Bios update ASUS Maximus VIII HERO HELP!!!

Hello, im trying to get my motherboard working. It gets stuck with q code 70 with BOOT_DEVICE-LED on and CPU_LED on. Is this normal while updating bios?

also, I’ve waited all night for the bios to finish downloading but no avail.

What Ive tried:

-Reseating cpu

-reseating Power cables

-trying Bios 3802, 3703, 0603, 2202, 3201. (These would make the motherboard not show a picture and give Q code 80.)

What bios versions should i try? I’m trying to fix this motherboard since it’s “faulty”. Also im using bios 1001 and every few or more mins it would restart w the same screen.

CPU- i5 6600

Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS VIII HERO

DRAM- TFORCE 16GB (8x2)

To add on, when its stuck at 70 and the screen where its updating the bios, after a few mins it goes to 71, restarts then does the same process again.
