Clear cmos and reboot and it will get picked up. Happened on my b550m tuf gaming also.

@D1craig are you trying to clear the CMOS?

If so, you can do this by shorting the 2x CLRTC pins which are located in the area just to the right of the M.2 socket.

Yea I was. I did that last night and it wouldn't boot after wards. No signal it would say and was stuck on the boot led light.

Trying to find that battery was a nightmare. It is inside the i/o shroud wrapped in some black tape. I didnt want to destroy the tape so just put pc back together and held my metal on the clear cmos pins for a bit longer and hit the power button (while everything was unattached ofcourse) and then tried it and it got to the boot repair screen so I'll do that when I get home later. No time now.

I suppose I should invest in some air cooling parts for testing and setup purposes before I sort my loop out in future because no doubt this would have been alot easier without them pipes in the way lmao.

Some of your settings isn’t stable and causing hard crash which has affected the BT and wireless for some reason.

stress test your system make sure your opponents are stable individually etc.

What should I use to stress test things? I've been streaming and playing final fantasy 14 for 2 weeks now and that's the first time I've had anything happen. First time bluetooth disappeared was while setting it up and downloading games etc.

I've never used prime 95 and only really used unigene benchmarks for gpu. I've tried occt but I'm not sure I was using it correct.

Go to Tom’s hardware site and they have a very comprehensive list of tests you should do.

pick a couple from each list to test your parts.
