When looking at a QVL list keep in mind that it's not a complete list, it just shows what was tested and what was approved. It does not show what was tested and failed so there is no way to know if the ram that you want to buy was tested at all. Motherboard manufacturers tend to not test all available memory from all the memory vendors. If they have tested the same speed and timings from a different vendor then yours will work.
I very rarely look at the QVL. Also when you put the memory in the slots and turn on the computer you may see the ram default to a lower speed as most motherboards will do that and you have to go into the bios and change the memory speed settings to it's rated speed.
