Just in case anybody wondered when the MSI MAX boards might come out:

I just pre-ordered one in Germany from a larger online shop for 95€ and they say it will 'probably' be available starting the 31st of July.

That's pretty much the price the non-MAX version sells for, so hopefully that's a sign that MSI doesn't plan on charging an extra 20€ for the 32MB bios.

Monitor is a 165hz 1440p gsync, I'm in the US. I also got about $450 for some of my old parts so that brings the price down a bit. I plan to use this for 3 years before selling and doing the same if there is a significant performance gain to be had(like in this case 4 cores -> 8 cores, over 100% gpu performance increase).
What do you think?
Going to replace the case fan and the one on the GPU cooler, 280mm radiator will go up front. With an AIO on both main parts as well as an additional 2x 120mm noctuas moving air I think it'll stay pretty quiet and cool even though it's small.

Well it's not pictured but I also use a 1080p 240hz monitor depending on the game. I like keeping my games as close to 165hz as possible and there are 3 new games that aren't even out yet that I'll actually play(haven't played a AAA in like 5 years).
The 2080ti isnt even doing 165fps in most new AAA's on 1440p so I figured I had to at least go for it instead of a 2070 super or something.

Recommendations for a good cooler to get with my 3800x?

>> No.72058222

Yeah dude, you won't get 240fps in every game. You're insane for thinking that's achievable. Most games simply run shit no matter your hardware. That's why it's a stupid dragon to chase.

You're paying $1920 to just get about 30% higher FPS than you could get for $850. That's how it is. If you're fine with that, then go for it, it's whatever.

Yes... just like Polaris and Vega also where. IIRC Polaris gave like a 5% frequency improvement for each 10% you lowered the temp. It's just a physical fact of the process nodes.

Most taxing game I play is Apex Legends and I can get a stable 110 fps on a 1440 monitor with max settings, but I believe I have shadows turned down. GPU has only ever hit a max of 60. Outside of that, the most taxing thing would be SVP.

Get a SSD if you don't have one already, a cheaper board, faster ram, a not shit case and a 1660 (Ti) or Vega 56.
If you feel adventurous, go with a R5 3600 + B450 Tomahawk.

3600X and 3800X are the trash bin that can't hit the clockspeeds of the 3600/3700X at that low TDP, so they let them draw more power and sell them more expensive.

Try if it works with another mobo? Clear CMOS?

>> No.72058630

I got it about half a year back at least but still wasn't bad for the price, with the FTW3 crap it's definitely significantly stronger than the XT.

Again you can easily do better now but I'd still recommend buying used since graphics card technology hasn't made any real leaps in years.

Locked i5 is kind of under rated. No one ever considers the locked intel CPUs. Which is fair enough considering there is no premium on 'unlocked' ryzen shit and the 3600 is the best value for nearly every use case outside of very high 1080p refresh.
I was checking out the 9400, 8700, 9700 etc and they do pretty well. Even the i3 9350 is kind of interesting since it's only $99. $350 5700, $99 9350, $65 mobo, $90 ram and you got a great 60 or 75hz box for dirt cheap.
Although yeah 3600 would only be another $100 I suppose.

I did everything I could. I have a 2x16GB Samsung B-die kit CL14-3200MHz that works flawlessly in my old X370/R7-1700X build. Couldn't even get anything above 2933MHz stable at CL17 timings. Anything faster or fighters caused a hard lock. CPU could be tamed if I was willing to force a voltage via LLC, but then I lost a shit load of performance in single threads because apparently these things are binned to need 1.5v for their "4.5GHz boost". Of which I didn't see. All I ever saw on a single core was 4.35GHz once. I was willing to ignore the performance issues while I wait for a fix if the system would just stay on.

No it's not. It's shit. So is the 9600k, for that matter, unless you're just looking to run one specific game like CSGO and don't care about anything else.

>please don't buy a R5 2600, a better CPU, for only $120
>please pay $150 for a locked threadlet i5
Why'd you ever buy that CPU to begin with...? You could have bought a 1600 or 2600 at the time and you likely wouldn't be feeling the need to upgrade now.

Even a used 8700k isn't worth it when you can likely get a b450 board + 3600 for the price of a used 8700k by itself.

3600 is generally all you need. But if you want a consistent 100+ fps, some future games may be more demanding of more cores. Like Kingdom Come Deliverence is an example which can dip to 35-45fps on a 9700k or 3600 and 60-70fps on a 3700X.
Can argue that the game is still unfinished and that's optimization issues, but still.

install this on your old case with the old PSU, wich you should consider upgrading asap. after the PSU upgrade you will need to consider the storages, that might be reaching end of life.

this is ~220 USD give or take. it leaves you with ~80 for a GPU. you can tecnically get a USED rx580~570 or 1050ti for that price i think, maybe, who knows. it will likely be mining trash so expect to rebuy it later. if you dont know the rating of your PSU look for a low profile or SFF 1050ti, they consume less power that 570.

