Question Motherboard issue?

I recently upgraded my PC from an RTX 2060 to a 5700XT with Corsair Vengance Pro 3600 RAM. After switching GPUs and RAM, I noticed my RAM was running very very slow, so I enabled DOHC in the BIOS, which booted then promptly crashed. After a little thought, I decided to update the BIOS, and I made the mistake of doing it over network. It failed, I had to go through BIOS recovery mode which took a few days. Once I got it working, it was still crashing! I decided to switch my GPU and PSU today to a RTX 2070 and a Corsair RM850 since I believed the crashing was a PSU issue (cheap PSU) and it still crashes when I enable DOHC! Is this a motherboard issue? I have it on warranty so I can replace it if it needs to be.

Edit: not so much bluescreen as more sudden turning off. The entire PC will turn itself off, including RGB, peripherals, everything.

If the ram is stable at 2133 in bios then you can go into windows and set XMP there. You may still have problems going over 3400, but it is worth a try.

The Corsair Vengeance Pro 3600 (CMW16GX4M2D3600C18W) is not on the QVL list for your motherboard. As for the G.Skill only 4 ram modules are on the QVL list: (F4-3200C16D-16GTZR (Y27,28)), (F4-3200C16D-16GTZR (I85-88)), (F4-3866C18D-32GTZR (X167-170)) and (F4-3200C14D-16GTZRX (X199,200)). As I don't know which G.Skill sticks you have, if they work it is because they have passed Asus's QVL for your motherboard
