What is the CPU temp at load? The CPU could possibly be going into the Thermal Throttle mode.
Power Supply could also be the issue. I would start with the Temps first. AMD is know to run hot especially on stock CPU coolers.

Store assistants aren’t great, they’ll probably just point your to DDR4.
Best way to do that is look for your motherboard on the manufacturers website for the supported list and look for product codes of the ram you want.
Just checked the motherboards ram support and the best choice is the
16GB Crucial Ballistix Sport LT PC4-24000 3000MHz Dual Memory Kit (2 x 8GB)
