Question Help with ram compatibility

Hello, I want to upgrade my ram and cpu and I need some help.

My motherboard is asrock B450m Steel Legend

I want to upgrade from R5 2600 to R5 5600x -> checked and a simple bios update will do the trick

I want to upgrade from 16gb 2666mhz ram to 32gb 3600mhz -> my problem

Do I have to follow the memory QVL from asrock or can I just buy a 3600 kit and install it?

Asrock support is not helping at all.
