Would someone be able to tell me if G.Skill RipJaws V DDR4- 3600 8GBx2 (F4-3600C19D-16GVRB) will work with a Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi Motherboard? I have an issue where the DRAM light comes and won't post but after I power off and on for about 5 minutes it will eventually take. Just wondering if this is a compatibility issue or not or a possible short in the mobo any help would be appreciated.

I have taken everything apart piece by piece and also done and out of the case build. I have reseated the cpu and checked the pins. Checked the PSU with one I know works and get the same problem. I have taken the RAM out and put just a single one in each slot each time with both pieces of RAM and still get the issue. Unfortunately I do not currently have diff DDR4 ram to test

CPU: I9 9900k
Memory: G.Skill RipJaws V DDR4- 3600 8GBx2 (F4-3600C19D-16GVRB)
Cooling: Noctua NHD15
Mobo: Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi
Storage: XPG SX8200 Pro M.2 2280 PCIe Gen 3x4 SSD
PSU: RM850x

Also, the computer will reset itself automatically about every 60 seconds if I just leave it on and do nothing

I have to boot the system constantly by manually restarting and it will sometimes take. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Best way to find out is to run memtest, if the memory is giving you any issues it'll show up there. You can get the free version
Also see if you have the latest bios installed, F12j. There is a list of fixes with the newer bios:
  1. Update CPU microcode SA-00295 to solve potential security vulnerabilities in CPU, please refer to more information:
  2. Enhance RAID AIC compatibility
  3. Fix CPU Vcore and power behavior
  4. Workaround beta BIOS to improve Kingston DDR4-2666 stability concern on some specific memory chip suppliers.
