Need to finalize the build within 24 hours

Hello everyone this is my parts list for my 3950x build
( https://pcpartpicker.com/list/WbMt3t )
Wanted to know if you were in my shoes what would you change?

Is the cooler enough for an oc'd 3950x?

Is the Mobo really as good as an overclocker as a hero/impact?

The ram will be running at 3800/3600 with tight timings.

Case will be bought locally as shipping will be outrageous.

Thanks a lot.

You could probably swap it with the ASUS TUF Gaming X570.

Non-wifi: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/whM...ming-x570-plus
Wifi: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dmG...570-plus-wi-fi

The Wi-fi is actually cheaper right now because the non-wifi at $165 is out of stock right now.

Also unless you can benefit from a PCIe 4.0 SSD (e.g. all you do is disk intensive workloads like video editing for very, very large files) then I would just stick with PCIe 3.0 SSDs, specifically the Phison E12 + Toshiba BiCS TLC clones.

https://www.overclock.net/forum/355-...2-toshiba.html

I'd get two of the 2TB Pioneer APS-SE20G if you really need 3-4TB on 2 slots: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tBj...e-aps-se20g-2t

For PSU: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/4pG...u-ionp-660p-bk

I honestly don't even see a reason to go past 80 PLUS Gold because that efficiency doesn't really get you anything. Unless you're running some server farm where those small efficiency gains will actually translate to large savings, I wouldn't bother. The good platinum and gold units usually cost the same though.

...your cooling solution should be more than sufficient for stock, but 3950X react very well to big cooling. If your locally-sourced case allows for it size-wise, you might try to shoot for a performance 280mm or even thick 360mm cooler

Yea can easily go for a 280mm and 360mm (there are cases that will support them)

+ I don't mind the price jump from the tuf to the unify if it will clock and Handel the ram better.

I use solar panels for most of the day which made me just go for that seasonic unit + it's just a difference of less than 15$

Thanks

Doesn't make a difference. The TUF uses the same VRM as the Strix E and F Vcore side (-E has a different SoC VRM but that doesn't really matter since that VRM isn't powering an iGPU like on the APUs).

All of the 400 and 500 series motherboards use daisy chain for the memory trace topology (it's more or less a requirement by AMD). Unless the board has components over the memory traces to add noise, they'll all give more or less the same maximum frequencies and minimum timings. You're only really limited by your CPU's IMC.

I see, so basically won't lose any overclocking prowess and would cost around half the price.

Thanks

pretty sure the AsRock X570 Taichi is T-Toplogy.

daisy chain is better for 2 DIMM OCing, T-Topology is good for 4 DIMM. Daisy Chain is dog poo at OCing 4 DIMMs (my Z390 Taichi won't run more than 2 DIMMs above 3633, two DIMMs I can run 4266) so I have a hard time believing that AMD required it...

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)

I think this is the case too, I remember there were a Google spreadsheet that had an insane amount of info on x570/470 mobos

Hmmm my mistake then. Probably just the recommendation.
