Does your motherboard support dual-channel or quad-channel? Also what are the timings on those chips? I'm going to assume the 8GB chips have better timings than the 16GB. Look up their model numbers here:

32 sticks of 1. If you can afford it - go for 64 sticks of .5
My old man brain tells me there is something funny about a "flash ram" thread but whatever. Next I will be giggling about eproms. Time to die Well, almost

From that screenshot I assume you're going with a pre-built system from a system integrator. They have all those bundles in 2x sets because they know that motherboard is dual-channel.

Basically when it comes to ram you just want to make sure you're getting "B-Die" ram (which means the best ram they make). There are specific combinations of MHz and CAS latency that will give you the best (stable) performance and have the most potential for overclocking.

Out of those I'd probably buy two sets of the 3600 kit and hope that it's the model F4-3600C17Q-32GTZR which is DDR4-3600 17-18-18-38 1.35V.

Here's a decent video on the topic if you're bored:

If you're ever curious about overclocking, this guy has been reviewing ram forever and has compiled results from most available kits. Scroll down to DDR4 kits

Nice, that thread pretty much confirms the 3600 kit is the fastest in this case.

DDR4-3200 CL 14 = 8.75 ns 9.69 ns 10.94 ns
DDR4-3600 CL 15 = 8.33 ns 9.17 ns 10.28 ns

3200 kit is a tiny bit slower. Probably a better value though (basically the same speed, don't know what the price disparity is).
