I already own a Ryzen5 1600 with the board mentioned in the title which was/is working fine. That being said:

~Motherboard manufacturer says Ryzen7 2700 is a supported CPU with bios version f22 or later.

~I am using compatible RAM (and it's been working fine with it over 6 months)

~I updated my chipset drivers first as the motherboard manufacturer instructed me to before upgrading the bios.

~I flashed the bios which is currently version f25. The flash was successful (I rebooted my computer several times and checked the bios version while in bios environment. Also double checked in Windows with CPUZ).

~Switched out my old Ryzen5 1600 with Ryzen7 2700 and everything powers up but no boot and no beep.

~Switched back to my Ryzen5 1600 and everything booted fine. While I had the 2700 out I double checked for bent pins. None.

~Switched back to 2700, making sure it was seated correctly but sill won't boot

~Tried clearing the CMOS but not luck. Still won't boot.

~Made sure heatsink was plugged in correctly and fan was spinning.

~Wattage of both the 1600 and 2700 appear to be 65w so It shouldn't be a 600w PSU problem (corsair CX600).

~Using NVidia Geforce 970 for graphics.
~I even went as far as buying a new and better power strip for everything.


Sooo. Any suggestions?
