Hello all,

I recently finished building my new itx build. I tried to start it for the first time and it would freeze on the bios splash screen. I have a Gigabyte Z390 itx motherboard, i9 9900k cpu, and patriot viper 16gb 3200mhz ram.

-I tried reseating the ram, took both sticks out and swapped the slots they were placed into. Same issue.

-Tried one stick at a time to determine if it is a bad stick. PC boots fine when using either stick in channel A.

-Tried one stick at a time again, but instead placing in channel B. Both sticks in this slot cause the freezing at the bios splash screen.

Do I have a defective motherboard? Is it my ram? Did I bend a pin on my i9? I have not tried updating the bios from version F7 to F8h yet.

I appreciate any help on this.
