[SOLVED] Ram Upgrade Question

Hello everyone, new here first post.

I have a question for a possible ram upgrade on my pc. I do a lot with VMs so trust me, I need the upgrade. (though it is also my gaming PC)
MB: Gigabyte Aorus Z270X Gaming K5 v1.0
CPU: i7 7700k @4.5Ghz
GPU: NVIDIA 1070 8gb
SSD Samsung 850 Evo 500GB + HDD 3TB Sata3
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX CMK16GX4M2B3000C15 (2 x 8GB | DIMM DDR4-3000) 15-17-17-35

In the bios I set up the RAM using a XMP profile that left it automatically at 3000Mhz and 15-17-17-35 timings. Didn't tweak anything.

I'd like to get an upgrade getting two more sticks of 3000mhz 8GB RAM for a total of 32GB (4x8GB)

Right now the very same RAM I own isn't available for purchase where I live, so I've been looking at options, one of them being the following:

I'd get two Kingston HyperX Fury Black HX430C15FB3/8 (1 x 8GB | DIMM DDR4-3000) 15-17-17-(??)

I can't find the Tras latency of the kingston memory anywhere.

I would place them like this on the mobo: Corsair - Kinston - Corsair - Kinston, that way the same brands are on the same channels.

So my questions are, would I achieve the 32GB @ 3000mhz with timings 15-17-17-35(maybe?) are those two rams compatible at those speeds? what about the timings? would I need to tweak anything?

Thanks in advance

Pretty sure that it is 15-17-17-32, so 35 would be fine. You may get the two sets to work together as the slower timing of either, but there is never a guarantee unless you buy them as a kit.

Installed them, working fine. Ended up with 15-17-17-36 across all four sticks at 3000Mhz 32GB.
