Re: New system

Have you tried removing your storage drives/optical drives and clearing the CMOS? The lighting control should work without the OS drive on there. If that doesn't work then I'd recover the UEFI with Q-Flash. If you need to force the board to use the backup BIOS you can always manually do that - http:...

Re: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX Processor Review

I think it was the heatsinks on the motherboard (VRM), but when you manually turn off the power regulation and overclock the 2990WX... Sutff starts popping and making all sorts of fun noises. Never ever had that happen. I've had PSUs scream under heavy load, but never pops from the board.
