    Hey, so my current processor is an AMD a6 9500 wich in my opinion sucks. so i have decided to swap it with a Ryzen 7 1800x. They are both Am4 socket but im just a little sketched, because the ryzen 7 uses 95W, while my a6 uses 65w. Do i need to turn up the watt in booting menu before i apply the new cpu?

    does the (ammount of) MB chache also matter?

    No one could even begin to give you an answer until you post the exact motherboard you are using. Just because the socket is the same does NOT mean the board supports an 1800X. You do understand that the 1800X comes without a heatsink fan so you are going to have to purchase a new heatsink fan [unless you already have a high end one]

    BTW if you are using a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever, the ONLY one who can tell you if the cpu is supported is the mfg. Generally big box makers have no vested interest in you upgrading a system. They would much rather sell you a new system.
