Question Visual glitching/tearing after installing new CPU

Dec 13, 2022
Hi there, I am encountering a graphical issue after installing a new cpu. Here are my computer specs before the upgrade

  1. ASUS TUF B450-PLUS GAMING Motherboard
  2. 2x8GB 3000mhz Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM
  3. AMD RX 6700 XT GPU
  4. Ryzen 5 2600 CPU
    1. New upgrade -> Ryzen 5 5600
The upgrade was switching to the Ryzen 5 5600. After installing it, there were visual tears/glitching on my screen

I know that the 5600 needed a BIOS update for compatability, so I am on the latest BIOS update. I update my graphics drivers, and everything is up to date there.

I noticed that my VRAM on my GPU is idling at ~1990mhz, which looks like it's on the high end.

It's not my monitor or cables because there is no glitching with the old CPU, and I just bought new hdmi and DP cables

The visual glitches only appear when booting up a video game, or a program that has high graphics usage. Why did this start happening after the new installation and why isn't it working?
