A friend gave me his old Ryzen 3700X to use (as an upgrade from my 1600), but unfortunately it looks like it won't work for me :(

Updated the BIOS using my current CPU, installed the new CPU and all I get is fans and the CPU error light. I've put the 1600 back in and taken the chance to delete some old entries (Windows) in my EFI partition.


The Ryzen 3700X works perfectly in my partner's PC, so I guess she gets the upgrade instead!
