I am receiving motherboard Q-Code "FC" while booting with an orange DRAM LED. Motherboard manual lists this as "Reserved for future AMI error codes".
I have used flashback to ensure the BIOS is fully up to date and compatible with the CPU:
I have tried 2 types of RAM:
- Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro CMW32GX4M4C3200C16
- Corsair Vengeance LED CMU16GX4M2C3200C16
All three of the motherboard power connectors are connected to a Corsair HX1000i, no graphics card, no storage, no other connectors, just CPU, RAM and power.
I have tried battery pull/CMOS reset.
I have tried multiple RAM/RAM slots.
I have had the motherboard replaced (currently testing with a brand new one right now, same results).
Any advice/guidance on next steps... worried that the CPU might be faulty? or compatibility issue?
