No worries, and you should go for it! I want to so badly, but I'm pretty GPU bottlenecked at the moment.

On a different note, I was super confused when I saw the post and the profile picture. "I haven't posted recently in this thread," was my first thought!

I went from a FX-8320 system to a R7 1700 on a X470.

No formats, i just cleaned the old drivers (Hidden) from Device manager. All good.

miklkit My system was running very well in late 2017 but then came the software bugs and it took a big hit in spring 2018. By the summer I managed to get most of the performance back. Again this spring software "upgrades" caused another big hit.

With 1903, new chipset drivers, gpu drivers, and other tweaks the performance is back and in fact this time the I/O performance might be a little better than ever. This 1700 @ 3.9 can score 3907 in Cinebench R20.

Nighthog I've noted performance regressions as of late as well. I think it has to do with some Windows update changes.

At first when the 1903 build came out performance increased but some updates later performance became much worse in the last weeks. Something is amiss I reckon.

/run to run variance, not consistent good results as before.

Contagion I'm having a strange issue. I just purchased the new 3700x and I wanted to be able to compare cinebench scores to test out how the new chip will do on an x370 board. The problem is that my cinebench scores are way lower than they should be. I've tried both R15 and R20 and they give a similar underscoring.

It's been a long time since I've ran Cinebench so I can't comment on if the scores have always been like this. Currently I'm running some old LPX sticks that I've had since before Ryzen was a thing. They are running at their XMP profile of 3200 however, never had a problem.

As you can see (in yellow) my scores are way lower than they should be. My 3.9Ghz OC is lower than what should be the "official" stock speed (in green). I also test my chip at stock and it was way worse. Any ideas? Like I said, both R15 and R20 reflect these lower scores.

I should also mention that I am running a custom loop. The temps get in the 60s but never higher.

Strileckifunk Anyone out there still rocking a X370 board tried dropping a Zen2 chip in yet? Figuring some of ya' first gens might still be running those boards with these new chips.
