I am installing my ryzen 7 2700x CPU and I opened my computer and see that my aorus K5 x370 motherboard does not have a Golden Triangle On Any Corner to signify which way my CPU should go. I looked online and didn't find anyone else having this problem and in the pictures I also saw that there is no Golden Triangle. Which way does it go? I assume it goes so that the branding of the CPU and of the mobo read from the same side but I want to be sure before I brick my PC.

The golden triangle wont be on your motherboard socket, thats on the CPU. If motherboards rev is 1.0 (bottom left corner), then you should check page 4 and 9 of this manual: https://download.gigabyte.com/FileList/Manual/mb_manualga-ax370-gaming-k5_e.pdf (why do no one try the manuals first?)

Don't force the CPU down!!!!!
Got it, thank you, will notify you of
Yeah its a RTFM-type situation.
Look in the manual. The ryzen cpus normally go with their brand name sideways, so that the letters read upright from the Ram-side of the mobo.
I already got it, but thank you though.
