Best available DDR5 for ROG STRIX Z690-E . (2X16)

Level 7
What DDR5 ram is recommended for the ROG STRIX Z690-E . (2X16)

And, who has the ram in stock, where to buy them?

After a challenging time (sound problem) with a pre-built Dell XPS 8950 (I've returned it), I've decided to rebuild my ASRock. I got hooked with the three days (that it worked) of the XPS speed:

Proposed replacement parts:


Intel Core i9-12900K Desktop Processor 16 (8P+8E) Cores up to 5.2 GHz Unlocked LGA1700 600 Series Chipset 125W

and, if compatible, G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin SDRAM DDR5 5600 (PC5-44800) CL36-36-36-76 1.20V Dual Channel Desktop Memory Model F5-5600U3636C16GA2-TZ5RK

Any suggestions?

Much thanks, Kerry
