Crosshair VI Hero and RAM

Hello, i don't know where else to ask so if this is inappropriate, please remove my post.
I'm using a B450-F Gaming mobo atm and i want to switch to a Crosshair VI Hero and i'm stuck on ram choosing.
That QVL list is old and not updated, all the rams posted there are way to expensive for me atm (the cl14 g.skill ones). I'm looking to get something with 3200MHz cl16 that will work with this board.
I saw there that the Corsair Vengeance LPX do work (vers 4.9, whatever that is).
Will those work for sure? Or if i get the Ripjaws V 3200 cl16, can i manually adjust the timings to get those speeds on this board?
Or can i get a recommendation on what "budget ram" will work with this board at 3200?
Thank for any help.

I have had Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR4 3200 White LED running for some time now. The timing is not very good but this SK Hynix has been rock stable at 3200MHz without any memory training issues after reboot or powering down and unplugging. I you will be good with any ram now.
