    hey, I’m building my first pc and I have everything hooked up and the only thing keeping me from being an epic gamer is the fact that my motherboard (msi b450 gaming plus) isn’t detecting my cpu (ryzen 5 2600x) what do I do?

    If you followed ALL of the steps in that guide, you would already know the reason why your system is not completing POST. Do understand that the last part of the guide is to swap parts with known good units; ie motherboard, cpu, ram, pw supply, etc. OR to test each of your parts in a test or bench system.

    Common errors for new or inexperienced builders;
    1 The 8/12pin aux or cpu pw connector not plugged in
    2 Motherboard shorting to case due to incorrect placement of standoffs
    3 One or more parts not fully seated ie ram, video card, etc
    4 Cooler or hsf not installed correctly. More an intel issue than an amd issue since the amd type coolers are pretty much idiot proof
    5 Parts not compatible. Since we do not have a complete parts list, this is unknown.

    I was hoping crjdriver would jump in because he's one of the Ryzen experts here.
    You're in good hands now.
    Good luck.
