Hello, I've only worked with PC's where their ram was automatically set to their rated speed, and I'm trying to set up a PC with DDR4 Ram who's rated speed is 3200mhz. In the BIOS, it shows it as 2133mhz... how do I change this?
Sorry, I'm not too good with more modern PC's cause I've only worked with older ones.
Here are the specs you'll most likely need:
Motherboard: Asrock B450M Pro4
AMD Ryzen 7 2700
Gskill (ripjaws I believe) 32gb 16x2gb 3200mhz ram

This ram is unlikely to work at 3200Mhz, because it is a dual rank kit (8GB per side of each module) and will likely require 2933 or 3000Mhz to work properly as a limitation of the Ryzen 2000 CPU. If you can find the XMP setting in bios, see if it has a setting for 2933 or 3000Mhz. If not, you can still easily set the kits advertised primary timings in the manual settings menus. In the OC Tweaker menu, find and set 3000Mhz, the advertised timings and make sure you set 1.35v and it will likely work fine for your needs with the sub timings on automatic.

First , have a backup or image made before you begin, sometimes memory errors can corrupt the drive.

Enter the bios and enable XMP and select the 3200Mhz option if there is more then one. Then Test extensively.
Depending on which chips your memory is made from, you may only be able to hit 2933 , simply overtype the 3200 in the bios. save and retest!
