  1. Should fit just fine. That memory is quite low profile. In their marketing material they have G.Skill Tridents installed, which are considerably taller than the HyperX Fury Black.
  2. Having the possibility to go up to 450W doesn't mean that it will. You will most likely run out of thermal headroom before you manage to get to actual 450W power consumption. Having the option to update the bios so that it allows up to 450W is good for people who are actually going to take the card on LN2. The EVGA RTX 3080 FTW Ultra also has a 450W BIOS update because of this.
  3. Should be fine. Keep in mind the manufacturers always advise for a higher-wattage PSU as they cannot know what other hardware you have in your system. For example, the power requirement for a 5600X is a lot different than that of an overclocked Threadripper 3970X.
  4. Max-Q branded cards are lower TDP units. Otherwise said, you don't get the full performance.
  5. Personally didn't know that. Good for HDMI, bad for the user. As then the buyer ends up a situation like the OP.
  6. You need to look more closely into the spec sheet of the product in question. But generally if an HDMI version is not advertised in the marketing material, then it probably is not the latest one. Also, when it comes to computers and monitors, DP is usually the preferred connector.
  7. Some aftermarket coolers require the removal and replacement of the original backing plate with another instead. This is usually done for clearance purposes and is normal. Just follow the instructions that came with the CPU cooler and you should be fine.
  8. These numbers that you see don't mean anything on their own. It simply states that Gigabyte have validated that there is a kit out there that can reach those speeds, not that any kit will. If you want to know if your memory will for sure reach the advertised speeds on the box, check the motherboards QVL. Not only that, actually, the QVL should be a guideline for what memory kit to buy if you don't want to have any issues with compatibility. Full QVL with memory kit part numbers for your board can be found here: https://download.gigabyte.com/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_b550-aorus-elit
  9. Should work just fine. Some time ago, maybe 10-15 y back, most cases used to come with both HD Audio and AC 97, as not all motherboards had the former. Technically they are both interchangeable.
  10. Judging by the missing pins, that's probably just AC 97, but for some unknown reason they haven't labeled it properly.
  11. Honestly, I don't think that you will be able to overclock the 2600 more than 4.2-4.3GHz all core, let alone reach 5GHz with a 240mm AIO. The R5 2600 generally tops out about the 4.2GHz mark with few being able to achieve 4.3GHz. For 4.4GHz you will need more voltage, about 1.41V and a proper custom loop in order to cool it; for 5GHz you will need LN2. When overclocking make sure you test your system for stability. Being able to boot into windows after dialing up settings in the BIOS doesn't mean anything. Use Prime95 or Linpack Xtreme to test for stability. Running one of these s
  12. Interesting... Have you tried updating the BIOS? If not I suggest you do that. If the issue persists, but yet everything works fine, you can always just disable beep codes in the BIOS.
  13. Dude, please, use paragraphs next time. Having everything in one giant block of text is just very difficult to read. You said that you G.Skill memory, but not what speed it is running. From what you are describing, these reboots and inability to POSTs to me sounds like the motherboard is not able to train your memory properly. This can happen to any PC that is unplugged for some time, but is even more pronounced on ones where the CPU socket has bent pins if these had something to do with the memory. I would suggest the following. Once you are able to post, go into the
  14. Just to make it a bit clearer... You get the graphics card error when the computer POSTs, but you are still able to boot into Windows and still somehow everything works?
