    ROG Strix B450-I Issue with Ryzen 5 3600 (and maybe RAM...?)

    Hello there

    So i have a little bit of a problem with my ROG Strix B450-I Gaming Motherboard and my Ryzen 3600 CPU.
    I bought the Motherboard, knowing that i would have to update the BIOS to run Ryzen 3rd Gen. So i did that with a Ryzen 1200 and
    installed BIOS-Version 2801.
    The Problem is now, that the Ryzen 3600 is still not booting most(!) of the time. The weird thing is, that new CPU actually does boot
    sometimes. Not very often, but if it runs, i can get into BIOS, Windows and it works. When it doesnt boot, the Q-LED's are basically just
    cycling between CPU / VGA / BOOT
    I have tried multiple BIOS-Versions, i did install the newest AMD-Chipset-Driver, i also removed the Battery and i tried to run it with only
    one RAM-Stick. Nothing seems to fix it. Sometimes it boots, but i havent observed any pattern when it does and when it doesnt.

    I have a feeling that the RAM (Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3600 MHZ) may be a problem since the Memory-Q-Led always lights up when i install and start the Ryzen 1200 but never with
    the Ryzen 3600. I have also seen, that the RAM is running at 2133 under the Ryzen 3600 which seemed a bit weird.
    The RAM is listed in the QVL although with a different version number (CMK16GX4M2B3600C18 ver5.32 in QVL and i have ver3.31)
    I did also try to change the timings to those listed in the QVL.

    Is there something i can do from the Software-Side (Memory-Profile, BIOS etc.) or do i have to buy and try new RAM or a new Motherboard?
    Or any other ideas?

    Part-List just for completion:
    - ASUS ROG Strix B450-I Gaming
    - AMD Ryzen 5 3600 & AMD Ryzen 3 1200
    - Corsair Vengeance 2x8 GB 3600 MHZ
    - Zotac RTX 2070 Super
    - Crucial P1 M.2 1000 GB
    - Silverstone 600 W SFX
