  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/
  15. 1903 here and no issues,works great so far.
  16. This has all the tools to do the ISO onto a usb stick .And it works great. https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10 Also Try this,I did this about a month ago on my old backup rig and it worked flawless. https://www.zdnet.com/article/heres-how-you-can-still-get-a-free-windows-10-upgrade/
  17. Have you tried the new driver released today?
  18. with what they currently have in stock: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 6-core, 12-Thread Unlocked Desktop Processor with Wraith Spire Cooler USD $248.00 G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C14D-32GTZR USD $289.99 ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi) AMD Ryzen 2 AM4 DDR4 M.2 USB 3.1 Gen2 ATX X470 Motherboard USD $274.30
  19. Used this method last month ,worked like a charm: https://www.zdnet.com/article/heres-how-you-can-still-get-a-free-windows-10-upgrade/
  20. I can vouch for this method as well,I just upgraded my old system a few weeks ago from 7 pro to 10 pro using this. using the W7 key activates windows 10.
  21. Have had nothing but excellent service from Corsair.They Even Replaced(not sure what happened to it) an AIO I had no receipt for with a newer AIO. They have Been Excellent. Also Had great Service from Asus on an old 990FX Mobo that died,Had a new one in a week. Both of these issues are from a few months back.
  22. My recent RMA experience : ASUS-fried my old Sabertooth 990fx rev3 mobo,contacted ASUS support via ticket.Sent to ASUS and within a week I had a new one.I only paid shipping to them. Corsair-Again,fried my old H100i GTX aio pump.No receipts,bought used a few years ago,contacted Corsair support via ticket.they confirmed product was still under warranty,all they asked for was any receipts from last 2 years of Corsair products I have bought.Approved and received a new H100i RGB PRO within 7 days,again I only paid shipping to them. All within the last month.I would say I was very happy with the results.
