    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.

    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.

    Can anyone provide some links for a ASUS or GIGABYTE motherboard compatible with the new AMD Ryzen 9 series processors?

    I'm learning here myself. In almost the same situation and build but I'm keeping my new Ryzen 9 3950X , went with the Asus X570 . Working with things out the box is a good thing. I can upgrade later when my feet aren't so wet. LOL Good luck to you.

    RTX 3080 undervolting adventures

    Yes I tried switching it too. I had purchased a 32 GB kit on the QVC approved list, both sets of memory same results. I thought about just sending the video card back for exchange but what if that is not the real problem? I think it's best to send it all back. I even tried a very high quality...

    problems with health when running a pc might be a psu

    Does the outlet even have a ground? Two prong outlet, old wiring? Worst comes to worst you could try to run a ground from the case to a radiator or water pipe, anything to ground.

    Wood is better to insulate. Floor is better too. A huge desktop mouse pad too.

    problems with health when running a pc might be a psu

    Curious, is your computer on a metal desk? Can you test to see if PS is actually grounding? This is interesting on the nerve damage.
