Compatibility question, ryzen gen 1 to 2 serries

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I've got a boot drive from a Windows system with a ryzen 1700 as it's cpu and it was running a 580 for graphics. I'm currently looking into building a low budget computer and I want to use a ryzen 2600 as it's cpu and graphics untill I can afford to upgrade. I'm wondering if you guys see any problem with using that old boot drive without being able to get onto it and update drivers or anything like that. If I don't have to buy a new boot drive it will save me some money.

You can change CPU on the same platform (ryzen) without reinstall the OS.

For GPU, usually you will endup using windows default drivers, but if there's any problem, you can boot to safe mode and install a new driver.

Ryzen 5 2600 doesnt have GPU, so there won't be any display output (board display outs don't work if there's no iGPU in the CPU) even if the rest of the system works.

 

If say you get a GPU of some sort (maybe a cheap HD5450, whatever) then you can use that boot drive. However you should definitely reinstall the OS (of which it will prompt you to wipe the drive). Forget keeping Windows activation, as long as you change the board, the license will be gone even if you don't wipe it.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

no. you can continue using that OS and call MS to reset the activation for changing motherboard. no need to reinstall if not needed.

though a fresh install is recommended.
