I am starting a project with all used, or low cost parts found on eBay or Kijiji. And I have decided to put 32 GB of RAM in it since the computer is Xeon based and designed to use it, and it is so cheap on eBay. There are two types of RAM that I have found for a really good price, one set is made by Samsung (Costing $84 USD) and the other Hynix (Costing $72 USD). I have worked with both brands countless times in the past, but which would be a better buy, or does it matter? What do you guys think?

Probably does not matter - Apple uses mostly Hynix in their new Macs where it is soldered directly to the logic board.
