What was I saying about a crap CPU?
N7 silicon has improved over time. You might also have managed a slightly better mount.
Looks like they pulled 2603 and replaced it with 2607... I did read somewhere that any AGESA version that is not 1.0.0.X is a beta version - not sure if that is correct.
First world problem, I have about a zillion USB drives lying around here and can't find a single one . As soon as I do I'll update.
I am actually already on 2603, I wonder why they pulled it? It's caused me no problems and seems to help a tiny bit with RAM stability.
EDIT: I actually do have one USB drive handy, but it's a fancy 32GB Nitro+ themed anniversary one which I got with my Nitro+, in its own fancy gift box. I figure that if it remains a virgin it *might* appeal to any potential buyer of the GPU if I were to sell it some day. Since I don't need the drive, I'm never going to use it. Others might find them collectable or something one day...
dont have a micro sd you can rob out of a phone or something and shove in a usb adapter to do the job?
ive had that problem with usb drives, now i have em all chained and looped together like a bunch of real keys lol makes it a bit easier to find.... have some of those spring clasp danglers ive robbed and used so i can unclip the one i want when i need it. still havent found the old drive that occasioned the change yet .../sigh
I never scored one of those.
Hello! I'm shopping for a new PC and am wondering whether I should settle with a R5 3600X or get the R7 3700X?
Will definitely save money with the R5, and will be mostly using the PC as a workstation + gaming at 1440p (using gtx1070 for now, waiting for 3000 series).
Am thinking the R7 might give me a bit more future proofing as I don't intend to overclock and am also going for an mITX build with a 240mm X53 AIO.
I'd get a 3600 (non x) and upgrade to zen3 later, or 3700x if you don't want to change cpus in say 2 years time when a 12 or 16core zen3 is cheap. I know you said no overclocking but you can raise the power budget on a 3600 for a bit more performance, cpu still decides it's clocks and voltages so no stability issues to worry about.
Not on all boards such as b450 gigabyte boards
I agree, non-X 3600 is the better pick. But actually, if you're happy to buy a zen3, I would probably skimp out even more with just a 3300X. If you don't need the cores for your workstation duties, it will probably do just as well at gaming.
Yes.. yes you should
wait till zen3 is out
1usmus new tool. Automatic per ccx overclocker. Results ofcause would depend on your silicon
damn it, beaten lol.
Wow this looks like a great tool! Can't wait to give it a go.
Properly disappointed it isn't available yet, i've been lazy with OC since moving to Ryzen as the gains never seemed big or significant for any effort...though i guess a few hundred Mhz on 12 cores does add up
I haven't bothered either, mainly because for what I'm doing and playing, the 3600 is a beast.
But I wan't it noooow!!!
Ha, that's what I like about my 2600X! see no reason to upgrade in the cpu area. But then I'm fussy with my choice of games.
So given the current crazy prices for z97 boards and 4790k chips on ebay it looks like I could do a no cost swapover to a 3300x + B550, or get a 3600(x) for a little more. Not expecting any real performance gains but it would be good to trade old for new.
This would become my second PC so not really concerned about waiting for 4000 series. Has anyone else done a similar swap? Trading a six year old CPU for brand new is pretty appealing. Also just looking for a project I think!
Going from a 4790k to even the 3300X will be an upgrade, if you can do it for little to no cost then it's a no brainer imho, personally I'd be leaning more towards the 3600 over the 3300X but completely depends on what games you play.
