I hope this is a good place to get some advice, I haven't posted anything on OC.net for almost 2 years, so I hope I am not breaking any rules.
After 5 years running the FM2+ platform, it's time for me to upgrade. I was patiently waiting for developments around RyZen 3000, and I believe now it's a good time for a new PC from the scratch.
With that said: what's the word about ASUS Pro WS X570-ACE
To me, it seems to be quite durable, none of that RGB blink that I don't need, power delivery also seems to be quite good, and all in all it looks to be a quite decent motherboard.
I plan to drop in 3800x with 0 intention to overclock, and maybe down the road then drop in 3950x when I move away from games to some serious virtualization work.
I have 2 concerns though (generally about platform):
- AM4 socket - AMD said they will support it till 2020, and I am not sure what that means. Is it that some future RyZen 4000 might get a new socket, and it will the end-of-the-road ?
- RAM layout - I want to go full scale, so I plan to run 64 GB of memory. I already read about details, and I should get motherboard with T-topology if I want to utilize all 4 DIMM sockets, as opposed to daisy-chain which favours only 2 DIMMs to be occupied. Is there any way to determine which topology is used on which motherboard ? I read somewhere else that ASUS motherboard were always T-topology, but I don't know if it holds up also today. I found this 7 years old thread
, which discusses this - maybe [email protected]
can comment on this ?
Thanks for any answer to my questions.
