  1. Hi, I completed my build 5 days ago (r7 3800x, aorus x570 elite, 32gb vengeance, rtx 2060s, Corsair rmx750) all in an NZXT h510. This is the second board that has been installed into this case, the first being a DOA Asus prime x570-p. As a result of this, the middle screw of the bottom row of standoffs has been threaded. I can no longer tighten or untighten the screw. Bearing in in mind that 7/8 screws are securely fastened, is this an urgent issue. Should I remove the screw and replace the standoff (if necessary) or just leave it as is? The screw isn’t as tight as it could be, although the mobo is secure
  2. These are the only references to m.2 in the manual I’ve found. Nothing about blocking SATA ports. **Edit** The 970 evo is nvme so shouldn’t affect SATA, right?
  3. All the parts (bar the psu) arrived for my second build today, and I have assembled everything and installed into the case. Having set everything up in the case I’ve just noticed that my 500gb 970 evo is in m.2 slot 2. (Below the pcie slots) There is is nothing in the mobo user guide to suggest whether or not this is acceptable. I’ve heard that in some cases SATA ports are disabled, which might prevent my from using the 1tb hdd from my old build. Any advice greatly appreciated
  4. Thanks for the quick reply, will try running it with fan installed as is. Was concerned as when I removed the fan first time some of the compkind was left stuck on the cpu with the rest on the heatsink. I did my last build 6 years ago with an Intel cpu, so not experienced with am4 mobos. Was considering purchasing an NZXT x63 aio in a few months so hopefully the compound on the stock fan should hold out until then. Thanks again for for the quick reply.
  5. Having installed the 3800x into my mobo, I began installing the wraith prism cooler, however, I put it in teller wrong orientation. Fortunately I hadn’t tightened the fan onto the board. although it some force to remove, I rotated it and then installed the fan correctly. I was wondering whether or not I will need to replace the thermal paste, as I don’t own any. I haven’t been able to power on the system to test cpu temps as I am still waiting on a psu.
