Using ASUS 470, intel I5, Geforce 1060.
First, I was updating the ram from the 8gb it came with to 32 from a Corsair kit I had laying around. When I attempted to change the memory speed in the bios from the default 2133 to 3200 advertised, the bios would just boot to safe mode and asked me to change the setting to something stable. So I was unable to get it to boot to 3200mhz. I tried removing the CMOS battery and replaced it after a couple minutes (I had to remove the graphics card to get at it...and yes, I switched off the psu, unplugged, and tapped the power button a few times to drain any juice in the system). I put the graphics card back in and then attempted to boot. It will no longer boot, no beep, nothing. The case fans and cpu fan will spin up and rgb will turn on, but it will not post. I tried repeating the process, no luck. I remove the corsair ram and reinstalled the original 8gb stick and powered up, but same results.
Thoughts? What have I done wrong? What should I try next?
