The computer comes with 8GB of DDR4 3200 ram (1 stick). Almost universally, everyone says first thing is upgrade to 16GB of RAM. So I buy 2 sticks of 8MB DDR4 3200 and install. Everything is working BUT now the new RAM is running at 2200 with no option to change speed in the BIOS. I have read that installing any other RAM than that originally supplied will drop the speed with no recourse. My question is, if I can find another 8GB of RAM with the same HP part number and add it to the original stick, will it run at the higher speed? Is this even worth the effort ? Thanks for any help.

Welcome to our HP User Forum!
Your Victus by HP 15L Gaming Desktop TG02-0013w PC (575N4AA) as fitted with an HP Erica8 motherboard (SSID: 89D8), can support up to 2 x 32GB of DDR4 PC4-25600, 3200 MHz, Unbuffered, UDIMM, 288-pin RAM sticks, though all you would ever need for North of 99.9% of all Gaming is 2 x 16GB, and 2 x 8GB should be fine too. Mostly.
Looking at fellow HP System Victus by HP 15L Gaming Desktop TG02-0xxx User benchmarks (scroll down till you see the Ryzen processor versions): https://www.userbenchmark.com/System/HP-Victus-by-HP-15L-Gaming-Desktop-TG02-0xxx/263041, here is a listing -incomplete as it is, of some of the best performing RAM combos running at 3200 MHz:
2 x 8GB:
Micron 8ATF1G64AZ-3G2R1 2x8GB
Hynix HMA81GU6DJR8N-XN 2x8GB
Samsung M378A1K43EB2-CWE 2x8GB
2 x 16GB:
Hynix HMA82GU6DJR8N-XN 2x16GB
2 x 32GB:
Crucial CT32G4DFD832A.M16FF 2x32GB
Whatever you do, you should always install matching RAM: same brand, same model, same capacity. Please be forewarned that HP desktops are rather particular when it comes to RAM, and especially attaining max RAM speed.
Hope this was helpful.
