Hello all, I was building my gaming pc with a ryzen 2700 and 3200mhz ram and it lit up both ez debug lights for ram and cpu. I have no idea what the bios is on the motherboard so my question is what is the base cpu and ram speed compatible for a b350m bazooka? I know that it will probably work with any 1st gen ryzen but would an older cheaper athlon chip work out of the box so i can update the bios?

Thanks in advance 😄

You should just go to a computer store and update your BIOS there... should be easier than buying a first gen Ryzen chip.

If you want to buy a chip to update, the Athlon X4 940, 950,970 will be supported out of the box by your B350M Bazooka.

You're good on 3200 MHz memory... I wouldn't go higher for Zen+(ryzen 2000).

Should be fine... your RAM will run at 2133 MHz initially, by enabling XMP you'll reach the rated 3200 MHz... the DRAM debug light is most likely related to the same thing(BIOS update).
But you need ram for the motherboatd to boot correct? So do i need to buy different ram to make it able to boot?

Your memory should work fine(unless it's faulty from the start)... the only way to find that out is only after the BIOS update.

For now the BIOS update is your number 1 priority... after that if the system doesn't POST, further troubleshooting might be required.

Let us know about the situation after the update.

Ah alright. I'm just a little nervous about why the debug led for dram would be on if it is compatible. Maybe getting a new cpu will fix both debug leds
