IDK What's different about my kit but on my Gigabyte B450 board w/ Ryzen 2600X and the RAM at 3200MHz 16-18-18-35 I score 100th percentile 117%... https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/23863164

Mine runs at 3200 with 14 15 15 34 CR1 timings at 3200 and 16 17 17 36 CR1 at 3600, so very happy because this is very high performance. Also low profile means no problem with coolers...

Not the best RAM in the world but it's enough for most. Usually doesn't cost much either.

Not a good idea. CL 16 on 3200mhz ram is what I have currently ...thats likely Hynix CJR (or potentially even lower end) And they aren't very easy to Overclock for Ryzen in particular and regardless getting tight timings on them is an issue . Avoid anything 3200mhz that is above CL14
