    Good day all,

    I hope you can help me. I have the following mother bord: asrock x470 fatal1ty gaming k4 link:https://www.asrock.com/MB/AMD/Fatal1ty X470 Gaming K4/index.asp

    I am currently running it in combination with a R7 3700x and some G.skill flair x 3200mhz.
    One of my friends want to buy my R7 3700x which gives me the option to upgrade to the R9 3900x. I see that the R9 3900x consumes 145 watt of power and I am worried that the VRM will not be able to supply sufficient power to the CPU?

    Can you please give me your thoughts on it? I have a 240mm AIO water cooler thus no stock fan blowing directly on VRM heat-sink. Above heat-sink I have two fans which could possibly cool them down.

    Thank you

    The board supports up to 3950x, it'll be fine.

    Thanks for the reply. I saw on the supported list but was hoping to receive a bit of feedback from someone with similar setup.

    I would check out what BIOS are released for the Asrock Motherboards.Asrock has skipped or been real slow on BIOS releases for X470.I do not own an Asrock motherboard ,so I do not know if it is good/bad/useable ETC.

    Here's the thing I've read that the 3950X REQUIRES the AGESA 1.0.0.4 code however ASRock is being stubborn with the X400 boards(my B450 included) There are beta BIOS's here:
    https://shop.jzelectronic.de/news.php?id=1574938860&sw=

    That should have what is needed to run the chip while waiting for ASRock to get off their rear.

    It would be nice if they had a beta BIOS page like MSI has instead of having to get them from a third party.
