  1. I would try reinstalling the drives into your envy like they were originally and seeing if you can boot into them like you used to. From there you can manually search and transfer your files onto a flash drive or something. That seems like the easiest way to me at least.
  2. I see what both of you are saying, but it's something I can upgrade if I ever want/need to for larger or faster storage. Its not only for boot up and general speed, but transferring/loading large VMs and other files for work and school. And most importantly, simply due to me wanting the fastest ssd available in this form factor. I don't agree with paying more for a board that has more VRMs and RGB and other flashy things as I really don't need all that. I will agree that it will get hot when I stick a more powerful processor in it, and I'll post about that when the time comes. It's also not what the point of this thread is. I only mentioned that to clarify why I went after the x570 chipset due to its PCIe 4.0 support, instead of going after a different chipset that's cheaper but with more bells and whistles. I've already got the components and will do the build this weekend, so saying what I should or shouldn't get is irrelevant. I do appreciate the input though, but this is about sticking a crazy processor on the A PRO.
  3. Are you referring to the drive or the board not reaching the peak of what 4.0 can do?
  4. I'm aware of more than the CPU package becoming hot, so I see what you mean. I suppose I'll wait to see how others handle it and see how others configurations turn out. At worst, I could see how the beefier CPUs are handled for a while and return them if my board does throttle it too badly.
  5. That's what I was thinking, thanks for the input
  6. That's true, but since I won't be overclocking daily I wouldn't imagine they would get insanely hot.
  7. Fair points, but I'd rather just go all out with my CPU and get a high end Ryzen 9 that'll be future-proof for a very long time. I'm also going to stick to my Noctua cooler since I'm not a fan of RGB, and Noctua is legendary. I'm not really interested in getting a high-end graphics card, I'm just wondering about compatibility and performance of the CPU here.
  8. That's what I've heard and seen, which is why I didn't think getting a more expensive board made much sense to me.
  9. Hey everyone, I've currently decided to build a new rig and have ordered a 3600 along with a MSI X570-A PRO to try to keep the cost down. My question is whether or not I could eventually upgrade from a 3600 to a 3900x or a 3950x on this type of a board since it's one of the cheaper X570 boards out there. I'm not big into overclocking, but I have a Noctua NH-d15 that could handle the extra thermals if need be. I decided to go with the X570 chipset because I also ordered a PCIe 4.0 SSD, which I'd rather have right now than a better board or better CPU.
  10. The Nitro+ has a bit higher clock speeds and a bit faster ram, and is the slightly better of the two cards. I also have a 590 Nitro+ and it can handle just about anything I throw at it since I only have a 1080p 60hz monitor. They're pretty impressive for the price I would say.
