I'll just tell you this:
For my Ryzen 5 2400G paired with a mid range B350 motherboard, I initially bought a pair of G.Skill Ripjaws 4 rated at 3200 MT/s: bad mistake, it's an old model and for the life of me, I couldn't get past 2800 MT/s.
So I sold them and bought a pair of TridentZ: they worked fine for some months then one of the modules miserably failed and I had to send them back.

What I have now is 16Gb kit of Patriot Viper 4 3200 and so far I'm really happy about it: rock solid, no frills, no hacks, they just worked right away.
So that's my recommendation.

It really depends on the motherboard: a B450 chipset will handle high ram speeds way better than a B350 for example. A dirt cheap motherboard could have issues compared to a more expensive one with the same chipset and so on.
However you should check the memory compatibilty list on your motherboard's manufacturer website to be absolutely sure the ram will work fine. The Patriot kit I mentioned was indeed in that list for my own mainboard, which is a Gigabyte AB-350 Gaming.
