So I ordered a brand new Ryzen 7 5800x for my PC, and when I installed it, the light on the PC never came on and there happened to be a really loud PSU fan going off. Is my setup not compatible?

Specs:
MSI B450 TOMAHAWK ATX AM4 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory
Corsair H60 (2018) 57.2 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
MSI GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB GAMING Z Video Card
EVGA G3 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply

What is the original CPU?

Did you update BIOS to the latest to be compatible with 5800X?

After updating the BIOS and putting in the new CPU, did you reset CMOS?
