Chatted with Amazon, and they surprisingly agreed to take the board back for a refund! Guess it's time to shop for a new one. I will likely avoid motherboards with built-in wifi/bt at this point to save myself any future hassles.

On a related note, do you know if I will need to reapply thermal paste or anything when moving my CPU to a new motherboard? I think there was some preapplied on the heatsink when I bought the CPU (Ryzen 3600) ... or maybe there wasn't. Can't be sure lol.

yes the thermal paste is pre applied
and only just good enough the first fitting
grab some thermal paste when you order your other parts
mx4 is popular and cheapish
im sure you might get a 100 replies now saying other paste is better but a stock 3600 and heatsink it dosnt really matter as long as its a thermal paste

Thanks - so change of plans, I ended up working out a deal with Amazon where they just refunded me half the cost of the MB - around $40 - and I'm going to continue using it. Since literally everything else on the board is working fine, I don't want to go through the hassle of ordering a new one especially since B450's seem to not be in stock very much right now and the new B550's or X570's are overkill for my build. Not to mention almost twice the cost. Gonna get a $10 USB bluetooth adapter and call it a day.

Pleasantly surprised with Amazon's customer service on this tbh.
