Ok I finished (mostly) the Phantom Gaming 6 1920X build. Board interface is quite basic. The VRMs keep decent temp (but cramming into a small case with a top mount PSU probably helps). Team Vulcan B die 3000 ram went to 3333 without issue just as it did in the Gigabyte gaming 7. Seems like a serviceable if basic board. Benchmarked quite well. Went and bought another got one more old computer I’m gonna retire.

If they’re pin compatible like the Epyc the new chipset may just because they have New PCIe 4.0 or the chips require more power than the current VRMs can handle, however if that’s the case there’s no proof the mobo vendors won’t push out a BIOS update anyway. That’s like the cheap Asrock systems I’m building (that I really have no intent of upgrading even to the 2nd gen chips, I just want them to function for a long period of time doing their duty as small media servers so I don’t have to mess with them) it hasn’t stopped people from putting 2990s in them even though the VRM really isn’t designed for it, and despite that I haven’t seen anyone complaining they burned one out doing it anywhere. It may mean you can pick up a cheap mobo, I mean an X399 will be fine for a lot of tasks for quite a while.

Same. I went cheap on my RAM, just got a basic Corsair 3000MHz CL15 kit, not able to get past 2666, but it's not a huge deal. Overall I think the board is pretty OK, but a stock 1950X won't stress these VRMs much. I don't really like the way the Fryzen looks, but performance is OK.

I am sure everyone already knows, but 1920x is $200 free shipping from Amazon. Killer deal for a great CPU!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074CBJHCT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Doing my third TR4 build with this around the Taichi M.
I can only recommend Taichi X399M for "little big build".

I picked the smallest TR4 - 1900x because i am fine with 8 physical cores, but i wanted 4 memory channels for some time. Board itself offers 3 full PCI-E 3.0 16x slots and 3 full NVMe 3.0 x4 slots without any need to turn any of them off. Onboard Intel NICs and Wifi are also really good, and quality of basic onboard Realtek is actually stunning.

If you pick Fractal Design Node 804, you would be able to use any PCI-E slot for GPU (two at a time, 3 if you get a riser and a spot where to mount it). On screenshots is AMD FuryX with watercooler. GPU itself is on mainboard while its radiator is in the second chamber - really great for low temperatures. In time I replaced it with AMD Radeon VII which is overall better card, yet i messed airflow a lot and temps on CPU, RAM and VRMs went up.

Did anyone notice Sluggish and slowdowns even on desktop explorer since 1803-1903? I fixed it by disabling Spectre protection using Inspectre program.

Not in relation towards any Ryzen cores, but those were related to Nvidia drivers. Spectre protection since 1803 or Retpoline may cause driver to run out of sync with CPUs. If there is a way how to safely disable this feature it would fix the issue.

I disabled Spectre so Retpoline doesn't work. but this fixed my issue, also had Windows Sandbox slowing my computer to crawl.. don't understand why.

I’m currently trying to do a 1900x since the CPU hit $150 but the second Phantom Gaming was DOA (had a lotes socket, first one was Foxconn so definitely different batches). Just waiting for the replacement. Basically just replacing an old i7-2600 rig. Main reason for the 1900x is I need to run 14 (and possibly more) hard drives on top of the video card. The i7-2600 was fast enough for the work but putting more hard drives online wouldn’t have worked. Should be more than a tad faster too.

Back to my earlier point, seeing as they made enough boards to use both lotes and Foxconn sockets so there probably are quite a few of these budget boards floating around if future availability is a concern.

Build is almost identical to the 1920x build, same $20 case, only differences are ram (really really cheap Casper “electronchn” 2666 from aliexpress), a 980ti, and a 1000w PSU. Both PSUs were from a dirt cheap evga b stock sale months ago initially bought as spares, and I used the 850 instead of the 1000 in the 1920 because the 980ti is much more power hungry. Ultimately 90% of the time it’s going to be a media server, maybe some casual evening games, fancy isn’t really required.

Could someone verify my temps and let me know if those temps look good?
Yep, everything looking nice. Are those temperatures from stress testing?

I would like to ask everyone's opinion whether its still significant to own a TR 1920x at this point in time?? or should I just build a new setup?? I can get 2nd hand for cheaps/on par to a new Ryzen 7 setup but welp the 1920x still got more cores and more power compared to a 3700x probably..

Zen2 were actually much better in single core performance compared to 1st gen. Question is whether you value single or multicore performance and memory bandwidth. My personal reason to go for 1900x (smallest TR) was to have 4 memory channels, while TR4 at that time offered highest boost on low CPU count.

I would build another system based on 19X0 without any hesitation because the last one turned out to be really good, but because there were few issues on microcode level of 1st gen Ryzens i would try 2XX0 or 3XX0 series, if there would be cheap low-core count CPU (8) with 4 memory channels.

any "clue" when the zen3 based threadripper cpu's might come out? is it possible this year like the zen3 based am4 cpus? Only curious cause im eyeing a 3960x at microcenter for 1169$ but didnt want to buy it yet "IF" the new threadrippers will be out within years end. Thanks for any info.

well most likelihood use will be code compilation and a gaming PC at the same time (when I get bored) the reason too I was so enticed on TR was the quad channel memory..well unfortunately the 2nd gen TR's are still sky high from where I am at..

1900X is dirt cheap near me. 133 Euro.

1950x too slow

Greetings everyone

I long suspected there was something off with my 1950x but when I saw corona benchmark results people get with the exact same systems the difference is undeniably too high.
I've never done any overclocking before but apparently some tweaking needs to be done since I freeze after just a couple of seconds of Prime95 on stock settings. The temperatures under load are around 60C.

CPU: AMD YD195XA8AEWOF Ryzen Threadripper 1950X (16-core/32-thread) Desktop Processor
Motherboards: ASRock Socket TR4/ AMD X399/ DDR4 Wi-Fi/A&2GbE/ MicroATX Motherboard (X399M Taichi)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 2400MHz (PC4-19200) C14 memory kit for DDR4 Systems
PSU: CORSAIR RMi Series, RM1000i, 1000 Watt, 80+ Gold Certified, Fully Modular - Digital Power Supply
Cooler: Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3, Premium-Grade CPU Cooler for AMD sTRX4/TR4/SP3 (140mm, Brown)
NVMe2: Samsung (MZ-V7E500BW) 970 EVO SSD 500GB - M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology, Black/Red
GPU: Strix 1080ti

Please give me your suggestions on how to optimize performance if it's at all possible.
