Hello, I have recently built a new PC with these components:
CPU: Ryzen 7 2700x (3.70ghz 1.0V)
GPU: GTX 980 Reference
RAM: 2x4gb Crucial cl15 (cl16 is the fastest latency that these modules can run on) + 1x8gb Kingston Hyperx Fury cl15 (can run on cl15)
MB: Asus Rog Strix X570-E Gaming
Storage is irrelevant heres I guess.
So I have installed the CPU with its stock cooler with its stock thermal paste, everything worked fine.
But sometimes I get an error showing "56", but on the motherboard I have the VGA led lit up white.
So im confused if the error code 56 relates to "Invalid CPU Type or Speed" than why do I get a VGA error as well?
I also have a little hole on the CPU's surface next to the triangle is this normal?
And the CPU bottom looks like it got severely thermal pasted, but im not sure if I got the CPU like this or I did it by accident.
And the PC boots fine without any kind of errors if I reset the PC, this problem only happens a few times but the PC did never shut down.
Maybe 2 out of 20 times happens this, but it is still annoying cause I may have a faulty chip right?
I have reseated the GPU and the CPU already if you about to ask this.
Any help is appreciated!
