ASUS x470 Prime Pro + R9 3950x

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is there any reason why I shouldn't install an 3950x on my ASUS x470 Prime Pro? I have no current interest in overclocking the cpu and I am currently using a NZXT 360mm AIO.

I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t do it. Just remember to checking your bios if it supports the cpu or you have to upgrade first

And if it has VRM temp sensors, pay attention to them. The board should be able to handle it though as stated above.

Im not sure why you would want a 750$ CPU and not get the most out of it :o But so be it.

Well, you made me think for over a week so i decided to upgrade my motherboard and gpu as well. I went with the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII WIFI and initially went with a EVGA FTW3 Ultra+ 2070 Super but it for some reason appeared to be getting caught on part of the motherboard and wouldn't seat properly. So I RMA'd the EVGA and I am expecting a ASUS ROG STRIX 2070 to be delivered today and will update when i have a chance.
