I have an ASUS Prime X470-Pro motherboard, and I was wondering if I could use this RAM, it’s the G Skill F4-3200C14D-16GTZSW. Now I looked up the compatibility list for this motherboard and it’s not there, but should I worry? Or will it most likely work just fine?

What cpu are you going to pair this with? With ryzen 2000, the need for specific ram kits has mostly disappeared.

Even if that ram isnt on the qvl of your motherboard, it likely will work without a hitch. 3200 gskil ram seems to work pretty well with ryzen.

Newer motherboards, bios revisions, and ryzen 2000 cpus have greatly increased memory compatability.
I would still prefer to buy ram on your motherboard qvl if possible, but unsupported ram should not have an issue.
I would wait till get your parts and test them using the ram you ordered. If it doesnt work, maybe the ram could be an issue.

If the system boots up with no problem, should I be fine? Or could it potentially be a problem in the future?

If you got it installed and it booted fine I would not worry about it too much.
I would run some stability tests once you set DOCP to 3200 in the BIOS just to be sure.

F4-3200C14D-16GTZ-RX Appears on G.Skill's list for your MB.

The F4-3200C14D-16GTZ-SW that you are asking about differs only in the color option code, so it would work.

Functionally-speaking, they are the same unit.
