AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Tested on Cheap B350 Motherboard

^As per title^

QUOTE:
"We were curious to see how well a cheap B350 motherboard could run the latest and greatest 12-core, 24-thread Ryzen 9 3900X and were pleasantly surprised that there was no smoke or sparks flying. Actually I'm impressed with how well this two-generation-old platform can run the newest processor — thank you AMD. Intel would have definitely charged us for a new chipset — twice."

Pretty cool, granted those VRM temps are scary!

That board probably doesn't have overtemperature protection , usually it shuts off at 125 Celsius but this review suggests it just throttles at 140 Celsius.

That's really interesting. The air cooler allowed for very decent VRM temps given the design of the board.

What does OCN offer as a site?
What are infractions and warnings?

I am impressed that the board did not fail .
I am waiting on an Asus Strix B350 itx board to come back from warranty , there is a zen 2 bios for it so it is looking good for it to have a 3600 or 3600x put on it and be OK .
Don,t need it anymore so if it fries not a great loss , but after seeing a b350 ( albeit a different brand ) cope so well with 12 cores , I think I will be fine wit a 6 core . good little linux box !.
now I just need to see if there is any issues with the Debian based linux distroes on the new CPUs .
I still game on an Intel . but maybe not for long if the AMD beats my 8700k ( also on an Asus strix itx board - z370 )
Much spare time to waste and hopefully some fun in the process .

Well if you're VRM bottlenecked never ever use water cooling... Noctuas help with VRM cooling.

@ pony-tail , 6 cores should be fine on B350.

will be using an air cooler so should get some air to the vrms , still waiting for the RMA to finish processing , so I will work it out when the board comes back .
A current gen hyper 212 should be enough ( the black ones don't look to bad either )
