I have a Ryzen 5 1600 and my ram is ddr4 cmk16gx4m4b3200c16, I only use 2 sticks of these rams(2x4), when I try to use the xmp profile at 2933 or 3200, PC crashes with a BSoD, now I'm forced to run it at the base 2133mhz speed even so my bios has the latest update, is there any solution?

Also If I wanna add more rams (8GB more) can I just add one stick 8gb Ram with the same speed, or do I have to get 2x4?

The Ryzen 1000 series had issues with higher RAM speed that 2666MHz. You will want to update your BIOS to the most recent non-beta version to increase your RAM capability. https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B350M-MORTAR While you could add a single DIMM it will cause everything to run in single channel mode. You would be better off getting a set 2x8GB kit and selling your 2x4GB kit. Your motherboard won't support running 4 DIMMs at 2933MHz, probably only run at 2133MHz.

i have already installed "Version 7A37v1K" and it still gives me the blue screen if i choose any of the xmp profiles
