Hi, I am working on building a new PC and have a question about a specific model of RAM: G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200)

Basically there are 2 models of this RAM but with the same exact specs...
1st the F4-2400C15D-16GTZRX model which is optimized for AMD https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=20-232-634,
2nd the F4-2400C15D-16GTZR which I assume is for Intel https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=20-232-474.

My question is, will there be a disadvantage if I use the ram that was optimized for Intel over the one for AMD in an AMD system? Would it really make a difference? The reason why I ask is because I found the Intel one for slightly cheaper. I will be using this ram with a Ryzen 1700 CPU, and Gigabyte B350 Gaming 3 (rev. 1) motherboard.

Another cheaper alternative I considered to the above ram is the G.Skill Flare X also optimized for AMD. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820232519 I am also considering oc'ing this kit.

Also, without starting a new thread and given my CPU and motherboard models, can anyone please tell me the proper settings I would need in terms of voltage and timings if I were to overclock the Trident Z and Flare X ram kits from 2400mhz to 3000mhz?

Thank you.

MB: Gigabyte B350 Gaming 3 (rev. 1)
CPU: Ryzen 7 1700
Ram: TBD
GPU: ASRock RX 580 Phantom Gaming
PSU: Corsair HX750i Platinum
Case: Phanteks ENTHOO EVOLV X

My System

I built and sold a system about 6 months ago with some FlareX 3200. I used an ASRock x370 with a 1600x. I was able to hit 14-14-14-34 1t, 1.3925v., Did not get it to that with XMP I had to do it manually. The kit is excellent. SOC 1.95 as I remember.
