When I enable the profile 1 of xmp I experience screen flickering on my display which may be due to the high voltage/wrong timing of the ram base on my research (https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?86320-Enable-XMP-cause-flickering-display-Windows-10).
i'm connecting via hdmi to the on board graphics card.
1) What should I change on the BIOS in order to enable xmp without the flickering issue?
2) I had to enable xmp to see the ram at 3600 MHz, otherwise it would be lower. This issue happened when I updated the BIOS to the latest version, it was doing fine with the BIOS from factory settings. Is there another way to tweak the BIOS so that the ram goes back to 3600 Mhz, without downgrading BIOS to factory settings?
I'm new to PC building and BIOS, so any help is very much appreciated!

Thanks for your quick replies!
Based on the first recommendation to stick with Corsair or Gskill, I decided to look at compatible memory for my mobo (https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-z590-e-gaming-wifi-model/helpdesk_qvl_memory) and turns out that the Crucial memory I had was not even listed.
I will return it and change it for a Corsair memory that is listed as compatible: CMW32GX4M2D3600C18. I hope the issue is automatically solved after I swap the memory, otherwise I will try everything you all suggested!
@BigJohnny: I will purchase a discrete GPU AIC card, waiting for prices to be reasonable again!
