    Thanks Ratzz. Very happy with it thus far matched with my 1080ti and existing Sata SSD's. NVME drive should hopefully arrive tomorrow to play with.

    I'm planning to play around with RAM timings using the calculator and also to bring it up to 3600MHz.

    What's the difference between PBO and Precision Boost 2? They look mighty similar from what I can tell, mind you I've only done fairly minimal reading thus far and found the PBO settings in BIOS.

    I haven't done a lot of testing on this chip aside from the obligatory Cinebench run which obviously showed significantly higher multi-threaded scores and a higher single core score compared to my 4790k (which was at 4.7Ghz). Might be a poor example to use, but the Far Cry 5 Benchmark showed significantly better min FPS scores and marginally higher average/max fps results which was pretty much in line with what I was expecting for that title.

    Finally got to setup my new PC last night.

    EHageK0VUAAOASE.jpg

    Not finished connecting the old drives and putting the case back together.

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite Wifi
    Ryzen 3700X
    Samsung 1tb 970 EVO Plus nvme
    32gb (4x8gb) G.SKILL TridentZ RGB c16

    And my good old GTX 970 because reasons.

    Only issue I had was the memory ran at 2133mhz and I had to set it to v1.35 so it runs at 3200mhz. Man it's sooooo much faster than my old i5 4690.

    How are you finding the stock cooler in terms of noise? Mine's like a vacuum cleaner. I'm going to grab an AiO ASAP.

    It's rather quite... I ditched the thermal crap that came with it and used some coolermaster stuff i had. It idles at ~32 degrees and hits ~50 under load at the moment, but I havent maxed out all the cores to see how hot it gets.

    But, it's quiter than my AiO that I had on my old system.

    Mine ramps up and down like crazy and noisy AF. It could be my case fans TBH. I must get some time to play with it all.

    What's that case? It looks very roomy.

    Why didn't you just go with 2x16GB and allow for later headroom if needed?

    I bought a 'Alphacool Eisbaer 240mm Liquid CPU Cooler' $195 and are really happy with it. I have it top mounted in a pull config atm and can add push if needed.

    I got it off new egg. The seller listed it wrong so I got it shipped for $0 and $30 less than the non i version.

    The memory was on special. I don’t plan to overclock so I don’t need to worry about having 2 vs 4 sticks and I doubt I’ll need more than 32gb of ram for a while.

    few links to bios' on the page

    "ComputerBase briefly evaluated the AGESA 1.0.0.4 microcode with a Ryzen 7 3800X processor, ASRock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming K4 mother and 32GB of DDR4-3200 memory with CAS timings of CL14-14-14-34. For its tests, the German publication disabled Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) and enabled the memory's XMP profile. The new microcode seemingly helped improve the processor's all-core boost clock a bit. Under the AGESA 1.0.0.3ABBA microcode, ComputerBase's Ryzen 7 3800X ran at 4,245 MHz across all cores. With the AGESA 1.0.0.4 microcode, the octa-core part was able to hit 4,325 MHz, a 1.9% improvement. ComputerBase noted that the single-core boost for the Ryzen 7 3800X remained at 4,550 MHz."
