this is my setup:

ASUS ROG Strix B550-F GAMING + Ryzen 7 3700X
RTX 3060TI
2x8 gb Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3600MHz 16GB
i run the 2x8 bg in dual channel.

my question is, can i add one
HyperX Fury DDR4 2133MHz
in singel channel without dropping all 3 sticks to 2133 Mhz?

could use another 8 gb ram?

thx for the help, sorry the text got a little wierd.

Npt likely unless that 2133MHz RAM can overclock like crazy and that's even less likely.
If they would work together at all, that is.

Judicious
Ryzen is already picky enough with ram, adding in a third stick of ram from another manufacture and trying to run in a hybrid dual/single mode is probably not a good idea. Along with that the Corsair ram will more then likely have to be slowed down to 2133Mhz to match the Hyper X ram as the Hyper X will not be able to OC to the 3600Mhz to match the Corsair.

Whatever positive you might get from adding in more ram will be completely destroyed by the slower ram speed, Ryzen loves and thrives off fast ram.

Nope. If you want more RAM, sell your current and buy a 2x16GB kit.
