    Mobo pairing for a 3900X?

    Second vote for the ASUS ROG X570-E, it has a crazy amount of features, ports, 2.5Gb ethernet and Intel 1Gb ethernet. Really solid board so far.

    Just bought a Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming Ultimate...

    The board just seemed higher quality, it was probably nothing material...but the LEDs were better placed and better quality, the matte black board was gorgeous, the M.2 heatsink design was much easier to use. Little thing...honestly, nothing major at all, but if they were the same price, I'd...

    Just bought a Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming Ultimate...

    Going great, I actually like the Gigabyte boards better, but the inability to not set straight CPU voltages is a disqualifier. For $190 the ASUS Strix has been a great performer, has done everything I've asked of it. Still sitting at 4.3GHz @ 1.4v, OC's my ram from 3000 to 3200 and am working on...

    Just bought a Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming Ultimate...

    Microcenter didnt have the Gaming 7 in stock, so I ended up purchasing an ASUS Strix X470 Gaming-F for $190. It has everything I needed and more for OC'ing. Currently at 4.3GHz on all cores, but have a lot of tweaking to do still and still haven't even started on the RAM yet.

    Just bought a Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming Ultimate...

    Yea, I can only find the Gaming 7 (which allows you to set Vcore) and the Ultra Gaming (which only allows Vcore offset of up to +0.300)....I can't find anything about the Gaming 5. I'm guessing it will be like the Gaming 7, but would like to know for sure before I return it. It works fine if I...

    My AM4 waterblock should be here tomorrow, soon as I slap it in I'll come back with my results on the OC. Still debating if I should return it and get the Gaming 5 as i "think" it allows you to set the Vcore manually in that BIOS.

    Motherboard reviews?

    Can you set your Vcore voltages in the BIOS on the Gaming 5? I have the Ultra Gaming and it only lets me set them via offsets, which is annoying. Edit: I just watched that video....it looks like you can only do offsets with the Gaming 5 as well? Am I missing something, like on the voltage page...

    Just bought a Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming Ultimate...

    Just a heads up for anyone else looking at this board. I'm contemplating returning it and getting the Gaming 5 version. Not sure if the BIOS is different though? Trying to OC, and I can only set voltage via offsets. The max offset is +0.300v, and when I boot up CPUz is telling me that I'm at...

    Quality of AMD Motherboards

    I just bought a Gigabyte X470 Gaming Ultra last night for $139 (and 2700 for $229!) at MC and I can tell you its one of the nicer boards I've ever worked with, especially considering its their lowest x470 tiered board. It comes with a lot of features I wouldn't have thought would come at this...

    Just bought a Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming Ultimate...

    Awesome, that's pretty much what I'm thinking...I got such a great price on everything is seems silly to spend $90 more on some BIOS options. I'll roll with it as is and just lock it at 4.2GHz 1.4v Thanks!

    Just bought a Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming Ultimate...

    Same mobo I have...its a damn nice board for $139. And the Ryzen 2700 at $229 is a steal...that a boat load of performance for $370. I'm just not sure if the OC options in the higher tiered boards are worth it?

    Just bought a Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming Ultimate...

    Just bought a new mobo and Ryzen 2700 to replace my aging i7 3820. Wow, what a difference even at stock speeds! I got it all up and running and verified everything is working, RAM is running XMP @ 3000MHz, so I decided to look into how to overclock these (I went with the 2700 @ MC for $229...

    how much AMD GPU power for 34" monitor?

    I've only found one thats silly with 21:9 and its on purpose. Overwatch. Those bastards think its an advantage to have a wider FoV, so you get the same FoV as 16:9....but theres no black bars or anything.

    how much AMD GPU power for 34" monitor?

    I have the non-curved 2560x1080 LG UW and its paired with an RX480 8GB, its runs this monitor perfectly for me. I absolutely love it. Never going back to anything less than an UW. Your Fury should suit you quite well!

    What video card? I've been out of the loop a while...

    For what its worth, I do a lot of Premiere and Photoshop, and the video cards do help, but not a ton. I got a much better boost from upgrading my CPU to a hexacore Xeon than I did from using a newer NVIDIA card. In fact I ended up returning the video card and just going with the CPU upgrade...
