1. Make sure it's on your motherboard's QVL list

2. 3000-3200Mhz should do you just fine (diminishing returns after that)

3. try and look for AMD compatible ones since they'll easily reach their rated speeds

Hello, got a Ryzen 1600 recently with slow RAM and 8GB capacity.

It is 2x4 GB sticks which I will replace.

 

I am looking to upgrade to 16 GB, and wanted to know if you have any recommendations in regards to brands, speeds and timings.
