First build, need some help with the ram!

I have just bought some corsair vengeance lpx c15 2x8gb 3000mhz sticks off amazon. And realised they are the v. 5 39 hiynix version and not the Samsung B dies.

I am planning on running them with a AMD 2400g and msi tomahawk (maybe the max for future proofing) for now. Until I can afford a better cpu and discrete gpu. I'm not bothered about overclocking. If I can get the ram to go to 2933 then I will be quite happy. I eventually just want an everyday Computer for work and gaming at high 60fps 1080p.

My question is, does the fact its the hiynix version and not the Samsung dies really matter? Should I return them and try get some Samsung ones??

Any help is appreciated, my first build and very confused

The B450 Tomahawk MAX does support Corsair Ram with Hynix chips as well.

So normally that board should be able to achieve an 2933MHz OC wiht that Ram kit.
