    Ram compatibility for 2700x

    I'm very interested in OCing as I do it now with my 3930k. I've seen people get up to 3600 for some extra performance. Is it just an issue with some boards? I'd like to squeeze out every last drop of performance over the next few months before I drop money into Zen 2.

    Ram compatibility for 2700x

    I know CL typically affects ram performance, but with Ryzen the speed is the main issue with the ram for infinity fabric. Is there any benefit to look for 3200mhz ram with a lower CL? Like 14 vs 16 for example.

    Ram compatibility for 2700x

    That's what everyone seems to be saying, guess I'll give it a try
  4. Hi everyone, I am looking into getting a Ryzen 2700x and I know nothing about the ram compatibility. I would like to get something around 3200 or 3466mhz. I'm wondering if something from G.Skill Trident Z would work or Corsair vengeance pro RGB. I would really like some RGB ram. Ive I tried to do some research but I know Ryzen ram compatibility has improved overtime and couldn't find anything with recent info. If anyone can help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    AM4 for Zen 2?

    I doubt the 9900k will command a big sale because Ryzen will be neck and neck in performance, or better. The reason I am now thinking of going 2700x over 9900k was because I also have a mini itx PC that I use for lans, and its in dire need of an upgrade as well. So I could just rotate the 2700x out of the main PC and put it in the mini ITX when im done with it. I really like the 9900k, but I feel its massively old architecture will hold it back. It also isnt much of an overclocker and it runs incredibly hot. I was holding out for it for over a year thinking it would easily reach 5.2 when it was announced. But I heard it can struggle to hit 5.0 on all cores without huge temperature increases. I just feel like intel is so far behind in chip design atm. But I think getting Ryzen on my main PC and then putting the 2700x into the mini itx is the better way to go. Not really sure though.

    AM4 for Zen 2?

    I will need the 8 cores. I currently use a 3930k (4.4ghz)
  7. Hey everyone, I have been deciding between a 9900k but I have slowly been settling on maybe getting a 2700x. Now I know Zen 2 is coming out in 2019 on 7nm and that AMD said that all Zen chips would be on AM4 until around 2020. I was thinking instead of getting a 9900k, settling with a 2700x and then upgrading the CPU to Zen 2 when that arrives, but I am worried about missing features that would come with Zen 2. Ive tried to find any official information, but are there any major features that are arriving on Zen 2 that an old board would miss out on or will features be supported (I doubt it) by just plug and play.

    Could my PC handle 1440p 144hz?

    I do like widescreen but I think its a little out of my price range lol

    Yeah the u have more room for voltage on Ryzen. I'd probably go in manually and manage it all myself.

    Cool, might be a motherboard feature?

    I think it only boosts the first two cores, I heard it can get 4.2 across all cores easily. But not everyone likes OC'ing

    Yeah tell me how it runs, have you overclocked it?

    Yeah, thats what I have been wanting, but it might not be until later in the year because Zen 2 architecture will be going towards server rollout first. So while it might release early, it might not actually hit until midsummer or something. And I really wanted higher frames for BFV (I am a BF fanboy). I am almost debating buying a Ryzen 2700x, OC to 4.2 with some high speed ram, and then just buying Zen 2 when it releases as I am pretty sure it will work with AM4 motherboards. I think in the end that would still be cheaper than buying a 9900k and motherboard.

    That is what I am in the middle of deciding. I have the money for it right now as I have been waiting for release of the 9900k since the rumors came out around a year ago. But I am a little dissappointed in its performance/Overclocking performance. It also runs hot as shit and it just feels like I would be investing in a modified old school CPU if that makes sense. As soon as 7nm/10nm hits I feel we are going to get much better performance from CPU's. And I feel like spending 800 dollars on a mobo/CPU combo on an old architecture is just kind of a waste. I was hoping the CPU would have some more OC headroom to balance that out.

    The 3570k does turbo boost on two cores at 3.8ghz (if I am not mistaken) and 3.6ghz on 4 cores. If you overclocked it to even 4.2 ghz on all cores, you are looking at around a 12%-15% performance improvement overall. Not amazing, but free performance. There are a lot of guides for this sort of thing, and its scary but as long as you don't put too much voltage on and watch temps, you are generally okay.
