  1. I bought a new Asus ROG Strix x570-e motherboard, I got the same result with a no post condition. I have a strong suspicion I got a bad CPU. I’ve RMAd the CPU, going to buy another AMD Ryzen 9 3900x.
  2. I’ve tested the new ram and the computer still won’t post. Since this is the 3rd new ram kit I’ve tried and it being on the QVL as well, I feel the ram may not be the issue.
  3. I agree, I think the motherboard may not like the ram, I just went ahead and purchased a slower ram kit that is confirmed on the QVL for this motherboard. So I bought a different brand and slower speed with this: Patriot Memory Viper 4 Series 3000MHz (PC4 24000) 8GB Dual Channel DDR4 Kit PV48G300C6K That’s a really good point you make about the ram voltage. As soon as this ram comes in I’ll give it a try. Yes, I’ve let the computer just do it’s thing, I actually let it sit there running for over an hour while I just stared at it thinking.
  4. I’ll try booting from the backup BIOS. When pressing the CMOS button, the user manual states to turn off the PSU and remove the power cord as well as pressing and holding the power button to discharge any power left, then to click the CMOS. I made sure not to allow power to the board while clearing, also, I did a bit of redundancy by removing the CMOS battery just in case the rear I/O CMOS was inoperable. I went out and bought more RAM, but I can go out again and try something else that’s on the QVL.
  5. Ok, I verified there is no film on the CMOS battery impeding functionality. Switching to single BIOS did nothing, as the Main BIOS loads first by way of the default being the Main BIOS switch.
  6. Yes, I’ve tried using a single dim. I’ll take a look at the CMOS battery for a film of some sort. My BIOS switches are set to Main BIOS and dual BIOS. I’ll try Main BIOS and single BIOS right now.
  7. On Gigabyte motherboards with Q flash +, the CPU does not need to be installed in order to flash the BIOS. Yes, I had the power cord disconnected and held the power button to discharge any remaining power prior to installing the CPU and RAM. Yes, I checked the Gigabyte Aorus Master QVL for compatibility with the memory kit. As stated above, I did try the step you mentioned with 1 RAM stick in each slot.
  8. Hello everyone! I have a new pc build and I'd like to get it to work. 1. System configuration: CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900x Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus Master x570 (does not come with onboard video) PSU: Corsair RM850x (850watts) --Additional PSU on-hand for testing: Silverstone 1500watt RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 2x16GB 3200MHz (CMW32GX4M2C3200C16) --Additional RAM on-hand for testing: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 2x8GB 3200MHz (CMW16GX4M2C3200C14) SSD: Gigabyte Aorus NVMe Gen4 M.2 1TB PCI-Express 4.0 Toshiba 3D NAND (GP-ASM2NE6100TTTD) CPU cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H100i RBG Platinum SE, dual 240mm fans Case: Corsair Crystal Series 680x RGB GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC OS: Windows 10 Pro 64bit 2. Troubleshooting steps I already did: To preface, this build contains all new hardware. I assembled the computer at my test bench using anti-static wrist wraps and used quite a bit of care in assembly. I first started by mounting the motherboard to the case with the cases provided threaded posts. I installed the PSU and connected all modular cables needed for the build (2x6pin Sata, 2x8pin CPU, 1x24pin Main, 1x8pin PCIE). I installed the GPU, secured it to the case (because it's heavy) and plugged in all PSU connectors to their corresponding plugs. I installed the SSD, secured it to the motherboard. **BIOS time: I used a 128GB flash drive, and used this online tool to format it to FAT32: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm I went to the motherboard manufacturer website, found my motherboard and downloaded the latest bios "F7b" here: https://www.aorus.com/X570-AORUS-MASTER-rev-10 I extracted the downloaded bios zip file onto the FAT32 formatted USB and renamed the F7b file to "GIGABYTE.bin" as per instructions here: https://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_x570-aorus-master_1002_e.pdf or see attached file on this post named "Annotation 2019-10-10 103423". I inserted the USB into the specified white USB port that's labelled "BIOS" on the rear I/O panel. I plugged in the PSU power cord, flipped the PSU switch to ON, then clicked the Q Flash + button on the rear I/O panel and the bios flash procedure started. Once complete, the system shut down as expected. I removed the USB, plugged in USB peripherals, installed 1 8GB RAM stick in DDR slot A2 as instructed in the motherboard user manual, carefully installed CPU with arrows aligned between CPU and motherboard. I installed CPU cooler which contained thermal paste on the back of the heatsink. I created a Windows 10 bootable media USB and inserted it into the lower speed USB 2.0 port (using a 3.1 port initially may not work, according to what I've read). I crossed my fingers (crucial step) and pressed the power button. The computer powered up, fans spun, RBG puked, GPU lights turned on and fans spun, and monitor received a wake up prompt, and then displayed "no input". The motherboard dummy light DRAM led lit up and every 20ish seconds blipped off and the the CPU led would light up, then immediately back to DRAM led for another 20ish seconds. The motherboard has a 2 digit display for codes, this cycled between D7, 14, 15, 63. (D7 = No Console Input Devices are found / 14 = Reserved / 15 = Pre-memory North-Bridge initialization is started / 63 = CPU DXE initialization is started) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This is where the computer is currently stuck, it has yet to go beyond the DRAM led no post condition. After this, I tried: Reseated the CPU, disconnected and reconnected all PSU cables, reseated the RAM, reseated the GPU, reseated USB header ports, reseated SSD, used different RAM and tried different DDR slots, moved the GPU to different PCIE slots, swapped out PSU for a 1500watt unit, removed PSU power cord and held power button and pressed the CMOS reset button on the rear I/O panel. I've tried combinations of every step just mentioned to no avail. I tried all 5 different BIOS revisions from the motherboard manufacturer website and this no post condition still persists. I've scoured through forums, watched many YouTube videos, and asked a tech at BestBuy's Geek Squad. What I've been reading is this DRAM led problem is said to be BIOS related for the most part, and is affecting many people, the fixes have varied wildly from user to user, even with seemingly identical no post conditions. Please help, I really hope this is a thorough enough post to get some friendly help. Picture of computer attached as well.
  9. Any updates? Were you able to find a resolution to this issue? I’m currently in the exact same boat.
