    Zenith Extreme Alpha Code AD Detect Memory

    All started when I decided to put some thermal paste on the cpu.

    A day before I had updated my bios which by that time was 0405.

    The next day I unscrewed my Fryzen and then cleared the top of the cpu gently and added the paste. Then I started the pc and it was ok.

    The problem started when I decided to unscrew the Fryzen again to see if I had put enough paste on the cpu.
    For my convenience I removed the memory sticks.
    After this when I tried to start my pc I got this error.

    I checked the 4 memory sticks one by one in DIMM A1. All good.
    When I try to put only a memory stick on D1 ( I don't know if this is right) the message appears.
    When I put all 4 memory the message still appears.

    I have examined very carefully the memory slots with a loupe for bent pins and I have also opened the cpu to see if there are any pins that are being bent too.
    All seem fine.

    I have removed all components and all power cables of the motherboard including the battery. I left it for almost 2 hours but with no luck.

    I don't know what else I can do.

    I sent an email to Asus and their reply was that the RAM kit F4-3200C14Q-32GTZRX has not been tested by Asus for this motherboard and there are no official information about the compatibility.
    They told me to check the motherboard with a RAM kit of the Qualified Vendors list.

    Is there a case that the update from 0405 to 2101 caused this?
    I don't have any other memory to test the slots.

    Do you think I should buy another RAM KIT to test it?
    I would like to upgrade my RAM anyway.

    Any suggestions?

    Here is a video from memory slots and cpu

    I've noticed that the ZEA is very picky with memory. It is listed as compatible by G.Skill themselves, though (source: https://www.gskill.com/qvl/165/167/1...4Q-32GTZRX-Qvl)

    I don't see anything damaged in your video.

    A solo stick should be in A1 (1-5 in the ZEA User Manual)
