    I had a drive failure due to a short on the PCB. With the PC being water cooled, a fitting leaked and dripped onto the PCB and shorted it out. Drive is dead.

    Again, thanks.

    Sounds logical. I will back off the CPU by 100mhz as well and give that a go next time. Something else I can try is having the vram same speed as well. Although my GPU core was...

    Thanks for the reply RedSector73. I found similar. HWBOT has a guide as well.

    One or two answered above. LOL

    3600mhz is as high as it will post right now. If a person ever managed to get the memory up to 4000mhz with that CPU, the timings would likely be so loose, the...

    Yes, those temps seem high for a custom loop. Even a cheap waterblock should yield lower temps. Sounds like you maybe forgot to apply TIM to the CPU prior to installing waterblock. Too much TIM? Or...

    I am going to step out on a limb to say TPM is little to do with security, but more to do with tracking PCs and usage. There is likely an unique identifier in each TPM chip. Coincidence that this is...

    I will venture to say it may be a weak IMC (Intergated Memory Controller) on the 5900X CPU.
