Thanks, but it was the chook whom posted the links to the spreadsheets.
i grabbed the YT vids you posted too.
i already had the big mobo sheet but it was a bit lost in the noise, added chooks VRM link and moved some stuff around.
hopefully its easy enough to find info in. more work required...
im guessing after 5/11 I'll need to add a heap more info
Hey mate, I have that board - except the model with wifi. It's great. Just got a new BIOS that states: "Update AMD AGESA ComboV2 188.8.131.52 B for performance optimized on Ryzen 5000 series processors". So it's good to go. The previous one had the preliminary support for 5000, but this is the latest and greatest - so it'll suit your needs perfectly and slot a new Ryzen 5000 in without any dramas.
The VRMs on this thing are insane. Bigger than my Crosshair VI Hero - couldn't even fit my air cooler, had to go out and buy a AIO. It's very smooth, ram reaches the same OC as it did on my Crosshair VI Hero (3200 getting to 3333).
Note - that VRM list doesn't include any B550 boards (as far as I could tell?).
Can confirm, b450 pro carbon VRM doesn't like watercooling in my case because it means there is SFA airflow over the VRM heatsinks. Thinking about going back to a traditional case..
What about a VRM water block?
wouldn't a rear fan helped with the airflow?
No where to mount a rear fan on a core p3.
Maybe I could get away with getting a testbench gooseneck and attaching it to the case to have a fan pointed at the VRMs
Ryzen 5 5600X (6c/12t) at 469 AUD MSRP
Ryzen 7 5800X (8c/16t) at 699 AUD MSRP
Ryzen 9 5900X (12c/24t) at 859 AUD MSRP
Ryzen 9 5950X (16c/32t) at 1249 AUD MSRP
Just jumping ahead of the bandwagon
I might wait for reviews but the 5600x is an interesting proposition at that price. I wonder if I would notice the loss of 2c/4t when all I do these days is game, probably not.
Honestly I know what you mean mate, super excited to see what the little 6 core can do.
In other news; passmark results from a 5950X briefly appears before going away. Also geekbench ST results equals a 9900K at 6Ghz.
even the 5600x beats the 10900k, thats insane if true,
looks like amd are pricing accordingly too, sad to see them charging more but glad they are finally in a position to demand it
I have the same board as you and it is fantastic. For what is considered a mainstream board I am very happy with it. Runs my 3900X with no complaints or problems. Didn't know the new AGESA 184.108.40.206 was out yet. Only upgraded to the 220.127.116.11 a couple of weeks ago. Looks like I have work to do.
You are correct as the VRM specific spreadsheet predates the release of the B550 chipset. The one I linked under Features has the B550 boards and also information about the VRM's on each one.
They are by no means over priced for what you are getting but I am not super keen to drop AUD859 on a CPU when I have a GPU to buy first .
Seen that on Facebook just now... 5950X... Very tempting, providing we don't have massive price gouging going on. I'm guessing we will .
Tis the season....
Soooo I might've fat fingered the numpad on that a little, it's 1249 MSRP, not 1349
add to cart 5800x and 5950x
also add to card X570i STRIX ITX
FS 3900X 3700X and B450i STRIX
Expensive times ahead!
Hahaha wasn't just you. AMD stuffed up on the post as well.
The 5950X with an MSI B550M Mortar, Just under $1500. Sooooooo tempting. Not sure if I could push the 16 core to it's limits, might end up getting the 12 core. Have to wait on DaVinci Resolve benchmarks before I decide, I'm guessing it'll be a similar difference as the 3900X vs 3950X 7 - 20% depending on the work load.
Yeah, that was me on both counts
Good to see prices are dropping already
Slightly less than my expectations.. but then again room for a bit of early adopter gouging
