Ive come here looking for help. Recently this year i built my first computer, with little difficulty and issues. my main issue was RAM, as i had not noticed it wasnt listed on qvl for my mobo and gave me problems regularly. Today i woke up to the RAM indicator light flashing on my mobo, and i didnt think much of it, and simply hard reset. Upon entering bios, i have EXTREME artifacts, my cpu is idling at near 75c, and overvolting to hell at 1.645v. while i have managed to "fix" the issue with my cpu overvolting (turning down a built-in performance enhancer, which honestly never did alot), i cannot boot. my hard drive, which had contained my installation of windows, leads to a black screen with a flashing underscore. The old usb tactic hasnt worked either, as all i get after attempting this multiple times (and reformatting the usb and creating the media twice now) is "BLInstallationLibrary failure 0xc0000229". i feel as if part of the cpu may be dead due to the artifacts, but im really not sure. and suprisingly, my RAM is reporting normal with the xmp profile applied, as are the voltages from my power supply itself. every component in this computer is brand new and less than a year old, minus the gpu (second hand, functions perfectly). ive tried what i know how to do and nothing has worked. i was using this computer just last night to play, and now its unable to do anything but BIOS. any help would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE : recently got a rtx 2070 strix. has not solved my problem with the artifacting. Any other recommendations?
