Like the title says im considering this upgrade on my gigabyte A320 mobo as my bios can update to take 3rd gen but I was wondering if this could cause instability? but it actually takes less TDP than my current 2600x and I could get a custom cooler to help keep it in check. Or you advise against this? Want to keep costs down and already oc'd my ram good and don't really want to mess with my windows and install a new mobo.

Thanks

I have the same mobo but with the Ryzen 5 2400g
Can I ask why you want to upgrade the CPU ?
I just find in 1440p games graphics take too long to render and its obviously my cpu thats not communicating with my RX 5700XT fast enough. Timespy exposed my cpu too and this free render program whos name I forget. I will probably wait for the november sales though.
