No, the RAM is designed to run at that speed. You should just need to enable XMP/DOCP and select 3200mhz.
Ok man thanks a lot for your answer,im just a little scared because when i putted the aegis ram on the pc after 2-3 hours of use my psu was fried..idk why did that happen.
I had that 600w psu a lot of years but was it a coincidence that it fried after i did put the ram sticks on?

Yes. XMP should work but sometimes it doesn’t but it’s the best place to start. Make sure the RAM is in the correct slots for when running 2 dimms per motherboard instructions.
i saw now that my cpu handles 2933 mhz is there going to be a problem?

Doesn’t matter. There is a chance 3200mhz won’t be stable but no harm in trying. Worst case you have to settle for 2933mhz. There are many reviews showing 2000 series CPU’s running 3200mhz RAM.
okay thanks a lot for your help,i have a last question
my mobo has 2 black and 2 red slots does this matter on where to put them
