Is there any low profile kit in the list? Planning to build an itx system when the 5700g is out, I am restricted by my heatsink for the ram.

Is that kit dual rank?

I don’t care about RGB so I don’t want to pay a premium for those RAM

side note: I emailed gskill asking if they have a list of dual rank kits

Unfortunately, there don't appear to be any reviews on the 32GB kit (there's only one review on the .com site but it's on the 16GB kit). That said, the timings are the same as the ones on the D50s, so it wouldn't be a stretch to "assume" they're the same sticks with a different heat spreader. If they're not DR you can always return them to Amazon stating that they aren't compatible (I did this with a set of Ballistix sticks a few weeks ago through their chat and the process was relatively painless).

Good luck with getting a clear answer out of CSR, folks have been trying and in many cases CSR just doesn't know, or the product has changed from when the specs were written up.

In the end i ended up with these parts which im pretty happy so far.

Noctua NH-12S $97
ASUS B550-F Wifi Gaming $115
32GB RipJaws DDR4-3600 (F4-3600C16D-32GVKC) $237 I can confirm these are DUAL RANK. They are Hynix chips incase anyone is wondering
