Third build of 3 identical setups, and sods law I'm having issues with the last one.

I get POST I believe - I reach the mobo boot screen with "Press F2 etc", but it hangs on that and pressing F2/DEL doesn't get me to bios. The mobo displays two lights - both DRAM and BOOT.

Removing all sticks of RAM and I get no POST and only the DRAM light.

I've removed all M2 drives and SATA cables, down to 1 stick of RAM (changed) and get the same.

I can only find info on the individual lights, not together, so I'm unsure if 2 lights means something else, or just separate issues with DRAM and BOOT.

Asus ROG Strix X570-F Gaming

Corsair Vengeance LPX (4x32GB) DDR4 3600MHz
Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity 24GB

Have you overtightened the heatsink?

Waitamo! You have got not only three 5950s but also three 3090s?! We are not worthy!

Doesn't seem so, one of those 'didn't really change anything, suddenly works'. I did re-seat the M2's so maybe it was just that.

And yeah, taken months to arrive but also got lucky, 3x 5950Xs and 3x 3090s. The 3090s were easy to get, was just lucky with the 5950Xs; pre-ordered from elsewhere a few weeks ago and it got dispatched 3 days later.
