Which RAM for my b450 ITX setup?

I built a mini ITX setup:

 

- ASRock Fatal1ty B450 Gaming-ITX/ac
- AMD Ryzen 2700x w/ stock cooler
- Zotac GTX 1070 mini
- Fractal Core 500 case

 

And then I had bought this Corsair LPX 32GB DRAM 3000MHz C15 Memory Kit (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B014UYPEXE) which was $320.

 

After, i found this Ballistix Sport LT 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 3000 MT/s (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07HPBV5RT) on for $199, which I absolutely had to buy on impulse.

 

I originally bought the vengeance because I was told "they work with everything", and indeed my system is running fine. But $120 difference on the RAM would be nice to put that money towards something else!

 

I don't see the latency timings for the ballistix, but I also don't really understand them either. They are both 3000Mhz and I would hope/assume the ballistix would also run at that speed.

 

Is there anything I should be considering between these two options? Is it a no brainer to save $120 and return my corsair vengeance, or stick with what I already have and instead just return the ballistix (hasn't been delivered yet...)

 

 

**Edit** looks like the ballistix is:
- Specs: DDR4 PC4-24000 • 16-18-18

 

And the Vengeance is:
- Tested Latency 15-17-17-35

The Ballistix would be fine.

 

Your Corsair LPX info is here : https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Memory/vengeance-lpx-black/p/CMK32GX4M2B3000C15

 

Your Crucial Ballistix is here: https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/bls2k16g4d30besb

The difference in timings won't make any performance difference on AM4 systems, not something really more than error margin, like 0.5% change in performance, stuff like that.
