    Q code CC then 55

    Hello, I've got a Maximus X Hero Wifi AC and an Intel I7-8700.

    Whenever I boot up, I see an Error CC then it goes to 55.
    I can't reach BIOS and never did. I've read about memory issue regarding this so I tried every possible slot with my ram without success.
    I have two 4gb 4133hz Corsair Vengeance and I also tried with my friend Ram (Corsair vengance 3200hz).
    I also did the memok test without success with every slot / ram combination possible.

    Asus support told me it wasn't the ram frequency the problem since it's default at 2k ish, can't remember the exact number.

    I don't have access to another 8th gen processor to test and I'm not really sure If I have bent pins since it's my actual first build and I'm kinda new to all this.
    I took a picture of the board if anyone could tell me if there's something bend in there, that would be great.

    First pull everything out of the case and test it on a box top
    Before installing your CPU again lay it on a flat surface and inspect the corners to make sure the corners are not bent up. Since the 7700 the PCA part of the chips are wafer thin and a little too much torque on the heat sink will bend the corners up. A hair dryer and a little finess and you can bend it flat again. Had this happen on a 7700K and just found a large socket that went over the IHS and touched the corners and put a 10lb weight on that and left it overnight. Woke up, put it in and all was well.*

    Possible Fix? Yeah rma the board. I see 2 spots that look suspect (especially the lower one), whether that is enough to cause the issue you are having IDK but
    I would get a flashlight & look up close.
