Hello and a good day to everyone,
2months ago i bought Ryzen 7 3700x and MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk Motherboard. Had tons of BSOD and decided to send both to RMA. I got the results and my CPU was faulty so i got a new CPU. Pc works fine except there is 2 weird problems i'm having.
  1. When i turn XMP Profile on my pc won't boot and the CPU EZDEBUG light will stay on untill i reset CMOS (I can boot pc only on default settings).
  2. I get Memory Management BSOD everytime after a Windows update (shutting of the pc manually at windows login and opening will stop the BSOD). But it does happen again on a new Windows update.
Things i've done are:
  • Clean new Windows install
  • Update windows to the latest version
  • Download/Update all drivers and bios
  • Did memtest to see if something is wrong with my RAM but passed all test without an error.
I would like to remind i didn't update my bios yet to the beta version.
I'm stuck here trying to understand what is wrong. I have the feeling that my Motherboard is also faulty, but how can i make or get to know that it's faulty?
Pc setup:
  • MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk
  • Ryzen 7 3700x
  • ROG STRIX GTX 1060 6gb
  • Crucial mx300 525gb
  • WD Blue 1tb 7200rpm
  • Corsair rm650x
  • 3000mhz c15 2x8gb Corsair Vengeance LPX
  • Windows 10 Pro v2004 build19041.572
Edit: Default ram speed is 2133mhz and i'm trying to get to 3000mhz.

Patience is a virtue. I have seen similar problems early on with X570 but eventually the BIOS woes were cleaned up for the most part.

Did you had BSOD too by any chance or is the motherboard really faulty? I know that b550 is new but i just gotta know if it's a faulty hardware or just because it's a new motherboard in the systems.

Did you update the bios before you started getting issues or after? Also unrelated issue, did you update the firmware on that 1060?

I have BSOD since the day i bought it. Ram XMP Profile problem since the day i sent it to RMA.
How can i actually check if i downloaded/updated the firmware of the 1060? I think i've never done that in my life.
Edit: I would also like to mention that my pc hangs for 5-6 after booting but i'm using HDMI.

And interesting, it is likely the bios, have you tried an older bios like 7C91vA2?

Not sure if i should go back yet, maybe i should manually overclock it to 3000mhz?
Also the link you sent is about displayport and is something i don't use, should i still install it?
Yeah, it will fix issues with the card even if you only use hdmi atm. And you can try that if you want, i never use xmp now. Go up in small bumps leaving the voltages on auto unless you know what you are doing.

I did update the firmware, it seems i have never done it. I also had a Acer CB271H (also HDMI) who had black flickering moments the moment i bought this motherboard and cpu. Maybe i should try again and see if it will happen again.
I hoped you would've known how to manually overclock it, i have not knowledge about it.

Go in steps of 100 and see how you do. If you set it too high the board wont boot, should default back to basic. If not then do a cmos clear to get back into the bios. Make sure xmp stays off.

Usually a GTX 1060 does not need a new BIOS for it. The motherboard is far more complex and it does need a BIOS to start the CPU etc.

The Corsair website as a long list of AMD compatible RAM https://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=166631
CMK16GX4M2B3000C15 is what i have and it's listed in there, so it shouldn't be an problem at all. Still not possible to OC it.
Edit: I just saw that someone is also having the same problem and is not be able to overclock it.
