Ram upgrade?

Honestly, I would buy more DDR3. 

The rest of your system is good enough that you don't need to upgrade your platform for a while. 
You can't put DDR4 in that system, so that's a no.
But if you can find more DDR3 to slap in there, your CPU/mobo/RAM should last a good few years still.
Maybe you can even buy a quarter of a GPU too! (prices be great...)


Main Gaming Rig: i7-7700K @ 5.0 GHz, GTX 1080 Ti, 32GB DDR4 2400, Modded Corsair 280x Case, Full Soft Watercooling
Second Testbench Rig: i7-4770K @ 4.6 GHz, RX 580 (air cooled), 16GB DDR3 1866, Thermaltake Core P3 White TG, CPU Soft Watercooling

Third Server Rig: R7 1700X @ 4.0 GHz, GTX 1080 Ti, 32GB DDR4 3000, Fractal Core 500, Full Soft Watercooling

Fourth LAN Rig: R5 3600X @ AGESA pls, RTX 2070, 32 GB DDR4 3200, Dan Case A4-SFV V4, 120mm AIO for the CPU

Fifth Router Rig: R3 2200G @ stock, 4GB DDR4 2400, what are cases, stock cooler
 

I don't have a problem...

Just get another 2 4gb kit. Your cpu doesn't support ddr4 plus even if I did I wouldn't recommend going for it because of how expensive it is rn

You can only use 1 type of memory on this mobo. In fact most mobo are like this, it's back in some later Socket 775 motherboards when DDR3 and DDR2 are supported on the same mobo but not at the same time. That's the last time the same mobo can support different RAM type.

 

I'd just get another pair of 4GB sticks.

Why not see if you can get second hand DDR3  ram from free geek if there one near by. 

DDR4 won't work and also now your board is getting to the No support point.

No Free geek nearby unfortunately, in Halifax. For the DDR3, should I work at getting the same kind, or whatever (maybe higher clock?) DDR3 I can?

Get the same frequency and latency ram. All the ram should have to run at the same speed so getting higher frequency ram would be a waste. Preferably the exact same kit of ram.

Try and keep it the same DDR3 that you have in your pc with timing and mhz but if you the cant find it close spec ram will do just make sure it does have it lower then you have in  already  :)

and I've noticed some issues with multitasking

So, as everyone suggested, double your ram amount. But, even though you got a decent air cooler, could you please check and report back the temperatures you get in gaming and multitasking in general.
