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
