Could anyone update me on AM5 issues?

Sebto

I've been thinking about moving to AM5, particularly Ryzen 7800X3D on a B650 MB in the next few months. I've been seeing a ton of videos from 6-7 months ago about all the AM5 bug, exploding chips, unstable RAM etc etc. Particularly everyone is saying to stay away from Asus, but also some other manufacturers like Gigabyte, I think? So my question how is it looking today, what manufacturers to avoid, what manufacturers do you recommend? How are the BIOS today, should I update them when I get the MB? I'd be willing to do that if it means greater stability and my CPU not blowing up. Thanks.

Been on the platform since October last year, been probably the most stable new platform that I can remember. I bought smart, got the exact same hardware AMD sent to reviewers at the time and its been flawless this whole time, as to say nothing show stopping. I've since moved from a 7900x to a 7800x3D which was also painless.

 

I've updated my board probably 13 times since launch, each time little things get better but I never really had major problems to begin with. 

 

EXPO with my G.Skill DDR5-6000CL30 kit worked since day one and still great today, though now its got a bit of a custom tweak. I'd say anecdotally Asrock has kind of killed it with AM5, you don't here of much drama with their boards and they're all well built. Update the BIOS and get GOOD Hynix based RAM with EXPO and you're set up for the best possible experience.

I'll double down on G. Skill and add that Gigabyte has very solid B650 boards as well.

I have built 5 AM5 computer in the last year, 1x 7950X3D with ASUS X670E-E 3x 7800X3D with Asus B650E-F and 1x 7800X3D with ASUS X670E-E.
All of them have at least 6000Mhz CL32 memory or better.
Until the October BIOS Update all of them add memory stability issues.
Since that update they are all very stable.
The boot time is still trash though. Between 30 seconds and 1 minute before you even get a boot screen.

I highly recommend going with EXPO certified RAM from Corsair or the NEO Expo ram from GSkill.

The Model number for corsair end with Z## instead of C## for XMP kits.

I had to replace one kit of Corsair C kit because it was terribly unstable even after the october update.
