    R5E10 initialization issues ... damaged board?

    I have Board initialization issues. When turning on the system it immediately halts with both a qcode and audio alert seemingly related to memory issues. I do have a 4x4 16GB memory kit of Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200 MHz (CMD16GX4M4B3200C16) which isn't listed in the QVL published for this board but please read on!

    Diagnostic response is:

    BIOS Beep: One continuous beep followed by two short beeps then a pause (repeated). No memory detected

    QCode: 53. Memory intialization error. Invalid memory type or incompatible memory speed.

    Isnt it a bit weird that the bios beep is indicating the system detects no memory installed while Q code indicates that there is memory present but it cant get it up and running due to the various reasons listed for the specific Q code? Reading through the Q code table in the manual states that if the system has no memory installed when powered on, the Q code generated should be 55, contradicting the bios beep diagnostic response!

    Diagnostic LED s for memory are off, ie, not lighting up at all. Noticed that the Diagnostic LED s for the PCIe lanes behave strangely too. When system is trying to power on, all 4 light up and then shut off and then only the 4th one comes back on in a blinking state. I have a 980 SLI setup occupying slots 1 & 3. Weird.

    Furhter funnyfications with the state of the board .... it does all of the above even with no memory installed at all

    I ve done most what I can think of ....

    1) Tested each memory slot with each stick individually.
    2) Used MemOk! button.
    3) Used SafeBoot button.
    4) Updated BIOS via BIOS Flashback (to 901).
    5) Reseated the CPU and verified the socket pin array and CPU contact surface integrity.
    6) Cleared CMOS via all means available, including removing battery and power cord for an extended period of time
    7) Varying mounting force of the EKWB Supremacy EVO waterblock

    Both the CPU (5930K) and the memory are confirmed working. They both came off my old MSI X99 SLI Plus board where they operated flawlessly.

    Is the board a coaster?
