Hello everyone!

I recently upgraded my older intel build and thought I'd try the Ryzen 5 2600 out. Unfortunately, I've been plagued with constant freezes, lock ups, and sometimes a BSOD. I was able to download all of the windows updates (took a few attempts because of the lock ups) and it seems to be running better. It still feels noticeably slower than my i5 4690 build that I upgraded from. I noticed that my EDC was at 99% a lot when viewed in AMD Ryzen Master. This was paired with the lagging cursor when opening basic files or sitting idle. Changing the power settings helped but didn't fix this. Specs and UserBenchmark below:

Asus X470 Prime Pro (Bios 4207)
Ryzen 5 2600
AMD RX 580 8gb (MSI Armour)
DeepCool Captain Gamer Storm 240ex AIO Cooler (white)
Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB Ram (2x8gb @ 3000mhz)
Teamlite 240gb SSD
Rosewill Glacier 600w PSU

UserBenchmarks: Game 59%, Desk 46%, Work 58%
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 - 58.8%
GPU: AMD RX 580 - 66.5%
SSD: TEAML5Lite3D240G 240GB - 82.6%
RAM: Corsair CMW16GX4M2C3000C15 2x8GB - 65.5%
MBD: Asus PRIME X470-PRO


Any help would be AMAZING! I'm quite frustrated after being so excited to get into Ryzen. Thank you!

UPDATE
I grabbed a spare Crucial 240gb SSD that I had and did a clean install of Windows 10. SIGNIFICANTLY better results almost instantly. I have now updated all drivers and have run the same userbenchmark test to zero issues. This is at stock levels with zero over clocking. Thanks and hopefully this helps anyone with similar issues down the road.

UserBenchmarks: Game 70%, Desk 72%, Work 68%
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 - 86.9%
GPU: AMD RX 580 - 71.7%
SSD: Crucial BX200 240GB - 71%
RAM: Corsair CMW16GX4M2C3000C15 2x8GB - 99.5%
MBD: Asus PRIME X470-PRO

Yes , the PSU is horrible quality and the SSD not better.

Poor Cheap SSD's often have similar reviews.

Cons: While playing games you will experienced some hang every 30-60 seconds. I have try multiple games and I have compare the both games on my other SSD Samsung EVO and this cheap SSD and the EVO was having no problem and as soon as I was playing on this SSD I have have some hang.

Interesting, thank you! Would those two components be the cause for my poor userbenchmark results?

I'm having the same exact issues. Your story is exactly the same as mine. I've tried 3 different Ssd's now and it's the same issue. In about to throw this out the window and go back to Intel, beyond frustrating swaping every single component multiple times.

Already it looks lik your ram modules are not installed properly as they are running at half the frequency they should. They should be installed in alternate slots on the mother board, not side by side. I would try to correct that and see if it fix your problem before trying anything else.
