I haven't done this since the old days.... but it's possible to solder a new pin on the CPU.
Use a length of copper solid core "telephone wire", tin the end, and carefully solder the wire to the broken pin location.
Then cut the wire to match the height of the pins. You may want to use a wire...
You guys may want to see if the Gamers Nexus guy (dude with the hair) can look into this.
Maybe even send him a board that has the problem consistently (including any paperwork from GB saying it's fine).
He seems to have regular contact with some of the mobo makers.
Yep, there has been some sketchy stuff out there.
Still is I'm sure but the major brands know better for the most part.
Some of the bad PSUs out there just had power_good tied to 5v so it was always "good" even if it wasn't. lol
That's just crap engineering there.
That used to be a common problem many years ago even with a single hard drive connected.
It had to do with the PSU's large caps charging time and the inrush current of the total load.
The PSU would not assert the "Power Good" signal (pin 8 on the 24-pin connector) in the required time.
Agree with pulling the fans off the mobo.
I generally run the CPU fan(s) off the mobo, but all other case fans I power directly from the PSU.
You can get converter cables and splitter cables to give you enough fan power connections.
It's better not to run all of that fan power through the mobo...
The guys are right about memory speed (turn on XMP) and you also may want to try turning off all boost and lock the CPU speed at 4.2 Ghz as was mentioned (that's how I run my 3600X).
After turning off boost, you should see the CPU locked steady at 4.2 Ghz instead of the CPU speed bouncing around...
Not missing any point at all dude.
All I did was post a price and people go ape shit.
For those of you who don't have a MC nearby, too bad so sad.
Not my friggin' problem.
Move on and ignore it if it doesn't apply to you.
ETA: You guys are assuming my post was to shit on the OP...
Monster, they would not power any LEDs with the battery.
Power for the LED is coming from the 5v Stand By from the PSU.
Pull the AC plug and then do your thing with the battery.
You will not see anything lighting up without the AC plugged in.
