System freezes after upgrading to Ryzen 2600

Good day, I had and old PC system which I decided to upgrade, I swapped half of my old components for a new line of ryzen 2600 CPU. I bought Ryzen 2600, ASRock AB350M PRO4 motherboard which had "Ryzen 2000 series ready" sticker on it and 1 stick of G.Skill 8GB 3200Mhz RAM. My system looks like that: 700W PSU GTX 660 3Gb ASRock AB350M PRO4 Ryzen 2600 with stock Wraith Stealth on top G.SKILL RipJawsV Series Black 8GB 3200MHz CL16 DDR4 F4-3200C16S-8GVKB20First I decided to put all the parts and boot my old windows, it worked perfectly until it froze after 20 minutes, after that it didn't work even for 5 minutes after booting. I started digging what could be the problem, is it motherboard, maybe RAM? I don't have any other DDR4 Ram so all I could is to try other RAM slots. Reinstalled windows, didn't help, system freezes after few minutes of using it. Then I started checking bios and to my surprise this motherboard ran only 3.0 version of BIOS, Ryzen 2600 requires minimum 4.7 bios version. So I thought maybe that's it, maybe all my problems are from ignorance of motherboard manufacturers. I flashed bios to 3.4 bridge, then I flashed it to 4.9. Now in bios settings it clearly shows that version is 4.9, but that didn't achieve anything...system still freezes after few minutes of using. I will appreciate any help.

If you upgrade your motherboard you always need to re install windows
