My new Ryzen x570 Aorus Master system Ryzen 9-3950X with 4 ea. HyperX 16G 3200MHz DDR4 RAM crashes when setting the RAM frequency at 3200MHz. The system works fine at 2400MHz.


Please let me know:
(1)  what steps I could take to set the RAM speed per the ram specs? or

(2)  what alternative RAM I could safely use with my system.


Here are the specs of some relevant components on my system:

BTW, I have seen reports on line such as this as Tom's Hardware so I am hoping that a solution is available already to this issue.
