Booting Error, POST 00, Maximus XII Formula

Hi,

I built this computer about 2 years ago and am just now running into this issue. The problem is pretty inconsistent but I’ve hit a dead end. I was playing game and walked away to go get lunch and came back to my computer having black screen. At first I thought it was just asleep and then after trying to turn it on, it showed an error code 00 and then the code would disappear and it would just say CPU. I tried doing a bios flashback and that did not work, tried clearing CMOS, that also didn’t work. The only thing I’ve done recently to the pc is move my graphics card from slot 2 to 1 (I was an idiot when I first built it). I can’t think of anything else to do.

 

Specs: 

CPU: i9-10900k

GPU: 3080 TI FE

MOBO: Asus Formula Maximus XII

RAM: 4x8 Corsair Dominator 3600mhz CL16

Storage: 2xSamsung 970 M.2 NVME 1TB

Hi @Hoffdogger 

Please try the following

2. Remove the CPU cooler and CPU and inspect the CPU pin pad and CPU for any debris or damage.
