memory – Is Motherboard needed?

I’m trying to build a stand alone Node. Do I need a motherboard if I have both a CPU & GPU? The following list:

  1. CPU – AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-core, 24-thread unlocked desktop processor with Wraith Prism LED Cooler
  2. GPU – MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Super 8GB GDRR6 256-Bit HDMI/DP Nvlink Tri-Frozr Turing Architecture Overclocked Graphics Card
  3. RAM – Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4-24000) C15 1.35V – Black
  4. Memory – Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB NVMe M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V7S1T0/AM) (Canada Version)

If motherboard needed I was thinking of getting ASUS ROG Strix X299-E Gaming II ATX Gaming Motherboard (Intel X299) LGA 2066, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), 2.5 GBS LAN, 8X DIMM Max. 256GB, USB 3.2 Gen 2, 8X SATA, 3X M.2, OLED and Aura Sync RGB

motherboard – Phanteks Eclipse p300 case fan not working

I’m coming to superuser today for a question about my case fan (case is Phanteks Eclipse p300). Long story short, it hasn’t been working since I built my PC.

The case fan came pre-installed and pre-connected to a little controller which controls the power button. It’s also where to power and HD LED cables start. This controller is connected to power through SATA cables from my power supply.

I’m new to computers, and this is my first build, so sorry if I didn’t provide enough information. I’m happy to answer any questions.

Other info:

  • SATA cable coming from controller is 12v
  • PSU is EVGA 80+ Bronze 450w

Thanks in advance!

motherboard – Connecting the case fan to power

Today was my first time building the PC from the scratch. There is only one thing left and it’s getting my case fans to spin. There are two case cables currently unplugged.

1st – it is two sided

2nd Cable

Unfortunately my pc case didn’t come with a manual (nor has one online) so I couldn’t look up what these cables are.

Where am I supposed to connect those and what’s their purpose (name)?

The motherboard is X570 Aorus Ultra

memory – CPU faulty or Motherboard?

My PC in my work Suddenly shut down and didn’t boot. We figured that either it’s the motherboard or the PSU. After checking the PSU is fine and changing the motherboard, the pc managed to boot (the fans started working), but nothing else, I wasn’t even able to get into the bios. The Fans started shutting down and then started again repeatedly without getting to bios. After removing one of the RAM sticks the PC managed to boot to bios so I figured one of the RAM sticks have been damaged with the old motherboard. We changed both RAM sticks with a working pair , and yet the problem persists. It seems like the PC manage to boot with one of the slots only. So my question is this:
Could it be the new motherboard that I got is faulty and one RAM slot doesn’t work? Or was it the CPU which got some kind of damage with the old motherboard that now it can’t run with two RAM slots?

The PC is pretty old, 4th generation intel processor with DDR3 RAM sticks.
