it means out of the box it can work up to 3200 with any kind of ram.

you should be able to get them to work at 3600 if you will spend an hour or 2 tweaking.

Like he said. Likely won’t be able to use XMP. Just punch manual timings and it should be fine. I wouldn’t expect it to take an hour or two even.
