I had the same when going from 1600x to 3900x.
I tried A LOT OF THINGS.
AND I am still not sure what fiexd it in the end.
All I know is, that I put my old CPU back in.
Flashed the BIOS to 5.95, put everything default (load defaults).
Restarted the PC, went into windows,.. shut down the PC (power cycle, from completely off).
Went back into windows, did another shut off.
Put in new CPU.
Removed my Optane drive from PCIe slot, voila it booted.
Set everything up, set PCIe to 2x 8X and to Gen3, restarted and boooted into windows.
Shut down, and put my PCIe Optane back in.
So really, I don't have an easy 100% path for you to follow, but at least you know what steps I did.
Maybe all i needed was to reseat the CPU properly and some pins didn't allign. I heard even from Gamer Nexus they had same experience.
It is not your CPU, it is not your Mobo,.. it is AShatRock ****in with you.
