Hello, I have an ASUS rog strix b350-f motherboard and the G.skill Trident Z RGB ram (model F4-3200C16D-16GTZR) 16GB 2 dimms 3200MHz
I have installed my Ram sticks in slots A2 and B2 just as the guide said (second and fourth slots from the left)
but im getting a ton of Memory_Management BSODs
ive updated all drivers, updated windows, ran memtest multiple times only to be greeted with a heap of nothing found
so im concerned now that my ram sticks might not be compatible, could someone help me with this?
I can get into windows fine, play SOME games okay and the ram sticks show correctly on system specs
but i just dont know whats wrong. also there is this sticker on the ram packaging that states "supports Intel Core" and im worried since Im running ryzen
Here is my general PC build

I just checked the Asus b450-f memory QVL list for ryzen 2000 series processors
and immediately found my ram sticks in the list... do I seriously need an upgrade?
and if I do, should it be to the B450-F or something like the X470-F (want an asus mobo cant do without that awesome BIOS)

G. Skill has a different line for AMD, Trident Z RGB (For AMD).

I suggest updating BIOS to one of the latest versions.

Ryzen 5 2600 supports 2933MHz clock speed with two single rank DIMMs. I suggest you try running at that speed.
I rolled my speed back to 2666 since that was the last speed that ASUS had listed in the mobo specs, and that seems to have fixed the bluescreens, but my question still stands, Is it wise to upgrade to a B450-f mobo in the future?
also does that mean that the ram is not compatible with CPU too?
