  1. Thank you all for the replies. I figured it out what the problem was. Apparently one of the 3 PCI-e extension cables that I was using had a busted pin. I replaced the cable and now works like a charm.
  2. Sorry, not sure I understand the question? I'm a first time pc builder According to the ASUS manual the Q-Code 02 is attributed to "AP initialization before microcode loading" Does that help?
  3. Sorry I missed to say in my list that I do have an AMD 5950x. I also have the latest BIOS on a flash drive and tried to go into the BIOS system, kept pressing DEL and F2 but I am not getting a display
  4. Hi All, I've just finished building my new PC and when I boot it I get no display on my monitor. However I am seeing the error code 02 on my motherboard. Does anyone know what that is? I have the following components ASUS motherboard (x570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero) 32GB (4x8) RAM Corsair Vengeance PRO RTX 3090 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme M.2 Firecuda 520 CPU AMD 5950x Cooler: Lian Li Galahad 360 (In the picture the RGB isn't coming up but I think that might be because I played around with the RGB daisy chain trying to sync it up with the case fan
  5. OMG I feel so dumb, you are right, I needed to check the opposite sides. Thank you so much and apologies for my stupidity
  6. The PSU cable is definitely PCI-e as it says so on the cable itself and it does have the bridge that connects those 2 pins (being a 6+2 format) but the cable mod has full 8 pins. Nonetheless, both the end of the Cable mod and the PSU cable that should go into the GPU have the same structure which somehow is different then those shapes on the GPU connectors.
  7. The PSU cable is 6+2 and it says PCI-e on it whereas the Cable mod has full 8-pin
  8. Yes I'm positive, the other end that goes into the PSU cable wouldn't even have the external connectors to go into the PSU. See picture with the other end as well.
  9. but that is not supposed to be turned around actually as it plugs in with the plastic thing at the top.

I checked and this is the case for both the PSU cables as well as for the Cable Mods
  11. You are right, I took a better look and it does seem that one of those pins has 2 cables going into it.

I bought an RTX 3090 Aorus X
  13. Hi All, I've just tried to build my PC and when I was trying to screw the Motherboard into the case, I accidentally chipped off a piece of plastic with some copper inside under the M.2 socket. Is this a big deal? will my Motherboard still work? I have an X570 Asus Crosshair VIII Hero. Regards, Eduard
  14. Super, thank you so much guys for the helpful replies!
  15. Budget (including currency): 4000$/pc Country: CH Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming Other details Hi everyone, I'm building a brand new PC and I bought all the parts after I've done a lot of research on what to get. Basically, I went for a Zen 3 AMD CPU and the motherboard is a ASUS Crosshair X570 Hero but I understand that I would need to first update the BIOS before even installing the CPU? I tried to research this online but the nice folks at ASUS didn't specify if I can update the BIOS without a CPU installed on the motherboard. Does an
