Hey guys! Just some specs before you get to reading :)
Ryzen 7 3700X
ASUS X570 Crosshair VIII Hero Mobo
16GB DDR4 G.Skill Trident Z RGB 3200Mhz CL16
NVIDIA EVGA GTX 1080 FTW
500GB NVMe Western Digital SN500 Blue (OS)
1TB Samsung 860 EVO (Secondary)
Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 650W Fully Modular PSU

So recently I bought a new ram kit. Wanted to upgrade to 32GB so I went with these: https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-32gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232748?Description=32gb ddr4 3200&cm_re=32gb_ddr4 3200--20-232-748--Product

These currently reflect the same models as my current 16GB kit just more capacity.
I tried to install them today and it gave me a post code 10 error. Can't access BIOS at the very least either. Looked it up and it seemed like it was an issue with "PEI core is started."

I thought it might be because of my current PBO settings with my old 16GB kit so I turned off the PC and cleared CMOs for about 10 seconds and nothing. Even tried the 1 stick on A2 slot method to see if that would boot and nothing.
NOW with my old 16gb kit it is still giving me this error :( so it's making me wonder what the actual issue is now? I tried switching ram sticks. Even did one of each to make sure it could at least boot and still nothing. Any suggestions?
