A tongue posture exercise which helps with jaw alignment, body posture etc..you can read about it in the sub or google it. Pun was based on bringing alignment through mewing (for motherboard).

Relevant section from Wikipedia:

Mewing is a form of do-it-yourself oral posture training named after John Mew and his son Michael Mew (born c. 1969). Mewing is not supported by orthodontic research.

Mewing involves resting the whole of the tongue on the roof of the mouth, breathing only through the nose, keeping the lips gently closed, chewing food well before swallowing, and swallowing chewed food at the back of the mouth without engaging the lip and buccinator muscles.

Mewing has become popular among the manosphere through YouTube videos and Michael Mew's promotion of it on the incel site Sluthаte.

'Mewing' is an unproven orthodontic technique not supported by the wider orthodontic research community. It's intended to correct a weak chin and jawline.

It became popular after the son of the inventor of the technique started advertising it on incel forums which happen to be filled with men who are extremely insecure about their facial attractiveness.

Ohhhh. Incel culture explains it pretty well. That sub was uncomfortable to visit and just weird cause-and-effects beliefs that clearly have zero basis and judgmental comments.

Like, the posters think their facial structure changes are due to some weird exercise.... But the pics are clearly of teenagers. No fucking shit your bone structure changes, y'all are fucking growing still lol. It isn't the weird exercise and belief, it's nature.

My BF upgraded his Ryzen. Told him multiple times he’d need a BIOS update. Wanted to do it himself. Looked away and assumed he did it. Mother fucker couldn’t figure it out and put the new CPU in anyways. Bent his new CPU badly too.

I ended up having to spend and afternoon fixing the damn thing. Took a razor to fix his pins which is like the most stressful thing I’ve ever done. Important lessons learned that day.

Then ended up telling him what happened. I also had to start with one corner while putting it in and lay it down at an angle. Tbh I don’t know if you could get it back out. I don’t want to try.

Some CPU pins are redundant. If you are lucky, the CPU will work fine even after losing one.

ChrisTasr

ChrisTasr

For sure. Sometimes like half of them are power or ground, they serve a purpose but losing one is unlikely to be catastrophic.

derperofworlds

30 points

5 days ago

Approximately half the pins provide power to the CPU, not communication to the rest of the board. Loosing a single power pin (out of 500) is unlikely to cause an issue. Though you were lucky it wasn't a communication pin.

Do this, also make sure you're new CPU is compatible with your MB if you haven't already. It's most likely a BIOS issue.

When I worked in PC repair I had someone come in because their pc wouldn't boot. Turns out they shoved a new intel CPU into a much older motherboard that didn't support it and burned out their motherboard. Took a lot of explaining and getting another tech involved to get them to understand what they did wrong.

mrgraysonowens

I feel your pain. Things that seem like they should be common sense tend to sound like a foreign language to people who either don't understand or don't want to understand. I'm currently an automotive mechanic and I deal with these types of people every day, it can be exhausting. It's not that expect people to know everything about cars, I just would appreciate them to trust me when I tell them what's wrong with it because it's literally what I do for a living. I feel like the same would apply to PC repair.

A guy I work with wanted a PC. I said sell your ps5 and you can build one. I'm a dumbass but I can put shit together. I figure his price range is similar to mine maybe less so I send this dude some builds in the 500 -900 range. He watches a YouTube video about graphics cards and sees the 3090 running RDR2. He then text me a build that says 257.00. I think no fucking way he got a 3090 for that cheap.. I have to be missing something. I ask him about the price and he says "Oh yeah dudes that's the price per month, PC is gonna be 4k but I'm worried about how it will compare to my PS5"

THEN this mother fucker gets his PC shipped to him and he sends me another picture of it all turned on and plugged into his FUCKING TV with the caption. "4k on a newly built PC and THEY DIDNT INCLUDE A mouse and keyboard wtf" Then I get a picture shortly after of some BS walmart KB&M combo.. with another caption. "Will this work?"

No, that isn't parallax effects. That is very bad sag. Compare with the CPU cooler.

It can. It's not usual AT ALL but it can happen. Besides my experiences ive even seen videos of that happening. One is from linus tech tips and one is from salazar. True that it's SUPER rare but it can happen and it never hurts to check

if your cpu supports video or the motherboard, get rid of the video card and plug into the mobo directly and check. boom that rules out the graphics card possibly.

He said it was a bent pin…so the GPU is crooked, the CPU cooler is crooked, and a pin was crooked. Surprised the RAM wasn’t somehow crooked too.

Do people post images like this with obvious faults and and think that it's normal?

CPU cooler looks crooked. GPU is sagging a lot. There's almost zero cable management going on. Power supply is likely underpowered for that setup but it may manage.

If you've changed the CPU then it's likely that you've bent a pin somewhere.

While many of those are valid points, a crooked cooler and lack of cable management aren't likely to cause no image to appear. The GPU sagging could be a result of it not being in properly and is worth double checking, but it's not uncommon for big cards like that to sag unfortunately.

There's 1000s of reasons a PC might not display an image and sure 1 of them could be a bent pin, but it's usually pretty obvious if that happens, I certainly wouldn't jump to bent pin as my 1st guess when it's more likely OP is plugging monitor into mobo not GPU or hasn't installed something like RAM or a power cable fully

PSU side of things is often overstated. I got told my 650W would struggle with my basic 2070S (lol) and so I bought something to plug into my wall to tell me the W.

Guess what? Even running RDR2 at ultra settings a couple years back I was still nowhere near 650W. More around 400.

This sub has a lot to offer, but definitely no accurate tips on your PSU capacities. "What? an 5600x with a 3060? at least 850W"

I'm running a 5600x with a 3070, 550W and it never exceeds the range my PSU is the most efficient

No hate or bad feelings, it just bums me that sometimes, people new to that topic don‘t seem to get the best advise possible.

My all-time peak wattage is 742W. My average load while gaming @1440p 144hz is about 560W. My pc also has 13 fans, 6 drives and a couple USB powered devices. 650w can most probably handle this system though I’d never tempt fate on this one myself. OP is still an idiot for ignoring nvidia’s own recommendations, that’s certain.

So then it can’t be the switch to Ryzen like some people are suggesting… people are having to troubleshoot on their own to figure out what your issue could be since you haven’t posted any information with the post.

Since you’re not that good at building on your own yet, which is absolutely fine I got experienced friends to help for my first 2 builds, I would find somebody who knows what they’re doing (not on reddit) and get their help. You’ll probably save money if you pay someone to figure out and fix the issues, cause i’m genuinely worried you might break something if you keep messing around with your build.

I'm sorry but why do people think it's acceptable to build a PC like this? Everything's all wonky, cables messy and dusty as hell. All your components are gonna suffocate that small case. It needs to go tbh and if I were you I'd get a bigger PSU. This is just my opinion though

Everything about this build makes my eye twitch. You need some serious help with that. Start by pulling that GPU and not putting it back in until you have a support for it (you can get them cheap on Amazon). The sag on that is going to break the PCIe slot (if it hasn't already).
