  1. List your full PC specs including the full model of your PSU.
  2. Aside from way overspending on the fans, it's a good build. Also, you might want to add more storage, but that's something you can do later. Edit: And you should definitely get a 5600X instead of the 3700X. Yup. Yup. Yup Yup. That is my preferred config, because the GPU will get better temps vs having the CPU cooler at the front, dumping it's heat into the case. Patience, A magnetic philips head screw driver. Some zip ties. Windows Installation Media/USB drive. Find a Youtube Video on LTT, or Paul
  3. That is a fire hazard. Stop turning the machine on. Unplug it. Take it apart. And return or RMA the motherboard.
  4. Like @SpookyCitrussaid, worst case scenario you have an un-activated Windows 10 install and it will still be a 100% usable system. So, just install Windows 10 and see what happens. It might activate automatically, or you can input your old Windows 7 key to activate it if you have that. Otherwise, there is no harm in leaving it un-activated.
  5. I would guess yes. The VRM on the board isn't quite up to the task of keeping a 3900X fed. What are your VRM temps? And is it throttling? Download hwinfo64 and find the VRM temperature sensor.
  6. Maybe a used GTX 1060/GTX 1070? You could do a build like this: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: Intel Core i5-10400 2.9 GHz 6-Core Processor ($164.99 @ Best Buy) Motherboard: ASRock B560M Steel Legend Micro ATX LGA1200 Motherboard ($124.99 @ Newegg) Memory: Silicon Power 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory ($54.97 @ Amazon) Storage: Western Digital Blue SN550 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($49.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Western Digital Blue 2 TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive ($44.99 @ Amazon) Case: Cooler Master MasterBox MB311L ARGB MicroATX Mid Towe
  7. It will work without touching any BIOS settings, and the XMP profile should work just fine, too.
  8. It'll run at the highest JEDEC speed in the SPD, which could be as low as 2133 or 2400, but might also be as high as 3200. It depends on how the manufacturer configured the SPD. You should just go to the BIOS and enable XMP.
  9. 64GB should be big enough. It sounds like you just need to clean up some files. You can use the installation media to install the latest build, but not update to my knowledge. So you would end up with a clean fresh install of Windows. If you've never fresh installed Windows on the laptop, that might be a good idea anyway to get rid of the bloatware that tends to come with laptops.
  10. Not quite, I asked for a screenshot of the graphs, so I can see the temperatures and clock speeds over time.
  11. It can be either, but I think in this case you should be okay.
