New Ryzen 3600 RX 5700 xt build Question

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

So I’m building a new pc and PCPartPicker is saying I might have an error. I’m not concerned about the Mobo error since this is a max board. Mainly fitment issues and was wondering if anyone could let me know If I’m good to go! I’m thinking that a part just doesn’t have its dimensions in the system so I should be fine. I have attached pics of everything and the warning. Thanks in advance!

edit: I am also interested in any suggestions

Yeah, the build is completely fine max series boards support zen2 CPUs out of the box. 

PCPP categorises this max series board as a b450 board (which it actually is). And most of the b450 boards don't have out of the box compatibility. PCPP generalises most of the stuff.

 

Changes that I'll recommend...

  1. Skip the Corsair cooler and upgrade the CPU to 3700x. It has got RGB as well. Also, it is a pretty decent cooler considering it is a stock cooler.
  2. Go with tomahawk max / a pro max / gaming plus max / mortar max any one of the above instead of pro vdh max.
  3. Go with 3600mhz cl16 ram kit. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jBZzK8/gskill-ripjaws-v-16-gb-2-x-8-gb-ddr4-3600-memory-f4-3600c16d-16gvkc
  4. You can get away with silicon power a80 for the SSD. It's slightly faster and cheaper.
  5. Get the MSI Rx 5700xt gaming x instead of the gigabyte one. It is one of the best cooled Rx 5700xt and is $10 cheaper. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jbK2FT/msi-radeon-rx-5700-xt-8-gb-gaming-x-video-card-radeon-rx-5700-xt-gaming-x

PCPP does not check for the Max name, it just sees them as B450

I would prioritize RGB differently if it were my build:

  • Went for the B450 Gaming Pro Carbon. Solid VRM board with nice looking RGB elements. No need for a $20 overspend on an RGB SSD.
    • This board supports a BIOS flash. So it isn't BIOS ready right out of the box, but you don't need another CPU, just a flash drive!
  • Very sexy RGB case with great airflow and a slot to mount your radiator on top. 
  • The H100i is such an overspend. I generally like air over liquid cooling, but the ML240L is a solid RGB AIO for a great price. (And the fans will sync easily with your case fans.)
  • I opted for the difference in SSD pricing to go toward a much better cooler on the GPU. For just the $20ish more, you've got a very high performing and very quiet unit with the NITRO+.

Thank you for your reply and I’ve been thinking that same exact things about the cooler so that confirms that! I forgot to mention that I already have the 280x case, so I need a matt form factor board and mortar Max’s aren’t very available in the US :/ as well as other MSI arsenal series matx max boards. So that is why I was looking at a pro vdh max board. Let me know what you think about the board situation. And thanks for all the advice!

Thank you so much for taking the time to give me all this advice! I forgot to mention above that I already have the case so I need a matx board. I am also based in the US so getting a mortar max is a pin unless I spend $150 on eBay. Which it should be $80-$90. Let me know if you have any other suggestions! Thanks again!

There is also the B450M Steel Legend to be considered, then!

However it doesn't have a BIOS flash or MAX version.

That is the board I have in the build pics above! I think that is the way to go for me at the moment. Thanks for the input!

Based on what I’ve been seeing I’m thinking the MSI b450m pro vdh max is a little better board based on reviews

Don't get me wrong. The pro vdh max is a pretty good board, but mortar max would be slightly better.

Pro vdh max will be enough for a 3600 with moderate OC.

What about using the 3700x with the msi b450m pro vdh Max? I’m pretty sure it’ll be fine. I want the b450m mortar max but it’s just not available in the US

@VEXICUS@trevb0t So far I have decided to go with the mortar max board, the Corsair 280x case and just purchased the 550W TX550M power supply made by corsair. Is this forsure enough power for the 3700x and 5700 xt Sapphire Nitro+? I have checked other places and seems to be okay but then I read the Nitro+ recommends 600W plus of power?

It should be fine, but if you're gonna do some overclocking, you might want to bump up the power supply to a 650W.

550W is fine for any single GPU PC. You'll be just fine!
