AMD 2700x Instability (StriX B-350-F)

Hi all. I helped my brother build a new gaming rig right after Ryzen 2 dropped. He's had a problem with bluescreens and game crashes since he built it, and him being not super tech savvy (and a bit lazy) he never fixed it.So we're working on it now.

He's got a Asus StriX B350-F mobo Bios: 3803 x64

2700x @stock
Ripjaws X (I think) @ XMP (3000, 15-15-16-32, 1.35v)
Nvidia 1070ti
WD 500gb Blue nvme
Very old Corsiar AX850

We've memtested for a few hours. No errors. May do prime overnight, I'm a bit cautious as we've had some weirdness going on. (Peripherals disconnected, power switch wouldn't work. Resetting the mobo power plug helped, I'm thinking a 5v lead was loose or something.) I did to 30 mins of OCCT.

The bios is the one it shipped with. Ryzen just dropped when he bought it, so it's pretty old.
We just updated chipset drivers.
I noticed multithreading was turned off in the bios. I turned it back on. I'm not sure if that would have any effect.

Any suggestions on where to start? My cpu experience ends around Sandy, and I've forgotten much of what I knew. I'm sure shilka and others will run in here telling us to buy a brand new $200 power supply. Maybe, but only if we could be absolutely certain that's it. It has been through a lightening strike which took out the old mobo through the network cable (yeah yeah, I'm sure I'll get 800x "replace the power supply!!!!11!" now) but it otherwise seems to be fine.

First thing I would do is try to update the bios to the latest 4801 bios.

Try to find which BSOD error is specifically happening. Sometimes this can be as simple as a corrupted driver. You can also open the command prompt and run "sfc /scannow" and see if it gives any information and sometimes this can fix some small errors in the system files. After running that command follow up with "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth" then "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth" and finally "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth".

If you're running stock clocks it's probably memory subtimings. 3000C15 is likely Hynix kit so I would try 2933Mhz divider with fully even timings such as 16-18-18-38.

edit: see

G.SKILL F4-3000C15Q-16GRR 16GB (4GB*4) SS N/A Heat-Sink Package 15-15-15-35 1.35V SPD2133

G.SKILL F4-3000C15D-32GVR 32GB (16GB*2) DS N/A Heat-Sink Package 15-15-15-35 1.35V DOCP2666
G.SKILL F4-3000C15Q-32GRK 8G*4 DS N/A Heat-Sink Package 15-15-15-35 1.35V SPD2133

This suggests you can't just use the DOCP "XMP" profile.
