Currently, I have 32gb of

However, for work reasons (multiple VMs) I need to add 32gb of RAM. Should I pay £300 for another 32gb of the above leaving me with 4 sticks or should I just buy a 64gb kit in one go? Something like:-

or the significantly cheaper:-

Are there any better kits available for < £400?

My current 32gb is rated very highly and has tight timings but I have heard of difficulties of running 4 sticks of RAM, and having to loosen timings in some circumstances.

My CPU is an Amd 5950x, on a Gigabyte Aorus master motherboard.

Thanks in advance.

I would get a 2x32GB kit, I have G.skill F4-3600C16D-64GTZN. That way you only have 4 ranks total. Running 8 ranks (4x16 GB) will be challenging on Ryzen.

There are a number of C16 3600MHz 2x32GB kits out there though, no need to drop to C18.

Thanks. Ended up ordering a 64gb Gskill kit from elsewhere. CL18 but is 3800mhz so hopefully I can tweak it down to ClL16. The kits claims to be designed and tested for x570 and Ryzen 5000 CPUs so hopefully all be well.
