Either the slot is dirty, or the CPU isn't quite making contact with the pins that control that slot. (Or there is a bit of dirt/oil on that pad.) It's also possible that the board wasn't quite soldered as well as it should have been, but the above makes more sense. Steps to fix this would be to clean the slot, reset the CPU and clean the pads before you put it back in. If it still doesn't work, it's probably a bad board.

I tried resetting the CPU and still getting errors but I noticed one thing 4800MHz XMP doesn't give error on A1 but 5000 and greater gives but this only applies to A1
A2/B1/B2 no probs with 5200MHz too

The stick that doesn't work, you said,

When you put the bad stick in A1, double check the settings. There is a chance it's not setting the correct XMP settings and that's why it doesn't work above 4800.

All sticks are working but not only in A1 same stick is installed in A2 and set xmp 5200 same xmp as A1 and no errors on A2 slot
