Not to take away from the "suffering" some people are going through with any issues they are having with their systems, but from reading around on the Internets its becoming very difficult to distinguish those who are having issues from those that are simply shilling in the AMD threads, pretending to be users with AMD CPUs, for reasons only they know of.

I noticed a pattern, where you will have say two to three people from the same country who either register new accounts or used old accounts with either no posts or one/two posts and post back to back posts about the "issues" they are having with their CPU.

Ive seen this three times and from three different countries, which I found a bit strange

I've seen this issue with my Corsair mouse with both my 3800X and the 5800X, however since that device can be used both wired and wireless hasn't really been a issue for me. With the latest bios and me switching around what was connected to what port due to replacing a case fan I've not seen it since. I've been on x570 since Dec 2019 and no other issues.

aigomorla, have not had one problem with my 5900x on a MSI X570 Unify and my 3900x on a Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite.
I have 5900X, previously 3900X(T) on a MSI X570 Unify. Same as you, no problems with USB, but I've just recently purchased a cheap prebuilt PC based on Giga A520 board and Ryzen 4350Pro where USB 2.0 ports are virtually unusable. Hard to tell if that's board / BIOS or CPU at fault though.

Gigabyte boards are the ones most affected by the USB issue.

Disabling C-States helps, but doesn’t eliminate the issue.

The failure rate BS is a smear job.

The usb issue... I keep reading about it but have not experienced this. Then again I don't use usb 2.0 and the issue apparently affects usb 2.0.

Only Europe? They are virtual unobtanium in the US also, afaict. I do see them on ebay.de if you want to pay 980+ euros.
Not really. If you live in the US and are near a Microcenter there will be plenty of 5600X and 5800X CPUs. I just bought mine from a store in NY and they've had over 30 pieces in stock. I've checked other stores in the area and they have the same "25+" numbers in stock.

The closest Microcenter to me doesn't have any. Stories about Microcenter availability are afaict only valid for a small percentage of people. Also I looked at the 3 NY Microcenters and could not verify your claim.
I stand by my statement.

Strange. I'm on an Aorus A520(latest stable BIOS) with 4700G and I initially had USB issues only when all my peripherals were plugged into the row of USB2.0 ports together. I moved my mouse to one of the 3.0 ports and the issue disappeared. Initially Gigabyte support said a BIOS update would fix it but I havent kept up with it since my issue was 'resolved'

I've tried every port, same problem. If I attached the mouse and keyboard to my monitor USB hub, they worked fine.
