I have a Crosshair V Formula Z and I just completed my first build and went to boot and found that it did not go into UEFI and the Q-Code 50 popped up. My memory is 100% compatible. Any thoughts... Please...

Best to list details so people can help you better...what RAM etc. That is a Memory related code have you checked all your connections etc to make sure they are good....you have all the ATX connections populated with the correct cables.

Is the CPU seated well?

Is the RAM on the correct slots and seated properly.

Basically go over the build and make sure all the components are seated well...making good contact. Try one stick of RAM on recommended slot...remove all unnecessary peripheral connections...disconnect all unnecessary drives...

Hi! The code 50 is memory related. Mostly timings, frequency or voltage. Lke Arne said check the stuff all, and in bios check that dram is all on auto. So no xmp profile etc.

Yah sorry about not posting specs but here they are
Crosshair V Formula Z
AMD FX 8350
G.Skill Sniper 4GB DDR3 (x2)
AMD R9 Radeon
Corsair 850 PSU
Hyper.X 120 GB SSD

Now If my CPU was not seated well before, it is now and my ram is 100% compatible with this board. I realized my VGA.LED is on also for the Q lights. Error code 50 also on

Hmm.... do you have any way of testing the GPU in another system? Have you removed and reseated it to check it is in properly....no interference with anything...case....etc.

I am presuming it is powered correctly etc. and your board has all power connections plugged in OK...

Did you try single stick of RAM...the suggestions above...let people know what you have tried...

Just me being stupid. The ram clicks then latches in on both sides but I was too delicate with it. I appreciate all the help and sorry for wasting time
