ASUS TUF B450M Plus Gaming - 3200G Issues
I built a living room rig for my parents but have had a pretty rough go. I'd like to get your opinions on whether my issues are a defective board, or a 3000 series compatibility issue.
CPU/GPU: Ryzen 3200G
MOBO:ASUS TUF B450M Gaming Plus (mATX)
RAM: 2x8gb Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200MHz
SSD: 500GB M.2 WD SN750 Black NVME SSD
PSU: Corsair CX550M
Cooler: Hyper 212 Evo
The board is on the latest available (184.108.40.206AB AGESA) bios (July 29th, 2019).
Everything seems fine until I stress test (Prime95 or OCCT). Even at stock the stress test will continue but then the following 3 things may/will happen:
1: I lose USB 2.0 Headers (Keyboard and mouse/ storage drives will stop working if plugged into these ports) but will work if switch them over to a USB 3.0 port*
2: I lose USB 3.0 Headers* (This only happens on the front panel, USB 3 off the motherboard has been solid so far)
3: I lose the Ethernet Jack (Says there is no cable connected after about 30 seconds of stress testing)
When any of these happens, I can stop the stress test but when I try to reboot, It will be stuck "Shutting Down" Forever and I have to do a hard reset. Everything works again upon reboot.
The memory passes memtest x86 from the bios at both the 2133 default and 3200 rated speeds.
SSD performs as advertised in benchmarks
I reinstalled windows because before I realized the cursor disappearing was USB related, I did a lot of hard resets...
I tried manual voltage/frequency/memory settings at several speeds (below and above stock).
Upgraded the cooler, Max load temps are 58C now (not really related)
What do you guys think?
I can't send them an unstable system as I live 4500km away and seem them once a year.
Yeah.....i still play WC3 TFT, so what....
