Advice: Used X99 Mobo or new Ryzen build?

So, looking for a little input on what others think on the situation.

My Mobo died yesterday. Jumped very lightly about 4ft away from PC, the monitors flickered and it died.

Been through all troubleshooting with it, including breadboarding to no avail and no sound from the Mobo speaker. This is a replacement board from my first Krait, which also died randomly and similar symptoms.
I've not been able to hold a stable RAM XMP on it nor bothered with a higher OC than 4Ghz, as my last board died whilst under a 4.4Ghz OC (wasn't stable at 4.5Ghz after a short while).
It also seemed to have some issue with the CMOS since the replacement (and the first one did too), replacing batteries didn't help (or not for long if it did at least).

Anyway, my current options are:

* Buy used X99 with no warranty, no guarantees on how long it'll last and with little confidence in the board's lifespan. I currently have an offer for a Rampage V Extreme (Mobo and backplate only) for £130. I have a couple of others in view for 100-ish.

* Buy new MSI B450 Tomahawk and Ryzen 1600X for £200.


The upside of going with the new build are that I'll have the 3yr warranty, so have some sense of security with that. I know the 5820k is slightly more powerful, and moreso when you have them both at max overclocks, but I've been running my 5820k at 4Ghz at most anyway.

The downside of going Ryzen, is the extra cost (I don't really want to spend anything, so this is all an inconvenience), the fact I'll only have 4 SATA ports once my M.2 is installed, so will have to make a NAS out of an old PC for all my current storage drives (1X SATA SSD, 1X Blu-Ray Drive and 6X internal HDDs occupying 8X SATA currently), and getting the AM4 bracket for my X61. The Software side of Ryzen+Win7 I can deal with (I had to inject drivers and USB3 for my NVMe M.2 installation anyway).

I know it seems a little one-sided with my Pros and Cons, but I lost faith with X99 longevity, even though a RVE board would likely allow me to get a stable OC (or at least stable XMP with 4Ghz+ OC) and I'd have no headaches with the overhaul.

So, what do you good people reckon I should do?

Tl;DR 2nd X99 Mobo died in under 4yrs, should I spend £130 on replacement board and no headaches except board dying, or go Ryzen for £200 with 3yrs of security but headaches in overhaul?

Many thanks.

In Amazon UK you can get the R5 1600 and the Tomahawk for a total of 185 quids. It comes with a capable cooler. I had a 5820K and my R5 1600 is a bit stronger - imo.

Come Ryzen 3000, sell the the R5 and get a newer model.

MSI B450 Tomahawk:- 79.97

R5 1600:- 121.97

R5 1600X: - 119.74

Only 1600+Mobo I saw was the A320m for £185, unless I missed a bundle?

Also figured the 1600X being cheaper by £2, might as well go with that as I have an X61 (once I get the bracket)?

But yeah, that was the positive way i was looking at going Ryzen, there's an upgrade path there. Just issue is the loss of SATA and spending more money in the meantime haha. Appreciate your input.

Yah, at those prices might as well go with the X version. I think the X does not come with a cooler. So, you need the adapter. But, it will definitel y oc better than the non-X.
