My system keeps shutting down after about 5 mins usage. Was working fine for first 2 days then froze and now shuts itself down without warning.

Can any one advise why this may be?

I have updated the bios, disabled all LED lights in the bios and removed all AURA and ICUE software but still same issue.

Supplier is sending replacement RAM but each stick boots individually so doesn't seem to be the issue:

Have you gone into Event Viewer in Windows to see if there is a system log created around the time of the freeze/shutdown?

Does it shutdown with 1 stick of RAM?

Yeah still shuts down with 1 stick of RAM installed.

I've looked in Event Viewer and the critical events are all
Kernel Power 41 Errors

But this just seems to indicate that windows is failing to reboot after a shutdown.

That is one of the most useless Log entries. Try going to AMDs site and downloading the most current chipset drivers. https://www.amd.com/en/support/chipsets/amd-socket-am4/x570 I looked on Asus' website and their chipset drivers are from back in August 2018.
