Are those gaming PC builds interchangeable as workstation pc's? I'm only asking because I need to build a work at home pc that can handle streaming with clients and have multiple programs open at any given time, and I can't find any video's of you doing a "work build" in some time. So I'm wondering if I can just pick a gaming pc build on move on.

Canucks did a video recently, addressing problems with riser cables and pcie 3/4, where multiple cables may and or may not work, tested with multiple cables from same manufacturer, where one cable works on this Mainboard with this graphics card, and on another MB same cable with same card doesn't.. This may be helpful

Optimum Tech just posted about the ITX motherboard and Ryzen 5600x no graphics either on the chip. Had to use a graphics card with gen 3 instead of gen 4 cause the Riser card was Gen 3. Weird. But I thought that the Ryzen 5000 series had no graphics on the chip unless I misunderstood your description on this video. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and Stay Safe!

I'm in that situation ,newegg Ontario, and it seems highly out of the normal operations....I'm worried about my stuff, and the staff keep telling me they have 2 weeks before it even begins shipping (plus the actual ship time)....... Seems messed up or no.......?

There is a known issue with pci 3 riser cables if you have a pci 4 motherboard and graphics card. You apparently have to uninstall the graphic drivers or use a pci 3 graphics card until you can lock the bios to pci 3 mode. Also a bequiet aio would work better because the pump isn't on the block but in the tube so if it does get worse that might be an option.

i know it would be a lot of work, but when you do the budget builds, including a set of benchmarks with an overall "pauls hardware system rating" would be sweet. with that kind of data, you could really have a comprehensive price to performance guide with your system builds.

Q-Flash will work with both memory and ram installed, you don’t have to remove them, and it also works with neither installed (as was the intent). The Q-Flash button will not work if ErP (ultra low power mode) is enabled in the BIOS. And the BIOS file must be named GIGABYTE.BIN and located on the root of the USB drive.

When it comes to video out issues, why don't I see anyone try to use the video out on the motherboard? If it is the Gen 3 vs Gen 4 riser cable issue they suspect, then doing so lets them make sure everything else is working right and change the BIOS without any teardown. The route I keep seeing people go seems overly complicated, unless I am missing something. Yes, if it is something else then a (partial) teardown is needed, but why do the work before you know you have to?

Great video.... Love the music.... Maybe partner up with a Canadian MNpostr for the give away, and dispatch the giveaway from their locale(That way I can get the system with little to no hassle...☺)..... Is it just me or does the 5000series seem to have a bunch of compatibility problems......I've seen a few issues with them already...... I just bought($600cdn)a 3900x, for Christmas, and I did so because of the lack of availability for the 5000's and the seemingly amount of issues with component compatibility..... I hope the issues get resolved as I'd like to eventually get one.... 🍻
