Finally upgraded to the new Ryzen 5 3600 from a 1600. Updated the BIOS and got it working. Had to screw the fan all in because the CPU fan wouldn't spin, and it worked for a little until it just stopped spinning again. Monitor is black and I can't force it off with power buttin
VGA DRAM and CPU have ezdebug leds. Have a B350 Tomahawk mobo.
 
"Had to screw the fan all in because the CPU fan wouldn't spin, "

Not quite sure what this means...in light of the 'got it working'

I'll ask questions instead....

Did the new 3600 HSF assembly ever spin correctly?

Did you ever get a POST display with the new CPU/sink/fan?

(Naturally, with a cpu fan not spinning , one instantly worries over mainboard health and/or PSU)
