Planning on upgrading to Ryzen 3000 series. On C6H X370. Options?

As title says I'm planning on upgrading to the Ryzen 3000 series. However I don't have the money to buy both an X570 board and a Ryzen 7 CPU at least for a while. So I'm gonna have to stick it out with my C6H. My upgrade budget is about $400. Maybe $500 if I eat ramen and PB&J sandwiches for a couple weeks.

A pipe dream for me would be the 3900X, but I probably won't have enough for it and idk if my C6H will be able to support it well or not. So I'm looking into the 3800X, as I want the higher clocks and boosts as compared to the 3700X. I do some content creation tasks, some coding, and I occasionally stream so I want to stick with at least the 8 core SKUs if at all possible.

What are my prospects for my upgrade? How well would you think the C6H be able to handle the 3900X?

3900X should be fine on C6H if you don't go nuts with voltage. Just won't have much headroom : entry X570 boards from MSI are using 8x powerpaks for low side and high side which is more or less weaker than C6H.

The C6H has 8x 40A TI NexFETs. Those are 90% efficient up to around 25A.

I'm pretty sure you can push around 200W with C6H. More than that is highly dependent on cooling.

Normalized to 125°C rather than T_A = 25°C

Wow that graph was like Greek to me, but thanks providing it and giving your quick analysis on the board.

I don't really plan on overclocking that much, regardless of which processor I go with. Maybe I might try to get 5Ghz on the 3800X since I just bought a Corsair 240mm AIO last week. But if I went with the 3900X, I'm probably just going to go for a very modest overclock, as I don't want the extra heat buildup in my room XD. It gets really hot where I live and my house is not well insulated, so it gets very toasty in my room as well.

How would memory support be on it? I have Samsung B-die 3200Mhz CL14 RAM. I would be okay if I could only manage 3200, but I would not mind at least 3466.

If my finances improve toward the end of the year, I'll probably switch to X570 anyway.

I would just get the 3800x and call it a day. No point in the 3900x if you don't need the cores. Sell the 1700 and recoup the cash to put towards a future GPU upgrade. The 3200 cas 14 should be good for now.

What do you think a 1700, C6H and 16gb 3200 cl14 Tridenz RGB would sell for?

I wouldnt really know, I would look at eBay and maybe get an appraisal here on OCN.

Ah, sorry I forgot to update my sig I guess. I actually bought a used GTX 1070TI on the cheap a while ago.

There are some recent ASUS boards tested with the 3600 on A320 on Geekbench. So that's nice.
