Humming along nicely with my 3970 threadripper and 2700X. You can guess which one is getting upgraded! :)
Probably late Dec or early Jan for me to replace the 2700X. Going for a 5950X. Funny too, there's an Intel i7 5960X system here. Also have a SR-2 with a pair of X5690 Xeons. Confusing numbers. :)
Like everyone else, it's really getting old with all this price gouging going on. Especially GPUs. Just let everyone reserve one and receive in order they were were reserved. This madness needs to stop. Along with mining.

I have 5600X Installed on X570 Gigabyte Aorus Elite board tried F30 BIOS update & F31e can't get it to post. F30 DID BETTER but not by much only difference rgb came on. No BIOS screen any help appreciated . I tried resting BIOS, clearing cmos, checked Ram one @ time Plz Help point of RMA but Gigabyte won't even return calls.

This should probably be asked in its own thread but as a quick check because you didn't mention it, are you using a discrete GPU?

Picking up a 5900X. What motherboard are you guys recommending. I just need something that will run this damn thing at 4.9 Gs all core. Was thinking about either ASUS TUF X570 WIFI or MSI Tomahawk X570. Need that RGB as well.
I would've gone MSI Unify but it doesn't have RGB which means I won't be able to overclock higher. :p

The Tomahawk is a great board just difficult to find due to demand. That Asus is a slight step down in features but would also work just fine. The Unify or x570-E would be your best option but your at the $299 price range then.

Cool thanks. I can get Tomahawk very close to MSRP of 230 or so locally so will go for that then.

Just picked up a 5800x. Gave up on a 5900x/5950x for now. I've got another system to get up and running with the 3700x it's replacing. I don't really anticipate needing more than that for my uses, but I can always pick up a 59xx later down the road if that ever changes or perhaps just upgrade to whatever the new hotness is at the time.
