New Z490, i7 10700k, 32gb Corsair Vengeance DDR4 ram and a GTX 1080. I upgraded from a z87 board with a 4790k and reused my old GPU because I'm waiting for the 3080 series to come out or whatever they call it. Anyway now that you know the specs here's the problem. As the title states when the system boots I get a post code D6 along with 5 beeps. I tried to reseat the GPU and still get the D6 and beeps, even removed the GPU and used the on board DP connection and integrated graphics and again same outcome. I contacted EVGA and they think it's a DOA board. They had me check the processor pins and take pics and send via email(haven't heard back yet). Everything seems to be in order. Anything I or the masters at EVGA haven't thought of? Also I re installed my old Z87 back into the case with the 1080 and the GPU works normally.

    i have heard of alot of VGA issues with z490 (especially any cards pre 16 or 20series) .. try plugging it into a lower pcie slot and see what happens. hopefully you already have it fixed tho.

    They are RMA'ing the board. Although the RMA has been in "cross ship" status since Tuesday. It does say allow 1-3 business days to ship. I hope it goes out today because I want to get my new system together. sitting on $800 dollars worth of parts that I cant use right now really sucks.

    OK the final result here is it was a setting in the bios. I had to remove the GPU, plug my monitor directly into the MoBo's DP and then I got a display. Then I was able to get into the bios and change a setting called "CSM" I believe. I would have never figured this out without the help of EVGA tech support. Christian at EVGA tech support was great. My only problem here is Why would this setting have to be changed for my GPU to work? its a EVGA GTX 1080 reference card. It's not that old of a unit. I was pulling my hair out with this.

    I had this same issue on first boot of my new build: 10700k, Z490 FTW, RTX 2070(s) I believe the beep code was no VGA output detected. I cycled through my displayports and hdmi ports on the card and found the one outputting. After drivers updates all ports display now.

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! OMG this issue has been absolutely nerve racking. I cannot tell you how many hours I spent disassembling and reassembling my motherboard trying to find connection issues, bent CPU pins, or misaligned RAM. I spent hours on forums looking for any information on this issue and I have no idea how i missed this post so many times. This had me absolutely livid thinking that I had somehow damaged one of my components. On my 4th CPU reseat, i actually bent one of my CPU pins because i was so frustrated and careless at that point. Not only that, I corrupted my hard drive twice and somehow made my first BIOS profile unusable even under default settings. I was able to straighten my CPU pin out almost perfectly, restored my bios profile, reformatted my hard drive and everything runs perfect now. I thought about the CSM settings, but brushed it off thinking everything I had was new enough not to need legacy support. Boy was this a learning experience. Thanks again!
     
    To elaborate further on what setting needs to be changed you need to do the following:
    -Remove any and all GPU's
    -Plug in DP/HDMI cord directly into the MOBO
    -Enter BIOS
    -Select 'Boot' tab on the top
    -Select 'CSM Configuration' near the bottom
    -Under 'PCI Devices' Select 'Legacy'
    -Install and plug in DP/HDMI cord(s) into the GPU(s)
    -Enjoy
