Looking for help with upgrade for Xeon 1231v3

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Location:

Unfortunately, Czech Republic, where the price difference between R7 3700x and i7 9700k is more than 100 USD which might help explain my choice a little bit.

 

Purpose:

Gaming (no streaming, no video editing, no photo editing or I dunno whatever else). I want to upgrade to something that can run AC Odyssey in 1440p ultra above 60 FPS at least 95% of the time (which it does not with the current CPU). In terms of budget, I would rather not spend more than what 3700X with the AC Carbon and 3600MHz CL16 RAM would cost (and the i7 9700k with a Z390 board and a cooler would definitely go for way more, at least around here). The question is, do I even need those? Or would I be better of just saving a few bucks, getting for example R5 3600 now and upgrading to something like R5 4600 later?

 

Current Build:

  • CPU - Xeon 1231v3 (with Scythe Kotetsu)
  • GPU - MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming Trio
  • MB - Asus Vanguard B85
  • RAM - Crucial Ballistix 4*4GB DDR3 @ 1600 MHz
  • SSD - Crucial MX500 500GB
  • PSU - Evga Supernova G2 650W
  • Display - Acer XF270HUA

Upgrade:

  • CPU - Ryzen R7 3700x (or Ryzen R5 3600?)
  • MB - MSI B450 Gaming PRO Carbon AC (or MSI B450 Tomahawk?)
  • RAM - Honestly, no idea. Is 3200MHz CL16 good enough? is it possible to OC that kind of RAM to 3600MHz? Or should I get the 3600MHz right away?

Yeah, crucial ballistix 3000mhz can OC to 4000mhz. 3200mhz should be fine.

I would go with the Gaming Pro Carbon due to Intel LAN (and WiFi if you ever need it) and it looks better, and it’s heatsinks are a little better and it has more power stages (albeit in parallel)

 


Beta!  X570 VRM + Features list (PM me if you want to help) 

 

Will prob be making an X570 "tier" list when that is completed.

Some Custom Loop Questions, please help answer them.

I assume that you mean the BLS2K8G4D30AESBK ? They seem very reasonably priced.

Yeah, this guy got 3600 with a similar kit.

Ok, but is that like common thing to run these Ballistix 3000MHz 15-16-16 at 3600? Another option I found is grabbing these https://www.amazon.com/TEAMGROUP-T-Force-Xcalibur-PC4-32000-TF6D416G4000HC18EDC01/dp/B07G27W7G4 (elsewhere obviously, I just wanted to give a link in english). And running them at lower frequency and timings? I suppose that should be doable as well?
