G.Skill Trident Z RGB

I want to get the trident z rgb 3200Mhz ram for my new build but after hearing some compatibility issues with it I am skeptical. I was wondering if anyone out there would be able to tell me that the ram would work (with rgb) on the MSI B350 Gaming Plus?

Also if possible can you tell me if it would work for any of the lower Mhz rams?

    Thta ram will work fine on that board, in fact it loves it, in may not run at full speed just yet, but it will do 2933mhz for now until they sort bioses out.

    Why would you want to go for a lower speed ram ? RyZen benefits from high speed ram.

    Thank you! I was asking about that because i thought maybe lower speed will work if higher speeds didn't.

  3. If you want it to work at those higher speeds more reliably, get the CL14 ram over the CL16 ram.

    Is it a considerable difference beteen the CL14 and CL16 ram?

    The CL14 is samsung B die chips and the CL16 is Hynix chips, everyday use, you wont notice any difference, but you pocket will, the CL14 kit is about $50 more, not worth it anymore, escpecailly as AMDs big fix is just about to come out in a month or so.
