Mixing Trident Z Royal with Trident Z Regular

Stop being cheap and get another Royal kit. You can't go half Royal ya know.?

Edit: On an serious note, you should be fine mixing the two kits ;)

So I built my PC last year for gaming + video editing:

CPU: 9900K

GPU: RTX 2080 Ti

Motherboard: Asus RoG Maximus XI Hero

RAM:  16 GB (G.Skill Trident Z 8GBx2 F4-3200C16D-16GTZR ) https://www.gskill.com/en/product/f4-3200c16d-16gtzr

 

but I only had 16 GB of RAM, and now I am thinking about upgrading to 32 GB, however, instead of using another pair of 8GB Trident Z sticks, I am planning to upgrade with a pair of 8GB Sticks of Trident Z Royal, F4-3200C16D-16GTRS  https://www.gskill.com/en/product/f4-3200c16d-16gtrs

 

Since, both have the same CAS latency 16-18-18-38, rated speed (3200), and voltage, I am assuming that they are basically both the same sticks, except for the shinier heatsink on the Trident Z Royal.

 

So will I have any issues with making these RAMs work together? I am assuming that they will run fine on my Maximus XI Hero, and will work in Dual channel too (A/B/A/B config).

 

So has anyone of you mixed the Trident Z Royal with regular royal, and faced any issues, or do you think that there could be any issue?

I could of course upgrade with the same RAM sticks I used earlier, which would be most logical, but there are a few reasons why getting the Royal is important.

 

Thanks.

Can't you return if they don't work well together?

No, I am buying online from a store that doesn't accept returns unless there are manufacturing defects etc.
