Hi everyone,

I am using an ASUS ROG Z390-F motherboard,

I recently changed my i5 9600k out for an i9 9900k, however my system now does not POST with both of my memory sticks installed.

Both sticks work individually and the machine runs fine with just one stick. CMOS has been cleared. I've tried again with my i5 but have the same issue.

With both installed, the motherboard gets stuck on the yellow LED, indicating a memory issue.

I've seen similar issues reported before and commonly it is socket damage causing it, I've taken a look at mine but nothing seems to be majorly/obviously out of place.

I've taken some pictures in hopes of getting a second opinion? apologies for the quality I'm only working from my phone

Update: I have tried both of my sticks in single channel mode I believe (slots directly next to each other, rather than with the gap) and it boots and detects both sticks this way, but still does not work in dual channel mode.
