AMD Ryzen Upgrade

Recommended Posts

I’ve been running a 1600x for 3 years, and am looking for a drop in replacement. MOBO is the MSI Gaming Pro Carbon which as I understand it only supports up to Gen 2. Suggestions are appreciated.

MSI released that board with various chipsets (x370,x470,b450,x570 just to name a few on the AMD side they also make this model using intel chipsets) forward cpu compatibility depends on the chipset you currently have. Not knowing this its hard to suggest a compatible cpu.  If you go into the BIOS updates release notes you can find the supported CPUs for your motherboard and go from there.

Personally, I'd go for a 5600x and a cheap MSI motherboard.  Not sure where you are located, but in the UK this board would do the trick for £59:

I upgraded to my 5600x from a 3700x and the difference is night and day

It’s the B350, thank you.

Here's a list of previous generation AMD motherboards that MSI claims are qualified for Zen2 (AMD 3000 series) The one you mentioned appears to be on it.  It would be a very good idea to update the bios before changing out the CPU but it should work.
