Components:
Ryzen 2700x
32gb 8x4 vengeance lpx (cl15 at 3000mhz)
1080ti aorus edition
Prime x470 mobo
Corsair RM1000x (was going to add another GPU but can't because of this problem)
Corsair H110i v2
Samsung Evo 250gb ssd
(Have more storage but haven't added it yet)
Also using cable mod cables as well

My system is powering on fine then goes to the Asus screen then to the blue window "preparing repairs" or something like that and then starts to boot cycle. I have replaced and unplugged everything I could think of but nothing has worked. I have used the mobo speaker and it only reads one beep which I have looked up and it said it's either the PSU or ram but both are new and work fine. I bought new ram just to check and it still didn't boot properly. I have also rma'd my mobo twice because of this problem and it came back clean. I can also get into the bios fine but when I save and exit it starts the boot cycle again. I don't know where to go from here. If you have any advice I will take it. If you want a video of the issue to better understand what is happening just message me.

(Also wanted to add that I have updated the bios on the mobo before and it didn't help either)

Thank you for your help

Windows version? Source?

PSU: make, model, wattage?

Are you able to boot into Safe Mode?
Windows 10. It was a fresh install. What do you mean by source. I have it on my ssd that works (used it in my other PC). I think it's booting into safe mode. PSU- Corsair RM1000x it's rated for 1000w.

Update:I can't get into safe mode. I did what Microsoft suggested and I couldn't get into safe mode.

Okay - go for the clean install via the Forum instructions.

Plan it out, take your time, keep notes of what you do and what happens.
Thank you and I will keep as close an eye as I can. I will let you know how it goes.

(also thank you for your help so far I really appreciate it)

Okay I followed the steps in that forum post. However, when I tried to boot my PC up it would only go to bios or the Asus loading screen then start boot cycling again. It didn't even prompt installing Windows. I tried this a couple of times and it didn't even try to prompt the windows install.
I only had a new ssd plugged in as my primary storage.

Not sure what else to suggest as you may indeed be dealing with a hardware failure/fault of some sort.

What makes it difficult is that the Ryzen 2700x does not have iGPU. So slimming down the system to as basic a build as possible still requires a GPU.

If two motherboards have been tried and come back clean then I am tempted to take the motherboard off the "problem" list.

Are you able to borrow another GPU from a family member or friend? Things are narrowing down to being able to swap out individual components one by one and managing to ensure that any given component is known to work.

You tried another USB drive for the install. What about the Samsung 250GB SSD?

Do you have another drive to install and setup as the boot drive?

Also, perhaps someone else will read through this thread and note some error of omission or commission on my part. I have no problem with that.

I have another GPU that I can use. I have tried my ssd that I am currently using and a brand new ssd (Samsung as well) and both are experiencing the same problem. I will swap the GPU to see if that changes anything. Also wanted to add if I hadn't before but there are indicator lights above the power cables in the GPU that are also cycling. I read another forum post and it said that it means the GPU is getting abnormal power. Could that be a cause for this? I also have 2 other hdd I could use if the other ssd doesn't work.

The forum post I was referring to: https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/gtx-1080-blinking-white-light.2859950/
