Msi b450a pro with 4x4gb ram
« on: 21-May-19, 01:48:15 »

Hello. I have an msi b450a pro m/b with 2x4gb ram corsair 2933mhz.
Is it merit to put another 2x4 ram?
My cpu is amd ryzen 3 2200g and for gpu i use the graphics from ryzen. At the future  probably i will put an rx570.

We cannot answer because it depends of the pc use....
I suppose you are using Windows 10. Use Task Manager to monitor memory usage: >>HowTo<<.
If the RAM is fully used, it should be usefull to add more stick BUT be cautious because mixing memory kits does not work sometimes. To minimze risk:
- select the same RAM kit as the current one or, better, buy a kit with 4 RAM sticks to replace the current one,
- in the first case, do not mix sticks: plug the older in DIMMA1+B1 and the newer in DIMMA2+B2.
- after to have plugged the 4 RAM sticks, do a clear CMOS to force the system to discover the new configuration and load the bios default values when asked.
Hoping it shall help,
