did you try taking 1 set out since they not the same sticks.
Even if they exactly same sticks, fact they not sold as a set can be enough of a factor to not let them play nice all the time.
Sticks in sets only tested to work with sticks in that set. Add non tested sticks together and you can end up with errors.

i am back on a fresh install of windows, i downloaded a game started playing, then all of a sudden a BSOD but it was so short i couldnt see the error code then black screen then the PC restarted and theres no Minidump
Open System Information application
in left hand column, click the + next to Software Environment
wait for right area to populate, it shouldn't take long on a clean install
expand the details column so you can read it.
Don't click on Time header as it doesn't sort by date, it sorts by alphanumeric so depending on your date format, it can be confusing
2 types of reports show, application errors and Windows Error Reporting
Blue screen reports won't show as Application errors, only Windows error reporting

just take a screenshot of entire report if its only short.
Its not always clear what BSOD you got from here but it could offer clues
just an example of what you might see

At least its says Blue screen in the description

i cant take a screenshot of the full thing but if i try hovering over it it stretches all the way to my second monitor, and now its been black screening when i play a game and the black screen shows alot of pixelated stuff then it restarts on its own

Does it sound like 1 long beep, 2 short to you?
1 long beep and 2 short beep:Graphic card error
One long beep followed by two short beeps indicates that there has been some kind of error with the video card. Replacing the video card is usually the most you'll have to do to fix this one.
try reseating the GPU and see if that helps.

Yes it does, and i have tried reseating the GPU and it is still a black screen with those beeps, i am sure its not the gpu because i put it in a PC with a 600w bronze psu and it booted fine

I would try another GPU in the slot and see if it has same problem.

Its either the GPU or the Motherboard, it would appear.

One choice is get PC looked at by repair store and ask them to test both for you.

Could try other PCIe slot, its not x16 but it could tell you if its card or slot.

there are no guaranteed tests for MB, so it might be something else.
Problem is testing anything on it is difficult since it can't show you anything on screen without a GPU.

Its why I suggested repair store, reduces the amount of guessing. You could be wrong and its something else, chasing a problem like that can be expensive.

CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 this set has been tested with that board by Asus
Corsair have also tested it with MB & CPU
CMW16GX4M2C3200C16 wasnt tested by Asus
Corsair tested the ram with MB & CPU

In other words, it should work.

Did you do a clean install after swapping all the parts? judging from drivers, it looks like you did.

i should have been careful with ram statement
CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 should work fine
CMW16GX4M2C3200C16 might be fiddly as Asus didn't test it but Corsair have
that and using 2 sets in a system at once can be cause bsod. Just enough of a difference in timing to throw errors.

So try with just the B memory in and see if its any better

Reporting software crashed just as I finished this the first time

You are on BIOS 1007, current is 1402 - https://rog.asus.com/au/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-z590-e-gaming-wifi-model/helpdesk_bios/
that can help
update intel management engine interface, its here under chipset - https://rog.asus.com/au/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-z590-e-gaming-wifi-model/helpdesk_download/

try running this and see if it offers anything new, would beat manually checking & installing all the intel drivers - https://www.intel.com.au/content/www/au/en/support/intel-driver-support-assistant.html

I will close this since you asked again.
