    Need mobo for 3600x

    Thanks for the advice, I'm tempted to wait too, but it appears the age of the 2600k and it's chipset are causing trouble with the intel wireless transmitter. I have the 3900x on this computer with a X570 chipset and 128gb of ram! Great system - 24 threads means I can multitask cpu intensive...

    Need mobo for 3600x

    Hi, I hoping to upgrade my wireless HTC vive computer. It's on it's last legs with a 2600k oc to 4.8 and a 1080 gpu. For now, I just want to upgrade the mobo, cpu and ram on a bit of a budget. Main issue is the X570 mobo's are expensive. So I've turned to older B450 mobo's for the lower...

    3900x oc to 4.3 question

    True, it was stable though at 1.35, instability in p95 showed at 1.325 so pretty narrow margin I agree.

    3900x oc to 4.3 question

    Ok, I reset to stock and then just changed PBO from auto to enabled. Core voltage on auto runs around 1.43v which seems crazy, but that drops to 1.32 under load. With PBO enabled during cb20 load I'm seeing 4.05 exactly as you guys predicted. So next up I'll test the per core oc as per the...

    3900x oc to 4.3 question

    Hmm, ok I'll check, still learning my way around amd bios. I tested p95 small fft at 4.3ghz manual and 1.325v and get instant errors. So I'm resetting to stock and keep testing. Thanks for all the info.

    3900x oc to 4.3 question

    If I'm loading the chip all cores, it's running at stock 3.8, so manual of 4.3 makes a big difference: eg. 7500 cinebenchr20 up from 6950

    3900x oc to 4.3 question

    I have the thermaltake 360 in a Fractal R6 case. I'll try the voltage a little lower, thanks for the link - I'll try it and see how it goes!

    3900x oc to 4.3 question

    Unfortunately I do both, solidworks and FEA are strongly single threaded and rendering / point cloud software is incredibly multi-threaded (like 100% utilization for 8 hours importing data on my previous 8700k). I knew about PB and PBO but not PB2? More research required.

    3900x oc to 4.3 question

    I would see 4.6 on single core just watching the load on Core Temp though so can't speak about the accuracy of that. I'm currently running 1.35v for the 4.3 manual with LLC at 3, so I see a droop to 1.34 under load. Just now though I'm reading that 1.35 may be a little too high? Aida64...

    3900x oc to 4.3 question

    Hi, I have my 3900x running at 4.3 all cores. So that's fine, improves the cinebench r20 score (7500), but by manually forcing all cores to 4.3 it means they are allways there, and I'm missing out on the boost to 4.6 on single threaded apps. I'm new to the amd bios environment so I'll keep...

    128gb memory for 3900x?

    Hi, I would like 4 32gb modules at 3200. Corsair doesn't sell a 4x32 kit at that speed ( I think 2600 they top out at). But they do sell these 2x32gb modules. https://www.newegg.ca/corsair-64gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820236586 Do you think 4 of these would work ok? Mobo is...

    Asus motherboard for Z370? So many models?

    HI, I'm looking for a few Z370 motherboards for 8700k processors. With 64gb of ram. These are workstations, which I've built for years, and for a long time I'd used the sabertooth boards. But now they have gone away and the Asus model list is so extensive I have no idea what to pick or how...

    Flaky power on with Asus z170 sabertooth mark 1??

    So, with this system, I've now swapped the mobo, the case and the psu and it still wont reliably power on. So, must be the ram or cpu or video card??? Loosing my marbles on this system. I've never seen anything like it. Motherboards lights up, but wont turn on, doesn't even try. But then...

    Flaky power on with Asus z170 sabertooth mark 1??

    Hi, I have a 2yr old system with a asus z170 sabertooth mark 1 motherboard. It reached a state where it wouldn't power-on. Seemed like it was a bad case power switch at the time (about a month ago). So I switched the guts into a new case (330r blackout edition /corsair carbide) Now, it's...

    Asus TUF Z270, wrong size for ATX??

    Hi, I just grabbed one of these boards and it's 12" x 9.2" instead of 9.6" and is missing 2 holes at the right edge corners, and the middle hole on the right edge has no standoff in my case! What gives? I have to use it in this case for now, it's entire right side is unsupported. Not sure...
