I'm currently speccing out a system for a friend of mine, and im giving him my old B450 Aorus Pro board. I thinking of choosing the Ryzen 5 1600 as the cpu as he is on a fairly tight budget, but on the CPU compatibility chart on the boards website it has two specific models of the cpu that it's compatible with; Ryzen 5 1600 (YD1600BBM6IAF) & Ryzen 5 1600 (YD1600BBM6IAE). Yet the one on Amazon that im looking at getting says: YD1600BBAEBOX.

I'm not sure if it will still be compatible, or if it will cause any issues. I can't find a cpu with the "compatible" serial number. Hope someone can shine some light on this for me!
 
its the same thing, one u find in pc prebuilts, second u can find in stores
YD1600BBM6IAE is an OEM/tray microprocessor
YD1600BBAEBOX is a boxed microprocessor with fan and heatsink
this one is ZEN 1

same goes for:
YD1600BBM6IAF/YD1600BBAFBOX
just this version is faster, its using ZEN+ (aka ryzen 2600 renamed to 1600 to meet high demand back than)

Ahh I see, I thought it would be something strange like that. I appreciate your help with checking that, thanks!
