Ranger - Upgrading from 8 to 16GB RAM

Hello,

I'm thinking to upgrade memory capability of my rig.
I'll get out my 8GB (2x4GB) kit and install a fresh new kit of 16GB (2x8GB).
First kit that got my attention is this fresh one, but is not QVL certified (list not updated):

Second kit is QVL certified for my Ranger board and has a slightly better price:

Both have XMP profile. Only thing is CPU capablity to cope with these memory specs.

Appreciate your comments.

I agree, no plug and play. If timing and frequency is the same, only difference is LED. I bet there should be no problem.
Sincerely,
