Ok.. So I am trying to build a new rig, 9900k on a gigabyte aorus pro wifi with a 2080 video card.. got most of the stuff last week but the mobo was doa.. granted I did install everything and had the cpu installed but the board wouldnt fire.. so I got amazon to ship me out a new one which showed up monday. so I swap all the crap out and get everything setup and power it on and it doesnt even detect a card in the slot.. same with slot 2.. slot 3 it will work but only at pcie x4. So.. while possible, but probably pretty rare, think I got 2 back to back crap boards? or do you think maybe the cpu might of been damaged by the first doa mobo not working, and those pcie lanes aren't working because the cpu is damaged in a place that is affecting the northbridge? I've been wrestling with this all day and I'm about to throw in the towel and just become a console gamer.. lol So any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
