I mean would it work fine? Will there be any problems or anything to be careful about? Or it won't work in the first place?

I am sorry to bother you but do you know any DDR4 rams that will work on those motherboards?

Or any other z690 motherboards DDR5 that support DDR4 rams?
Thx in advance
As said, the slots for DDR4 and DDR5 are physically different.

If you want to use DDR4 RAM, you need to find a DDR4 compatible motherboard, that is compatible with the CPU you wish to use.
Same with DDR5.

Different levels of RAM are slotted differently.
DDR4 physically won't fit in a DDR5 slot.
