I am at a loss right now and any insight would be greatly helpful.
 
This PC has worked just fine for over a year then today I wakeup go to boot up and as soon as the motherboard gets some power it then shutoff immediately, reboots itself then I get 3 quick beeps, a 1 second pause then 3 quick beeps again, the last two codes displayed are 7F then 4F.

I tried each stick of ram separately and still get the same scenario with the same codes.
 
Thanks in advance for any help.

    According to this manual:
     
    https://www.evga.com/support/manuals/files/131-CS-E399.pdf
     
    4F     DXE IPL is started
    7A–7F Reserved for future AMI DXE codes
     
    Page 151 doesn't list 3 beeps.....Not sure there
     
     Edit:
     
    only thing I see is 1 beep followed by 3 short beeps - Video failure.

    Have you try reset your CMOS back default your BIOS setting? If still cannot boot up then try boot up BIOS selector switch 2?
    If boot up successful then you can re flash latest update BIOS version again to BIOS Selector 1 to reset!

    After testing the ram and graphics card I seen your post and switching to selector 2 let me boot up just fine THANK YOU! 
    Now I'm going to figure out how to flash my bios like you said and hopefully everything works out fine, I'll post an update.

    My Z390 Dark did that sometimes on the older bios, 7F or F4 error and not boot. Not on 1.08 bios, must be fixed. Usually i just switch my bios switch to a different motherboard bios and power cycle, and it would boot up fine, than i would switch back to the original bios switch settings once in windows and reboot with no problem. But the error was occurring 1 time, about every 7 to 14 days.

    This just happened to me this am, was on BIOS #2 as I had issues with #1 a few months ago and still on 1.07. Switched to BIOS #3 and now it's booted, would like to hear from support on wth is causing this behavior, not normal.
     
    Update:
     
    Tried the method in thread below, did NOT work, out of ideas and patience with this crap.

    Which Video Card are you running? I had the 3 Red Lights, 3 Beeps during bootup. EVGA support said my 1200P2 Power Supply was the issue; I wasn't on board but played the RMA game. Received a "new" power supply and installed. Upon boot the same problem, they later told me my Power Supply tested fine but sent me a different PSU which I thought was strange. Anyway I called EVGA on a Saturday morning because I was still getting the 3 Beeps and three red lights on my 2080Ti. Long story short I had to update my video card Bios. Also, I noticed if I unplugged my system I had to reload the Video Card Bios. If I leave the system plugged in I have no issues. Fast forward, I just built a new system and expected when I installed the video cards I would have to flash the bios. I didn't, everything worked on first boot, so whatever it was went away when I changed Mother Board and Power Supply. I want from a Z390 Dark to an MSI Z490 Unify, and a EVGA 1200P2 to a Corsair AX1600i power supply.  By the way Saturday morning support with a real live person on the phone, Kudos to EVGA for taking care of the customer!

    I have this one:
    https://us.msi.com/Graphics-Card/GeForce-GTX-1080-Ti-GAMING-11G
    also have 9900K and 32G 3866 C18 GSkill approved ram...
     
    I've never had to update a vid card bios ever, not in this modern age. Not sure but IMHO their assessment of the PSU is/was garbage, hardly think with 1200W unit it would be but sending another PSU was in my opinion them grasping at straws. I also have their 1000W P2 PSU for the past 3 years which has been pretty good, doubt it is the issue. Glad to hear things are better for you again. I'm in the process of RMA'ing my board and have ordered a few new boards from Asus and MSI in the meantime and will try them out on Sat when delivered, lucky for me I'm on my Asus Scar 17 laptop (i9-10980HK, 2080 Super, 2TB RAID0 SSD)

    Probably not your video card. 1080Ti doesnt pull as much juice as the 2080Ti.

    I doubt it’s your video card. The 1080Ti was the most rock solid card Nvidia ever made. My next guess would be your motherboard. Mine happened on V1.07. I know there is a V1.08 out now. You could try loading it on one of the three bios stores you have.

    Bios battery voltage issue maybe.

