New Motherboard Windows install

I've been trying to install Windows 10 on this computer for over a day now and consistently it bricks before I can even get to any semblance of a Windows logo. I have tried unplugging every USB device, used 3 different boot discs/USBs, read countless forum posts, and nothing. If anyone has had the specific problem I am having that would be greatly appreciated, video detailing exactly how it bricks below. If you need any more info, just ask, I have a pretty good understanding.

At this point it is defective.

Talk to the maker what to try then get it exchanged. My bet is they'll update the BIOS and check if the CPU is supported.

Thanks for the speedy response!

I'll try taking it up with the company. Anything I should mention to them? Just cause I still don't really get what's up with the diagnosis. Either way, thanks!!

I can't tell which BIOS you have.
https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/PRIME-Z390-A/HelpDesk_CPU/ shows the CPU is supported BUT there are three 9700K listed and the latest BIOS is dated 7-1-2019 which yours is in 2018.

I noted a few items so I take it this is not possible for you to update. In that case back to the seller and demand they send you a current motherboard and the BIOS good to go. Not everyone knows how to deal with this.
