Hey i currently have Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 16GB 3600 MHz AMD Ryzen Tuned DDR4 and was thinking of upgrading to 32gb. Do i have to buy the exact same ram and do i need to do anything once installing it? Thanks.

Ideally you buy a 32gb kit. Even buying the same make and model does not guarantee it will work without issues. RAM is sold in matched kits for a reason. It might work but you are doing your own testing. Also if you are thinking of going from 2 sticks to 4 you are more likely to be limited to a lower speed.

Damn that makes me sad, was hoping to just put another 16gb in and it would be fine.
