As title reads + followin

Asus prime X570 Pro
Ryzen 7 5800x
3200 64gb Corsair Vengeance Pro 16-20-20
3060ti Zotac / RX 6600 pulse
H150i elite
970evo plus 1tb
1200w Plat phantek
P600s Phantek

what I’ve tried:
I’ve tried 2 of the same mobo (prime x570 pro)
All 3 pcie’s with 2 different GPU’s
GPU works in other system
2 different PSU’s
PSU’s work in other systems
Reseated everything
Fans spin, RGB turns on
3 different monitors

Same exact issue: it gets stuck on white VGA led, indicating graphics card issue, yet both GPU’s work on the other systems. There’s no post, keyboard/mice won’t light up.

going to try to seat a 5600x in the prime boards, any other ideas?

also going to try other sets of ram

is my CPU dead?

confirmed dead CPU

even a white LED VGA can mean dead CPU.

Respectable
Do you know what BIOS version your motherboard/s is on? Many of the X570 boards still need a BIOS update to run the 5000 series CPU's, (even though it looks like it points to a GPU issue, not having the correct BIOS can give you all sorts of problems.)

It was actually running totally fine, I played far cry 6 on it, then restarted the pc and bam, no more boot.
Figured out the problem though- CPU is dead, replacing for a r9 5900x ty though!
