  • Worth exchanging Trident Z Neo for Trident Z RGB for z490 board?

    Please excuse me if this is a question that you see often, but I haven't been able to find a definitive answer.

    I have an Asus ProArt Z490 that I am trying to buy the best possible RAM for. I ordered 2 dual kits of the Trident Z Neo 216GB for a total of 64GB. Then I noticed that it says "designed for AMD Ryzen" everywhere. But I also have read that it will run on Intel boards. If so, will it still be optimal though? Should I return it and get Trident Z RGB instead?

    And if I do get the Trident Z RGB instead, would 416GB or 232GB work equally well with the board or is one better than the other?

    I appreciate any insight!

    Thank you

    I know it's late, but both are in your board's QVL. Neo is just a marketing thing, memory chips are the same.
    It's only the other way around that has problems with 3000 15-15-15 and 3600 15-15-15 which are not in QVLs for AMD boards for the reason AMD has problems with odd CL. But I just set them at 14-15-15 and they also work.
