Excellent news! Clap and thank you for updating your post. Can you also edit the thread header and add memory or UEFI version? Enjoy.

Yep, I updated the original post.
1.6 version doesn't support Corsair memory - 2.1 supports it.

UPDATE: So I got into BIOS and decided to update it to a newest version (2.1). It was successful.
Then I thought - can the new version bring a compatibility with my old RAM? So I again installed these troubled Corsair memory sticks - and system works!

Thanks for the update Derreck,

I guess even memory on their QVL list is subject to not working at all because I specifically bought one that was on the list to avoid having a compatibility problem....

Guess I should look for a different kit myself and see If I can get mine up an running too.

Hello again! I bought a new memory kit - now from ADATA (AX4U2400W8G16-SRD) and it works like a charm. I'm finally able to access BIOS and everything seems to be working fine!

So my advice to anyone who has a problem with the same board (ASRock X370 Gaming K4) - buy ADATA memory instead of Corsair!

For the sake of testing I tried to boot with GPU properly installed, with GPU without power cable and without GPU at all. In all these modes my PC is stuck in identical boot loop. I think GPU is not a problem here.

Just rechecked this - all 9 stand offs are on their place.

I letted it rebooting for like 10-15 minutes the first time then turned the power off. 
My monitor just says "No signal" all the time (and goes to sleep after a while).
