  1. You should have both, the 8 Pin EPS connector for the CPU and the 24 pin ATX connector as well as any auxiliary power cables for graphics cards or SATA devices.
  2. You do have the 24 pin installed correct? I think they were asking if you had all your power cables plugged in.
  3. Sounds like it's not a GPU problem then, I would guess motherboard but I'm not real sure.
  4. does it look like the GPU is getting power? Try booting with the 285 to isolate the problem to the 550, it should boot with a 500w just don't put a heavy load on it.
  5. Does anything happen when you turn it on? Beep codes? Do the fans turn on?
  6. Do a clean install of Windows to eliminate HP's bloat, you should really consider adding a second 4GB stick at some point. 4GB is pretty low for modern computing.
  7. There are so many people building rigs with 5000 series ryzen chips getting screwed over by boards requiring a BIOS update. Poor guys.

      Sometimes u can't deny that Intel's way to ditch board is better for the customers because of this


      Also, ryzen only supported their board one generation more than Intel, that's still too close for normal user's upgrade cycle


      Let's see if AMD learnt, and supports more generation with their upcoming socket

      @Moonzy I like what AMD is doing and I think it makes upgrading easier, but when building from scratch I do think that in a way Intel's approach is actually better since customers don't have to worry about out of the box support.

  8. Try doing what Moonzy said, it's likely that your board will need a BIOS update in order to support Ryzen 5000 series processors.
  9. It will depend on the game, you'll get higher fps overall but the FX series is pretty bad by today's standards and it will bottleneck a 580. If you can upgrade to a cheap Ryzen 2000-3000 series chip down the line you would likely see a pretty sizeable performance bump.
  10. It doesn't seem like this board supports the ability to update the bios without a CPU, the earliest version that supports the 5000 series is version 7C36v1B which released on November 11th. It likely didn't ship with that version. I've heard of some manufacturers shipping out "BIOS update kits" that include the necessary components to update the BIOS so that may be worth looking into. Otherwise just pick up a cheap 2000 series chip (your motherboard also seems to support certain 1000 series chips too https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/PRESTIGE-X570-CREATION#support-cpu)
  11. Yes it will work. For future reference all motherboard manufacturers will have a CPU support list on the motherboard product page. Here's the list for yours: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B450-AORUS-M-rev-10/support#support-cpu
  12. I like the 32in and it's great for me but it can be too big for some people, depends on sitting distance.
  13. I'm currently using the Gigabyte G32QC 32inch 1440p 165hz monitor and it's pretty good. Though 32 inches is quite big, LG's 27GL83A-B is a 27inch 1440p 144hz IPS which would also be a great choice.
