ASUS Prime Z390-A PCIe Problems

Level 7
Hi this is my first post so please forgive me if there are any problems with it.
3-PCie slots top 2 are x16 and bottom is x2/x4. When I mount EVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0 in top 2 slots I get no post and 1 long 3 short beeps but works in bottom at x2/x4. If I mount PowerColor RX 570 in top slot it works at x8, doesn't post in second slot and beeps, and works in bottom. Socket pins look OK and latest BIOS/firmware/drivers in motherboard and cards. I haven't anything in M.2 slots or other PCIe slots and RAM works in all slots. I've tried CSM and disabling secure boot. Any suggestions? RMA is not an option. Thanks.
