    [H]OT !!!! 5800X3D $279.65 Shipped , Newegg

    The difference from express 3 to 4 is almost unnoticeable except when bench marking. In some cases the difference is less than 1% unless you plan to put a 4090 on the system you likely won't notice.

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    Update - Resolved - PC won't boot - sticks at "Preparing automatic Repair" - Booting from Windows DVD doesn't even work

    When attempting to boot with 2 Dimms they were placed in 2nd and 4th slots from the cpu socket? Try all 4 memory modules one at a time in mem slot 2. What code is the debug led stuck at?

    What would cause case fans to be powered by the HDMI cable in the GPU

    That thing needs a blow job in a bad way. Seriously I've seen dust bridge circuits before and that thing is a dirtball. Outside and air compressor for the blowout.

    Why are current gen motherboards so expensive?

    Same here I always open bench test hardware so trouble shooting if necessary is far simpler.
