I'm hoping the BIOS flash works, but I'm fairly certain it won't. Two bad RAM sticks in one package seems highly unlikely. I could see one, that happens and has happened to me before, but not two. I also doubt the motherboard shipped with a BIOS version that wouldn't support memory that is on their QVL (it also shows it as compatible on G.Skill's "Ram Configurator"). My gut says dead slots. Now it's down to convincing my boss to cut me loose early to give me more time to tear my build apart and schlepp across town to exchange this turd.
The 0d error refereres to the number you get on the built in LED screen on the board if your board has one that is
The first C8H i got had a short circuited USB 3.0 headers so the board would just shut down after 15 seconds
The second C8H has two dead RAM slots i tried a really old 2133 MHz kit my 3000 MHz kit from the PC i have now and the brand new 3600 MHz and the board would give the 0d error no matter what
Took it out to the shop the guy at the counter just said its dead RAM slots and that he was tired of getting Asus boards with dead RAM slots so he just grabbed the board and took it out back
He came back about 5 min later and said yep dead RAM slots and with that i was done with Asus and asked for an Asrock X570 Taichi instead
Edit: if you dont want to give Asrock another go depite they have gotten better i would suggest Gigabyte instead
By the way that old Asrock board you have or had i had one about 10 years ago and it was god awful and that board was the reason i stopped buying Asrock and went to Asus and Gigabyte instead
Now we have come full circle and now its Asus that sucks and Asrock that are better
