Best RAM for Ryzen 7 2700X on Asus Prime X470-Pro MBO

I am trying to figure out which RAM to get for Ryzen 7 2700X.

Also the Motherboard I decided to go along with is:

Asus Prime X470-Pro ATX AM4 since I like the features for the money I have.

As for RAM I was thinking about going with:

KINGSTON HyperX Predators (HX432C16PB3A/8, since these are available to me) but as far as I can look these seam as a better fit for 1st gen Ryzen rather than 2nd (at least those are the tests I found online).

On paper, these 3200 MHz Predators seam fine, but I am trying to find best fit for the processor and motherboard combination I have so far. I'm not trying to build any high end PC, but I was kinda hoping to end up with some mid-tier gaming PC that I can upgrade a few years in the future.

I also decided to go along with GTX 1070Ti graphics card, but I'm not sure how relevant it is (last time I built a PC was about 6 years ago, so I've been out of the loop for a while).

I also looked into:

PC-25600, 32 GB, G.SKILL Ripjaws V, F4-3200C16D-32GVK, DDR4 3200MHz, kit 2x16GB
PC-24000, 16 GB, G.SKILL Trident Z RGB, F4-3000C16D-16GTZR, DDR4 3000MHz, kit 2x8GB

(Crosshair is kinda out of my budget for the time being, and we still don't have any in the stores where I'm from anyway)

But like I've said, I'm not sure what the best option would be for the setup I have so far. I checked these links I found on the forums:

https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/SocketAM4/PRIME_X470-PRO/PRIME-X470-PRO-memory-QVL-Ryzen-2nd--Generation-processors.pdf?_ga=2.47585070.88185700.1547127813-400570085.1547127813

https://media.kingston.com/pdfs/hx-product-memory-ddr4-amd-ryzen-and-hx-compatibility-us.pdf

...and it seams Kingston would be compatible, but I would like to avoid bottlenecks, or actually find out if there would be any.

Any help or guidelines would be much appreciated.

Not sure if it's helpful for you but ive been reading and watching alot about ram types you'll want to use a Bdye types and there are websites that will list them which have them
(if you plan to overclock). Alot of the good ram types usually come from Samsung which are them bought by Gskill and others.

That is true, Samsung B-die kits do OC better BUT they also cost a LOT more.
A C14 Samsung B-Die kit was $100 more than the C16 Hynix AFC kit I bought which is why I went with the C16 kit.
The price/performance difference just wasn't worth it to me.

Wow, thanks to everyone for the help.

My question was more oriented to the posibility of upgrading my existing ram "F4-3200c16d-16gtzrx" with another one in order to have 4 x 8gb dimm working ay 3200Mhz, but looks like that is not possible... anyway i'm happy with my 16Gb.

Great work at the forum, thanks

PS: a friend of mine havve the same MB same AMD Ryzen 7 2700x with the "F4-3200c16d-16gtzr"and works exactly like mine
