I want to upgrade from 16GB to 32GB for work related stuff.

PC Specs:
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Stock
ASRock B550M Pro4 - BIOS v2.3
ADATA XPG Hunter 3000MHz CL16
Segotep GP600G 500w
Asus ROG Strix RTX 3070

I bought a 32GB RAM kit two days ago: Patriot Viper Steel 32GB 2x16GB 3600MHz. This are the cheapest kit available and it's one that most retailers sell here.
I've been having stability problems. It won't run well at 3600MHz or 3200MHz with and without XMP.
System (Windows and Linux) and game crashes, freezing, no BIOS posting.
This brand doesn't show in motherboards' QVL so that's maybe the reason. I've read that Patriot Viper's RAMs require more tweaking.
3000MHz seems more stable but it would need more testing and I don't have time for that so I just packed them up to return them this monday.

I switch back to my old pair of ADATA XPG Hunter, that I bought them separately not a as kit, and they run well at 3000MHz with XMP without any tweaking or strange behavior.

I've been looking for other options where I live:
  • Adata XPG Gammix D20 16GB 3200MHz
  • Adata XPG D45G RGB 16GB 3600MHz
  • [Kit] Adata XPG D50 2x16GB 3200MHz White, 3600MHz Grey
  • Adata XPG D60G RGB 16GB 3200MHz
  • Corsair LPX 16GB 3000MHz
  • [Kit] Corsair Vengeance TUF 2x16GB 3200MHz
  • [Kit] Corsair Vengeance Pro 2x16GB 3200MHz
  • Crucial Ballistix Red 3200MHz CL16
  • Crucial Ballistix Performance Black RGB 3200MHz CL16
  • Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB 3200MHz
  • G.Skill RipJaws 16GB 3200MHz
  • Kingston Fury Beast 16GB 3200MHz [Normal and RGB]
  • [Kit] Kingston Fury Beast 2x16GB 3200MHz
  • [Kit] Kingston Fury Renegade 2x16GB 3600MHz
I would buy the D50 kit but the seller, for the white model description, specified that this model isn't compatible with dual channel for AMD systems.
I found that some had that problem on Reddit.
I want to buy something that I can enable XMP and run it without problems and without resorting to tweaking frequencies and timings.

Thanks for your time.

EDIT: Added more options.
G.Skill seems to be known to work well with AMD systems, so I might go with that.

Patriot Viper Steel, is fine ram I think more of a issue lies somewhere else. Just go in disable XMP DOCP and manually overclock the ram to the advised settings and make sure to up the voltage to 1.35 or 1.45 whatever that kit requires.

I put the RAM on my PC and in BIOS set 3600MHz at 1.35v, 18-22-22-22-42.
I booted into a fresh Windows 10 install and I'm running TestMen5 extreme@anta777.
I'll try to leave it overnight.

EDIT: It crashed in less than 5 mins.

I gave up with the Patriot RAM.
Windows crashed at 3600. Warzone crashed at 3200 CL16-20-20-40, CL18-22-22-42 and 3000 CL18-22-22-42.
The old ones work perfectly with XMP

G.Skill 16GB and 32GB kits are at least 3 times more expensive so I didn't considered them.

I would buy the D50 kit but the seller, for the white model description, specified that this model isn't compatible with dual channel for AMD systems.

Are any of these sticks on the QVL ? If of them is on the list, I would go with this model ?
