Default Can I use “Ryzen optimized” memory with intel?

I bought by accident CMT16GX4M2Z3200C16 instead of CMT16GX4M2C3200C16
This is dominator platinum rgb 16gb ddr4 3200mhz.

I’m going to use it on a ROG z390-F with an i7 9700k at 5ghz or 5.2ghz.
As far as I know, it will work, the specs say “intel 300 compatible” (let me know if I’m wrong). But what about the OC?
When I enable the XMP, will it load values optimized for Ryzen and not intel? Are these values just the timing and volt, and I can change it manually to solve the problem? or it’s more than that and it’s better to return the product? I did not open it yet, but it’s just too much work, if there is no difference I will keep them.

Thank you.

Edit: I just got this reply from customer support, which btw is amazing, they reply within a day if not faster.
“Z series SKUs are optimized for Ryzen, but should be perfectly fine on Intel platforms.” means that it will work, but will the performance by affected?

Just got an answer on another forum.
There won’t be any issues using XMP Profile, and worst case scenario I have to set the timing manually.

So issue solved!
