The CPU after 5 days had died. Even before it died my earlier post suggests that it was overwhelmingly under preforming and getting beaten out by my old i5 5490. Is this a sign of me receiving a defective processor? Ive tested all other components other than my mob, ram, and cpu. I think it is my processor as my mob powers my gpu, the fan headers receive power, and the rgb comes on. I doubt that the 2 ram sticks failed on my simultaneously and ive tried them separate and in multiple spots. Furthermore my mobo has the ez debug leds and the cpu one lights up for around 3-4 seconds and then shuts off. the very odd thing is though that my display never turns on but also that my rgb keyboard turns on for a split second and then shuts back off. it does this normally with the i5 except that after it turns back on, not the case with the ryzen. I cant truly find out as I dont have a spare mobo, processor, or ram that supports ryzen. Any suggestions?