It is pretty good but because the 5700 is only $70 more I would still likely go for that.
It's actually extremely specific to what you play. If I had absolutely no hardware right now I would buy a 1080p 144hz monitor as they cost nothing and then the cheapest possible thing to make my game work. For example I can play my 3 games maxed out at 144hz on a 580.
GPU market is so bad that just getting through it without being raped too bad would be a pretty good goal. 100% buy what you need to play your game on your monitor again though the choice is pretty highly game dependent.

RX5600 will be more power efficient.
Probably between 1660 and 1660ti performance, closer to 1660ti at $250 and 100-120W.
Vega 56 will sit between the 5600 XT and 5700, but use more power than even the 5700 Xt.

If you can find Vega 56 at $270-$280, it's still going to hold the price:performance crown, but it's not very efficient (at least it's not very inefficient like the RX580, either)
Also, RX 5600 will support RIS as it's part of the Navi architecture, which will likely reasonably do 1080p-1200p upscaling to 1440p

If you want to play older games you need to use an older OS or emulate on Linux. You're going to have trouble with Nvidia on Win10 as well.

It's not much more difficult than installing a CPU cooler, with the main extra difficulty being that you have to installed the small heatsinks onto the VRAM and mosfets which are easily identified as dark grey rectangles/squares.

>2k doesn't exist on the tv market, they skipped right to 4k
They currently do upscaling of 1440p-1800p to 4k on consoles, you mong.

lol a larger navi die is obviously coming. This one is only 255mm^2 or something. The 2080Ti is 775mm^2 (or effectively around half that if it were 7nm as well).
It also appears that Navi doesn't have the 64CU limit of GCN, and that it's instead a 128CU limit. So we may even see a card that's significantly faster than the 2080Ti, and maybe even one that matches or come close to the 3080Ti. But I don't think so, on the later part, because even if it's technically possible I don't think AMD would think it makes business sense to as it's such a small market.

1070Ti was a good card, minus the proper dx12/vulkan/hdr support. 5700XT could be a decent upgrade, as it's +/- a 1080Ti, but yeah you're better off waiting for big Navi or Nvidia's 7nm if you want a more significant upgrade.

Some ram makers even say their sticks are for Ryzen.

Also run a memcheck if you haven't already to double make sure it's the RAM. Not the windows shit, not sure if 10 added a proper checker that isn't useless. Sometime ago, some anons were talking about RAM overclocking autism and pointed to a tool called

??? It already blows the shit out of it. The 5700 XT is over 50% faster than the 1070 and only uses slightly more power. It's as big as a jump as 2060S to 2080Ti is.

Even if you exclusively play games, the 3700X generally gives much better frametimes. Check Digital Foundry's review. Outside of the outlier Witcher 3 (which for some reason performed much differently for them than others. Others show the 3700X getting in the 165-200fps in that game), and even including that, their conclusion was that the 3700X was better even for pure gaming due to the consistently good and smooth performance.

afaik it is normal. High voltage, at low amps. If you have a wall meter, you should see that the power consumption is still low.
You can cut it down by changing the Win10 power plan, I think. Do you have the latest chipset drivers, too?

I've seen a lot of people saying it was one program causing the high voltage, like an RGB tuning application like icue.

higher temps are due to the high density of the temps. Also a lot of people are doing paste wrong and it's not covering the edges where the dies actually area. The center method on Ryzen is bad.

not bad, this is just how the zen 2 seem to like it

besides, zen 2 works different in how it fluctuates voltage from what i have read and supposedly this is all normal behaviour anyways according to the amd rep over at leddit,as long as the voltage sometimes drops to below 1.0 even for just brief moments, even 0.9 is fine

At 90 dollars (in Canada) it's cheap as fuck but at the original 120 it faces competition from lower wattage but newer PSU (the G750h is from 2016 so still recent). At 750w at it's price it's a decent gold budget PSU for SLI/CF or having leeway for more top end AMD cards but 550w or 600w are also good since most non-SLI/CF use cases won't breach it but currently not many are on sale.

No. Probably $20-$40 more expensive. Still much better deals than 2060S/2070S.

having at least 2 intake fans is always good.
But are you sure that PC isn't overkill? Unless you're pairing it with a high refresh rate monitor, it is. Keep in mind the XT is +/- 1080ti performance, which is far more than most people need or can utilize.

You already carelessly threw money on 3800x instead of getting the 3700x, or even better the 3600 as the differences in games between even the 3900x and 3600 are minimal. You won't hit the advertised boost clocks either way. Single core 4.3-4.4Ghz at 1.5V for a couple of seconds before the CPU throtles down to more managable 4.2Ghz is the best you can hope for and future proofing is a bad meme anyway.
