Mobo for 3950x with no WIFI and not interested in OC, that has debug leds?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was almost decided on Aorus Elite but I think it would be a good idea to have leds that tell you whats wrong. I haven't built a PC in 10 years, so I would really like that. I just cant find one that has no wifi or wireless crap and has the debug leds... anyone knows? Also I will be putting a noctua dh15 there so it has to fit. Case is Define r6.

You're looking for a high end board with lack of features?

 

Why a D15 if you're not even overclocking?

 

A lot of this just doesn't add up

wireless is not a feature

 

because i dont like noise

Most of the high end boards come with wireless, because it's not very expensive(relative to the rest of the board) to include an average gigabit wireless adapter, especially on an expensive board. You can just get one of those wireless boards but not connect the wireless antennas.

 

Also, NhD15 compatibility is based on RAM height and case clearance, not motherboard. If you have short RAM and the whole cooler fits in your case then any motherboard will work.

 

Getting NH-D15 with 3950x without overclocking will be slightly overkill but fine if you value acoustics. Just remember that overclocking/tightening timings on your RAM is pretty important, if you want a 'shortcut' way that won't give you the best overclock but a decent one, then you should check out this video

You could get the Crosshair VII Hero non-wifi.

X470, but handles my 3950X like a champ. No chipset fan to worry about.

You can turn literally every LED off including board LEDs. Diag will only come on when needed.

I dont want any OC. I plan on using the build for a good 10 years like i did with my q6600.

 

I will buy a new gpu in 5 years or so, when it becomes a bottleneck for next gen VR for sim racing

 

thats all

 

the ram i want to buy is this one:

G.Skill F4-3600C16D-32GTZNC

 

also, isn't this what im looking for?

This one is very similar to aorus elite, no WIFI version and comes with debug leds. Looks like we have a winner.

I found this, how do you rate this?

builzoid said on a video its similar to aorus elite, gets the job done and has the troubleshoot leds, sounds good?

The only motherboards that can't overclock Ryzen are A320, and there's not a single A320 motherboard I'd recommend with a 3950X

 

so you'll always have the option


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

so im looking at this one:

 

https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/TUF-GAMING-X570-PLUS/

 

can anyone tell me where the debug leds are? i cant see any leds.. I dont get it. consider that my computer is old and has a speaker for debuging, I dont understand how the leds are supposed to be located at and work. what are the codes to know whats going on? for instance a single beep means something, two beep means another thing, repeated beeping another...

Looking at the manual, they are right next to the RAM.

I've never had to use debug LEDs though.

Good ole process of elimination works just fine.

If you use the picture and the picture from the manual above it should become more clear.

The memory thing isn't really an OC, it's just tightening timings. It's literally free performance, following the video should not cause any crashing or anything because the tightening of timings are based off the RAM modules(manufacturer, binning etc.).

 

It's pretty much idiot proof, because a program tells you exactly what to set each setting to. Takes about 5 minutes, and you should get noticeable performance increase. No trial and error is needed(unless you are part of a very small percentage of people who got faulty RAM or something).

 

I've told my friend to do this, he doesn't even know how to open task manager with ctrl+shift+esc and he managed to do it.

 

As for CPU OC, Ryzen tends to already be pushed to the max clock(the boost algorithm is pretty good at pushing the CPU to the maximum) so chances are you won't get much OC at all.

They seem like similar boards, and both will likely be great.

 

I went with an Aorus myself because of the Intel wired LAN (which I use most of the time, and over the years I've found them more compatible/reliable than Realtek), the newer audio chipset, front USB-C availability, plus a few other bits and pieces, but there might be features on the ASUS that you prefer.

 

Don't worry about the HDMI/DP video output on the boards, you won't be using them with a higher end CPU / Navi GPU.
