So I currently own a PC with a Ryzen 5 2400G CPU and a MSI A320M PRO-VD/s MOBO. I want to upgrade my RAM. The thing is, my CPU's support page says it supports 2933 RAM, but my MOBO can handle higher frequencies. Can I install 3200 RAM on my computer? I'm thinking it will run at 2933 as my CPU is rated that way.

Official support for your chip is 2933 for memory but most will easily handle 3200 (actually 3400-3600 is where most top out). Just make sure the bios for your motherboard is up to date. Early on there were lots of updates relating to memory compatibility with the 320 motherboards.

Hi, thanks for answering! Should I also update my chipset, besides bios?
