    While I tend to agree, that's why I've added him to my ignore list. Usually just leaves a few half posts behind, which are people actually argueing with him. Just don't click on "show ignored content" :D


    So are there any x570 in depth mainboard reviews out yet? Especially, ones from inside a case? So that we know how loud the chipset fan really is, and how often it kicks in?

    It's amazing how "Show Ignored Content" always disappoints and triggers me. Thank you for a kind reminder @fantaskarsef :)

    hmmm all those that claim that 9900k is the cpu for hard core gamers .... doesn't this mean that the new 5700xt is THE competitive gamer gpu if the anti-lag feature works ? after you lower everything to the lowest and you get 500 +++++ fps on cs:go and the short even if you compare it to a 2080ti the ms shaved from antilag the 10~ish msecond adds vastly better responsiveness than the extra fps ...
    So here is my question ! All those hardcore competitive gamers that are here praising the 9900k's gaming performance ... why are not on the 5700xt thread praising the 5700xt for the most hardcore competitive gamer feature of 2019 ? i wonder ! :p

    ((assuming it works as advertised i have no idea if it does ))

    This only in-depth one I can find: https://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cpu_mainboard/gigabyte_x570_aorus_master_review/1
    Not to keen on being an early x570 adopter, prefer to wait a while more till the boards are a bit mature.

    We finally got SSDs last year. I think they may have cheaped out on them though as several of them broke down (including mine) and had to be replaced. This was after months of begging for them of course. Also had to beg for more memory since 8 GB was simply not cutting it (I would spend a good chunk of the day waiting for things to load while the memory usage was pegged at 95%). What I want now are 1080p (or higher) monitors and an 8-core CPU - I'll probably finally get them when Lisa Su takes the stage to present the new 32-core Ryzen 5000 series. :p

    Our work notebooks are OK for what we do. Intel's 4C/8T are not strong, but I do software development. M.2 does the job for responsiveness. But I would appreciate 3rd screen. Having 4 virtual desktops each having both screens separate gets me only that far. All the work is done on servers anyway for me.
    (Only thing I dislike on latest X1 Yoga is that intel's CPU has HW bug in iGPU that causes hard freeze or failure to wake up around once every 14 days. Intel has always trouble with power management, my older '5th gen' mobile chips from intel had similar freezing issues requiring limiting max cstate as fix.)

    I'm hoping to snag a 3700X or a 3800X tonight, if there are any still in stock.

    I eventually bought an Asus B450M Tuf Gaming-Pro, and an EK waterblock for the CPU, and also got some universal VRM blocks from Watercool.de (60mm and 80mm).
    I got the B450M because it was mATX, and had two heatsinks on the VRM's, nearly all of the others had no heatsinks on the SoC VRM.
    Then i saw the VRM blocks, and got them anyway (After watching Buildzoids review of the board).

    After seeing TPU's test on a B350, i'm feeling a bit better with my purchase :)
    Not going to be doing any Raid, and have two M2 Nvme drives as well, one 500GB for boot drive in PCIe3 x4 and one 1TB PCIe3 x4 for the second slot (which is for games, and only x2 connector).
    Both Nvme drives have EK M2 aircoolers on them.

    I'm leaning towards the 3700X, mainly because I don't see a reason for the 3800X, they should both cap out at roughly the same clocks, and even with PBO2, it should be able to clock to the Max with all of the watercooling..(I hope).

    Got tired of waiting for Amazon and bought the 3900x through Newegg with a Strix X570-E. Was going to go with the Crosshair Hero but I hate that the word Hero is written on the side of it, I wouldn't be able to live with myself having to constantly see that.

    That is why I picked a case that the motherboards mounts horizontally like in the early days. This core x9 is one huge case though.

    My 3600X was just delivered. :D Time to see how this stacks up against my 2600X at 4.350mhz on an X470 Mb. Gunna install in next hour and post some comparison benches. Wish me luck with Silicon Lottery.

    Considering clock of your old chip, probably not so much better.

    Loving Ryzen 9 3900x with ASUS Crosshair Vlll Hero x570 (Wi-Fi) motherboard, everything is quicker and smoother including games and OS and audio quality.

    Update: Chipset fan is control in the bios unlike Gigabyte x570 Master.

    I am having issues with memory on my 3700x Asus Strix X470 iGaming ITX board with latest bios 2406. It will not take the xmp from my G.Skill 3200 B-Die F4-3200C14D-16GTZR.
    Locks up hard and have to clear cmos. Tried manual settings but no dice.
    Threw in a extra set of Corsair LPX 3000 and it fires up the profile just fine.
    I have used the G.Skill with at least a 2700x and 2600 with no issues in the same board.
    Hopefully it just needs some bois updates?

    Yep. As stated v2406.
    Seems to be a issue for some people. The bios on the older boards seems in even worse shape than the 570 boards.
    DRAM Voltage at the beginning of POST is always 1.200V which limits the max memory frequency. It's possible to work around by first booting with lower DRAM Frequency and higher voltage, then only increasing DRAM Frequency in steps without the board shutting down.
    After failing memory overclocking you get stuck at C5 POST code which never seems to recover. The only way to get back is to clear CMOS.
    As per elmor who created the thread.
