does ram manufacture mean anything (hynix,micron,samsung) when building a amd pc and i am not going to oc the ram?

Only when it's Samsung b-die.  It's the best for AMD or Intel and can provide the best speeds and timings.  Kits with CL 16-18-18 are usually Hynix or something else and kits with matching CL like 14-14-14 , 15-15-15 , or 16-16-16 are usually Samsung b-die.  If you find something with matching CL then compare it against the Samsung b-die finder:

Ryzen 2000 CPUs are much easier to run now with less expensive RAM kits like Hynix.  I had no problems with a 3200 16-18-18 Hynix kit, but I ugraded to a 3600 15-15-15 Samsung b-die for competitive benchmarking.

the higher the clock speed and the lower the CL the better is basically how it works both numbers are important.

At the price point your are shopping in you won't find better than 16-18-18 on a 3200 kit.  And the QVL list isn't gospel.  You will find kits not on it that will work fine with your setup.
