trying to make sense of the teir list and having trouble

 Share

Go to solution Solved by cretsiah,

so after talking to some other people, about the issues with the asus motherboard and looking for

- the best bang for buck

- stock availability

- plus my prefered requirements

 

i have gone and ordered

- 2 x Gigabyte B450 DS3H V2 motherboard $258

- 2 x 8gig Corsair vengeance 3600mhz 16gig $89

- 2 x 8gig Corsair Vengeance 3200mhz 16gig $87

- 1 x Cool Master MWE Gold V2 550watt psu $135

Total = $569

+ 3600 cpu already bought for$225

total = $794

 

this gives me 2 computers instead of 1 and i will be able to multi-play with my son and daughter again....

 

anyone else's thoughts

i currently have on order a ryzen 5 3600 cpu it was going to replace a ryzen 5 3400G

 

however the motherboard the 3400G is attached to appears to have issues when i try to add a seperate graphics card or upgrade windows 10 past version 2004...

 

  the ryzen5 3400G build is as follows:

- CPU Ryzen 5 3400G

- Motherboard Asus Prime B450 m-k

- ram 16gig @2666mhz ( ddr4 kingston 8gig x 2  )

- adata 800 SSD 500gig ( internal )

- seagate green 2TB ( internal )

- western digital 4TB USB

- psu 550watt ( unsure )

- archer T4 wifi card

 

so i am wondering what

- motherboard  with wifi built-in ( full atx size prefered )

- 16gig ram ( preferably 3200mhz )

- psu

i should put together for the ryzen 5 3600 cpu?

am on a tight budget though

 

preferences would be

- still able to install windows 7 (not essential but preferered )

- add an amd  RX570 8gig graphics card ( i already have this )

- add crucial P1 nvme 500gig drive ( i already have this )

 

 

current main system:

motherboard : AMD FX 8320

ram : 16Gig

OS : Linux Mint 20 xfce kernel 5.4.0-26

Video Card : RX 550 4 GIG

Monitor: BENQ 21 inch

 

Desperately needs an updated system :(

that together with your specs in your signature is *very* confusing .

 

however,  i think you shouldn't buy new hardware for the 3600 specifically.  just make sure you have the right BIOS then if it boots with new cpu install also chipset drivers. 

 

And *then* you can try updating windows normally. 

 

if that's still not working its probably an issue with your windows and you need a fresh install.

if you mean the AM3+ yeah it died .... currently sharing my sons computer which is the the ryzen 5 3400G build ...

 

but there are various games that keep choking on the ryzen 5 3400G ...... it may just be a bad / damaged motherboard....

windows 10 wont install on it with gpt / uefi mode, has to be installed using mbr and updates have to be disabled otherwise it goes into a boot-loop with graphics issues...

 

hence the request for a new motherboard and ram combo to go with the 3600   

current main system:

motherboard : AMD FX 8320

ram : 16Gig

OS : Linux Mint 20 xfce kernel 5.4.0-26

Video Card : RX 550 4 GIG

Monitor: BENQ 21 inch

hmm i see... i cant really give you recommendation for this specific case because i think it's unlikely a motherboard issue (if anything a bios issue yeah) and i don't know the answer for that, but im sure there are many people with 450 boards or similar that can update no issue and give you recommendations therfore.

 

 

but you know, i have to say,  there is an  error in your logic , you get a new cpu so you don't actually *know* if there will be issues,  you just think there will be (which is possible but unlikely)  you know. why not just try it out?

 

edit: actually,  b450 steel legend. people swear on this board and recommend it all the time (when r5 3600 was hip) so yeah that.

 

i still wouldn't do it without trying my old mobo with new cpu and BIOS, but its your money, and yes steel legend is it then i guess!

well the

- bios has been updated to the latest non beta ( the motherboard is supposed to be windows 11 ready )

-every time trying to update the chipset drivers for the cpu AND the motherboard before updating windows it crashes on windows updates

- every time trying to update windows before updating the chipset and motherboard drivers it goes into boot loop

- every time trying to update windows and not the chipset or motherboard drivers it goes into boot loop

- every time attempting windows updates locks and freezes the wifi adapter regardless of whether it is usb or pci version

- adding a 4gig gpu card ( doesnt have powerport attached ie uses only power from pci slot ) causes acpi errors ( didnt want to risk the 8 gig card which does require an extra power port plug )

given the above you really think i should risk putting the ryzen 5 3600 on that motherboard?

 

is the b550 steel legend more or less the same as the b450 version?

motherboard : AMD FX 8320

ram : 16Gig

yeah i get it there's an issue i was just saying id try a fresh install... its a common windows thing once the install is bugged updating will be hard to impossible (also updating to a new version ie 11 isn't really recommended) 

Anyway that's why i suggested  the b450 steel legend.

more or less, but the 450 is made for the 3000 cpu series,  the 550 is not, meaning there will likely be less issues on a b450 board.
