My friend helped me build a new PC for me, but once all was assembled and I tried turning it on, the fans spun and everything, but no display was coming through. The EZ debug LED shown a CPU problem - not detected/fail

However, looking through other posts, apparently this LED would light up if it is also a ram problem?

My ram is at 3600mhz, but I only found out after the fact that my mobo only supports up to 3466mhz.

We've tried reinstalling the CPU twice and made sure all power cables are firmly put in.
Is the ram the definitive problem? Or is it actually a CPU issue?

CPU: ryzen 5 2600x
GPU: sapphire pulse rx590
RAM: g.skill 2x8gb 3600mhz
Mobo: MSI b450M pro m2 v2
PSU: corsair TX650M
