Everyone laughed at its release at how the performance was not up to what was expected.

Yet the alternative has
>Intel ME remote execution bugs,
>the almost certainty that Intel ME is a purpose built backdoor
>meltdown bug,
>susceptibility to Spectre variant 2 which is way more damaging than variant 1
>Considering all of the above by default Intel chips are not secure.

Ryzen has PSP which is similar to Intel ME, the FX-series do not have such a system. With micro code patched for spectre one and with the Core boot folks making great progress for Bulldozer.

This is the best time to buy yourself the last remaining FX chips, because future revelations surely find new issues with ME and PSP.

Children, not all machines need security. Do you not know to use a Coreboot/Libreboot Thinkpad with a live Linux image which doesn't use or touch a hard disk?

Build your gaymen box with whatever. Of course that will run live distros (you can easily make live WinPE and related live ,isos too, FalconFour is a handy toolkit example) and boot them on UEFI if make using Rufus.

You can also skip the above and boot Knoppix, which has the tools to remaster itself so you can roll your own live distro. Knoppix should be in everyone's toolkit. Great for data rescue too.

Your hardware doesn't matter if it never gets attacked in the first place. Your host OS could be a waterfall of malware but it doesn't run if you don't boot it, and exploits against ME won't work if the attacker never gets access while you are booted to a live OS because he/she/xir cannot conveniently cover every base. They just hunt retarded Winfags mostly.

If the NSA wants you, and it doesn't, you're done anyway. Skiddies OTOH ain't the NS fucking A.

I hope these bugs chase millions of workstations and servers out of corporate hands so I can score a couple cheap. This will be great for corporate sales, great for competition (if Intel and AMD didn't compete your dumbass teentard selves couldn't afford good PCs) and great for IT jobs. It's all win.

Be careful with this. 4+1 VRM designs usually have terrible cooling, so if you aren't using a cooler that blows air over the VRM heatsink, you can burn it out with a high wattage chip.

Not sure. Depends on which way the cooler is mounted, as it only pushes air sideways out of the cooler.
What burned out on my board was the chipset, causing the first PCIe slot to break, and whole system failure when it got too hot. I could only measure the heatsink, but it would shut down at ~145'c, so the chipset itself would have been over 160'c.
I would recommend something like the L12S, or something from the Cooler Master Gemini line. You could also go with something like the Wraith spire if you're willing to get creative.

Nah there are very cheap modules of 4GB, you only need one of for single channel mode.

Adata, micron etc etc 42- 49 euro's. Also the cheapest boards are around 45 euro plus ryzen 3 1200 also cheap. Better for you if need it as your first system.

FX-8350 is faster multi-threaded than the Ryzen 3 1200, but just barely. Only when you overclock a 8370 to 5Ghz do you get the speed of Ryzen 5 1400 in multi theaded applications. Ryzen 5 and 3 will still be better in single thread though and require less power to do it.

but is it true?

how do we find out?

anyway, decided to go

that will have these

just, hopefully,

But that's comparing an overclocked cpu with a stock one, that's no comparison, that's retarded. You would have a point comparing 8370 with 9xxx processors, because all of them bottomed out at 5.2-5.3, unlike the 8320 which hardly ever made it past 4.6 with custom loops.
