I've read many articles at this point on this and haven't found any working solutions, I've tried BIOS settings but my BIOS doesn't have any of the settings that people have listed, I've tried changing what slots the ram is in, as well as ms config settings, it seems as if nothing will work, if you have any ideas please let me know.

CPU: AMD FX 8300
MOBO: gigabyte ga-970a-ds3p fx
GPU: EVGA GTX 1060 6GB
RAM: 3 Sticks of DDR3 8GB Ram sticks

You're better off sticking with the pair you bought together... if any.
An older motherboard like that one does not have a Flex Mode, so installing 3 sticks will just make the cpu run in single channel mode.
For browsing, movies, word - the light stuff - single channel is fine. Anything else, dual channel > single channel.
