I am building my unit from scratch and so far all I have is the MB, PS, CPU, and 64GB DDMR4. When I power it up (no monitor or input) the CPU Cooling Fan does not come on - so I assume either the fan is broken or my scratch needs something else to start the fan. The 'experts' at the hardware store tell me all I need is a graphics card - then the fan will run.
So I found my perfect card: Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT Eagle 8G Graphics Card, WINDFORCE 3X Cooling System, 8GB 128-bit GDDR6, GV-R66XTEAGLE-8GD Video Card. It (like the MB) is made by Gigabyte - but my specs say that the Ryzen 5 supports PCle 4.0 x16.
I need some really good 'gamer' expertise here. Does the RX 6600 XT Eagle comply with the PCle 4.0 x16 specification standard?
p.s. I have not got to the SSD or SATA drives yet.
