PowerSpec B734 memory upgrade suggestions


Currently running a PowerSpec B734 machine with a AMD Ryzen 7 5700G 3.8GHz on an ASRock A520M-HDV motherboard. I have 2x 16GB DDR4 2666 RAM in the machine right now (32GB total). I'm looking to upgrade to 2x 32GB (64GB total) if I can.

I don't do any gaming or anything that needs any overclocking or anything. I use it as a Proxmox server running a Windows 11 VM (for regular Internet stuff, video streaming now and then, Photoshop, and architectural 3D modeling software as a personal hobby), a full Ubuntu VM, a couple Ubuntu containers, and a GNS3 VM for network virtualization. The latter is what I'd like to upgrade the RAM for the most. Fast is great, but reliability is better. Something that can provide both would be ideal.

If anyone has any suggestions for what 32GB sticks I can replace my current 16GB sticks in this machine with that will give me the best performance while being able to count on them for reliability, please let me know. I only shop for memory once every four or five years, so my RAM expertise is lacking. Also, if there's something that would work great but would need tuning in the BIOS, I might be able to do that, but I don't really mess with BIOS settings much, so I'd need details on what to do.
