Try and replace the CMOS battery with a fresh cell. Do you get a mild tingling sensation when touching the case and your feet are making contact with a bare non-carpeted/non-wooden, tiled floor?

Have you tried bios update?

When this started to happen?

Is your jumper on the right place?

Is your memory modules are compatible with your motherboard? Asus mobos are very sensitive for memory compatiblity.

After all it looks like something is wrong with your current system and regarding to the 2bios got the same version it means the latest can be a fix update. So yes you can try.

Fyi:
Makes sure the bios is specified for your motherboard. Dont get me wrong I dont say you dont know but some of the mobos has wifi and regular versions.

Let us know how everything goes after updating your BIOS. Please make sure the BIOS is for your Asus ROG Strix B550-F (Wi-Fi) II

If updating the BIOS doesn't remedy your situation, my recommendation is to start up your pc as a "test bench" with only the most basic requirements.
  1. Set up your PC outside your case. Your motherboard box makes a good, non-conductive surface.
  2. CPU and CPU cooler
  3. Just one stick of ram (populate slot farthest away from CPU)
  4. GPU
  5. No boot drive (we are currently making sure you POST and that your BIOS settings don't reset when you power off and back on)
  6. Turn on your PC by using a screw to bridge the power switch header (see page 1-19 of your manual).
If everything is good, then slowly add more components until you end up "building" your PC outside your case. Remember to safely power down your system before adding anything.

Once you know everything is good build your PC in your case again and perform a final test.

EDIT
It might seem unnecessary to take everything out of your case just to test (and to an extent it is), but it just makes everything easier. You can also rule out the possibility of anything being out of place such as a screw under your mobo. If you don't want to disassemble your PC you can complete these steps without taking your motherboard out of the case. If you do this my recommendation would be to still disconnect the front panel connectors and still manually bridge the pins for the power button. I've seen an issue with front panel connectors. In my experience, this is VERY rare.

I tested the benchmark from CPUZ maybe my ram is invalid?
