I just got DP21 12M. Can I upgrade the RAM to DDR5 and secondly, can I install an M.2 drive with a heatsink such as SN850X NVMe?

It is specification for PRO-DP21-12M on MSI website.
2x DDR4 2666/ 3200MHz SO-DIMMs, up to 64GB (32GB * 2slots)

It is recommend list for PRO-DP21-12M on MSI website.
SN850X is not on recommend list.

Its not not about the support for a particular ssd, but more about the space within the box which can tell if we can put a SSD with heatsink enclosure

not sure if the bracket will interfere with the SSD heatsink. It's safer to go with an M2 SSD w\o heatsink...

I don't think you can XMP on the system. do you have any issues with the current configuration?

Not really. I got this machine today anyway. I am thinking to use this machine for photo editing (Capture One & Luminar) so thought it might be better to have 32gb RAM.

i think most 2666/3200MHz SO-DIMM DDR4 from a well-known brand should work with the system.
and if you're upgrading memory, please don't mix the memory sticks from different kits.
