    Still the 3600 CL15 will be better than the 3200 CL15 right?

    I just bought it a couple hours ago.
    Yes 3600C15 is better than 3200C15 but the speed will be negligible. As posted above, make sure that the sticks are in the QVC list for the MoBo.

    It's in the QVC list so I think I chose right.

    3600mhz CL 15.

    Will try to get it close to 4000mhz relaxing times a bit and benchmarks to see differences.

    I can overclock my 3600 CL16 kit to 4000 just by raising the DRAM voltage. No other timing adjustments needed.

    And btw, it's a RGB set.

    You should be able to run it at 4000 c17 with 1.4 or 1.45V tops.

    Can you put memories that are not in the QLV list?

    The exact model is this one:

    f4-4400c19d-16gtzkk

    Cheaper than the one I got and I could reduce the timings and speed to 4000mhz and CL17.

    Not sure if they will work properly.

    You can use memory that's not on the QVL but it's at your own risk. They may not work well/at all, or if they do they may be unstable. Can't adjust the timings if the system won't boot up at all to go into the bios, because the ram isn't recognised by the board. I never recommend using ram that's not on the QVL

    Than you very much.

    You save from some trouble and money lost.

    Above 4000mhz, it depends on the motherboard (Asus ROG boards have an edge) and on the goodness of your cpu memory controller. Personally I wouldn't risk if it's not on the QVL list. Moreover a kit binned for frequency and not latency like this one is not "guaranteed" that it will run at lower freq/lower latency. It is a bit of a gamble - you could need to raise voltage and perhaps stick with something like 4100 c18.
