Ryzen 5 1600x and RAM

I'm going to buy AMD Ryzen 1600x with an ASRock X370 Killer SLI and Corsair Vengeance LPX 2800MHz. Tell me please, is it normal to work memory paired with this processor ???

Check the QVL memory list on the motherboard's website to determine which RAM should be used.

It seems suitable, just heard that with some memory the processor is not chasing at all. What is it connected with?

Re: Ryzen 5 1600x and RAM

Hello, may I ask why to avoid the F4-2400C15D-16GTZR? I always thought Hynix is a very good choice of memory?? Of course, I am searching for this topic and I have this RAM with the 1600X (lol) but still, I used 16GB just fine for about a year now, and now I installed another 16GB and my system only uses 16 but shows me 32GB (Windows states 32GB (16 usable)). Not really sure why it does that.. Any ideas? Funny thing is, my BIOS does see all 4 DIMMs installed but only shows 16GB total also.

UPDATE:

I just reinstalled the RAM again.

First I took all out and then I installed the first 2 in the row but on Slot 2 and 4. Started the System, showed me 16GB.

Then I installed the 3rd RAM DIMM into slot 3 and started the system again. 24GB. Okay so..

Last one installed in slot 1, booted to BIOS and it shows me 32GB

Booted to Windows 10 => 32GB usable.
