I discovered now that ordered Teamgroup DDR4 3600 memory:

3600 CL18 DARK Za TEAM TDZAD432G3600HC18JDC01
it is memory that "tailor made" for AMD Ryzen system.

But I have Intel based system. Is this memory will be good for my Gigabyte Z690M Aorus Elite DDR4 with Intel i5 13600?
Thanks.

I read on Amazon's review about this memory and motherboard:

Ram is not compatible with the gigabyte aorus elite despite it being on the rams QVL list
Reviewed in the United States on March 28, 2022
Size: 32GB (16GBx2) - 3600MHz C18Color: Black

When I first got the ram I had all new parts. From the get go the ram was not stable on its stock speed of 2400Mhz and of course XMP profiles would not apply. I have a Ryzen 5900x with a gigabyte aorus x570 elite wifi rev 1.0. The motherboard is listed on the ram's QVL list so I decided to get some replacment ram from amazon. While I waited for that I put a 16gb 3200Mhz kit I already had in which applied XMP profiles perfectly fine and ran stably. When the replacement TForce ram got in. I excitedly swapped it out to find that it was at least kind of stable on base speed of 2400MHz so I go to apply the XMP profile annnnd it failed. Even worse after awhile it stopped being stable at the base speed.

TLDR If you have the Gigabyte Aorus Elite Wifi (Probably non wifi too) this ram is not compatible to not believe the QVL list.

I ordered Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Elite Wifi, not X570 (for AMD).
Is this review about relevant for me?

Before installation I changed motherboard to Gigabyte Z690 Gaming X. It has no any problem with 3600 CL18 DARK Za TEAM. But I don't no if it has problems with another Gigabyte motherboards.
