Thanks for your help muziqaz.

Though I eventually read about 1.6 > 2 > 4.6 as the advised update path on other forums, it was your post here which was the first.

Yo Yo Yo!

I just went from Ryzen 5 2-something to Ryzen 7 5900x.

I will add a little detail concerning the steps to follow, since I had to do the whole process twice in order for it to work and I hope you won't do the same mistake I did.

"1.60 to 2.00 to 4.60" is the way to go, but you need to upgrade to 4.60 BEFORE putting the 5000 series.

1. Upgrade your Ryzen 2000 series from 1.00 to 1.60, then from 1.60 to 2.00.
2. At this point, you can still use your PC. It will work fine.
3. Upgrade your Ryzen 2000 series from 2.00 to 4.60.
4. At this point, your PC and CPU can't talk to each other anymore. You will enter an endless boot if you try to use your PC so make sure you're all set.
5. Change the CPU from 2000 to 5000.
6. It works.

I thought I needed to do the 2.00 to 4.60 upgrade AFTER having changed the CPU, but when I tried that, I got an endless boot.

Man...I had to remove/install/remove/reinstall/re-remove/re-reinstall everything!

I wish I had known that you need to upgrade the BIOS (and temporary make your PC obsolete) BEFORE putting the new CPU in!

EDIT:

After three days of finding the performance underwhelming and temperature way hotter than expected. Also, all the wattage information was missing in Ryzen Master.

I read about people with the same issue and updating the BIOS (again) seemed to resolve the issue.

I thus updated the bios from 4.60 to 4.70.

Than things finally started making sense:
CPU temps went from 90 to 75 while gaming
GPU temps also decreased by 15 degrees.

So don't forget to update to 4.70!
