Any real difference between these two kits?

In actual performance, no the RGB/colour whatever.

Planning an i9 9900K build, settled on G.Skill 32G (2x16G) F4-3200C14D-32GTZKW. https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/hjH48d/gskill-tridentz-series-32gb-2-x-16gb-ddr4-3200-memory-f4-3200c14d-32gtzkw

The retailer has said they aren't totally sure they'll actually get new stock, so I'm looking at alternatives. Which I've gone and had a look at their site and picked out G.Skill 32GB (2x 16GB) F4-3600C17D-32GTZR DDR4 3600Mhz Trident Z RGB

https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/dMjWGX/gskill-tridentz-rgb-series-32gb-2-x-16gb-ddr4-3600-memory-f4-3600c17d-32gtzr

They are basically the same price. The one I've ordererd is CL14 3200mhz, and the 'backup' is CL17 3600mhz.

As per title, is there any major difference in what these two kits will do? I don't care about the RGB. I'll wait a week or so and get back to them. Hopefully the CPU or at least the motherboards will be out around then so I can pick them all up at the same time. Thank you :)

No major difference. The CAS 17 is a bit slower, but that is only every going to show up in benchmarks. You would never notice a difference.

Thanks. I figured that was probably the case.
