    Why won’t this fit?

    Even with AMD, the screw pillars are supposed to go so that the plastic washers touch the motherboard and after that the mounting plate. You have installed the mounting plate first which then shorts everything on the motherboard.

    ryzen ram help !?

    Ryzen has always supported that configuration.
  5. Maybe Dell Precision 5530 2-in-1 (i7-8706G, Radeon WX Vega M GL)? i5/i7 models with 512G SSD and 16G RAM are 1800-2000$ in Dell Outlet.
  6. That particular board isn't one of those that can update BIOS without a CPU installed. You need a Ryzen 1st or 2nd gen CPU or 1st gen APU first.
  7. Skinflint found 2 that look promising? Alpenföhn Atlas - Discontinued so hard to find? Xilence M504D

    The Smallest No-Compromises Laptop

    Now to start waiting for a video of the GDP Win Max.
  9. There have been multiple AGESA that have restarted the numbering. First there was SummitPI, then RavenPI, that is PinnaclePI. The latest is called ComboPI and restarted the numbering yet again.

    X99 NVMe Help

    If you plug a NVMe drive in M.2 slot, PCIEX16_3 drops to PCIe 3.0 8x speed. So it's possible to still use a 4x NVMe drive in it. You could also use PCIEX16_5.
  11. Then I have no idea. I even forgot that you can't really jury rig AM4 mounting to TR4/SP3 I still had in my head a previous image of a normal Asetek AIO on a Epyc board and thinking it's marginal cooling. Random guess #2, is the VRM getting cooled enough from the U12S? Being intended for forced air situations in server chassis.
  12. Random guess, U12S coldplate is too small so all the dies are cooled unevenly? Try with a TR4 style cooler?
  13. Just because a PCIe slot is mechanically 16x, doesn't mean that it is also electrically 16x. There are a lot of boards where 2nd or 3rd 16x slot is actually running at 4x or 8x speed. It's just easier to buy slots that are physically 16 lanes wide but then not have all the pins populated, that way you can slot a 16 wide device into a port which has 4x or 8x connectivity and get to use the device.
  14. The chipset is just connected with a 4x link on all AM4 boards. With 2000 series it's PCIe 3.0 and with 3000 series it's PCIe 4.0. Literally only difference is link speed, nothing else. The chipset won't disable anything, just slower link to the CPU.
  15. The chipset link is PCIe 3.0 4x even though the general purpose ports provided by the chipset are PCIe 2.0. Maybe. PCIe 3.0 4x is still 4GB/s which should be enough?
