You dont need 64gb for gaming, but if you still want it, I would recommend gskill 6000 c30 kit or 6400 c32 if you are able to find it.

i've got a very similar setup to you, 7950x, hero and a 7900xtx mba, but using a 32gb ddr5 dominator platinum 6000mhz kit, on bios 1709 and its rock solid, for games 32gb is more than enough, if you go higher you need to use slower ram due to the capacity, 64gb or more you ned to look at 5600mhz kits or lower, if you stick to 32gb kist then 6000-6200mhz should be achievable.

it all depands if you have a strong cpu with a good memory controller.

Try use TestMem 5 using the ANTA 777 extreme profile instead of the windows test and see if that still returns errors.
