Which Ram do i need Ryzen build?

I now ryzen is picky in ram, but i am a noob in that area, so you are my only hope right now!
What i now that i need is a 2 x 8gb kit, with 3200 speed, but there are so many, and idk which one is ryzen compatible. My budget for the ram is aroung 150 Euro
i looked at the official list of amd, (even though it was not updated since the firt cpu-gen, i think) and i found this ram , but then when i look at the description it says: “proccesor brand: intel” , or is that irelevant. the model number in amazon says: CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 , and amd’s pdf says CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 v5.39
The motherboard im buying is: Asrock x470 Taichi (because i heard that is the most Linux friendly mobo.)

You should be fine with any kit around 3000MHz - 3200MHz. Worse case is it runs at 2933MHz. There have been lots of bios (AGESA) updates so support is a lot better than the early days.

Ok. Personally I would go with these Corsair ones, but that's only because they are low profile compared to these G.Skill ones. (Please keep in mind that this is UK Amazon ;))

Please mention or quote me if you want a response. :)

generic 2 stick kit of 3000/3200 cl16/15 is what you are looking for. (just get whats cheapest and looks good

 

only Ryzen 1000 is picky with Ram, Ryzen 2000 is much less so to the point it is not a worry unless you are getting super high speed memmory 3200+++mhz

@Uptivuptiz it seems we booth refered to the same corsair product ? , it seemd as the 'best' value, my only worry was that in the product details, the Proccesor brand sad INTEL. but if what @GoldenLag said, than i should be good right?

Also, does the Asrock X470 Taichi support XMP ???

all B series and X series support XMP or D.O.C.P which it may be called on AMD. 

 

i usually recommend 3000/3200mhz CL16 kit as they are the cheapest around. 

 

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Cf98TW/gskill-memory-f43200c16d16gvkb

currently best value 16GB kit in the US.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/6zJkcf/team-vulcan-8gb-2-x-4gb-ddr4-3000-memory-tlred48g3000hc16cdc01

best value 8 GB kit in the US. 

 

i dont know your region sadly

i found out that ryzen likes more samsung b-dies, whatever that is, and than found this wonderful tool

i then looked out the G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series @GoldenLag recommended, but when i went to its official product page, or THIS samsung b-die (which is a bit priceier), in the qvl list it does not mention any ryzen motherboad, you sure it will work? (sorry if bothering but its my first time building a pc)

EDIT: im in germany, if you want to suggest any other link, so https://www.amazon.de/?language=en_GB

here are some memmory kits.

 

yes, Ryzen likes the Samsung B dies, but Ram compatibility is so much less of a worry than at launch. roughly this time last year i stopped worrying  about compatibility as it really wasnt much of a concern for consumers. Ryzen 2000 lowered the pickyness even more. its nothing to worry about

@GoldenLag thanks a lot for yout help, now its much clearer for me.

i have one last question, not about ram: i wanted to buy the asrock x470 taichi, is the AMD Athlon 200GE compatible with that motherboard. i know this combo makes no sense, but the 200ge is only meant as a place-holder until i have the money to buy a 2700(x), but i dont know if thats supported without a bios upgrade, since the 200ge is released after the x470 mobos.

the 200GE is compatible with all excisiting motherboards.

 

though i would highly suggest avoiding buying it even as a placeholder.
