Hi!
First of all i wanna say that my english is far from perfect but i'll try to explain the problem i have.

My PC:
X470 MSI GAMING PRO MAX
A-DATA XPG SPECTRIX D41 3200 2x8
ASUS DUAL GTX 1070
I bought a 5600x and it doesnt boot on my mb at all. All i get trying to boot is black screen and BOOT led on mb.
The latest bios version with ryzen 5xxx support (tried beta also).
My old 7 1700 works just fine on this system.
5600x is 100% working (boots just fine on my friends asrock b450 gaming k4).
Is there any way to make it work? Help please.

Boot LED means, no boot device found, it's the least severe error you can have. It would be worse if the CPU LED was on.

Can you see the BIOS screen with the 5600X?

Nope, black screen with "No video input" only.
I even tried different 100% working ram kit but it didnt work out.

My mb has 12 pins cpu power connector but my psu has only 8 pins. Can it be the reason?
I can feel with my finger the cpu goes warmer with time.

There is no 12-pin power connector. The mainboard has an 8-pin EPS12V and a 4-pin ATX12V connector next to the CPU. But only the left one, the 8-pin EPS plug, is necessary (obviously, if your PSU has both, connect both). The second connector spreads the total power distribution over two plugs and two cables, in order to prevent the cables or plugs from heating up too much when you have a CPU with a very high power draw. Meaning, useful for a high-end CPU and/or overclocking (which is not advised anymore with current CPUs). The connectors combine again on the board and feed the CPU voltage regulator module.

Any CPU will get warmer after being turned on. That just means it's getting power. But now you also have to get an image on screen. Can you connect a PC speaker to the pins on the mainboard, to hear the beeps it makes during booting?
