I have a Gigabyte Z490 AORUS Master ATX Motherboard and have just looked at the booklet and it says it supports up to 3200 mhz ram. I bought the Corsair VENGEANCE RGB PRO 64GB (2x32GB) DDR4 3600 (PC4-28800) C18 Desktop memory - Black, 2 x 32 GB.

Will my motherboard be able to support the ram, or will I need to get 3200 mhz? Thanks in advance
Your motherboard supports up to 5000MHz according to its QVL, but I don't see your memory model (CMW64GX4M2D3600C18) listed.

I would check with Corsair support before opening the memory to see if they can give you any assurance that it will run. It will probably run at a slower speed as it is listed as 3000MHz for the 2x32GB set on their SITE and does say that it is Intel 400 compatible, but not sure what settings you would need. The timings they give at 3000MHz are 16-20-20-38 @ 1.35V and I expect that will be what you will use.
