    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    Anyone else update to the latest 1.51 with Agesa 1.1.0.0 and setting a manual vCore? Since upgrading if I set a manual vcore to say Override of 1.3v, it boots to 1.3v but under all core load like Cinebench the voltage drops to 1.1ish and clocks plummet to 3.5Ghz or so. If I set an Offset of...

    X570 Tomahawk 2.5GBE NIC issues

    Yep, got their latest drivers. Still wish it had a plain ole Intel Gigabit. This is a good example of bs marketing bringing down a product in quality, not up. If they stayed with a solid Intel NIC the average Joe would look at the mobo and the competitors and think it's a downgrade despite...

    MSI X570 Tomahawk new 1.3 BIOS update no good.... Idle shutdown

    AMD and XMP don't fare well together. Just download Ryzen Dram Calculator and use that to get your values and you'll be good to go.

    X570 Tomahawk 2.5GBE NIC issues

    IMO if at all possible I'd skip the 2.5GBE and just go plain old reliable Intel Gigabit. Unless you have a switch and server and IO on the server capable of the higher speeds its worthless and only causes issues like the one I ran into above.

    X570 Tomahawk 2.5GBE NIC issues

    Not old, but a simple unmanaged Cisco. It did negotiate to 1000 baseT.

    X570 Tomahawk 2.5GBE NIC issues

    Yep, I bypassed and went though a Dlink DGS-1100 and it works fine. I replaced the Cisco with another Dlink and all is fine. I guess whatever Realtek is doing is not compatible with all switches...

    Disregard. Found out my Cisco switch and this Realtek don't play nice. Still not thrilled with having a Realtek NIC for the first time in 20 years.

    X570 Tomahawk 2.5GBE NIC issues

    I got this system up and running a week or so ago and this is my only issue. I get full download speeds but upload speed is terrible. I have Google Fiber and also transfer large files across my LAN and both show really bad upload speeds, in the less than 100 Megabit range. Download speeds are...

    Long time Intel user converted. Looking for a board for the new gpus and cpus

    Every generation brings some changes in general so it's not really a good idea to make generalities about them before release. I've been building for 20+ years and the brands I've used have varied through the years. Asus has always been a go-to but since they raised the entry level price of...

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    I picked up one of these after my X470 Taichi committed suicide (rebooted itself during bios downgrade because new bios was terrible). I must say I'm impressed after the struggles of the X470 Taichi. Even on the release BIOS it came right up, offered me DDR4-4000 speeds that my ram was rated...
