CPU red light is on
CPU fan, case fans spinning (can’t tell if it’s max speed or not, but definitely not “low speed”)

Havent been able to POST at all.
only used HDMI


Tried:
Remounting cooler/cleaning and reapplying paste
Reinstalling cpu( it was right the first time as well)
BIOS update
1 ram stick, 1 slower, definitely working ram stick
Ensuring PSU cables are completely plugged in (they were
Different PSU (500Watt, 100% works)
(Note: did not repeatedly restart with this PSU but CPU red light was still on)
Made sure CPU fan is plugged in CPU fan1 and not AiO pump or anywhere else (it was)
Tried loosening cpu cooler screws
CMOS battery removal
