4 pin of 20+4 pin unplugged cause blue screens?

Would the 4 pin part of the 20+4 pin motherboard connector being unplugged cause blue screens or would it just not boot? I was taking apart my new Ryzen build to rma the motherboard for excessive blue screens and found the 4 pin section unplugged but I'm not sure if it was that way or if it came loose while I was disconnecting stuff. I put it back together and I'm trying it out but the blue screens come at unpredictable times so I'm not sure if it's working.

  1. System wouldn't booth without it, so no.

  2. Possibly as the only AM4 20 pin I have seen is a OEM HP motherboard. You should retest after making sure the power supply is connected correctly.

  3. I tried it and it did boot without the 4 pin. Now everything is connected and I'm going to keep working on it tonight and see what happens. I'll know soon because it blue screens all the time.

  4. No luck. It is still blue screening so I have taken it out and packed it for RMA.
