    Question Disable 2 (of 6) Cores in Ryzen 2600x - OK?

    Hi, A novice question here. I have a particular game where its confirmed that for my CPU running 6 cores creates CTD, but 4 does not (or 8). Can I create any permanent issues using AMD Ryzen Master to disable 2 of the 6 cores, and giving the aforementioned solution a try?

I'm still on a budget, however, and all of the i5s I saw were 6 cores, which I wasn't sure was enough to get rid of the stuttering...
