Swapped r5 3600 for another. System shows "over current detected on usb device, device will shutdown in 15s!!"

So my brother bought a used r5 3600 and it did not work for him, so I wanted to test it on my pc, I swapped minr and his in both of our motherboards, mine worked on his motherboard but his cpu didn't work on mine, but when I returned my cpu to my motherboard it now says "over current detected on usb device, device will shutdown in 15 seconds" and also the EZ DEBUG LED for the CPU turns red, then for the VGA led, then for BOOT. I really need urgent help. 

I tried removing cmos for 5 mins, also took the mobo out the case and tested the parts, still same issue, took out ram and reseated it + reseated cpu. 

 

Also tried flashing bios but that did not work.

The system is out of the case, on the motherboard box.

No USB devices connected at all except keyboard/mouse? Did you try disconnecting either of those and seeing if the error goes away?

I'm familiar with a similar error message from within Windows. I didn't know about a message like this on POST.

 

Beyond CMOS reset and Flashing BIOS you may very well be SOL. Where did this 3600 CPU come from? Does your CPU still work in his motherboard?
