  1. Have had this sort of thing happen to me on older boards, but usually it occurs on boards which have more dimm slots. Both of my X58 and X79 boards randomly decided to have one memory channel die. Just to eliminate any options, try to re-seat the processor and make sure no pins are bent in the socket. Also make sur no thermal compound made its way inside.
  2. ^ What do you mean whit this statement, don't quite understand it. When paired with a dedicated graphics card, the Intel11600K is the superior processor for gaming.
  3. To me it looks like pretty much the same exact board, but this time with a dash of blue sprinkled on the heatsinks.
  4. Just to add to my previous comment, if it is not supported you can see from which BIOS it is supported. Some older boards have different revisions and the later ones may support Ryzen 5000, but the older may not, at least not until BIOS is updated. Check the website you are buying from to see if they list he revision of the board. Also, just fyi, some retailers will offer to update the BIOS to the latest one for you before you take the board home / before it is sent to you, for an additional fee.
  5. Pick a motherboard you like, go to the motherboard manufacturer 's website and see if the board advertises Ryzen 5000 support out of the box. Alternatively you can look into motherboards that have BIOS flashback capability without CPU being installed.
  6. Yeah, I wouldn't put that type of processor in this board or any low end B560 board for that matter. What is the budget that you have set aside for a motherboard?
  7. The compatibility warning is due to the fact that some AMD B550 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vermeer CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions.
  8. Biostar is not known for making the best quality boards. What processor do you intend to pair it with?
  9. Unless you are getting this power supply for a very low end system, I wouldn't go with it. What are the components you are going to be pairing the PSU with? If you have about 100 Euros to spend I would get the Corsair RM750x, which is currently on sale -> https://www.amazon.de/-/en/Corsair-PC-power-adaptor-RM550x/dp/B079QGPVMC/ref=sr_1_11?dchild=1&keywords=Netzteil&qid=1631048048&sr=8-11 If you don't need the 750W, you can also go for the 650W unit for just under 90 Euros. That being said, 750W is usually the sweet spot allowing for decent upgrades in the future without going ov

    2020 - The Black and Purple Goliath

    After graduating university in 2018, me and my wife finally got our own place. This automatically meant that the small build which I created some years ago could finally be replaced. In 2020, I finally splurged and got my thus far most favorite computer case of all times - Cooler Master Cosmos C700P. Throughout the year, the build underwent several changes. Most prominently it began with a simple 120mm and a GTX 1080 and ended up with full custom water cooling and an RTX 3080. To top that off the RTX 3080 was replaced in February 2021 with a PowerColor Red Devil 6900XT, as I wasn't exactly hap
  11. Please list the full specs of the system. Also what is the error message in the BSOD that you are getting? Have you tried going through the dump files? Has anything been recently changed (hardware or software)? Do you have any overclocks?
  12. Check it carefully. Unless the scratches are super deep and copper is exposed or a component got nocked off I wouldn't worry about it. Scratching the motherboard on the standoffs is bound to happen to anyone at some point. I myself have done it at least twice and had never had any issue.
  13. Sorry to say, but I don't think there is a build that can do what you need to in that price range, regardless if it is new or used. I would save up a bit more and then try to look for something decent on the used market.
  14. I would look into the Cougar lineup. The Cougar MX410 Mesh G in particular. It is not super high-quality case, but most compact mid-towers aren't.
  15. While gaming open task manager on the second screen and see what is being maxed out and thus causing the stuttering. 3200G paired with 8GB of memory isn't exactly high-end so you can't expect it to perform as if it were. Another thing to note is the Windows install. Have reinstalled Windows recently? Are you reusing an old Windows image from anther computer?
