Hello,

I am looking forward to add a new RAM to my PC, I want to add 2x8GB RAM
I have a good deal for this one ( KINGSTON DIMM DDR4 8GB 3200MHz Fury Renegade Black)
But I encounter a problem I wanted to check do my motherboard Gigabyte B450M DS3H support it and I found this as a result: "Support for DDR4 3200(O.C.)/2933/2667/2400/2133 MHz memory modules"
So my question is will RAM I buy have a max speed of 3200MHz upon install or would I need to overclock it and is MHz all I need to look for while searching for a suitable ram or should I check something more?

P.S. I'm removing old RAM and adding 2X8GB so I will only have new RAM on my MB so it doesn't need to be suitable with the one I have now. :)

Hello!

As it seems, your motherboard supports DDR4-3200.
You’ll have to enable XMP from the BIOS menu to get to that speed, otherwise it will run at default speed of 2133 or 2400 MT/s.

Please, also check if the kit that you want to buy is on the QVL (qualified vendor list) of your motherboard! Just to be sure.
