        I want to buy a new CPU, but that means a new mobo + ddr5 ram too. Either you have to go for the 6 ghz Intel, or a high end multi core amd. My 3070 is bottlenecked by my older Amd and mobo.

          Only if you absolutely desire top end performance. For the majority the 12100F/12400F and 13th gen equivalents are so fucking good price/performance wise it's hard to recommend anything else when taking budget into account. The entire 7000 stack from amd is an utter scam once you include motherboard/ram and it feels bad buying into a 5 year old platform if you go with 5000, which in the budget section doesn't compete on price/perf.

      the funny thing is there's a 1000% higher chance of parts just randomly breaking down than you accidentally breaking something. putting a PC together is very easy.

      it's just that PC parts, no matter how expensive, are shoddily made to save on costs and they are extremely prone to just randomly dying one day.

        It’s so true. DLSS is the biggest fuckup I’ve ever seen. It’s intended to prolong the lifespan of these GPU’s so you can upscale your shitty ports from 800p for better FPS.

        Nah, the only things I have left are screws used for a different model processor

        What about lights? Is there a strip of LEDs on the thing lighting up when you power it? Go have a close look. They will mark what the issue is. That's what most mobos do these days. I don't have any beeping either, because I don't want, or need it.

        Dunno, I put my old parts back together so I have a PC to use so can't check now, I'm gonna check tomorrow with the speaker thing

          Next time you turn it on, pay attention to the board. Some lights will likely go on. They are marked for various parts. There will be one for the CPU/GPU, etc.

            Fans start spinning and stuff so the GPU and processor seems to work (or at least the fans) but the screens won't turn on (HDMI no signal) and nothing boots, not even BIOS weirdly enough but yeah I'll try watching for lights tomorrow, thanks

              Good luck, bro. But don't worry too hard, PC parts are surprisingly durable. In truth, it honestly just sounds like you have some of the headers connected wrong. The lights/beep will point toward which part isn't initialising and stopping bootup. Backtrack and double check everything. You'll be fine.

                I was troubleshooting with my brother (he's more computer savvy but we were just facetiming so he had a hard time seeing stuff) but we tried everything, triplechecked that everything was connected, connecting HDMI straight to MOBO instead of the GPU, unplugging all non-OS drives, removing one stick of RAM at a time, trying different sockets for the RAM etc, running it entirely without RAM, nothing worked. Hopefully it's just something really really stupid that we both missed but yeah I'll see tomorrow

          Sounds like the BIOS on the board is too old, if it has flashback you can flash a newer one without having a CPU installed, if not you'll have to get an Alder Lake processor (can be anything that's on the CPU Support list with bios version of all) and flash it using that.
          That said I'd return the board, it's a terrible match for an unlocked i5 - looks like a 6 + 2 (probably doubled too) VRM with no cooling, it's a firehazard.
          These kinds of mobos are only really good for office PCs.
          Get this (or the Bazooka, it's the same board with a different color scheme). Cheap, but still good quality.

              Because it's an H610 Alder Lake mobo. You bought it right around when Raptor Lake came out, assuming it sat in a warehouse for a couple months it still has an old BIOS that doesn't detect the new processors.
              Either way it's a terrible motherboard and I would urge you to replace it with at least some semi-decent B660 board.

                Would you rather have perfectly good motherboards be out of date every single time a new generation of CPU / Socket is released?
                If you had used a site like PC part picker it would have been abundantly clear that you would need to update the bios through flashback or by using an older CPU. I believe it's in the best interest of the seller to inform the buyer of this so they can charge 10 bucks or whatever (optionally) to do it for you, but that's up to them I guess.

                My brother was helping me pick out the parts, I assumed he'd know about stuff like that but I guess we were too focused on finding a MOBO that would fit in my old chassi and a processor that would fit the MOBO. Unfortunately I don't think I can get my money back now but I'll ask him and look into getting a new one.

    I already did recently. One of the components went faulty (after only 3 days!) and it was a mission to figure out which part because the computer would *occasionally* be able to turn on and I didn't have old parts to swap out and test with. Part of the devil's advocate in me says that I would have been better off with a pre-tested + full warranty pre-built. I'm better off now financially, but you have to account for the time and stress I went through trying to get it to work / figure out what was wrong with it, plus the process of RMA is a bit different in my country. It's hard to put a price on those things.
