I need to upgrade my 3700x/B450 combo to 13900K/B760. The PROBLEM is that I've got +300 games installed and +200 programs, 50% of which are essential for my work and have config files/templates/presets which would take months to track, something that I don't have. Reinstalling all the games and programs is literally impossible for me, despite me having most of the setup files and some config files backed up. Is there a way to upgrade without reinstalling Windows or at least without CLEAN-destroy-my-soul-nuclear-apocalypse reinstalling? I remember trying to upgrade from b450 to b550 with the same CPU - it got so bad I never saw the light of Windows booting, so it has been on the shelf for a year now. From reading online I understand that the results won't be smooth, but I'd rather deal with consequences (how bad could it get by the way?).
