  1. Googled and didn't know that existed. Thanks and will be signing up to receive a kit.
  2. This weekend I drove an hour to Microcenter because I was having PC issues and thought it was a good time to upgrade. My current setup is amazing but from 2013 and is starting to get difficult for video editing (i7 4960X and Asus Rampage IV Black). Well, they (and LTT) convinced me to purchase the 3700x with a ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming motherboard. I've read on various areas though that the only way to use the cpu with the board is to update the bios on the board which can only be done via another AMD cpu? Is that true? Thanks. ps - I'm excited for the new system. I just want to make sure I can use it out of the box before I get everything installed in my system. Would rather return it unopened to Microcenter and not make them deal with something open box if it won't work out of box.
  3. Yeah, I'm updating from a 4960x from 2014 and asus rampage black iv from the same year.
  4. yeah the 570 board was $150 more I think.
  5. I think I had crossed out that gigabyte board because it's newegg reviews weren't great. Probably should have looked into it a tad more. I was kinda stressed about spending so much money. My PC has suddenly been having a lot of issues so wasn't ready to spend $600.
  6. well the 3900x is out of my price range unless it's a crazy ton better? like is it just a tad or is it worth the extra $170, cause I didn't know if I would get my money out of it...
  7. Thanks. Yeah, I had a post in the build a pc section and some of the users told me to go the amd route. I have limited knowledge of amd though but they said it's amazing so yeah.
  8. Which is better? It would be used for a mix of some gaming (Rocket League mostly...) but mostly video editing in Premiere and After Effects? I talked myself into going the AMD route (Microcenter employees were the final convincing) but spending that much money has me wanting to make sure I did the right thing now that I'm home.... AMD Ryzen 7 3700X + ASUS ROG Strix X470-F for $460 or Intel i7-9700k + ASUS ROG Strix Z390-E for $510?

  10. Basically. And I only really need 32gb for editing video in premiere and after effects.
  11. None. I just don't know much about ryzen and the Intel was on sale.

  13. Do these parts (imgur link) work together and are they a good price? They're open box which slightly worried me but microcenter is a reputable seller sooo.... Any other recommendations? The below would be the build based on some of the stuff I currently have. Would my current cooler still work?

  14. Will do. Can a small battery cause that to happen though?
