After a decade, I am building a new PC with components mentioned in the title. This will be strictly a gaming computer, as I have a fast workstation laptop for work. The system will drive a WFH [email protected] fps monitor, thus, I am currently GPU bound. Sooner or later the monitor will go back to work and I may buy a 1440p UW monitor potentially upgrading the GPU. I will OC the components at one point.

Is it worth to go for Samsung B-die? Which is the better option?
These are currently on offer for 200 £:
8Pack TEAM GROUP EDITION 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4 PC4-28800C16 3600MHZ DUAL CHANNEL KIT CAS 16-16-16-38

These are ~20£ more expensive:
8Pack TEAM GROUP EDITION 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4 PC4-25600C14 3200MHZ DUAL CHANNEL KIT CAS 14-14-14-31

Or are these for 120 £ sufficient?
CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX BLACK 32GB (2X16GB) 3600 MHZ AMD RYZEN TUNED DDR4 MEMORY DUAL KIT CAS 18-22-22-42

I don’t mind too much to pay the extra price for the 8Packs if they are the better option.

If you aren't going to manually tune your memory get the cheapest 3600mhz kit you can find - the fact that you are asking this question at all tells me you aren't into memory tuning :)

It's never worth buying premium memory if you aren't going to spend a few days manually tuning it, all memory is equally terrible when using XMP and Auto values.

You're right, I am not to up to date. My former i5 2500k overclocked well, but the RAM not. I don't mind spending time on the new system though.
