  1. This looks like a 3D printing job. You an get usb3 and Thunderbolt adapters if that's what you want to put in the place of usb2 and 1394. It should be just measure, print and then mount with the connectors and screw it onto the case.
  2. Before you pull the CPU to check bent pins, unplug everything but the monitor, RAM and SSD and see if it boots with the RAM in the spots wit was having trouble with before.
  3. Got needle-nose pliers? Unplug the PSU and try to make the bad connectors look more like the good connectors then plug it back in and see if it's better. But yeah, A new PSU is in order.
  4. Can you se the drive in teh disk utility? I think it's just called disks.
  5. Yeah I was just trying to tell him what was working for me. I honestly don't know if a 3600 will run 64 GB at 3600 speed.
  6. I have 4 (32GB) sticks of - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0199SPVLQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Running at XMP settings on this old B350 https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B350M-BAZOOKA/Specification with a Ryzen 3600. It can be done. Mine doesn't need any manual settings or OC. That is good, but a little expensive DDR4, if you can find it.
  7. the VG27AQ1A is slightly faster, the VG27AQ has a better, brighter panel with HDR features. I would get the regular. I doubt you'd noticed the difference in speed from 165hz to 170hz. EDIT - Digging a little deeper it looks like they are bother HDR 10, but the VG27AQ is brighter at 350cd/㎡ vs 250 cd/㎡ for the 1A
  8. Have you tried pulling the card and reseating it?
  9. You can buy replacement fans for that card. Instead of reengineering the whole thing.
  10. Sorry I meant they aren't clear about a recommended spec. I agree, a new 5900X and dedicated modern GPU would be a good build for these requirements.
  11. They aren't very forthcoming with hardware requirements are they...? What have you been running this on since the trashcan went away?
  12. What software are you using, primarily? For games, the higher clocks of the AM4 chips are a better fit. Unless your application can leverage more than 16 threads or needs more than 128 GB of RAM, I would go with the appropriate 3600/3700/3800/3900 series chip. EDIT - Or new 5000 series.
  13. You could build an AM4 system that will be much more powerful, inexpensive and easy to use than what you are used too. I would seriously consider the use case before jumping into Threadripper.
  14. It sounds like the PSU to me. The original short circuit could have damaged it. I'd double check the connections you changed with the new MOBO to make sure everything is correct and tight, but it seems probable the PSU was damaged.
