screen freezes for 30 seconds then goes to black as if no signal to monitor, if I alt+tab then it goes back to normal but the game may have crashed depending on the game. rocket league is fine and I can carry on as usual but black ops 4 and overwatch just crash.

I have tried running games with nothing running and there is no difference. I have also reinstalled windows and factory reset the pc, so it I think it's a hardware problem.

Processor AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor

Try one stick at a time.

the problem with only using one stick is that the games that cause the crash require 8 GB of ram, so if they even run it's very jumpy. crashes eventually anyway
