My build came together alright, didn't run into any issues or anomalies except one, I found that if I change bios settings more than once my system won't boot.

I'll change a setting under the bios, could be changing RGB colors, could be fan settings, or changing to a XMP profile on my memory. And it just won't boot, I don't think I have any POST code outs on it, theres no LEDs and it's not mentioned in the manual.But if it locks up like this if I short the CMOS reset headers I can get it to boot again.

When I do this I'm able to set all the settings in one shot and do a Save & Restart. Only once, if I do it a second time it won't boot.

My buddy recommended I try reseating the RAM & battery so probably gonna try that tonight or tomorrow.

MOBO: B450 AORUS PRO WIFI (rev. 1.0)
CPU: Ryzen 3 3200G
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4

Okay, so I was wrong it's not a matter of changing any setting.

It's if I modify the CPU volts or CPU clock speeds. I was being inconsistent, but I was doing very tiny incremental increases. It looks like if I change it at all even as small as I can it refuses to boot. I may have to create a new topic.
