Without the BIOS flash, it kept blue-screening as soon as Windows would try to start up (but at different points, making it feel like a stability problem vs. any other problem).

    So if you do go Ryzen, make sure you have a USB drive with the motherboard's latest BIOS file on it, as well as any flashing utilities you would need.

    No it's just some of the Ryzen boards since this is sort of the first wave still. However, I do that with every new build I do just so things are up to date. I didn't know anything about computers when I started but I researched to learn and it's been very helpful. Overclocking is nice because you're basically extracting the cpu and gpu to it's full potential. I've done it on every CPU I've used. While it's different with every build, I specifically will use AMD FX-8320e processors for super budget builds. Stock vs. CPU OC I've seen as much as a 40% increase in FPS for certain games.

    As always I'm here to help in any way I can. Just ask.
