    x570 or x670 for Zen 3 Build

    Wasn't able to bench test as this was an upgrade, not a new buiild. Had to move the video card PSU, SSD & hard drives over from my old build but check out the new sig. MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    x570 or x670 for Zen 3 Build

    Haven't been abe to start it yet. I decided not to use the Zalman case I bought and ordered a Cooler Master H500P Mesh case from Amazon and Amazon is slow walking my case. It won't be here until tomorrow. I have been going nuts staring at the boxes with my board, CPU & Memory since Tuesday...

    Hallelujah, praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition (X570 boards in stock but going fast)

    Yeah, it's been a bear just finding a board, but luckily Micro Center had their normal prices for their motherboards. Now all I am waiting on is my new Coolermaster Mastercase H500P Mesh case. I had to order it from Amazon because it looks like Frys quit carrying much of anything Coolermaster...

    I think I am going to cry

    Hopefully, I don't have to worrk about the sleep bug. I either lock my 'puter or shut it down. Most of the time it is just on. Since I have an SSD, my machine boots pretty quick and I do a full shutdown every night and then boot it up in the morning. That usually keeps thing running well on...

    Where have all the Post code LED displays gone (and why are the few out there married to WIFI boards)

    Well I decided not to wait for B550. Micro Center got some boards in stock today and I picked up a Gigabyte Aorus Pro WIFI X570 board Not quite what I wanted, no post code LED display and it has WIFI, but it has the 4 boot LEDS and can run dual cards @ 8X and has enough features that I can...

    I think I am going to cry

    Thanks to everyone who replied to this thread. Micro Center got some motherboards in stock today and I picked up a Gigabyte Aorus Pro wifi X570. Not quite what I wanted (no post code LED display and it has WIFI but it has the 4 boot failure LEDS and I can always pick up a PCIe post card later)...

    Hallelujah, praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition (X570 boards in stock but going fast)

    Got up at 8 AM this morning and low and behold, the Houston Micro Center had no less than 7 different motherboards in stock. I picked up a Gigabyte Aorus Pro wifi X570 board (one of 3 they had in stock). As I write this now they are out of stock on the pro board. They were listing 10+ Asus...

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    A lot of US divisions of computer component manufacturers order motherboards, video cards,. and the other items they sell by the multiple container load. Would be kind of expensive to load all of that product on multiple aircraft for expedited shipping.

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    Means he has sold many cases of his stockpiled ammunition and some of his older pistols (hand guns) that were basically worn out after having 20,000 rounds of ammunition fired through them. JHP is jacked hoillow point ammunition and 12ga 00 is 12 gauge double ought buck shotgun shells. It's a...

    Zen 2 goes budget: R3 3100 and R3 3300x

    I found stories at Anandtech & The Guru of 3D so rumor confirmed and it is a fact. YEAH! But the same issue arises, there aren't any B-450 or X470 boards either :cry: I may become a proud owner of a Ryzen 3 3300X and not have a motherboard to stick it on.

    Zen 2 goes budget: R3 3100 and R3 3300x

    Where did you read that? I want to read it because if it is correct I will be buying a B-450 or X-470 baor5d right now Celery 500 hell, I remember the Celeron 300A days on slot A with a BX chipset motherboasrd and off to the races we went.

    Zen 2 goes budget: R3 3100 and R3 3300x

    Supposedly, boards will introduced May 21st, 2020 and will be released June 16, 2020. So we will have to wait for the NDA to go bye bye on Thursday before know what the B550 chip set motherboards will bring.

    Really New Egg?

    I just posted that so you could check the EVGA website for a PSU since you said they are in short supply everywhere else.

    Zen 2 goes budget: R3 3100 and R3 3300x

    Not safe for work digital erotic art (think Bettie Page and/or Marylynn Chambers) using the Iray render engine so I am locked into Nvidia cards. Hoping that the RTX 3000 cards play well together with NVLink. Some of my art is pretty tame but some of it is REAL ornery to paraphraise Robert...

    Really New Egg?

    Oh I know, I saw those boards at 6:30 AM Wednesday morning (I think it was Wednesday) and they were gone by 9 AM. I just did not want to pay $379.99 for one of those boards or I would have bought one. I am good on a PSU. I replaced my Corsair HW1000 with a EVGA SuperNova 1200 P2 Platinum...

    Zen 2 goes budget: R3 3100 and R3 3300x

    Because I need two PCI Slots that run at at lease 8X to run NV link for rendering which means SLI support.

    Really New Egg?

    Nah, I have been checking Amazon, New Egg, Microcenter, & Fry's for days and no decent (as in within my price range) X570 motherboards in stock. Fry's appears to be out nationally but lists several boards as "coming soon". Amazon is shnowing a lot of boards from Pirates wanting 5 and 600 for...

