Hi guys, I'd like to know if my ram is compatible with my motherboard and cpu:
Ram( HyperX Fury 8GB 3200MHz HX432C16FB3/8)

Motherboard(Gigabyte X570 Gaming X)

CPU( Ryzen 5 3600X)
 
NO.
Ram must be matched.

Ram is sold in kits for a reason.
A motherboard must manage all the ram using the same specs of voltage, cas and speed.
The internal workings are designed for the capacity of the kit.
Ram from the same vendor and part number can be made up of differing manufacturing components over time.
Some motherboards, can be very sensitive to this.

But and with two identical sticks?
 
Two "identical" sticks are not identical.
Even with the same part number, manufacturing date and lot number.

While it may seem to work you take a chance.
Either that it will not work at all, or worse, that it works inconsistently.

If you have a two stick kit and install them in dual channel ram slots, they will run in dual channel mode.
A single stick will always run in single channel mode.

I suggest you cancel the order and buy a kit.
