Who needs standoffs they just add weight to your case.
@BaiterSkater please download gpuz and cpu-z run them and take screenshots of everything and post here this should give us all the info we might need other than what PSU your using.

I would suggest a clean install of Windows and installing drivers in the correct order, primarily chipset first but who knows what we might find with the correct info.

It's more than one by the looks of it though normally a short to case wouldn't even post but who knows.

poorly. It seems.

This has me concerned if things are even connected properly and tightly.

Can you show pics of your whole case, from the side so that all the components are visible?

Update: ever since i oced my ram to 3200mhz, my games seem to be working alot better. The stuttering has gone to a minimum.

Sure let me get a picture of it and ill post it.

This is the GPU-Z and CPU-Z stats for my desktop.

Just a samsung disk drive. I think its about to 85% but not quite. I keep that defraged and oragnized as much as possible. I think i have the oced version of the rx 580. Its got fxf on the side. I have windows 10, not 11. I have a pretty cheap aoc monitor, its oved to 70 hz. The resolution is 1080p, with a hdmi


Okay for sure. Where can i find your sig?? Sorry im a bit ignorant when it comes to this website haha
Is it the XFX GTS Black by any chance? Those RX 580s, out-of-the-box, have a boost clock of 1405 Mhz. Looks like it is! Cool! That's what I got in 2019, IIRC.

Be nice if the info wasnt hidden, yeesh.

Dev id and ssid are very important to finding correct bios for cards...

Grounding if a must for any electronic to work correctly.

If you didn't understand the sarcasm earlier in this thread, standoffs are important. IMHO, that must be addressed before we go further. That's a uATX motherboard in a case that appears to have had an ATX motherboard in it before. The number of and placement of the standoffs must match the motherboard. That motherboard uses 8 mounting screws.

So do i have to get new screws for it or change the placement of the screws in it ?

Compare holes in motherboad with holes in case and put brass standoffs with appropriate screws in it, or get to a shop please.

Remove your motherboard fit these in the holes on your case which correspond with the holes on your motherboard then re fit everything with all the screws.

That video actually omitted one part: how to find out which standoff holes on the case match with which holes on the motherboard. Okay otherwise.
If the OP is totally new to this kind of stuff, then what I recommend is that they watch a PC builder build a PC from start to finish(with no edits, if possible)
I did it myself when building my PC and the builder for me was Carey Holzman on YouTube.

You could potentially brick your motherboard/other components because of this. You need to verify if the motherboard is properly mounted on its standoffs.

Causes short circuit.

What is a short circuit?​


Electricity taking the easiest path

By Meg Murphy
Children are told: never stick a metal knife into a plugged-in toaster. You risk electrocution, or the toaster catching on fire.


The fear: a short circuit. For the heater inside a toaster to work, an electrical current must travel inside its conductive metal material. That current cycles through a closed circuit, which is a loop. A metal knife, however, presents the electricity with an optional path to travel — and it will take it.


“A short circuit is a connection between two parts of an electrical circuit that you don’t want to be there,” says Karl Berggren, professor of electrical engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He also heads the Quantum Nanostructures and Nanofabrication Group in the Research Laboratory for Electronics.

So do i have to get new screws for it or change the placement of the screws in it ?

Like said above, missing screws is alright (but be careful when messing with it because there's less support at the ram slots or power connectors), but screws under the board (if there are no screw holes) would be very bad.

Some cases come with only 4 standoffs for screws pre-installed (the ones in each corner, relative to the CPU cooler, you have two under the GPU, I believe), if that's what happened here then it's fine (fine-ish).

This, or the underside of the motherboard touching the case(because of bending/something else).
