I'm thorn between:
Corsair's Vengeance RGB PRO (Model: CMW16GX4M2C3000C15W) GSkill's Trident Z RGB (Model: F4-3200C16D-16GTZR)
My indecision however, is more in terms of compatibility (working at advertised ram speed) rather than looks as I like their RGB effects equally. I plan on buying MSI's z370 Gaming Pro Carbon w/i7 8700k although, compatibility information seems vague. Some people claim it doesn't work at advertising speeds using this motherboard and points me to buy a different one yet, they don't answer a simple question such as 'Have you installed the latest BIOS version?'. Others would say 'It works' and they're clueless if it's running at advertised speed.
Both ram models are missing in the QVL list of that board; it might be outdated.
Anyone using this board and either one of those ram models please tell me, Is it running at advertised speeds (3000 MHz) in your rig? If so, please show me proof so I can have the peace of mind that I can buy my Ram sticks or, if I need to look for another motherboard manufacturer like Asus or Gigabyte? That would be a damn shame though because I loved the aesthetics of this board.
Thank you for your time.
