After not being amazed by the performance on this laptop (coming from a HP Omen, i7 9750H and RTX 2070 Max Q), specially on Warzone, I found out that a youtuber says that the problem lays on the RAM sticks, he made a test and the differences were more than 20 FPS so naturally im looking to upgrade.
In my search I came to a Kingston Hyperx 3200Mhz ram kit at 1.2V, but I also found an Apacer Nox running at 1.35V, so I was thinking if this kit could give me problems as I have never tried a higher voltage Ram or if its worth the extra $$.
Any other recomendation would be useful,

Its not ASUS, its AMD. AMD supports JEDEC 1.2v standard speeds. Intel supports JEDEC 1.2v and XMP 1.35v. The problem is faster speeds can sometimes produce poor performance depending on which Intel CPU you get. It's all very complicated.
Now ASUS chose to put junk 1RX16 RAM into their systems instead of 1RX8 or 2RX8, so you can blame them for that, but you can't blame them for only operating at 1.2v.

Don't do it. Ryzen RAM runs only at 1.2v JEDEC. The 1.35v requires XMP, which requires Intel. If it says 1.35v or XMP, don't buy it. That 3200 1.35v RAM will only run at 2666 on AMD so be careful.
Best you can do is make sure you are running 1.2v, dual rank, dual channel, 3200MHZ, Micron or Samsung (not Hynix), CL22email@example.com or CL20firstname.lastname@example.org, tRFC 560 (or less), bought in a matched pair kit. Unfortunately the retailer won't give you these specs so grab the model number and head to the manufacturers site. Generally 2x16GB RAM kits are more likely to meet the dual rank requirement. If the chip says 1RX16 on it then you don't want it. Opt for 1RX8 or 2RX8.
So it seems that you know your stuff. I have a very similar laptop to OP who started the thread. Only main major difference seems to be that mine has the RTX 3060. It came with 16gb of ram, but it is 2x8gb. So I want to take it all out and just throw in the best ram that I can. Either 32gb or maybe I will just say F-IT and get myself 64gb and get it over with.
So this leads me to my question - You said don't bother with XMP or any of that BS because we have The AMD Based Architecture. I am fine with that. I will stick with 1.2v. But what confused me was when you said "or lower". I know that typically when it comes to GAMING the lower the CAS LATENCY THE BETTER. But that is of course ONLY IF IT IS COMPATIBLE. So I currently have DDR4-3200. I imagine I cannot go any faster than 3200, correct?? I also have CL=22.
Can I get myself some AFTERMARKET DDR4-3200 Dual Channel And Also Dual Ranked that runs at 1.2v BUT HAS A LOWER LATENCY THAN 22?? Is that okay, can I go lower than 22??
I know it has been a while and I am Necroing this post, but I hope you are still there to answer, or maybe someone else will.
ASUS ROG STRIX g15 - G513QM-WS96 with Ryzen 9 5900HX and a RTX 3060 Laptop. Can I put lower latency Ram? Thanks everyone
