    Would you still advise to not get x570 boards for 3700x? Or things changed since?

      Would the Asus Crosshair Vll be good enough for the 3900x. Or would I be better off going with a X570.

        NORDVPN = WASTE OF MONEY. . . Windows has built in software that enables the use of VPN services that don't charge you a dime. . . Why would anyone buy bloatware is beyond me, but perhaps that is why I don't get payed the big bucks

          I got the same issue with my Ryzen 5 3600. It was not a X570 board but a X370 board but the same error message "07". Asus suggested that the error 07 and error 8 point to a broken cpu. Luckily Amazon was so kind to replace my cpu.

            How much more power does PBO drawns and increase temps?

                Deferences in gaming would be a even more if the chips were overclocked. Same with the Synthetic benchmarks.

                  I get only 44 fps with I5 8400 and RTX 2070 super in Odyssey but at 12:30 even 1600 touches 60. Can you help?

                    Seems like AMD has finally reached Intel even in most games 👍 adding in pricing, they're just way better overall CPU's with less power consumption and more headroom for multitasking. Intel really needs to lower their prices or step up their game if they want to compete imo

                      About the IPC test: was the Intel cache speed also locked to 4 GHz? I don't know how does it behave, maybe you have to lock it separately?

                          on my 3700x + b450 gaming pro carbon(with latest bios) i get 4600-4630 r20 multi core score :(, all is out of the box except xmp for the ram. Single score peak is 4,33 multi core boost up to 3,95 :(

                            Wait a minute, you don't fix the voltage when testing the OC performance? I don't think that's the best methodology, since you introduce variance (some boards may boost voltage higher, for example).

                              I have two unopened 3900X CPU’s available if anyone is interested for $619.99 plus $5 shipping. Reply if interested 😎

                                I had 1920x since launch but now the board started giving me problem day and day. So sold it. Bought the best board, x570 aorus xtreme with 3700x..OCd to 4.3ghz.

                                This is because I'm waiting for 3950x and will trade in. But man this is beast and with OC, it's already exactly same and someplaces faster than my 1920x which was already ocd to 4ghz...

                                My cinebench r20 scores 5000 at 4.3ghz at 1.38v

                                But here's my problem, i have h115i and at idle my copy runs around 40-50c and on load goes to 80c even in 10 seconds run... Checked everything..

                                  I wonder when the Gaming while Streaming benchmark will be the standard for Gaming benchmarks.

                                    There was no cost per frame graph that studied 1440p performance. I would argue that it's even more important than comparing 1080p performance.

                                      Has anyone done testing to see how the new Ryzen3000 series gets along with dual rank memory? Does it suffer the same reduced mem clock speeds as 1st and 2nd gen when all 4 mem slots are occupied?

                                        i would love if a benchmark maker would actually display the games i play. Everything is always shit shooters and mainstream garbage. Where are the Final Fantasy XIV, World of Warcraft, and other rpg benchmarks?

                                          How much difference would running memory at AMD's recommended speed rather than the 3200MHz used, make to these results ?

                                            Somebody tell me that 3900X isn't a gaming cpu when it's better than 3700X in every game and nearly reaches 9900K performance

                                              Honestly that 3700x got me with its 65W TDP. Perfect for me, PC will be on 24/7 mostly for work and some gaming now and then.

                                                  is there any integrated graphics in Ryzen 3600 for normal computing??? Can it run without graphics card?

                                                    I can bet that you were using a Gigabyte board when testing the 3900X. My x470 Aorus Gaming Pro fried my 2600X twice (yeah I had to RMA it twice becouse I just thought it was the CPUs fault). After litterly two months of struggling I just returned everything and bought the same setup except I got the b450-f asus rog at a different store. That GB board was my first and my last...

                                                      Hey steve, there is a lot of people saying your 3900x died because you try to overclock it past 1.35v, there is a locked reddit thread that says 1.325 is the max you should go for all core OC, what do you make of that? Are these 3rd gen ryzen voltage sensitive to the point where they would die from 1.4ish vcore?
                                                      Because ive tried PBO and it goes to like 1.42

                                                        by far too expensive all the CPUs are too expensive I thought the 3900x would be about 300 EURO,
                                                        over 500 Euro I can get a Teslar for that money, or build a house.

                                                          Still extremely disappointing in gaming than, just as I expected. Who would pay 1200$ for a gpu to than miss out on even a single % of performance?

I just got my 3900x and just let sit everythin in stock and got "horrible" results 3.9GHz all core boost and max 4.0Ghz single core boost.(CB20: 6500) When I manually oc (which I dont want to for everyday use - stability is more important than speed for me) I can easily get up to 4.2, even 4.3 (sometimes). What do I have to configure in my bios to get these non manual OC 4.1/4.2 All core boosts? (Aorus Elite x570) Everybody is saying you dont need to OC to get most of the performance, so what do I have to change to enjoy most of the performance without manual OC? Thanks guys, I'm a total AMD noob sorry

Here is the PC Part Picker Link: Any suggestions would be great. Aiming for 1440p gaming. If I can keep the features and save some money it would be cool. Thanks in advance. :D

At 1440p there is literally no reason whatsoever to buy an Intel, and this is just the first week of release, so not even a single driver or game update.
                                                                                AND games will eventually utilise more cores/threads.
                                                                                AAAND developers will work closer with and favour favour AMD if they keep this up.
                                                                                AAANNND support for like £30 motherboards (!?) is increasing. Things can only get better for these chips! AAAANNNNNDDDDDDDDD even in like 4 years time, you can simply drop in a 16c/32t monster (rather than spending £100's on a new Intel mobo+cpu).

                                                                                In the UK, the 3700x is a whopping £160 ( $210) cheaper than the 9900k. If AMD continues this level of competition, we might get back to the good ol' days of only needing to spend £200 for a top tier cpu that lasts over half a decade (eg 2500k / Phenom x2).
                                                                                Who agrees? >>>>
