Upgrading Ram with active overclock

So I am planning to upgrade my RAM, from 16gb to 32gb. Forza Horizon 5 will be requiring all of those 16gb and I want my PC to have some room to spare in the RAM department.

I currently have 8gb(2x)GSkill Trident Z 3000mhz and adding the exact same model and frequency.

My question is, I do have an overclock in my CPU. Will this affect it, or make it unstable? Or is this just plug-and-play, given that I'm using the exact same RAM modules?

Thank you.

I'm not sure, but I think it should be plug and play. The one thing I read is that if you are at a 1T command rate, you will most likely have to change it to 2T for the RAM settings when running more than 2 sticks. RAM is running at stock values, correct?

Yes, it's stock. Haven't overclocked it. Only the CPU.
