    Posted: 04 Mar 2023 at 2:43am
Hi,
I have the following setup

B550m ITX
Ryzen 9 5900x
BIOS 1.10
RAM Hyperx Predator 3200MHZ
fractal design 450W PSU
MSI Geforce RTX 2060
Windows 11

I recently upgraded from Ryzen 5 3600 to the Ryzen 9 5900x and upgraded the bios to 1.10. I am now experiencing system instability issues. Bluetooth is extremely buggy with it dropping frequently.

Could the issue be bad RAM or CPU? It was fine before the upgrade.
Should I upgrade to a newer BIOS version like 1.8 (which I can't go back from)?

Thanks for the advice

I would open up a support ticket with ASRock about the issue:

They will know for sure what is happening, if it's a BIOS issue or you have a bad
CPU.

I don't see why you wouldn't update the BIOS, regardless of anything else.
I'm running R5-5600 on B550PG-ITX/ax with the latest L2.61, and so far, no issues. Maybe you really do need a better power supply, but maybe you don't. Just update the BIOS and if that fixes it, perfect! If not, dig deeper.

To toot my own horn, I only have RX 6600, but with Seasonic Prime PX-500. I cheap out of many things, but never on power supplies.
