  1. I am a powerline expert. I have been using it for probably 10 years. The latest and outdated powerline is AV2000. I have AV1200 which is the same as AV2000. I get the maximum possible powerline speed via internet which is roughly 150-180mbps down and my upload is 40-45mbps. I can't say what the maximum upload speed is because I am limited to 40-45mbps. You have to make sure your wiring is correct. There are polarity plugs you can get at harbor freight for $5 to check your wiring. You do not want to mix brands or generation of boxes. I use only a two pack which is essentially one connection. When you start adding powerline adapters beyond that speeds can vary and conflicts could happen. The other option is MOCA which is currently version 2 that some say pushes 1gbps. That uses the unused cable lines instead of powerline aka electrical wires in the house. It would be nice if they would update powerline so that you can actually push 1gbps. Supposedly you can sling data between computers between 300-400mbps. But who does that? Most people buy powerline because their wifi sucks. Powerline is much better but can be worse depending on your situation. If you could run a speed test and show your results. I can tell you if there is room for improvement. Make sure you have a gigabit router/switch for your powerline. Otherwise you would have speeds below 100mbps.
  2. I think you want to go with a 32" aka. 31." 1440p 144hz monitor. The extra screen real estate is worth the price of admission vs. a 27"
  3. It will work just fine. Just don't try to OC with the ram. It will run at the slowest speed of the lowest memory kit. If they are the same memory, you should have no issues at stock speeds.
  4. I am starting to think 3733mhz may be the way to go. I have said my motherboard is bionic when it comes to ram. It runs anything and everything that is possible for any given ram stick. This is all on a B350 motherboard. I have run benchmarks. It works but feels slightly shaky.
  5. My memory dividers are still 1:1 with 3800mhz. I can do both. Working on stability right now. New memory kit. Does anybody here run a Ryzen 3000 CPU with 3800mhz memory speeds?
  6. I use override mode. Mine runs 4.2ghz non stop with 1.36v. If you look at your stock CPU. The voltage will go over 1.4v. My vcore stays at 1.36-1.368 according to CPU-Z. I know the 3700x has better binned CPU's than 3600 but that Vcore seems a bit low for stability. Bump it up a bit and you should get 4.5ghz
  7. My 3600 runs 24x7 @ 4.2ghz. Nothing more and nothing less. Under 240mm AIO is runs in the high 50's low 60's while gaming. I turned the fans down for silent cooling. You really need decent cooling for the Ryzen 3000 CPU's. My CPU runs at 1.36v which is locked as well.
  8. 16GB sticks I think are all dual rank. Which means up to 10-15% better performance. If you go with 4 sticks, you can't overclock the ram much at all. So go with very fast ram if you go the 4 stick route.
  9. I would suggest the ASUS ROG Strix X470-F. I don't like it for $180. They used to put it in sale bundled with basically a close to free Gen2 Ryzen CPU. I am somewhat disappointed that AMD is not as aggressive with their pricing of older motherboards.
  10. It's why I keep a Ryzen 1200 as a backup. This is not AMD specific. There were Intel motherboards that had this same problem. It's not as pronounced because Intel likes sticking it to their customers by changing out the chipset every other generation.
  11. i am going out on a limb here and suggesting the 3600 instead of the 3700. Wait for Zen3 for the 4700x. My suggestion, go for the value play 6C 12thread CPU until next generation.
  12. That still doesn't explain why you did not RMA the memory that you say was damaged by the MSI motherboard. Why not kill two birds with one stone and RMA Gskill memory as well?
  13. I am curious why you have not contacted your memory manufacturer? What brand memory is not working? Did you consider you may have damaged your DDR4 memory by trying to insert it backwards or damaged the memory socket on the motherboard putting the memory in backwards and applying too much pressure?
  14. Their suggestions are valid recommending MSI motherboards for AMD builds. People like the tomahawk MSI board. I have carbon gaming pro which is one step above Tomahawk. The bios is excellent. It runs any ram you put in at rated speeds regardless of manufacturer. I have the latest AGESA bios.
  15. The OP asked what a good motherboard is for a B450 motherboard. That is AMD. You are hijacking the thread. Notice my signature lists a B350 motherboard? One generation behind the B450 motherboard.
