    PC will not start (Exhaustive details inside post).

    Yes try just 2 memory sticks ,A2-B2. That's what works for me. Oh I see you broke a button. When the new board comes take some electrical tape on the standoffs and poke a small hole for the screw and install on top of it all. Just some insurance and easy to do.

    The RX 6000 series Owners' Club

    I got an AMD XFX Radeon X6800, strictly stock. Love it. Was part of my new build in my signature. I paid too much for it on Amazon but I wanted it for my build. Already a collectors item. LOL Part of my nicest build. This system has been flawless from day one.

    Probably be around $4000.00 if you can find one. Crazy how computer building has gone.

    Nothing but BSODs, fresh Zen3 build.

    I followed the memory finder on the G-Skill site and bought, they were not on the motherboard QVC but G-Skill stated they tested and yup, they work fine. Good price , great memory. I haven't been able to run 1 T in ages and not even timing either. 16-19-19-39-85 1T, 3600 speed memory running...

    NVidia, What gives? Seriously?!?

    Honest reviews is what sells for me. I always read the reviews and you can tell where there is honesty, and very much appreciated at that. Glad I'm moving over to AMD all the way in my new build.
