sneida hi, i have the possibility to switch to a newer board (x570). which one would you go for after owning the vi hero for 2 years? dont need absolute highend, but it should not be "worse" than the vi hero in terms of overclockability, bois update availability and so on...?

fyi - currently running a 3900x on it, works flawlessly with the newest official bios. benchmark results are in line with online published 3900x reviews. 1 thing i can't manage though is getting ram clock higher than 3533 (2x16 gb 3200cl14 b-die with dram calculator safe settings).

userxy79 R7 [email protected],8 GHz on CH VI even yet, does not make any Sense upgrading to 3900x or 3950x <--- (wish) yet.

Comming from AM3 Phenom 955 [email protected],6Ghz on Asus Sabertooth. This was a huge Gain in CPU/RAM Performance. Especially in Singlecore Performance but also very good in Multicore Performance.

Maximum 30% gain, against Ryzen 1th Gen to Ryzen 3th Gen in Benchmarks, in reality its may 10-30% compared across.

And I bought CH IV in foresight, till 2020 predicted by AMD to support AM4 till 2020 Ryzen Gen. In 4 Years, I thought, it could be able to reach 50% improvement compared to Gen. (Ryzen 1xxx) to last Gen. (4xxx). Stupid me...

I think even 4xxx Series or Refresh XT 3xxx Series does not make any noticeable and explainable Reason to Upgrade.

Maybe 3900X(T) or 3950X(T) could be worth it upgrading needed the Power right now if so. But in long sight of view, from my Point of actual Hardware, to skip first (maybe Second Gen of DDR5 Platform) should bring a 100% effordable gain and could be explainable.

Maybe I am wrong, maybe I am not, who knows. Time will tell and past has told

SpecChum Pity there's not a way to set the base frequency and boost yourself, so you can set the 4.1Ghz and 4.8MHz via BIOS on an "old" 3900X.

Unless there is, and I'm just not aware?

P-State won't work as I seem to recall that sets a static voltage?

Seems most, if not all new 3900X's seems to clock nice, but I'm at default anyway, so I'm not too fussed.

All my CCX1 cores hit 4.6GHz or higher



That's great mate! Will share my results this week

Ordered for myself 3900x without bothering about upcoming 5% cosmetic lift in performance too. Wish me it will be the golden one! )


P:S: anybody needs 2600X in perfect condition?

As always.

I didn't even know about the refresh when I ordered, so my conscience is clear

It's what I do for a job actually, well, defending claims of this nature, not making them

Saying that, I got it from Amazon, who don't seem to care even if you admit it's used lol

I actually got it for a decent price as it randomly went down to £414 and I saw it, but it's back up to £439.98 now.

Those voltages are nothing to do with the chipset that temperature is from, the SoC is on the CPU itself.

The thing that is 58C is the chip under the ROG heatsink just below your graphics card - mine gets to well over 60C if I'm gaming for longer periods, it's fine

In fact, it's 53C now and I'm literally only typing on Chrome

You'll be fine.
My current setup after one hour of Prime95 with 90% memory usage hits 51c on Chipset Temp but I'm run a custom loop plus a 120mm fan behind mobo. (left overs from FX9590 lol)

Text file below if it's of any help, maybe something to compare against?
