I can see you're running on a default JEDEC speed of 2133. Lets do this. Download and run this tool: https://download.cpuid.com/cpu-z/cpu-z_1.95-en.exe
Screenshot the mainboard, memory and SPD tabs. On the SPD tab, make sure you select a slot where memory is installed on the top left. Likely, 2 or 4.
Better to prove that's the issue first. I would load your XMP profile in your BIOS. Lets see if it'll POST at all, and if the problem worsens significantly under the XMP profile.
Yes, it's an alternative to memtest. If it worsens, pretty much confirms you've got a bad stick. Possible that it stabilizes under the added voltage and looser latency, despite the higher clockspeed. Unlikely, though. As it should be stable under the JEDEC profiles it'll default to.
In the BIOS go to the OC Tweaker tab and select the option that says "Load XMP". Set it to profile 1. Now it's possible if the memory is bad, it'll fail to POST at all under the XMP profile. Be prepared to clear CMOS to get back in.
It resets the settings in the BIOS. Also resets saved memory settings and timings. Clearing the CMOS will allow the system to boot and train as it did originally. if it's stuck on a bad memory configuration, this may be necessary. There will be a pinout on the bottom of the board, described in the manual. Usually labeled CLR_RTC, J_BAT or CLR_CMOS. Your manual will have instructions on the location and how to proceed.
We don't sell replacement panels directly that I'm aware of. I would have to refer you to Corsair for a replacement part on that.
No, the jumper cap just creates a short between the two pins. Anything conductive will do. I usually use a small flathead screwdriver.
What you're doing here is removing power so the CMOS will clear. It's volatile, meaning it requires power to retain the data stored, if you remove power, it clears. You can do the same by removing the CMOS battery for 30 seconds. It's the CR2132 watch battery on the board.
So you would power the system off, disconnect power, make sure it drains, then short the CLR_RTC header.
What he meant is when you do this, you usually see your PSU fan start to spin, LEDs may start to turn on, but then shut off. Showing the power has drained from the system.
And based off his message, I believe Mike was asking you to set it to Profile 1 - Auto to see if the RAM will work with XMP enabled, which is why you want to be ready to clear CMOS if this causes it not to POST.
