  1. Specs: - B450 Aorus Elite (BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. F50, 11/27/2019) - Gigabyte 2060 Super Windforce - Corsair Vengeance 3200 16gb (XMP'd) - Ryzen 5 2600x (w/ Deepcool RBG cooler) (Not OC'd) - Corsair CX Series 750 Watt 80 Plus Bronze - Coolermaster H500 ATX case (With mesh front panel) - Sabrent 1tb NVMe SSD - Windows 10 Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362 x64 Across (seemingly) all games I'm having a crashing issue. It's consistent ranging from around 10-25 minutes of playtime. To remedy this I have tried: - Wiping and reinstalling drivers using DDU - Wiping my SSD (both by reformatting and restoring) - Updating Windows and BIOS. I have other symptoms too, I'm unsure if they're related. I have x2 2tb Toshiba HDDs plugged in that my computer refuses to recognize and I do not have the means to test them on another device. One was confirmed working last week. I've noticed when gaming under the "performance" tab of Task Manager, sometimes my GPU is completely misreading its usage. It will read 1-5% usage when it should be more like 80-100%. Sometimes instead of just crashing, I will blue screen with seemingly random codes. All these symptoms have remained totally consistent since my troubleshooting attempts have been made. I think that's everything. Thanks for your time guys!
  2. Yeah, that bottom row was a result of being ripped out of the bracket for the third time. I should have waited to take the pics after I unbent it. They have been unbent since then, none snapped, again. I am worried about trying again though, they will snap eventually. I guess I'll figure out a new mobo first.
  3. Yeah, it was the fan I was working with, the brackets made it really difficult to twist. I threw that fan in the box to return, and I put my wraith stealth cooler back on. So, as instructed I removed the wraith cooler to show you guys my pins, I twisted and everything and the CPU came right up with it again, again, again. It seems like the bracket has no grip anymore, I'm not sure. But I have been reapplying new thermal paste each time between two different brands.
  4. I was switching out my CPU fan and to my horror as I was taking it off, the CPU came with it. I quickly got to work unbending 3-4 pins, seated it back down properly and threw a fan back on it. I then tried to boot and there was zero response. So then I tried it again, from the top and again the CPU came off with the CPU fan. (SIGH)So I did everything twice, and still no sign of booting The rbg on the mobo is on so it's recieving power, but this mobo has no diagnostic indicators. So, which did I break, my CPU or CPU socket?
  5. Hi guys, I have a question regarding the best way to face my fans to maintain positive air flow as I've noticed a bit of dust gathering in a short amount of time. First off, my camera's a total potato, so sorry for the image quality. Let me explain what the pictures cannot. - Coolermaster h500 case - x3 200mm Coolermaster fans (on the front and top) - x1 CLC coolermaster 120mm AIO attached to the rear exhaust with push-pull config (x2 fans) - Gigabyte Windforce OC 2060 Super (x3 fans) With all that out of the way, my question is should the top fan be exhausting air?
