My x99 5820k rig is now taking a well deserved rest inside the box of its replacement motherboard: Asus TUF Gaming x570-Plus. Took me hours to dismantle the rig, clean it all up, salvage what i could, and start fresh for this 5900X build. There were dust nests that built up since 2015 hidden around the PSU and behind the motherboard, in the weird angles of the case. First couple of surprises : the AM4 mounting bracket - Fingers crossed it'll hold ! The retention doesn't have any lock system that's a bit scary. RAM compatibility : upgrade your BIOS ! I made the mistake of activating the intended higher performance profile for my Crucial Ballistix 3600MHz and computer wouldn't even start anymore, had to clear BIOS. After updating to latest (beta) version my ram worked flawlessly. Barely run anything yet, aside from TimeSpy physic and CPU-z Bench. Gonna take some time to get used to the whole vocabulary, the new tools for monitoring (any recommendations?), how overclocking works. Temps are slightly higher than i anticipated, roughly 5-10°C more than my 5820K overclocked, for twice the amount of cores and 2.5 times the multi-threaded performance. Sidenote, this is also my first ASUS motherboard and i did miss the Asrock "2 failed boot = BIOS reset" when my RAM timings didn't work and i had to shunt two pins with a screwdriver. Gonna make iterating on RAM timings painful (doubt i'll do it in any near future).
