  1. I only use higher end ASUS boards,but do see a lot of people out there recommend this one: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/b450-tomahawk-max I had great luck with the ASUS TUF boards on my last FX990 boards: https://www.asus.com/ca-en/Motherboards/TUF-B450-PLUS-GAMING/
  2. Ouch!! I would dump that Mobo for a better one. At minimum a B450 for those components,and a better brand.
  3. Just a quick run to compare for you!!
  4. ASUS STRIX 5700XT OC no driver issues since I installed it in Nov.Works like a champ.
  5. Running the ASUS STRIX RX5700XT OC with a 2700X and runs like a champ.no driver issues whatsoever, and am extremely happy with them both.I have had 0 black screens and 0 crashes,plays everything I play with no problems,all benchmarks I have done are stable and great.My complete system specs are below. Wouldn't change it for anything. I haven't played to many AAA games lately,but everything I have played has been flawless.
  6. After almost 20 years exclusively using AMD GPU's,I have had very few,if any driver issues,last year I built a new Ryzen system with a RX580 and then updated to the ASUS RX5700XT OC,I have had 0 driver issues,no crashes or black screens.I have never used or needed DDU or any other driver cleaner,I have always just used the AMD uninstaller with each driver update. I have been reading up on all the issues others are having and am at a loss as to what the issues they are having are caused by,Because not everyone is having these issues. My 5700XT even has the "too short cooler screw"issue,yet my temps are great.
  7. Ah,but he might,I am running Corsair RGB Vengence RGB Pro 3200 Timing 16-18-18-36.However Mine are B dies and are running 14-13-13-28 timings.these can come with both hynix and samsungs as well
  8. Run Thaipoon Burner and check your Ram .My 3200Mhz Kit is samsung B dies .I am running them at 14 13 13 28 1T
  9. your post says you bought 3200 mhz Ram and that's what it will run at. Your CPU is a 3600 not the memory.
  10. Did you uninstall the Nvidia drivers 1st? Then you do a "clean install" of the AMD drivers.
  11. Never use "auto detect" always do it manually from here: https://www.amd.com/en/support
  12. No windows 10 drivers for that GPU, They only go up to Windows 8. Upgrading to a more modern card would be relatively inexpensive considering even the lowest end newer GPU would be far faster than a 4870.
  13. I read a few articles about the Pcie 4.0 bandwidth(not sure exactly where I read it) but current cards don't even use up Pcie 3.0 bandwidth,not even a RTX2080Ti. The only place It benefits anything is Pcie 4.0 SSD's. and the only Pcie 4.0 GPU out is the 5700's. again not too sure on all of it but just something I've read.
  14. It's not just about load,its more about the quality of the components in a PSU, Not all PSU's use quality components,Like anything else,you get what you pay for. Best site for PSU reviews: http://www.jonnyguru.com/
