Yes, your motherboard supports up to 3200Mhz, so it will be able to support your 3000Mhz RAM. However, you will need to set an XMP profile to make the RAM run at 3000Mhz as it as listed as an "OC" speed for the motherboard.

Setting an XMP profile is very simple and involves going into the BIOS, setting the profile, and rebooting your PC.

As @kanewolf said, I'd recommend grabbing more than 4GB of RAM. 8GB should be the absolute minimum these days.

Hope this helped!

You will be disappointed in the performance of a single DIMM with Ryzen. A matched set of two slower 4GB DIMMs is what is best. Attempting to "upgrade it" in the future is a gamble. You will probably not be able to buy the same RAM and what you do buy may not play with your existing RAM.

+1 to kanewolf.

Better to go with 2 sticks of RAM rather than 1 stick of RAM. It will allow your PC to perform better, I assure you (especially if you are using a Ryzen CPU).
