I just installed this new ram kit of Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 16GB 3200mhz CMW16GX4M2C3200C16. I replaced an old kit of 16GB Gskill Ripjaws V 2400mhz Ram, which worked with no issues at the XMP Profile of 2400mhz. However, with this new kit, I had 2 profiles to choose, so I naturally chose the 3200mhz profile. All was well, but I first noticed that the CPU fan curve changed, going to higher RPMs, but that was resolved. All else seemed fine, until I played for about 15 minutes on AC Odyssey, getting the BSOD. Is this due to the motherboard not being able to run at 3200mhz? I have since reverted back to the other profile at 2933mhz. If this resolves the issue, would there be any way to get back to 3200mhz and have it stable?

If the BIOS update still doesn't work, make sure your SOC voltage is around the 1.10-1.15v range. From what I've read, lots of Ryzen chips need at least 1.10v on the SOC voltage to maintain high 3200mhz speeds.

My motherboard automatically set my SOC voltage to 1.15v, so maybe yours will to.

And that's something that is likely fixed with a BIOS update so that the board makes that adjustment automatically when a high speed module is detected. Earlier board firmwares likely do not. But it's definitely worth checking in the even the BIOS update doesn't simply fix the issue.