    Really New Egg?

    But it is not spam email. I was STUPID enough to actually sign up for sale and special deal emails form New Egg. Boy did I **** up Only one small problem. They will NEVER get in any more of these particular boards. They are now trying to use this discontinued board to shill for an...

    Really New Egg?

    This is just ridiculous. Just got a marketing email from New Egg offering two "Top Pick" motherboards. I followed the links and both show to be out of stock and "Not available. See similar items below." Seems New Egg is now advertising motherboards they don't have and can no longer get...

    I think I am going to cry

    I checked Microcenter in Houston and they got 8 Asus X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero Wifi boards and one Asrock X570 board (forget which one) and the were all gone within an hour. I would grabbed one of the crosshair boards but did nnot want to pay $379.99 for it. Saw they got one Asrock X570...

    AMD's budget Ryzen 3300X can outperform an old $350 Intel i7

    I do, but it will be a place holder until Zen 3 and the Ryzen 4000 series chips come out. I am actually torn. Do I go ahead and get a Ryzen 7 3700X and a good board now or get the Ryzen 3 3300X and a good X570 board and see what they have for Zen 3 in the way of a good 4000 processor. later...

    I read somewhere that the release date for the Ryzen 3 3100 & 3300X is Thursday May 14th but I can't find it now. I hope the info was right.

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    Hopefully they will be released Thursday along with the Ryzen 3 3100 & 3300X. I had thought about waiting until June for B550 but if the Tomahawk board is $200.00 or below then building a system now with the MSI Tomahawk and a Ryzen 3 3300X as a place holder until the Zen 3 chips come out seems...

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    What excess inventory? Just about everything has been sold. New Egg & Amazon both show unavailable on most MSI boards and every MSI board on the Frys website is sold out nationally. Micro Center shows out of stock at most stores too. Havent checked Best Buy yet but will be checking at lunch...

    I think I am going to cry

    Must be nice. Everything around her is pretty thin. I think I am just going to wait until June 16 to see what B550 has to offer. I plan on picking up a 3300X tomorrow and take a wait and see attitude to see what Zen 3 has to offer when it is released later this year.

    Where have all the Post code LED displays gone (and why are the few out there married to WIFI boards)

    Yes but it has WIFI I did find that on on the ASUS site this morning but it is the exact same price as the Crossfire VIII Hero with WIFI I think I am going with an ASUS Strix E board or the MIS MEG X570 Unity board if I can find them in stock somewhere.

    Where have all the Post code LED displays gone (and why are the few out there married to WIFI boards)

    I just checked all the board sites and the only 570 board I found with a post code display and on and reset buttons without WIFI was a Biostar X570GT8 that appears to already be out of production. So looks like I will be getting a board with WIFI. I have narrowed it down to either a 3700X or...

    Where have all the Post code LED displays gone (and why are the few out there married to WIFI boards)

    I looked into B550 mohterboards but they will not be out until mid June and all of the informaition on the chipset I have seen shows to only be PCIe 3.0 for graphics and I am kind of wanting to futureproof my system a little bit by having PCIe 4.0 for graphics. I have even thought about getting...

    Where have all the Post code LED displays gone (and why are the few out there married to WIFI boards)

    Nope, other than some keepsake motherboards with Athlon processors MELTED into the sockets, all that stuff was lost in a storage room flood or just chunked during various spring cleanings years ago .

    Where have all the Post code LED displays gone (and why are the few out there married to WIFI boards)

    I have been looking to upgrade my motherboard and CPU and plan on going Ryzen this time around. While most motherboards are currently out of stock right now, it looks like there will be a big influx of stock the last half of May (according to Amazon's website in stock dates and Fry's website...

    I think I am going to cry

    Like I said, I could lose the PS2 connector but really want the post code display. My last 5 boards have had one and it has saved my bacon on several occasions (usually when I have done something stupid that messed up my rig). Other than NewEgg, I am having a problem finding a X570 board...

    I think I am going to cry

    A lot of high end mechanical switch gaming keyboards using Cherry mechanical switches use the miniDin6 P/S2 connector. Also I have an old IBM white mechanical switch keyboard as a backup that uses the P/S 2 connector that you can't break with a 10 Lb sledge hammer. I could deal with a board...

    I think I am going to cry

    I went looking for a X570 board last nuight and it is pretty thin out there. My requirements include decent sound, a PS2 port for my mechanical keyboard, and a post code display. I really don't want WiFi on the board as I do not need it. I could not find a single board in stock with my...

    I think I am going to cry

    Yeah Fry's has been sad for a while. I hope they aren't going the way of Best Buy and stop selling major PC components (MBs, CPUs, cases, etc). I remember when Best Buy had the entire back of their store full of computer parts including motherboards and processors. CompUSA was also open back...