    This is an odd one. You switch from one bios to the other it’s fine for awhile and then you get the same symptoms. Am I following you correctly?

    correct, I was on 1.07 and while on #3 BIOS I flashed #1 while in windows, rebooted, 5 beeps (same symptoms as I had last spring with another Z390 Dark, which ultimately got replaced and sold, this present board was rock solid since April and then BIOS #1 crapped a few months ag0, then 2 last week, moved to 3 and where I'm at now). Flipped back to 3 and did #2, same crap then after some boots same thing with 3 except I never flashed to 1.08 on it. You know, the guys are great in support no doubt, absolutely but the quality of these boards or BIOS implementation I don't know has gone down steadily over the years which is troubling to say the least, what good are $500 mobos with 3 BIOSs when none are worth a s**t. My Z270 FTW was more solid than this board, which is rather tough to swallow since it was more than twice as cheap.

    Do you have the PCIe plug at the bottom of your motherboard plugged into your power supply?

    if you're referring to the one in the far lower left corner no, not needed in my case, why? I'm disappointed that I haven't heard from support for an RMA code, no urgency on their part. I just don't understand the symptoms that has presented, I've adequate power, PSU (EVGA P2 Plat) is only 3 years old and when the #1 BIOS went TU, it was when I switched monitors from a 28" 4K to my current 43" 4K, that's it I just don 't get it especially after clearing CMOS repeatedly which has always worked in the past. Comes as no surprise to me now that these boards are no longer carried by them, go figure.

    I’d give it a try, I think you are experiencing voltage issues. Even though your running a 1080ti and I am assuming you’re not overclocking to work this problem out. I would give it a try to see if it’s a voltage stability issue. Which power supply do you have, if it’s the 1200P2 I would also see where the ECO switch is set. The eco switch on mine was in the ON position when mine had the same issue. I set it back to the off position and have not had the issue. In the on position it’s changed the 12v bus rail to single instead of dual.

    1000W P2 Plat, I'll double check the ECO but pretty certain it's off, appreciate you're help...

    I see your in Bozeman, I used to live in Idaho Falls. Also, try the PCIe connector on the bottom left of the board. I know you shouldn't need it but its worth a shot. Nothing is harder to nail down on a Computer than power issues.

    Yes not too far from here, beautiful area. I will try the bottom connector, can't hurt I suppose but can't believe why one would need to but anyhow. ECO was in fact off, wish I still had my board in case to try that, I may do so here soon. One thing I can say positively is that EVGA BIOS software layout is about the best, I do NOT like MSI however, their BIOSs are painful.

    Yea I switched from EVGA to MSI when I bought my i9-10900KF. MSI, Asus and Gigabyte all try to run Overclocking from the desktop which only works in light use cases. Stability get silly once you start pushing things. The EVGA Bios seemed to have the easy overclock nailed down. I wish I could get an EVGA Z490 Dark but the price is a bit steep. I just built a new system last Sunday and have been tuning it the last week. So far I've got things running pretty well. I keep having problems with 3D Mark screwing with my Fan Signals on my 2080Ti's. I just put push-pull Noctua fans on both radiators and went to Noctua NAFC1 controllers without the motherboard connection, direct to power supply only. Issue went away. I wonder if the folks at 3D Mark know about this. I'm sure I'm not the first to see this behavior. 3D Mark Benchmark software should not be interrupting the fan curve when its loading a benchmark run but I was seeing this behavior every time I started a run.

    interesting, I have 2x 120mm BeQuiet 2200 rpm fans in push on my Corsair AIO and 3 case fans running. Honestly, I don't overclock anymore what's the point with all the baseline speed now, my case with 9900K and 1080 Ti, all the speed I need for my needs. From my understanding, it's NOT good to run separate PWM fans on a splitter off mobo header but OK off say the Noctua controller (in general)? btw my 2 rad fans (BeQuiet) are on separate headers on the Z390 Dark...

    I was running splitters from the motherboard headers but was worried about the Voltages on the motherboard so I went to Noctua controllers and got huge cooling improvements cards never go above 55C when pushed to the limits. CPU is running at 5.3GHz stable with Noctua 140mm on an Arctic II Freezer 420. I haven't split them off yet but will as soon as I get another Noctua controller. I'll bypass the motherboard on that connection as well. I'm just trying to win the EVGA Bucks Mods Rigs contest to get an EVGA Z490 Dark. I'm nearly done with all the mods. I only use open air cases now. An enclosed case is always going to run hotter.

    Almost exact same thing happened to me, started up, 4F, switched to different BIOS, now I’m getting 4 beeps, but it boots and runs fine. what the heck is going on!?
    The thing that pisses me off the most is I lost my OC profiles, I had like 15 hours of tuning that memory to perfection. So far got it back to 58.5 GB/s at 40 ms latency, still well short of the 60.5 GB/s at 31 ms 😡
