I was referring to OPs setup - he uses two sticks and he should populate A2+B2 only.

please clean the memory modules fingers.
I suggest testing each memory individually on A2.
If one of the memory flag code 55, this module is the culprit and you need to replace the memory kit
If both pass, please clean the B2 with alcohol and then try to install memory on B2 again.
Update latest bios when install on A2
If it still persists, clear CMOS with battery and then try installing on A2 and B2 again
If it works, please enable XMP and make sure the timing is 36-36-36-76 with 1.25V. If it is Q-code 55, adjust the DRAM voltage higher to 1.26V or higher.
If you really want to see if it is memory, install each memory on A2 and run Memtest86 and repeat it on the other memory module. If one of the memory has errors, RMA the memory.
Hope that helps.

My MB shows QCODE 55 if I put the RAM in A1 or A2 slot, in B1 and B2 no error.
if I reseat the CPU the error is gone then come back after the same time.
MB is not part of the defective z690 hero cap issue - confirmed via the Asus site and by visual check of the cap.
Tried to clean CPU from thermal paste, reseat the CPU, reseat RAM - not working 😞
Also, check for bent pins in the CPU socket but none were seen.
RAM appears in the QVL list ( corsair CMT32GX5M2X5600C36)
Tried with XMP on and off - same result.
the other issue is that when the system did succeed to boot it takes a lot of time to boot - about 2 minutes seems because of the POST check. maybe there is a setting to turn off the post check that takes a lot of time?
any other suggestions before RMA?

In my case, only B1 and B2 worked on the z690-g. After I released the AIO, all slots worked, including A2 B2. I tried several times, even without a cooler, and that was it. Now everything is working fine. It's incredible how just squeezing the cooler a little harder caused problems and how I only had to squeeze it with my hand and not all the way...
