New Build ASUS ROG Strix X670E-E Q-Led 00 15 46 loop with No Post

Greetings,

This is my first post on this forum. I've ran into a constant issue with my new build. To start off this is my second build as the first one I did worked perfectly, but that was 6 years ago. I've cycled through parts trying to get my system to post. Started with MSI Mag x670E Tomahawk WIFI mobo sent that one back for another one, still no post same errors. Got ASUS Tuf Gaming x670E plus WIFI that gave me DRAM issues. I then sent back the RAM I had for RAM approved on the Tuf Gaming mobo list. I sent back the 7950X3D for another one. I took it to some experts who said they tested my components and everything worked individually. The only thing they couldn't test was CPU and MOBO. So I sent the mobo back and upgraded to the ASUS ROG Strix X670E-E. During all the troubleshooting and such I have did CMOS clear, many Bios Flashes, and booting mobo with minimum components. I figured with the new mobo it would help pin point issues with Q-Led codes. The new RAM I got for the Tuf Gaming wasn't on the list for the Strix 670E, however, the RGB version was on the list. I figured that shouldn't be an issues RGB vs not. I put everything together and as the title says I got this loop of error codes. 

CPU: 7950X3D
GPU: MSI 4090 SUPRIM WATER COOLED
RAM: F5-6000J3238G32GX2-TZ5N
CPU COOLER: ARCTIC LIQUID FREEZER 3 420
MOBO: ASUS ROG Strix X670E-E
SSD: M.2 CRUCIAL T705 4TB/M.2 CRUCIAL T500 2TB
PSU: CORSAIR HX1500i

On the current MOBO I've flashed the latest Bios and tried a version prior to that as well. Tried use single stick of RAM in A2 and B2 along with rotating the sticks individually. I've reseated the RAM a lot, I also pushd extremely hard to verify it's seated. I feel if I push any harder I'd snap the mobo or break the RAM. I've loosened the AIO CPU cooler until it was hanging freely as I heard that can cause issues with LGA sockets. I don't believe my case standoffs are shorting MOBO as the others I sent back were not damaged around the stand offs in any way shape or form. No matter what I try I get the same Q-Led Code loop of 00 15 46 along witht he DRAM Led light. The mobo Bios it came with is 805 and I've read for my CPU I need 1303 and beyond as the reason I flashed before booting. Like I said I can't get it to post. 

Would welcome any suggests or ideas you all may have,

Thank You.

Bios version 2007 sucks. Bricked my board as well. Had to flsahback v1904 and everything is fine!!!

These are actually indications of incorrect settings in the Bios. Can also happen through a Bios update.
The only thing that helps here is resetting the Bios settings to factory defaults.

Press the "Bios FlashBack button" one briefly and once long.

So what you are saying is by doing this action it'll take the newly updated bios that I flashed and make it factory default settings. You are not asking me to reset the Bios to the version that came with the motherboard.

Through Press the "Bios FlashBack button" one briefly and once long.
Bios are set to factory settings as if you had bought it, but with current updatet Bios.
The salespeople and technicians do the same thing.

The ASUS FlashBack button has 2 functions:

- Press once = delete the BIOS setting

- Press one briefly and once long = delete the BIOS setting and setting to factory defaults according to the current status of the bios

Another forum also had exactly the same problems with the update to Bios 2007. And this helped that person. And is now running again. The new BIOS seems to change a lot.

So I did this with only the PSU on. I guess I did it wrong, I'm assuming it went to the mobo version it came with. I tried to power it up and instantly shut off. I'm reflashing the bios with v1904 to give that a shot. I don't know if I did the process wrong.

Of course PSU must be on. PC off. And now just press the FlashBack button at the back. It says so in the instructions.

So like I mentioned, that's what I did and it would immediately power down after I turn it on. I had to remove CMOS battery just so it'd take a bios flash. I put v2007 back on it and it's still giving errors. I'll try it again.

I only had the PSU on. I went and pressed the flash bios button once briefly then I held it in until I saw a green flashing light then I released. It eventually went solid. I reset psu and tried to power on the pc. It instantly shut off.  

Flash Bios Button? FlashBack button also Clear Button called.

Button is different for every board. Look in the Manual everything is inside too.
