Question RAM Cutting out, but working in separate motherboard

Hello, I noticed my computer was crashing whenever I slightly bumped my desk or closed a drawer, and I noticed the LEDS on my corsair ram sticks would turn off when this happened, I started my diagnosis with the ram by cleaning the contact surfaces and air blowing the ram slots, this did not help anything as the issue persisted, I decided to plug the ram sticks into a separate pc that I built and the pc booted up just fine with no issues from the ram, but when transferred over to the other pc the issue persisted, is it safe to assume that the motherboard is bad and should be replaced? thanks.

What are the make/model of the RAM and original motherboard?
The ram is corsair vengeance rgb, 32gb 8x4. with the Asus ROG maximus ix motherboard, I also plugged what I know are good ram sticks into the maximus to find I had the same issues but they work fine in a separate pc.
