I just replaced my Ryzen 3 2200g for a Ryzen 5 3600 and my RAM for a higher speed one (I did bios update so it is compatible) but on boot or restart, the CPU led on my motherboard (MSI gaming pro carbon AC) flashes red for a second but the system starts up fine and runs normally with the LED off, anyone know why?
Could it be that it’s because my motherboard didn’t originally support the AMD 3000 series, now that I’ve done the update it does, but my hardware doesn’t realise that on startup?

Just some info....I've had the same thing happen with a different MB and CPU and everything was fine and stayed fine.
I think it might be normal on some motherboards for it to flash.
I think as long as it doesn't stay on....you are fine.
