Sync strippers won’t make any difference to picture noise unless there’s some particular quirk of the hardware you’re connecting to (like e.g XRGB3).

If you’re sure that your hardware is outputting the correct 75 ohm sync through the sync stripper then you can’t damage the RetroTINK 5x. If you’re not (e.g if the cable was made a long time ago or by a non reputable manufacturer) then I’d suggest finding out or simply replacing the cables with luma sync ones as they could damage any consumer grade hardware, not just RetroTINK 5x.
