TR4 Mobo & CPU Issue?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, I've got a new build I've been working on, specs are:


AMD Threadripper 2920x

Gigabyte Aorus Pro X399 Mobo

MSI RTX 2080 Ventus 8G

(2x8) 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM (don't have enough for quad channel on a quad channel mobo but that shouldn't be the issue)

500gb Crucial M.2 NVMe

256gb m.2 nvme

3TB Seagate HDD


When I power on, I get a post code of 16 and then it goes through some other codes and back to 16 on a loop. The CPU LED is red immediately, and the fans all spin up but nothing really happens. I get nothing on the monitor, but the keyboard does light up. Any ideas?

What does Post Code 16 mean? Chances are the CPU needs to be re-seated. its a common problem with threadripper.

Hey turns out I'm an idiot that forgot how quad channel works. Changed the RAM slots and we're good. :/
