Posting as a separate thread to hopefully get some more help, hope this is okay and that I am in the right forum section!
Hi all, am glad I found this forum! been having issues with this board since I received it over a year ago now.
I had bench tested it all fine, then installed it into an NZXT H440 - The board itself 99% of the time just doesn't boot - with Q code 8
Googling comes up with no resolution and it seems a lot of others have this issue: https://www.google.com/search?q=asus+q+code+8
Now, what the issue is exactly? I don't know. I thought it might be my ram (Corsair CMR / Vengeance RGB 3000MHz) but what I do know is that TURNING MY PC ON ITS SIDE allows the PC to work like absolute normal...?
That's right, for a year I've used my PC sideways on the floor and taken my case apart multiple times just to look if anywhere was grounding out but there's no issue I can see anywhere.
Has ANYONE heard of this issue? HOW do I fix it? I really wanna stick my PC upright again.
1700X @ 4GHz 1.375V (issue happens at stock too) - Coolermaster ML240 AIO w/ 2x Corsair ML120s
2x8GB Corsair Vengeance RGB + 2x16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX @ 3000MHz (tried them both separately, issue happens the same)
Crosshair VI Hero - BIOS - 6903 (happened on every bios prior, I originally thought it was memory compat so I had a beta bios with the latest AGESA at the time installed to it previously)
M.2 PCIE Samsung 970 EVO 250GB
EVGA 750W G2
TLDR: PC won't boot when it's upright, boots fine on it's side. Q Code 8. Halp.
Thank you in advance
Sidenote, does anyone know how to change the monitor the bios displays on?
