I am having troubles with a PC I have recently built. I would like to know if I can use an Athlon 5350 processor on this motherboard (B450M PRO-M2) only to test if the MB is deffective. I actually have an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 for this MB, but I am afraid it is deffective, because when I plug it into the MB the system shutsdown (as soon as I push down the CPU fixing lever). So, since I dont have another MB where to fit the Ryzen Procesor and test it I was thinking on doing this instead. Thanks in advance for your help.

Silly question I know, but you are doing this whilst the PC is unplugged right?

No, they are not compatible.

If you're having boot issues, see this guide first:

Thanks. I think I will have to find either a similar MB or someone who has a CPU compatible with this MB to finally find out which component I should send back for warranty replacement

BTW, Yes, I've followed all the steps from the link you shared. One of the two components should be faulty, hopefully not both since they are brand new. Thanks again
