I can't even get the system to POST, and the system status LEDs on the board have CPU/DRAM lit up. I have a suspicion that the RAM may not be working in the board. Has anyone been able to get this particular RAM kit working in an ASRock x570-based board before? The product description only says Intel 300 series, but I had assumed that DDR4 as a standard means it would work (even if it only POSTed at non-XMP speed).
Compatibility is found in the memory QVL which you can get off the ASRock site, usually the downloads section for the board in question.
As a side note, I always recommend you consult this before buying memory for any board.
ASRock however is a bit of a weird one, they advertise speeds but often lack any memory tested at those speeds on their QVL, its not a common practice, Usually vendors will have at least one tested kit at advertised speeds. ASRocks QVL isn't as reliable as other vendors.
