I love these videos because I had a power supply issue with the first pc I built and spent like 2 weeks trying to figure it out. During that time I was getting frustrated and even slightly depressed thinking I must be doing something wrong. Then I found your channel and saw you struggle with booting a handful of builds and it made me realize that this really is part of the process and this world. So while I get how you must be feeling during these times I want you to know that we really appreciate you documenting the process and sharing it with us all to let us know we aren’t alone. Thanks Kyle!

Try HDMI instead of Displayport. That might just do it. Jay's video from 12/23 details a similar experience on an AMD board.

Hey Kyle, was just gonna ask if you manually made the board use pci-e 4.0 with the riser? as the 3400g doesnt have 4.0 support and the 5000 series do. that could've been why the 5000 series chip weren't posting as if the riser and the motherboard were not communicating which standard to use properly.

Haven't finished the video yet, but I'd suggest using HDMI instead of Display Port until you update the GPU's drivers. The was the solution when I build a 5900x on a Asus x570 prime pro with an RTX 3080 while using a PCIE gen 4 riser.

I think customs complicates using a "private" carrier like UPS. I usually use good old USPS for international packages.

I noticed you were using a DisplayPort Cable out for this, it very well could have been a display cable communication issue as well, it's already fixed, but next time try HDMI and see if it still happens. I have seen it a few times where it just will not output post with the DisplayPort Cable on Ryzen with newer GPU's (Guessing it's a Gen 4 possible thing?) but I went through this same thing and it ended up just being a cable issue. I had a remote software installed and noticed it said the PC came online while I was in the middle of a hour long melt down of what went wrong, shutdown the PC swapped the cable and it booted up no problem. I have no idea why this happens.

I discovered that certain mobos require specific types of USB sticks to update the BIOS. My MAG Mortar for example requires a USB 2.0 drive that is less than 16GB and must be formatted in FAT. This is what annoys me about these manufacturers and they can't just dedicate a little more resources (and can speak English) to develop a proper BIOS update or Flashback interface. The only motherboard that had a sticking button on the shield (it was a ClearCMOS button) was an ASRock Steel Legend board.

I feel your pain. I built a pc a few months back. Got 10 Corsair fans in the case. 6 fans were all in sync together the other 4 weren’t. so I started messing with the cables to see that I connected everything correctly well I did something wrong in the process and my pc wouldn’t turn on I worked on the pc for about 14 hours trying to figure it out. I went to Best Buy got a new power supple I thought I had fried my psu it wasn’t that bought a new mother board it wasn’t the mother board. I disconnected everything in the pc and connected everything together finally turned on but couldn’t get it to post so I had to download a new bios and install windows all over. it was insanely frustrating not knowing what I did wrong.

I actually watched this entire video.. What an amazing adventure watching Kyle have a meltdown. We learned a valuable lesson, UPS and riser cables are the devil 😏

For the price that one pays for one of these boards, it would be nice if they included a usb stick in the box for flash back purposes.

The whole time I was yelling at my screen that it's the stupid riser cable. Super glad you got there man.

I had a Strix b550 gaming f wifi, and it was a nightmare to get the system started the first time. It's really not clear if the flashback is working unless you already know what the pattern looks like. Granted it was early on, and it took them months to get a stable BIOS.
