You need to verify which version of the MSI B450 Tomahawk motherboard you have. There's the Tomahawk and the Tomahawk MAX. Only the MAX version is natively compatible with the 3rd Generation Ryzen processors. The original version does require a BIOS update.

I would follow above advice and also reseat the memory (in slots mentioned above).
I've noticed sometimes you can get a CPU diagnostic light when actually the memory is the culprit. Try also just starting the computer with a single stick of RAM.
In addition make sure the CPU power cable is properly attached as well (clicked in).
