Upgraded to a 3090. Mbb is ASUS Maximus VIII Gene which gives a 00 code.

Reseated old GPU, checked all wires, RAM and power.

Still same 00 code.

yep checked all the power connectors on both ends, checked the CPU and RAM.

Tried with no GPU and still same error.

00 code on asus is no cpu detected. Could also mean not getting enough power. re-seat cpu and maybe test again with old gpu and see if that boots in before putting the 3090 back in

Ok, so looks like the mbb was damaged. I got a new mbb (the exact same model) and it posts but no display is outputted using either HDMI or DP.

The 3090 works fine in a more modern PC.

I have not tried your motherboard before but I know that some default to outputting video using the inbuilt gpu, so first thing I would try is using the hmdi on the output panel on the back of the pc.
