    Terminilogy behind "cheaper"?

    Someone else would have suggested a different CPU upgrade, and he said the 1600 was cheaper than that suggestion - not the CPU he currently has

    Fanless X570 motherboards?

    this was removed and blocked with AGESA updates, it was trialled and found flawed so it was removed again. PCI-E 4.0 is only on x570 until new boards are released.

    thermal paste, compound, TIM, lots of names for the same thing its goop that transfers heat from the CPU to the heatsink

    I went by your system specs, and assumed you were talking about the same ram. didnt check slot count either, my mistake there.

    What's the fastest storage in your PC?

    this survey disagrees with you. In the wild SATA is the clear winner, but in enthusiast areas NVME is pretty much mandatory when you upgrade

    MSI B450M Pro M2 boot problems

    your stability issues are due to running 4 sticks of ram on ryzen, you dont specify what RAM but if its corsair LPX its well known as a problem for ryzen with just two sticks, let alone four.

    Thank consoles and their weak CPU's, audio and video files had to be uncompressed to save performance
