Hello all!

Decided to upgrade my CPU from a Ryzen 5 2600 to a Ryzen 7 3700X. Updated the BIOS to the most recent one and ensured compatibility between all my parts. After swapping CPUs, the 3700 would not boot, it would not even get into displaying anything. When I swap back to the 2600, everything works perfectly fine.

Of note, I have a MSI B450M Bazooka V2 motherboard with the debug LED indicators, and with the 3700X installed, both the CPU and DRAM LED indicators light up. All the RGB lights and fans run, but the computer basically does not boot at all with the 3700X installed. Any ideas?

My RAM is 32gb of Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3200 Mhz.
