    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    I really wish I knew why - there is absolutely no reason for it not to be in there. Good news is if you turn it off in Simpleton mode then switch back to Advanced it stays off. I refuse to install extra poorly coded software to disable ridiculous lights that I don't need or care about. As it...

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    I'll give it a go. Currently on 1.2.0.2 working on my curve optimizer setup, haven't bothered seeing if my RAM can do 3800 CL14 yet. Haven't had any USB issues since I built this rig 9 months ago or so

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    IIRC the previous beta was based on 1.2.0.1, as I just flashed that when they were like oh here is 1.2.0.2 and I didn't update for over a month. I can report that I am now on 1.2.0.2 with no issues/instability problems. I don't use that live update crap, you can trust Windows to fuck up somehow...

    Can you install a Ryzen 3600 into a powered on computer socket without damaging it?

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    I mine Monero in my spare time. I noticed a hash rate increase from about 14,200 H/s to 15,500 H/s. That's a pretty decent gain after switching to 1.2.0.1. Edit: It appears that if you were on AGESA 1.2.0.0 which had a bug with L3 cache performance this will benefit you, prior versions do not...

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    If you go into the 'normie' BIOS mode there is a toggle to disable those LEDs right on the main page. I've yet to find the setting in the advance view. I believe the default key to switch between normal & advance BIOS is F7. Once you disable it in normal it persists if you go back into Advance.

    FS: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X

    Used for the past month as a place holder until I could get a 5900X. Kept nice and cool under a 360 AIO. I also tested it with a 3700X Wraith Prism cooler - this chip does not the running hot issue. Temps maxed out 55-60C under stress load. AMD Ryzen 7 5800X - $420 + $10 shipping Con US SOLD...

    AMD AGESA ComboV2 1.2.0.0

    I figured it out, you are right I did miss one single setting. I have to use Geardown Mode for it to work properly, despite not wanting to use it. I can post 1T and do things throughout Windows for a while but the second I try to benchmark or stress it's insta blue screen. There goes an evening lol

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    After reverting my bios back to 1.51 I was still crashing. I missed 1 single setting...completely forgot I had to use Geardown Mode to achieve those clocks. After this - 1.5 is working great. There goes this evening lol. I wish I didn't have to use Geardown Mode - hurts the memory bandwidth...

    AMD AGESA ComboV2 1.2.0.0

    Just updated my MSI X570 Tomahawk to the Agesa 1.2.0.0 release - my 3800/1900 CL14 memory overclock isn't stable anymore. So far, not even at 3400...wtf Edit: I missed a setting

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    Just updated to 7C84v15 from 7C84v151 and my memory overclock is no longer stable, at all. Was previously running 3800/1900 with CL14 timings (Samsung b die). I've lowered the RAM down to so far 3400 and still not stable....BSOD with any benchmark. this is annoying.. Edit: Another observation...

    What is this "b-die" that I keep reading about in various threads?

    Thanks for that clarification and the bump! I planned to eventually use this at the wife's desk for her laptop but she doesn't really have a use for a dedicated GPU.

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    I might give 1.4 a try today then. I don't use the XMP profile just avoiding that headache entirely. 3600 CL14 is stable for me currently

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    I'm at stage right before you are lol. It's been really eating at me the past 3-4 days while the excitement of Ryzen 5000 gets drained from me - not being able to push clocks because of a beta bios "bug" that who knows when will be addressed. Someone on here kept saying beginning of December but...

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    I've been screwing with my x570 Tomahawk the past 3-4 days with a 5800X. Currently vCore offset is broken and will lock you to stock clocks/no boost with PBO enabled. Override does work but I'm finding my chip runs much hotter, even with 1.33-1.35v to the point I hit throttle and clocks drop to...

    What ya using your 1x slots for?

    Dang I like that idea. I've been happy with this Xonar Essence STX ever since I got it, drives my ATH-900X very well but in Windows 10 it randomly has a bug to where it starts an extremely high pitch tone that is deafening...apparently it's an issue with Windows 10 - quite unpleasant. How do...

    What ya using your 1x slots for?

    Yep - this slot layout pisses me off. It blocks this fan for the GPU entirely...going to get a riser or something and relocate the sound card.

    Found a very nice cinebench gain with my X470 Taichi Ultimate and 4 sticks of B-die..

    If USPS ever decides to deliver my 5800X - I've got a 4x8GB set of 3200 CL16 CJR SR & a 2x16GB set of 3200 CL16 D-die DR that does 3600 CL16. I know the consensus is 4 ranks is the winner but I like to tinker - will post results.
