There is actually no such ting as a Z370 ram chip
Z370 is the Intel chipset
https://www.intel.co.uk/content/www/uk/en/products/chipsets/desktop-chipsets/z370.html

There is ram that is suitable for the board with the Z370 and whatever processor is installed

There is similarly ram that is suitable for the Z170 and whatever processor is used
The board manufacturers site will list on the QVL list ram tested with the board
You do not have to use THAT ram , as of course the manufacturer of the board can not test all ram

The ram in question may well be suitable - check with the ram manufacturer
Further information

It will not damage anything both use DDR4 whether or not it will work OK without having to enter ram setup in firmware, depends on speed chip configuration timings etc.
