RAM, SSD and support lists

are the SSD and memory support lists found on the MB ,manufacturer page to be taken literally?

i am looking to make some upgrades and i have a Gigabyte Ab350M-Ds2 board. 

i was looking at the following drive and memory kit and they appear to tick the boxes i.e. board support SATAIII and DDR4 2400,

but the specific models don't appear on the support list https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-AB350M-DS2-rev-1x#support-doc

 

would the drive and Ram still work? or should i only stick to the models on the support lists.

tbh memory support has improved a lot since 1st gen Ryzen I won't be worried about compatibility problems. At worst the XMP profile on high frequency kits don't work.

 

SATA SSDs will all work, no compatibility issues there no matter what brand you use.

what about this memory

https://www.scan.co.uk/products/16gb-(2x8gb)-corsair-ddr4-vengeance-lpx-black-pc4-24000-(3000)-non-ecc-unbuffered-cas-15-17-17-35-xm

 

its on the support list from the MB site, and the MB supports 3000mhz but to my knowledge there is a known issue with Ryzen cpus and RAM above 2666. 

i have a ryzen 5 1600 CPU. i only ask as the 3000mhz Dimms are slightly cheaper than the 2400mhz version. 

 

i assume that because the code for this particular RAM module is listed on the MB support list i should be ok?

Curious if anyone has a clue about these lists. Looking at the ASrock b450 MB, and Corsairs Vengeance LPX 8x2 memory isn't listed on the manufacturers list of supported RAM. And I know I've seen some youtubers use it in builds with a Ryzen 2600. Any Ideas?
