More B450-I issues

Level 7
So, past my Ryzen 3000 problem, I now tried to boot a Ryzen 7 2700... to no avail.

Either both memory slot are populated, and I'm getting a solid orange q-led (RAM issue), or a single slot is populated, and I'm getting a solid RED q-led (CPU issue). Once again, no problem with an Athlon 200GE. CMOS reset doesn't change anything.

At this point, I'm gonna try on a Gigabyte mobo. At the end of the line, either Asus or AMD is garbage.

As usual, any hints appreciated.

ps: my memory *is* in the QVL for the B450-i

edit: just for the sake of doing something, I'm gonna run some memtest during the day...

And the answer is... Asus mobo are pure JUNK. Will return that piece of crap and switch to another manufacturer. A gigabyte GA-A320M-S2H has no problem booting the Ryzen 2700 with the 32G of memory the b350-i has problem with.

Worth noting that the Asus mobo passed two full memtest running the Athlon 200GE.
