Specs
Asus strix b450 f gaming and b450 tomahawk (motherboards) x2 tested
Vengeance LPX 3000hz 2 x 8gb
Ryzen 5 2600
1070ti
Be quiet 600w psu silver +

Issue
So these are new parts apart from psu and gfx card, the problem is installing windows via usb(freezing on installation pages before even selecting a drive) or booting windows, I can only successfully do this if the cpu is slightly oc’d from stock.

Does anyone think the cpu could be faulty, I thought it was the MB so I bought a 2nd one but have same issue

Oh yeah I have, forgot to mention, but USB ports or keys are not the issue, I have used them to install windows on another build same day, only works when increasing vcore on cpu

Knew it was pointless coming here, I told you I already have. that’s a common sense thing to do I have also tried cd this had nothing to do with a usb stick I even went and bought a new one and used Rufus and windows media creation
