    I was preparing to buy a 3600 in the next few weeks to replace the 1700, But the 3300X now looks interesting. (gaming only)

    now that 4000 series is no go for B350 a 3000 series chip will need to set me for the next couple years

    3300X or 3600 from a 1700? or just save up more and look at a 3700X?

    Well you could pretty much move from the 1700 to the 3300x without having to spend anything after selling your old chip ha ha

    yea I noticed that, a 1700 goes for about 200bucks,

    I could try a 3300X for a few months,

    but I would need to upgrade bios to 6.30 and ASRock site says "NOT Recommend" for Summit Ridge,

    what does this mean? my 1700 wont work properly after I upgrade the Bios?

    Be aware that both the new consoles will field 8 core Zen 2 parts. So pretty much all the game engines will be optimised for 6+ cores. 4 core parts might be ok in todays engines, but in a couple of years time, they could be struggling.

    Sounds like it. Upgrade to an earlier version with ryzen 3000 cpu support, with AGESA ~1.0.0.3 ABBA or similar. It sounds like the 3300X will boot on older AGESA, and then you can flash a newer.

    Edit: But any problems with that bios and 1.0.0.4 might just be boost or boot speed related, so maybe doesn't matter for a quick upgrade.

    yea, I built my current system with the 1700 due to multicore utilization for future games,

    I already updated my Bios to 5.8 (1.0.0.1) so it can take the 3600, but everything after that gives that same warning.

    Out of curiosity, what about an 1850x? Thinking of upgrading also but not seeing much on these forums in that group

    Just go 3950x that's pretty future proof :D

    what is a 1850X ?

    I don't think the 3950x will work well in my cheap B350 Board, the VRM's would probably overheat and die,

    3300X or 3600 are the main options,

    leaning towards the 3300X and then if that does not work I can move that to my son's PC (ryzen 1200)

    3300x looks like the go to chip, I probably should have waited for it as I only game but I guess the 3600x is a little more future proof with more cores and threads since I tend to skip a few generations between upgrades.

    That's why I only got a 3600 on my last upgrade. I want to see what Zen 3 has to offer.

    This "feature" is not just limited to AMD Ryzen motherboard. My eGPU does this too with a macbook attached (only thunderbolt 3 computer I have). When the computer awakens from sleep, the fans rev, but nowhere near full speed. Tomorrow/friday judging by Aus post I will have my toys, so I will test both cards in the MSI ACE and see if the 5700XT does the same thing.
