Can anyone maybe think what could be wrong with my brand new CPU Ryzen 7 5700G.
A mate sold me his old PC at a great price and left me with some room to upgrade so I bought this CPU(brand new from Syntech) and a 3070 at a damn great deal.
After alot of shit after updating the msi Tomahawk b450 MOBO got the CPU to work but then 2 days later mothing red lighr on MOBO just stays on solid leaving everything bricked. Sent the CPU back they said all is good retried it as they said I should with no luck put in different Ram it worked for one start up after a restart back to the same shit.
In my 5 Years in IT I have never seen a issue like this hope someone has.
(Previous CPU that woks 100% with the rest of the setup ia a 2nd Gem ryzen 5)
Also did check all parts in the PC should be compatible
Thanks

Have you updated the BIOS to support the 5700G?

curious- why would you buy a 5700G? It’s slower than the equivalent processors without iGPU (significantly less cache), and doesn’t have certain features (like PCIe 4.0) that the better processors in the lineup have (literally anything without a G except the 5500)

but dont forget he is using a B450 board, so no pcie 4.0 on the board.

if i knew about this when buying a new cpu for this motherboard, i would also get a 5700G, the only thing it lacks from the 5800X is the L3 cache, which is halved.

So in South Africa Prices is a bit messy still but my Supplier (I have a Software Dev Company) Told me Yo we have this at a ridicules cheap price and it just made sense to run for a year or 2 then do a full ddr5 setup

Yeah did do so before putting in the CPU while Old CPU was still in and then also tried with the bios flash button when it did not want to boot

That's unusual, is it a non-Beta BIOS that you updated to?

It's the MSI B450 Tomahawk just to be sure, right? There is a MSI B450 Tomahawk Max out there. 

 

Otherwise, that BIOS lines up with the supported BIOS for the 5700G.

Then the CPU should work in the motherboard now. When swapping CPUs and RAM, did you make sure to clear CMOS?

Yeah Cleared CMOS. The dumb part is once I put the gen 2 Ryzen in again boots up instantly

Hmm, when the 5700G is installed, have you tried removing the 3070 and booting it up?
