Would you agree is best to return this Dell?
 
@ubu

Since you were familiar the the problems I had faced here: https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/does-proxmox-8-work-on-modern-computers-yes.133195/ as well as that I had Pcie power fault.

So, since the power fault is on the four PCIe bridges, it seems to suggest a failing motherboard or the Pcie part of it. Since I recently bought this hardware and have til October 1, to return it, I am thinking to do just that and get another...better to be safe than sorry.

Would you say my plan makes sense, especially after the experience in the above thread?
 
I REALLY cannot detect a Hardware faillure on your board remotly, sorry, chrystal Ball fell down ;)
It was just someting that was strange in your log, it could be harmless, could be a defect
