Hello

i ordered nvme will deliver first and will install fresh windows 

i will work and play with 1600 until i got the cpu ryzen 7 3700x

 

When the cpu deliver to me what i have to do ?

i'm sure not need to reinstall windows and i build this PC myself but i never upgrade CPU to New Gen same Socket before

( i know about bios should update )

anything else ?

What i have to do before install Ryzen 7 3700x ?

what is your motherboard. you might want to consider if it can support 8 cores and 16 threads since not all boards are created equal in terms of power delivery.

I'd say most B450 boards should handle a 3700x, if i'm not wrong it pulls similar amount of power to 2600x? If he has an A320/B350 then that's an issue

Most B350 boards will also handle a stock 3700X too.
