Memory overclocking does not work and computer freezes after 15-20 minutes even just idle

Hello, I have been struggling when trying to overclock my memory to the 3000mhz that my memory is rated for. I have tried all the way from 2666mhz to the 3000 that it says in the box. I tried the default XMP settings but after about 15-20 minutes of doing anything, whether it be just internet browsing or gaming the system freezes and I have to reboot. 
My specs are:

CPU: Core i9 9900k - stock settings

Motherboard: ASUS TUF Z390-Pro Gaming

Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 2x16 3200mhz C16, Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 2x8 3000mhz C16 (yes they are in the right slots so they're with the ones they're supposed to be with) I tried both only the 32GB pack, and the 16GB pack by itself and both have the same problem when you overclock them at all.

Graphics Cards: RX 580 8GB, RX 580 4GB

Storage: Samsung 960 Evo 250GB, Western Digital 2tb 7200rpm HDD

LPX ram doesn't like overclocking. It's not going to make much of a difference for what you're doing, nothing you can really do about it. You could try to RMA the ram I guess stating that it didn't hit advertised speeds.

So leave it off and be happy. The difference in speeds are only a few (like 1-5) FPS in games, and not worth the hassle

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

XMP rarely works well. I've had exactly 0% success with it. Honestly unless you are doing hard video editing or like database operations, you aren't going to notice a significant difference. Casual gaming for me: no measurable difference between 2133 and 2666.

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.
