I get your point, thanks for sharing me this, but by QUARANTED, you mean GUARANTEED as in "for sure" ?
As long as it's working fine without any compatibility issues , crashing programs or BSOD, I'm happy with that.
Oh it will work,there is no doubt about that,but it might not work at advertised speed,which is in your case 3200mhz.Just set up XMP profile and you will be all good.

Yes it will work,but 3200mhz isnt quaranted.
The problem isnt your motherboard,or the ram,its the CPU.
Ryzen 5 1600 has the max 100% quaranteed ram speed at 2667mhz (and below).Everything above that is highly POSSIBLE,but not QUARANTEED.After you put the new ram in,go into BIOS and turn on XMP profile,which should allow your ram to operate at 3200mhz,by choosing the "3200mhz" after you turn XMP on.Dont be suprised if you see speeds below 3200mhz,since every ddr4 ram operates at stock speed 2133mhz or 2400mhz or sometimes 2666mhz.Thats why when you go on the motherboard's site it says 1866/ 2133/ 2400/ 2667(OC)/ 2933(OC)/ 3200(OC)+ MHz .When we are talking about ram,OC stands for turning on XMP profile in the motherboard.So as you can see,if you dont turn on XMP profile after you put new ram in,it is gonna work at 2400mhz.I am 99% your ram will work at 3200mhz,but its not QUARANTED.
