STRIX X470-I GAMING not supporting 3800x? (now 2700x wont work either)

for the record ive built maybe 12 computers and replaced cpu almost as many times, im confident i havent done anything wrong

so i got my 3800x and installed it on my STRIX X470-I GAMING (bios 2703)
and it simply wont boot. the top right LED on the mobo is red. manual indicates cpu error. took out the cpu and put it in again. same result. and again. same result.

the only conclusion i could think of was that the 3800x wasnt supported yet, after all it was available quite a lot more recently than the other 2.

so i plugged in the 2700x. it wont boot either. this time the top right led is orange. orange isnt mentioned in the manual as far as i can see. took it out and in again, same result. decided to do the cmos clearing with the screwdriver shortcutting those 2 pins, as described in the manual. same result.

now im kind of stuck here. any idea what to do?

typing this from a crappy old laptop
