It can be so frustrating. I pulled out an old PC yesterday to load on Windows 10 and couldn't get it to boot without making some changes. Very frustrating.

Glad you got all 4 sticks recognized. Are you installing windows on a new SDD? If so, it will go pretty quickly. Just to be safe, I always unplug the power to any other drive just to make sure it gets installed onto the drive I want. Also, you go to Microsoft to make the UEFI Windows installer. You will need a good 8 gb minimum thumb drive.

Paul has a good video on installing windows, but he made one error that he admitted in a later video. He should have selected UEFI file for booting.

And here's Paul's video where he admitted his mistake and tells you how to do it properly:

And once everything is up and running properly, you will want to go into your BIOS and enable XMP for your memory. This will allow your memory to run at 3600.

EDIT: The only reason I was able to help was because after 9 years I just built myself and then my wife new computers (both R5 3600). It's amazing how much faster computers have gotten over 9 years.

By the way, you have a great build. Mine is pretty similar, B550 motherboards were not out yet, so I went with Gigabyte's X570 UD, an R5 3600X, RTX 2060 KO, but only 16gb of the G.Skill Ripjaws RAM.
