RAM Upgrade options for Inspiron 3501

Hey I have a 1 year+ old Dell Inspiron 3501 laptop and I want to upgrade my RAM. I would have gone to the seller from whom I have bought it but I'm far away from that shop and can't go there in months so I wanna buy online.

I know it supports 8+8GB dual channel. I know the laptop has nvidia graphic card so ram is3200Mhz. I checked out https://www.amazon.in/HMA81GS6DJR8N-by_Hynix-DDR4-3200MHz-Laptop/dp/B08NFK3T33 cuz it had same model for RAM but it's 10$ more than https://www.amazon.in/Crucial-DDR4-Desktop-Memory-CT8G4DFRA32A/dp/B08C4VHQV2/ref=sr_1_9?crid=3NFFNV6...which I am considering to buy. 

I have read articles that brank mixing won't affect performance/it will work perfectly but I am still doubtful regarding mixing brand. Is there someone who has done ram mixing with inspiron 3501 and crucial 8gb ram? Also it states 3200Mhz CL22 but in brackets it's 2933/2666 Mhz so I am like if this is fake or something I am not sure.

I have read terms like oem, and tons of tech terms and I am more worried about whether will this work or no as im a tech boomer i just don't wanna waste money. Here are my laptop specs, if someone can assure that crucial 8gb ram will work please let me know.

Hello,

You can have a maximum of 64GB DDR4 3200 mhz .Be carefull with what brand you choose as dell systems tend to be very picky about the ram they accept also you should use 2 sticks of the same brand if you want the ram to be dual channel mixing brands can cause unwanted issues.
