Currently the internet is completely covered with fear about compatibility with the ryzen CPU's and TridentZ RGB DDR4.
My question is short before i install these currently in my hands and newly bought rams,
Will they work on RGB control if i dont overclock my system with the ryzen 1600x? Or will they break with a '' SPD corruption'' whatever that is, over a time?

Should i change the TridentZ - F4-3200C16D-16GTZR ( 8GB HYPNIX A-Die )

To the                        Trident Z - F4-3200C14D-16GTZR ( 8GB Samsung B-Die )



just bought for a ryzen 1600x CPU with ASUS rog strix x370-f gaming motherboard.
i'm no PC expert but all i can wonder is why do people have good results with the samsung B-Die over the hypnix A-die?
But more importantly... what will/should work?
the 16D or 14D...


I hope sincerely for a quick reply so i can return the rams tomorrow if necessary for other ones that are '' compatible when touching RGB control ''.
