Question Can I trust userbenchmark RAM compatibility list for my x470 Asrock Taichi?

I have looked at the QVL (https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/X470 Taichi/index.asp#Memory) for my x470 Asrock Taichi motherboard but from what I can tell, there is no dual channel DDR4 3200 MHz (2 x 8 GB) in the QVL. I have come across an unofficial ram compatibility list from Userbenchmark (https://www.userbenchmark.com/System/Asrock-X470-Taichi/87079) that lists several dual channel DDR4 3200 kits that have worked for other users. I want to buy one of the ram kits on the Userbenchmark because they are dual channel so that I can use it with my Ryzen 3600 CPU. Do you think it would be safe to buy one of the RAM kits on the Userbenchmark list?

I will also mention that I'm choosing to go with the Asrock x470 Taichi motherboard because I don't want to have to deal with fan noise/issues of an x570 motherboard. I have already used two Asus Tuf x570 boards and on both I can hear the fan and it is really annoying. It wasn't super loud but the fan was loud enough and running at a frequency that I just couldn't deal with it anymore. Even with the other fans running in my build, I still noticed the x570 Asus Tuf Gaming chipset fan. I considered a Gigabyte x570 board but the Aorus Elite doesn't have great user reviews and the bad VRMs of the MSI x570 boards make me want to stay away from them.

I'm currently using Team T-Force DARK Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory. Very good timings and they look great on the board.
