Can this MB handle 3000Mhz RAM?

Go to solution Solved by Fire Yoshi,

This mobo is on AGESA 1.0.0.6b so it should be fine with handling such frequencies at CL15. Ryzen doesn't have a 3000 MHz strap though, so it's going to default to either 2933 MHz (probably) or 3066 Mhz (if you're lucky) when enabling XMP.

Hello there! :)

So I've got most of my components for my first build in the basket. I found a HUGE sale for the [Kingston HyperX Predator 8GB DDR4 (Kit 2x 4GB) 3000MHz CL15] and I was wondering if this MB can handle it? Will it underclock the RAM if it can't handle the 3000 Mhz? Asrock website says the following for this motherboard ram support:
"AMD Ryzen series CPUs support DDR4 3200+(OC)/2933(OC)/2667/2400/2133 ECC & non-ECC, un-buffered memory"

MB's spec: https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/AB350M Pro4/index.asp#Specification
Ram's spec: https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/HX430C15PB3K2_8.pdf

 

The rest of the build list is:
CPU: Ryzen 3 1200
MB: Asrock AB350M PRO4
Video card: KFA2 GTX 1050 ti EXOC
PSU: Corsair CX450M
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 rpm 

Case: Zalman Z1 NEO

It says: "Supports DDR4 3200+ (OC) (Ryzen CPU) / 2400 (A-series APU)" not "AMD Ryzen series CPUs support DDR4 3200+(OC)/2933(OC)/2667/2400/2133 ECC & non-ECC, un-buffered memory"

So, when you use Ryzen, it will support 3200+
