    The lack of B450 MB's on Amazon and other places?

    Microcenter has stock on a couple x570 and B550. I was watching their stock today where they had 10 x570 Strix-F and 10 B550 Aourus Masters in the morning. PPL must be crazy because when I last checked a few hours ago there wrere 3 Strix-F's left to 7 B550 Masters. The kicker is they are both...

    Post your Zen 2/2+ memory speeds!

    I was messing around with the bios on my strix-e after flashing the latest 2203 bios. Setup is stock on cpu, slight bump on soc to 1.05v, ram at 3800/1900 fabric at latencies c15. Ran the the cache bench then some R20.

    Utterly EPYC Workstation

    A 3990x can overclock like crazy though, its not hard to run a 4.3ghz overclock which will net over 33K in R20. Granted this is pretty darn cheap at $3K and I'm guessing a one off situation?

    Ryzen 3900X (or 3950X) on X370.

    You got 60% at stock, omfg? That means your board is goosing the chip by quite a bit. First thing I would do is disable PBO and then test again. Regarding these cpus there is a slight learning curve with them, so I'm gonna cheat and link to a thread instead rewriting everything here...

    Ryzen 3900X (or 3950X) on X370.

    I suggest you not randomly adjust things w/o fully understanding the apparatus underneath. Take the power deviation, if you got 95% that means your board is not lying to your cpu. And that deviation number is only valid during an allcore situation with all cores loaded like running a Cinebench...

    How can I get the most out of my 3700x?

    I hadn't read this edited post so here goes. I didn't delete anything from my main points. First the reddit post is NOT talking about stock voltages. It is dealing with manual voltages, what is safe, and how to figure your chip's safe voltage. I'm not making any claims that were NOT already...

    Ryzen 3900XT, 3800XT, and 3600XT allegedly to be announced by June 16th

    All things are not equal. The B550 chipset doesn't use a fan because it is not gen4. That being the case it uses less wattage 5w (gen3) vs 10w (gen4), hence why it does not need a fan. Welcome to just getting to gen3 I guess lol?

    Ryzen 3900XT, 3800XT, and 3600XT allegedly to be announced by June 16th

    Yea, but everything else is gen 3. B550 is rather expensive because the better equipped ones are well over 150 and the cheapest x570 is 170. The most expensive 550 is 280+ and is ridiculous cuz you can get a high end x570 for same/similar price and be all PCIE 4.

    Setting up a new loop, GPU + CPU

    P/P is louder so it'd be worse, ofc you gain generally one degree improvement in temps per rad.

    Ryzen 3900XT, 3800XT, and 3600XT allegedly to be announced by June 16th

    Yeap, no point to switching to these chips unless you are a new buyer to the market and want it now. The reality is that these are directed at ppl on the fence between Intel and AMD. It seems AMD is confident that a slight boost clock bump is enough to close the marginal gaming deficit. I also...

    How can I get the most out of my 3700x?

    Oh you're referring to the under reporting of power usage by the motherboard here? That refers to power usage not temps or voltages. It's a good test to run... but a different topic. However there is a distinction to be learned here. By default most software by that I mean 99% software...

    Recomend an inline temperature sensor.

    Does your mb have a temp sensor header? I'd rather not have to look at my case to get a reading... and voila the joys of using hwinfo to rename sensors to whatever works.

    How can I get the most out of my 3700x?

    There isn't a definitive guide. But there is an order and process to it. These cpus are very different from previous generations of cpus from AMD and Intel. They react to context changes incredibly fast so if you by default are monitoring the wrong sensors it will "look" hotter or worse than it...

    Ryzen Master?

    You ran 1.431v under a full load to all cores? I'm pretty sure you are well over max FIT voltage.

    Here are the x79 goods. Make me an offer. Unless noted, mainly just the RIVE, everything is in good condition. The RIVE was my daily driver... the bad cpu header was my fault and the sound on it has static, probably my fault too lol. Asus Rampage IV Extreme retail box (cpu fan header not...

    Ryzen R5-1600 AF

    Here's something funny. My kids system is a combo of hand me downs though some parts are still pretty high end like a Radeon VII. I skimped on his cpu with the 1600AF. It makes for a hilarious combo with the VII. I just helped him source a Nixeus EDG34 which he paid for with his tutoring job...

    Are these temps normal for Ryzen 3600?

    Grats. 1.28v range is more realistic for FIT voltage. Now that you've found you safe voltage you CAN set it in bios.

    Advice on picking new FULL-TOWER case

    I dunno about you guys but I'm upgrading the main parts cpu/gpu end of the year. RDNA2 or 30xxTI and Zen 3 baby! Newer is better in this case.

    Advice on picking new FULL-TOWER case

    Did you see the msrp? Fuck that lol. I'd rather buy a 3970x than a case. Personally I hate these show cases. I upgrade my rig too often to get settled long term in a show case. Re: the Phanteks 719 I'm currently using a Phanteks 719. The case actually just fell into my lap by error. I was...

    6700k Itching to upgrade (I'm using a 2080Ti@1440p and do some 4k video editing) - 3900x or keep on rocking my 6700k?

    That there... you know shows the lower efficiency of gpu encoding. GPU encoding is fast for sure but it doesn't look as good so if you are going for quality you lose on size reduction.

    Advice on picking new FULL-TOWER case

    They're is nothing that is gonna handle 20 drives w/o modifications. The Phanteks 719 is the closes thing today to a good full tower but it maxes out at 30mm radiator depth. And you can only stick 4 - 3.5 HDs in there and would have to pay for more drive docks. And on that point, goping over 6...

    Explaining the AMD Ryzen "Power Reporting Deviation" -metric in HWiNFO

    I swear ian missed the forest from the trees. This is a serious issue in the context that if you didn't know about it and think your cpu is doing what it's supposed to be doing. And then you go to overclock like the majority of users who don't read or research anbd they end up jacking PBO up or...

    Silverstone GD09 - AIO Watercooling Edition x 2

    Yeap, gpu encoding still sucks compared to cpu. But for the op, making videos for youtube is hardly difficult. You don't wanna be like tech jesus and make a threadripper for youtube lolz.
