    • Best answerThe Ryzen 5 2400G is more like the i7 8700, but presumably the motherboard you have is for the intel cpu chipsets and you would want to get a motherboard that is compatable with amd cpu chipsets like the MSI Pro Carbon X470 amd motherboard. But before you go out buying a board i would do some research and look up compatability, especially look at pros and cons such as intel cpu chipsets may have some features that amd chipsets dont, this is a pro con situation cause it goes both ways such as an amd cpu may have overclocking capabilities while intel may have higher clockspeeds pre-configured, but the newer amd chipsets have those clockspeed configurations unlocked so you can configure them to what you are comfortable with. The other thing to look at is pricing, amd cpu parts are very affordable, compared to intel, but intel cpu parts are very simplified, and are what lots of first time pc builders will go with, amd is for more of gamer enthusiast people. Weigh your options very carfully and Do Your Research First!

    • AI would not put a 2700x in that motherboard. OWM motherboards tend to be as basic as you can get.

  • Q: Will my B350M Bazooka motherboard be okay for this processor?  (2 Answers)

    • AYes, it will work just fine. I would direct/advise a slight upgrade to the Tomahawk B450 because it has better VRM and VRM cooling. This will allow the processor to hit it's speeds better and more efficiently.

  • Q: Is this cpu worth getting over the i7 9700k?  (12 Answers)

    By Gamer25 

    • AYes as far as multi tasking etc. You may see a slight advantage for an intel chipset in gaming environments, although this CPU is amazing for that as well and difference would be miniscule.

  • Q: Does this come with a heat sink?  (17 Answers)

    • AYes it does come with a heat sink. The wraith prism cooler is a all in one heat sink with air cooled properties. The factory cooling system is exceptional unless you want to overclock it then I recommend an aftermarket cooler.
