Hello

Just finished building my workstation.
have checked all components in other builds.
when boot up, I get no post all fans spinning at 100%

EZ debug LED lights on mobo signalling DRAM failure
but I have checked RAM compatibility on the MSI website
and it should be compatible with the board

I dont have any other RAM so I cannot check
what should I do?

Motherboard: MSI B450 GP
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport LT - DDR4 - 8 GB , 2666 MHz / PC4-21300, CL16-18-18, 1.2 V
GPU: GTX 660 2gb
PSU: Max Pro 750w

this occurred since I RMA'ed my brand new Asrock to get the MSI 450m. I can now see the EZ debug lights on DRAM.

I didn't get my Asrock to start either but they said that it was a bios update that was needed and just replaced it with my new MSI board.
 
So your previous MB didn't work either?
I'd be returning your RAM if it is only 1 module. If it is more than one module, then remove the other module and try one at a time in each slot.

If it has not worked on 2 boards - it is more likely a faulty module.
Asssuming you couldn't get either MB to boot normally at all?
