    I have an old intel system minus the GPU. I just sold my rx480. So none of the parts are compatible other than the GPU which has already been tested. This is my second 5700xt. My first one had similar issues,so maybe it is a red dragon problem...which sucks because I liked their card.

    Yea. I was interested to see if anybody knew what caused the GPU issue. I didn't think shorting a mobo could fry a GPU. I guess that is more of a question for Red Dragon's tech support though. The older system was funky too. I had to jury rig my cooler onto it because I didn't have a stock intel cooler, so i wasn't confident that system was fully functional.

    Yes. I forgot to note, that my keyboard receives no power. This scares me because it likely means that my CPU is not working. So, my mobo indicates it is a GPU failure. My GPU fans are also not spinning up. However, that could be CPU or GPU related.

    About a week ago, I plugged my mouse into a usb port, while the system was running. It shut off immediately. It proceeded to not post. I went through all the steps, however, it still wouldn't post. Everything would run however. I purchased a new motherboard. The system still won't run. Of note, I received my new psu, the same day I received my new mobo. I'm convinced it is the graphics card. My mobo is stuck on the white VGA code, which is one prior to boot. I have a new GPU on the way. I'm more interested in what could have happened. PSU frying my GPU? My mobo shorted; however, I don't think it could have fried my GPU? My old GPU is on the way to get repaired, so I'm sure I will have answers soon. I'm curious to see if anybody knows what could have happened though? Also, I was able to rule out my CPU because my old intel system wouldn't post with my GPU either. *memory is 3600. It doesn't matter but I thought I should state it.

  5. I already ordered another motherboard. What scares me is my GPU won’t post in a separate system. However, that system has the same PSU. Luckily, I have a new PSU on the way. I just have to wait. I guess I shouldn’t panic buy because I’m bored but I’m frustrated. Maybe if I went through Red Dragon, I could RMA the card. Unlikely but I’ll try.
  6. Long story short, I purchased a cheap refurbished X570 motherboard because it was the only white one I could find in stock. The other night, a USB shorted my system and fried the motherboard. I plugged my graphics card into my old intel system and it won't post. I think that system has other problems; however, my graphics card might be gone too. It was a 5700xt Red Dragon. If I do have to purchase another graphics card, I'm unsure of what to go with. I thoroughly enjoyed the 5700xt, but I don't think it makes sense to buy another one. Moreover, I would like a white card too. This card interest me (https://www.newegg.com/asus-geforce-rtx-2080-super-rog-strix-rtx2080s-o8g-white-gaming/p/N82E16814126396?Description=white 2080&cm_re=white_2080-_-14-126-396-_-Product). I haven't done a ton of research into 2080 cards. How is there price to performance? Also, with 3080 on the horizon, I'm unsure of what to do. Buy an expensive card that will likely last me a few years. Buy a cheaper card, that I can resell, when 3080 drops. Honestly, I should buy whatever suffices my current needs, which is mostly 1440p gaming and some 4k gaming. Furthermore, I hate to add to chorus of "should I wait" post, but I'm stuck in this lose lose GPU pickle and can't decide.
  7. That is the plan. It sucks because almost every X570 board is out of stock. More particularly, I need a white one.
  8. Edit: Well, I'm pretty sure a USB shorted my system and fried my motherboard. So annoyed.
  9. Every step that I have the ability to do has been exhausted. Still won't post. I technically have enough components to try my GPU in another system; however, I would like to save that for last resort. System still powers up. Nevermind, I forgot, I threw out my intel CPU cooler, smh.
  10. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/kjgruber/builds/ Still doesn't post without the mouse. I currently only have my display port connected, no peripherals. I also added some info to the original post. However, my motherboard is different. It is the ASUS Prime P. Also, Aio is H100i platinum.
  11. My system was running fine. I tried connecting my mouse to the system and it shut off. Now my system won't post. Everything powers on, including the mobo, graphics card fans, aio cooler. This is very odd. I'm sure I'll have to go through the steps for a system not posting. Has this ever happened to somebody. About 20 minutes ago, I connected a usb header extension. Could it be my PSU? It is a crappy 700w thermaltake one I had to buy at best buy because Corsais is taking three weeks to ship my new PSU.
  12. My temps under load are actually lower than my idle temps sometimes. I’m just sick of my GPU fans going to 60% every 10 mins for a few seconds and then stopping. I guess it’s a small gripe but I’m annoyed lol.
  13. The setting is not there. I’m unsure if it is because of my graphics card or 20.4.2. I’m using afterburner; however, it will not work when zero rpm is on.
  14. 50-58c. Once it hits 60, my fans spin at full speed and it lowers to 45, and then moves back up to 60 over the next few minutes. It’s quite annoying. I know the temperatures aren’t harmful but I would prefer for them to be lower
  15. My custom fan curve will not work with zero rpm on. My idle temperature for my GPU is too hot.
