Ryzen Ram / are there still issues? / cl 16, cl 14

Are there still any issues with CL 16 Ram on Ryzen? I plan to upgrade my 2133mhz Ram to a 3200mhz one. And I want to buy the Gskill Trident Z RGB (2 x 8gb 3200mhz CL16) module. I heard that Ryzen is a bit picky and I can just use 3200mhz on a samsung cl14 module. And with cl16 I can just go up to 2933mhz. Ist that still the case? Or can I just buy the cl16 3200mhz gskill module? Will it go to 3200mhz? 

GPU: Vega 64

CPU: ryzen 7 2700x

It depends on who is making the ram, MB etc. Try to get some DDR4 ram for the MB you have (find something by the same maker and is in the same series of products)

But yes, The best way to see if something works or not is try it and see (also an occasional software upgrade would be useful if you have issues)

The best ram depends on what your computer supports. Make sure the RAM you buy/install is supported by your system.
