Question 3200Mhz running slower

Hi.
I recently purchased a KF432C16BBAK2/16 ram kit. In theory, its 3200MHz at 1.35V CL16 2x8GB.
My motherboard (Asus ROG Strix B450-F) set it to 2400MHz CL18 and 1.2V by default, which is normal of course. I set it to 2800Mhz with 1.35V to see if its stable or not, didn't want to do 3200 immediately.
When I started testing it with Need For Speed Heat, at the beginning I got the sweet performance boost I was expecting, I had around 100fps. (Before upgrading to this ram kit I had 75.) After around 30 secs it dropped to 5fps.
I did a BIOS update and enabled D.O.C.P Standard mode in BIOS, which automatically set the voltage, speed and latency to the correct amount.
I had around 110 fps in game, but after exploring the map and driving a bit (around 2-3 minutes) It dropped to 40, and it never gone up again.
CPU-Z says 2x64 bit, after a bit of research I found out it means that the rams are running in dual channel mode. In CPU-Z everything seems good.
I don't know what the problem is, should I just keep running my ram at 2400Mhz and live with it?
Is there any way I could make 3200Mhz stable? Since I have a Ryzen CPU ram speed would mean a lot.

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix B450-F (4801 BIOS)
RAM: KF432C16BBAK2/16


Thank you for your time and help

Which exact Ryzen do you have ?. Asking because 1st gen wasn't very good with faster RAM but limit was 2666 to 2933MHz.
With this program you can see details of all settings at once:

With this one details of RAM itself, JEDEC and XMP

And with this one suggestions for overclocking memory

Sorry, I forgot to include.
I have a Ryzen 5 3600.Thanks for the help, I'm not exactly sure what I should do with these links though. Rams are running with XMP stats with the D.O.C.P mode

When you push the ram speed up how hot are things getting?
