Hello, @CactusWithAbs 

May I inquire if your current BIOS version is 3401, and if clearing CMOS has not resolved the issue?
The Intel platform motherboard displays Q-code D6, indicating an abnormality with the graphics card during the boot process.
Please refer to the "Troubleshootings for Graphic Card abnormal" section in [Motherboard] Common Q-CODE(Error CODE) and Troubleshooting.
Based on the information provided, may I ask if the same GPU was used in both the old build and the new PC?
Kindly try cross-testing with different PCIe slots or another GPU.

Thank you.

sharing complete hardware info & software config details will help us better understand the issue 🙂
