I see that. Move the ram back to the other two slots. 2nd and 4th from the CPU. Then clear CMOS. You'll have to reenable XMP in BIOS, but it's a basic troubleshooting step.

Some motherboards have a jumper you can use to do that. Do you know what motherboard you have? I see it's an Asus Pro series, but can't figure out which model of it. If you don't know motherboard model, knowing the CPU can at least get us close to finding which motherboard you have.

 

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

Why is the 5800x so hot?

I'm having a hard time finding which exact motherboard that is. Do you see a watch battery somewhere on the motherboard? We'll just reset CMOS like you don't have a jumper.

It'll look something like the one I circled here.

They all have one. It's probably just under your graphics card.

Found your motherboard.

Here's the battery. It also has a jumper to clear CMOS. Leave the GPU in.

 

Edit:

It's still slightly different than yours. Nevermind, but shows where the battery could be.

Ok that’s is the motherboard what should I do now 

 

I got excited. Yours is different, but you do still have a jumper.

Turn the power supply off. Unplug it from the wall. Use a screwdriver or something metal to touch these two pins together for about 20 seconds. The pins just have to have a connection. Once you have done that, plug the power supply back into the wall and turn the computer on.

Yes, I think. It's blurry, but you're in roughly the right spot.

Don't take it all the way off, but loosen the cooler a little bit.
