My motherboard is a Asus Prime A 320m-K. On asus site says that the motherboard supports 3200mhz but is a entry motherboard and I'm afraid
I'm planning to put 2x16gb 3000mhz sticks. Would my motherboard support?
Asus site says this: AMD Ryzen™ 2nd Generation/ Ryzen™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics/ Athlon™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics/ Ryzen™ 1st Generation Processors
2 x DIMM, Max. 32GB, DDR4 3200(O.C.)/3000(O.C.)/2933(O.C.)/2800(O.C.)/2666/2400/2133 MHz Un-buffered Memory.
My processor is a Ryzen 7 2700
The RAM is a aftermarket 16gb DDR4 3000mhz.
Asus supported rams:

The price difference between the 2666 to 3000 is just 3 pounds.
 
"Would my motherboard support? "
I think it most likely will work.
Even if it's not on the QVL....as long as the specs are matched....I think there's a good chance.
I do this pretty often and they almost always work.
They will run at 2666 which is the stock MB speed unless you OC.

I will get the 3000mhz ones because the quality seems to be better. The 2666mhz doesn't have heatsinks.
Is it hard/safe to OC the Motherboard to reach the 3000mhz?
