New Ryzen 2700x, x470 Mobo, gskill ram build not working well

First off, do you see any compatability issues with the parts list?

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/DRV3yX

There are 2 different sets of ram because I originally bought F4-3200C16D-16GVKB. It was not on the QVL list for ASUS and it felt like a ram problem so I bought f4-3200c16D-16gtzr (which is showing as part number f4-3200c16-8gtzr???) As seen here.... https://scontent-atl3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.15752-9/31530983_10215094728978338_8563756581647286272_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=dde3e9898ddf08ad3646505e05937eb4&oe=5B925800

Currently installed is f4-3200c16D-16gtzr. The Trident Z RGB.

Everything is running very slowly, a lot of times programs won’t open and say “not responding”

Even if I open up windows explorer, the quick access will pop up, but everything else Loads very slowly.

If I start menu and try to shut down the PC or restart it it will not recognize any one of those commands and I have to hold the power button down on the PC.

Sometimes when it actually does restart it sits there on the blue screen that says restarting for 10 minutes or more.

Nothing is overclocked and if I change anything from default settings in bios, the problems gets worse.

I don’t know that this is normal, but sitting on the desktop with no programs running, i’ve noticed a CPU frequency bouncing back-and-forth between 2200, 4350, 3900, 4200, 4330.

Is that normal?

When it is running decent, I have played pubG for hours with it and all of my temperatures have been a max of 65°C on the CPU and GPU. So it shouldn't be a temp issues. From talking to other people who have lessor builds than me and running on the same settings, their game seems to be running better than what it is on mine.

No BSOD, The PC hasn’t shut off on its own that I can remember.

The overall problem, is it’s not running anywhere close to its full potential in my Opinion.

I’m trying to narrow down if it’s a software or hardware problem.

Any suggestions? Anything I can try as in stress tests or provide you with more information please let me know.

i have been having similar issues with those ram sticks and the rysen 1700. from my understanding we need to get the ram that ends in TZRX for ryzen compatibility. was hoping they would work better with the 2700 but it doesn't sound like it.

Thank you so much for that info AdrianD66!!!!!!!

Hmmmm... First I have heard of that. I just spoke with someone at gskill and I didn't know they had a QVL list of their own. The ram I have is f4-3200c16D-16gtzr. It is on ASUS QVL list for ASUS Prime x470 PRO but IS NOT on gskills QVL list for that mobo. grrrrrr

He also said that my PC is reading each individual stick of ram and not "the kit." So when I bought "f4-3200c16D-16gtzr" that's the kit. Each individual stick of ram is part number "f4-3200c16-8gtzr" He said that is not an issue.

It looks like my 2 best option are.....
