I currently have 2 sticks of G.Skill Trident Z Neo 2x8 (F4-3800C16-8GTZN 8GB ) for a total of 16GB. I was planning on turning on XMP/DOCP but I'm scared because I actually don't know what to do.
Instead, I'm planning on "manually" changing my speed to the sweet spot of 3200Mhz because Ryzen 7 3700x's System Memory is up to 3200Mhz. What "settings"/"timings" should I do for my build because I really have no idea what to do and I really want to utilize my RAM more. What should I change on the BIOS settings and such?

3600 is the "sweet spot" for ryzen for the most part. this does not mean it will not run at other speeds. i have ryzen systems with 3200 ram and 3600 ram and both run fine.

go into bios and turn on xmp and let it reboot. most likely it will boot right up and not be a problem.

if it won't boot, then you can worry about manually setting it to slower speed/timings

you bought ram designed to run at 3800, so let it do its job :)
