300 for AMD 2700 + GIGABYTE GA-AX370-Gaming 3 + 250gb HP m2

Recommended Posts

if that's a 5 then that's a good deal, sadly it's the crappy 3


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

The Gaming 3 still sports a good enough vrm and heatsink to handle the 2700 even during p95 loads, when overclocked to the max (1.4v 4.2 ghz) it will be on the edge without proper airflow, but this is still a great combo for the price.

what do you guys mean by the 3?

 

 

3 as in gaming 3. X370 Gaming 5 is much better than the X370 Gaming 3, the latter is essentially the same thing as the Gigabyte B350 stuff. Much worse for overclocking.

I'm not saying it's a bad price (newegg is basically giving you a crap board for free), It's just hard to recommend because most people here end up overclocking their stuff. Oh, and no hope for this board to survive R7 2700 1.4V 4.2GHz overclock, even the slightly better X470 Ultra Gaming struggles a lot needing literally a 120mm case fan for airflow to complete Cinebench. Forget Prime95, unless it's an unstable overclock that causes P95 to shut down workers.

Yeah, but the crap board would still serve well enough around 1.3v 4.1 ghz given enough airflow, and the decent nvme drive ties the combo together nicely.

Nope, not even that. Unless you enjoy exploding high side mosfets because I doubt if the board even has mosfet overtemperature protection. Past cheap gigabyte boards don't.

If you dont want the board though it's a terrible, you can buy the 2700 for $220 and a 250gb m.2 pcie ssd (say, the Adata SX6000 Pro) for $50 separately.
