I did check out your laptop Jose and I found the following.

According to the MSI and support forums, and checking on the data sheet:

The max ram supported is 16 gb 1600 Mhz. This is the spec that you have nowadays.

Eventhough I highly recommend the following:

-Upgrade to an SSD. There are several options such as a SATA 2.5 inch SSD with read/write speeds up to 600 Mb/s

-As well, you can upgrade your M.2 SSD type 2280, to a 1 tb storage.

Even so, your Laptop does not support PCIe NVme storage upgrades.

If you want to improve your GPU/CPU performance, I do higly reccomen for you to change your thermal pads and to remove the stock thermal paste and place a liquid metal thermal paste (Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut)

Hope it helps!
