"Inari" Ryzen 3900X Build Log

Decided to upgrade my 6700k-based rig a bit ago to help with chewing through photography import/export (Which is multithread/multicore and THE place i watch the 6700k just choke to death) Decided on the R9 3900X because I feel its a superb price/performance for productivity tasks. Also 4k gaming because thats a thing

The theme for the build is "Overkill" to an extent... I've already ordered everything and im planning to make some videos and everything to share with folks And Benchmarks!

I'm on the fence right now on upgrading to a 2080 Ti or not, kinda waiting on the 2080 Super benchmarks to go out before I decide definitively on it...The one area i honestly would love some advice right now


Without further ado, my parts list:



Case - Corsair Crystal 680X

Power Supply - eVGA 1000watt T2 + Cablemod cable kit

CPU - Ryzen 9 3900X 12c/24t

Cooler - Corsair H115i RGB Platinum

Motherboard - MSI X570 GODLIKE

Ram - 32gb Corsair Dominator RGB Platinum DDR4 3600 CL16

Graphics - Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti 11gb (Reuse)

SSD Storage - 2x 960gb Corsair MP510 nVME, 1x Samsung 860 EVO SATA (Reused)

HDD Storage - 2x Toshiba X300 5TB 7200rpm

Misc - 5x LL140 fans, Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, Custom sleeved SATA cables, probably grabbing the Corsair LED strips and the Corsair commander


Most expensive build I've ever done by far, Kinda having a "Oh god ive spent HOW MUCH ON THIS" moment but I know its worth it

Sony A7 III, 55mm f/1.8 Zeiss, 90mm f/2.8 G Macro, 70-200mm f/2.8 GM, Sigma 150-600mm C + MC-11

Nice. i have been looking at the 680x and have so many times wanted to hit the buy button on Amazon. The only thing holding me back it my 780t has optical drive bays which i still use. Cant wait to see your completed build.

Heres a short video of it all up and running:


I am so glad I went with the 680X, it looks beautiful in reality and i keep getting compliments on what a clean lovely build it made for. Its also very. VERY quiet in reality!

SO I'll also post an update:

-I switched from the MSI Godlike to the Gigabyte Aorus Master because of software issues on the Godlike plus the fact I had -serious- performance issues on it (Like, i was nailing about 2500-ish average in Cinebench R15 on the Godlike VS 3100 on the Gigabyte which is average for most 3900X cpus) Overall, much happier with the Gigabyte board, I'd have gone for the Aorus Xtreme except it wasnt in stock

-That said, not-all-core turbo is still a little wonky on it, albeit far better than the Godlike was, in my case I ended up having to revert back to the shipping bios because of it, chipset fan CAN be slightly noisy when gaming but when idle its quiet. With the latest bios and AGESA my CPU was functionally locked to a 4.2ghz all core OC at all times (it never throttled down when idle or ramped up above that no matter what I did with power plan settings or installed software) shipping bios (F4 in my case) everything runs fine. I get all core turbo up to 4.2 depending on load and can get 4.45 on lightly threaded. I'm lucky I suppose. On top of that temps never break 70 which is such a nice thing since my old 6700k was routinely nailing 80s at the end

-I had some pretty bad stability issues, I think I've got them narrowed down now, Something about my Soundblaster G5 external sound card was NOT playing nice with the system. Was getting really bad static and background noise from it that would get increasingly worse, followed by audio drop outs, glitches, then the entire system locking up, disconnecting it and going to onboard audio solved the issue so far, Also I cant keep my GPU at the prior overclock despite the 680X allowing it to run almost 20 degrees C cooler, I am thinking it might be a quirk with PCIe 4.0. Its fine with me since my 1080 Ti had little OC headroom but just thought I'd throw it out there for anyone else

-Benchmarks have been interesting. It absolutely destroys my 6700K in my photography workload, Its nice to not have my system slow to an unusable crawl while processing photos. Import is also a breeze now as converting to DNG files takes a fraction of the time as before. I converted 1100 photos to DNG in about 20 minutes. My 6700k could take over an hour for 500! On top of that I can actually use the thing while its working.. Utterly speechless on how impressed I am

-Game wise, its about even with the 6700k but I will say I notice less occasional stuttering and hitching that the 6700k could experience, Most noticably in BFV which is now very silky smooth. Albeit I game at 4k so in so many cases I'm GPU bound so keep that in mind

Despite some of my teething issues I've been quite impressed by it Really good little CPU
