B450 motherboard and 3600X CPU.

Now I’ve worked out my power cables, it fires up all fans going, lights etc humms nicely.

However I get not output to me screen. I’ve not yet installed my GPU but shouldn’t need to.

Any troubleshooting ideas?

Ryzen 3600X doesn't have integrated graphics, so you'll need that GPU.

 

 

 

Might be best to wait till this is confirmed by someone who knows what they're talking about...

The 3600X doesn't have an inbuilt GPU so even if your motherboard has video outputs they can't be used.

 

 

 

You will need to install a separate GPU.

 

 

 

Edit: beaten by rb99 :) and yes just been through this with a 3600X build.

how many threads do you need?

 

does your motherboard support the 3000 series chips? there arent many that were shipping with the correct bios, you will likely need a 2000 series chip to update the firmware

 

what is the exact version of your motherboard, does it mention the bios version on the box or in the documentation?

Okay, added in the GPU. Fans spinning. Outcome no different. Still no input into the monitor.

As per Jase2985, some b450 boards need the bios updated to take 3000 series, so you’ll need a 2000 series cpu to update. What’s the exact mobo you’re using?

So frustrated tonight, I’m not even thinking. RAM was in the wrong slots. Time for bed, I’ll pick this up tomorrow I think.

I recently got a Ryzen 3600 with an Asus Prime board and had same issue - got the board BIOS flashed to more recent BIOS, and all running now. You'll require an earlier CPU to do it or take it to a PC store (Playtech/PBtech etc) and they can do it for a fee. Playtech were a lot cheaper than PBTech, but obviously depends where you're located.

If i brought it inshore and they didnt mention this i would be expecting them to fix it for nothing

Most likely, but I didn't buy it from them - got parts through diff suppliers, was easier to just pay one small fee to someone local and get it all going.

 

Was given an earlier CPU by a GZ member to try, but unfortunately that had bent pins that were beyond repair.
