Hi, I am ordering a gaming PC from a online store.

These are the specs I have now:

The ram HyperX Fury listed abovee is the one I get for free. But i can also choose one of these by paying around 60-120 USD.

1:
HyperX Fury RGB DDR4 2666MHz 16GB
2x8GB 2666MHz (PC4-21300) DDR4 CL16, XMP 2.0


2:
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 3600MHz 16GB
2x8GB DDR4 3600MHz (PC4-28800) CL18, black

3:
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 3200MHz 16GB
2x8GB DDR4 3200MHz (PC4-25600) CL16 XMP 2.0, sort

4:
HyperX Fury DDR4 2666MHz 16GB
2x8GB 2666MHz (PC4-21300) DDR4 CL16, XMP 2.0, sort

5:
HyperX Fury DDR4 3200MHz 16GB
2x8GB 3200MHz DDR4 CL18


6:
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2933MHz 16GB
2x8GB, CL16, UDIMM, Single rank, RoHS compliant

7:
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2666MHz 16GB
2x8GB DDR4 2666MHz (PC4-21300) CL16, XMP 2.0, sort

8:
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz 16GB
2x8GB DDR4 3200MHz (PC4-25600) CL16, XMP 2.0, sort

9:
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 2666MHz 16GB
2x8GB DDR4 2666MHz (PC4-21300) CL16 XMP 2.0, sort

10:
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 2933MHz 16GB
2x8GB, CL16, UDIMM, Single rank, RoHS compliant



Should I keep the one I get for free or should I change to one of these options from 1 - 10?
Feel free to give me two options to choose from.
Also give me an idea of why I should keep the one for free or change to one of the options?

Thank you for the help!

G.Skill Trident Z Neo DDR4 3600Mhz 16GB
2x8GB 3600MHz DDR4, CL16, XMP 2.0, RGB

3:
G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 3600Mhz 16GB
2x8GB 3600MHz DDR4, CL16, XMP 2.0



Which of these should I choose?
Option No. 2 and 3 has better speed and timing than all of your other choices. If prices are same or within striking distance between 2 and 3, I will pick the Trident kit. Ideally the Trident kits are more expensive as they are known to be a bit superior. If there is too much price difference between Trident and Ripjaws, then go for the cheaper one. In day to day operations there is no difference between them.
 
First, get rid of that cooler if it comes at extra cost or can be swapped for a better part. The stock cooler is fine for starters and that Hyper 212 is not too much better than the stock cooler. If it comes for free then that's a different issue. If you want better cooling then go for a bigger cooler.

As for the RAM, the thumb rule is Higher Frequency with Tighter Timing. The free one is 3200mhz CL18. The best options are Nos. 2(3600mhz CL18), 3(3200mhz CL16) and 8(again 3200mhz CL16), with No. 3 and 8 being the same with and without RGB. These 3 will essentially perform around the same range, but the higher frequency of No. 2(3600mhz CL18) will eventually benefit in the long run.
So, the choice is simple, No. 2(3600mhz CL18).

I have these coolers I can choose by paying little bit more:

1:
CM ML120L V2 ARGB
120mm Radiator, 120mm ARGB Fan 650-2000 RPM, ARGB pump
(35 USD)

2:
CM ML240L V2 ARGB Komplett Edition
240mm Radiator, 2x120mm ARGB Fan 650-2000 RPM, ARGB pump
(53 USD)



Which one do you recommend? The Hyper 212 comes for free.

1. Same thing.
120mm AIO = @ 140w
Hyper212 = @ 140w

You'd be paying extra for same performance but with more unicorn puke rgb added.

2. 240mm AIO cooler is a good upgrade, if you want better temp regulation and/or a quieter possible pc at higher loads.

Option 2 is your better choice.
If the cost is much over a 100 bucks forget it.
Go with the stock ram and test the machine for a couple of weeks.
If it test ok order a set of these.
https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=50001455 100007611 601349177 601203950 601275375&Manufactory=1455

That's a bump up from option 2.
