold my older intel CPU & MB, just kept the older corsair memory for my Ryzen build.. but thinking of pumping the speed by replacing my older 3000MHz corsair kit with a new G.skill 3600MHz kit & sell my corsair kit later on , that's the story in short words

I would change it out , great 3600 kit. I use it in both of my AMD setups. Leave the other set in the intel setup.
yeah, 3600MHz is the sweet spot for Ryzen 3 system, tho those kits with Samsung B-Die are expensive compared to the same kit using Hynix die which seems to make problems to Ryzen users by reading the reviews in newegg.. the price difference is ~ 40$ US
