    Did you buy all four sticks as a set? Two sets of 2 x 8GB sticks, usually isn't as stable as one set of 4 x 8GB sticks.
    I brought 2 sets of 2x8gb sticks but they were identical. They don't come in 4 as a set.

    How long you had the ram ? let it run in for a few weeks first that may help ?

    I had that problem with 4 sticks so I upped the speed without using xmp (if it lets you ?)
    You must be lucky, what speed, timing, voltage and what rams you have ?

    Probably find the IMC doesn't like that speed with all four slots populated. Try running with the four sticks but only at 3200 MHz, and see if it is stable there.
    I might give it a try.

    Yep, looks like you must stay away from 4 slots, unless you have a Threadripper, X79, X99, X299 or the like, which supports quad channel.
    Understood, but i don't have problem running at default clock speed with lower timing.

    I guess the AMD systems are different. I'm running all four of my slots with 3600MHz Modules (XMP enabled). I'm on an Intel board though. See my system specs.

    Been running that way for over a year now. My backup system is running 3333MHz modules in all four slots.

    Lots of people run 4 stick on AMD, just requires tuning them

    When I used 4 sticks it was on my X570 motherboard with stock Voltage settings & Auto settings applied apart from speed & ram timings were kept at 15.15.15.

    I moved 2 sticks over to my B450 board now anyway as I use an m.2 as SSD/HDD are just too slow for my Ryzens so use PCi 4.0 m.2 on both systems & the B450 runs at 3,450mb/s Read & Write so if you still can not use 4 sticks just use a fast PCi m.2 instead as you are just slowing yourself down with SSD/HDD.

    Here is a picture of your QVL Ram list for 3,600Mhz ram on your motherboard, are your sticks any of the top ones which are tested for 2 only ???

    Mine is not inside the list, i'm using this CORSAIR CS-CMK16GX4M2D3600C18 Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3600MHz C18 Memory Kit, Black: Amazon.sg: Electronics. I guess my motherboard don't support 4 sticks of this rams in xmp. I 'll just have to
    stick to 3200mhz or default.

    1) Be aware the QVL list isn't always updated and mainly applies to newly released boards. My Corsair sticks aren't listed on Gigabyte's QVL list for my motherboard cause the board came out before those modules were released.

    Point: Just because certain modules aren't listed doesn't mean they won't work, it just means the QVL list hasn't been updated. Truth be told, I've never ever referred to a QVL list when choosing my RAM modules. On the other hand I only use Corsair Dominator modules. Still...

    2) A visit to your owner's manual would clear up any questions about RAM configuration for your board. There's also plenty of board forums to answer those questions. Don't get caught up in "guesswork".

    I need a little advise here, my system sometime crash with 4 x 8gb cosair VENGEANCE LPX 3600mhz c18 ram with xmp.
    But no problem with 2 x 8gb. What can i do about it ?
    Maybe you have a bad slot. Test each slot with 1 stick of memory.

    If all your slots are good, then test each stick the same way.

    You could always try 2 X16GB sticks instead as 1 set is listed on QVL list, people who do not use the QVL list as a reference point normally have load of problems also.

    If you look up the ram on some sites they tell you there is a newer version & most of your numbers match.

    You could also just match the Cas Latency rating on the QVL list to a set of rams you are using as that is another way of doing it.

    I also believe my QVL list is the same as yours yet I am using Patriot Steel Viper 4,000Mhz Cl15 Ram & yet the board only goes up to 3600Mhz !

    I'm sure all 4 slots and sticks are good since i don't have problem running in default speed on all slots.

    The xmp work on 2 sticks 3600mhz and 4 sticks 3600mhz but a bit unstable on 4 sticks.

    I'm strictly Intel so I've never used AMD processors or motherboards and can't speak from personal experience, but I've read a number of threads where AMD boards seem to be finicky about the RAM. If that's the case you might be better off following the QVL list.

    That said, you might look to the AMD Motherboards forums at overclock.net. Since they're an overclocker's site you can learn a lot about your motherboard to include RAM configurations. I don't overclock but I do frequent the site when I need to know something about my motherboard or have a question. The site's a great way to learn your board; even better if there's a thread dedicated to your board.

    My two cents
