new to actually changing settings

So, i am attempting to actually get the most out of my hardware and was messing with settings to try and get my ram to clock at 3200mhz and from the research i did it does not look like i can do it with my setup. I have 4x8 ram kit from corsair its the CMK32GX4M4B3200C16 and im unable to use the built in xmp or whatever asus calls it. i was wondering if there was a way to get it to run 4x8 at 3200mhz or if there is a motherboard that would support it i know its not on the QVL for my motherboard listed below.
my hardware is
asus rog strix b450-f gaming
Ryzen 7 2700
corsair vengance lpx 32gb
RX 5700 XT
EVGA superNOVA G2 1000W
i have plans to upgrade my motherboard and CPU so if theres a way to get my ram running at the full 3200mhz with upgrades that would also be helpful.

Ryzen 7 2700

running 4 sticks at 3200 is a bit much for zen+ i would think

probably limited by the memory controller on the CPU

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

X570 if you want previous and later Gen.

B550 supports 3000 and up only.

Or wait for Zen 3 and 600 series chipsets.
