Question X470 Taichi Ultimate with R5 2600 won't post: error code 'b0' or '60'

So after a lot of trouble, I got a setup that by all rights should be working. The setup is here:
Motherboard: ASRock X470 Taichi Ultimate
CPU: RYZEN 5 2600
GPU: Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX 5500 XT
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB)
PSU: Antec NeoECO 620W
Storage: Samsung 860 QVO 1TB Solid State Drive
Case: NZXT H510

I 've double and triple checked all cable placements and component seating. I went to power it on and got the red-light post code 'b0' or '60', plus a continuous cycle of the machine powering up, the LEDs starting a slow pulse while the screen stayed dark, a moment of the fans whirring, and then the machine powering off, only to power itself back on again. This continued indefinitely until I turned off the power myself.

This is the exact same problem I had when I tried to make it work with the r5 3600, and I thought the problem was the lack of BIOS update but the only difference now is that there was no error code when it did this for the 3600.

Including photos of the setup and code. Just... what the hell is happening now?

I should update that I've now realized that the board I have is actually updated to handle 3rd-gen CPUs so I placed my 3600 in the socket and it removed the debug code, while still doing the boot loop as described.

Did you reset CMOS ? Ram in right slots and seated properly ? Your picture seems to show RAM in first and last slots.
Sorry, I should have listed the things I've tried in better detail:

-CMOS reset button
-CMOS physical battery removal
-reseating all power cables and data cables
-RAM sticks in A1 B1 and A2 B2
-removing one RAM stick and reseating a single stick in each of the four slots, then switching sticks and trying the same.

It's been suggested to me that it may be that the specific RAM I am using might be either defective or not properly supported by the board:

According to this list:

So I'm getting this, which should be completely compatible:

Aaaaaaand that didn't work either. Pretty sure at this point that the board itself is the problem. I'm sending it back and getting a damn ASUS.
