x58 motherboard is slowly fading away... X570

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Call of Duty warzone wouldn't let me play on my Xeon w3670 /w a 970 GTX video card.  It's hard to believe that Intel Core i3-4340, 2 core / 4 thread (Intel's fourth gen cores) is somehow able to run warzone.  The i3-4340 is the minimum requirement for CoD Warzone. 


Basically warzones requires Intel fourth generation chip or higher.

i7-9xx series and the Xeon 35xx, 36xx, 55xx, and 56xx / LGA 1366 sockets slowly becoming obsolete in the high end gaming world.  My x58 gigabyte board is going to be retired.

I'm thinking about going with a Asus AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus /w a 3900X Ryzen...

Nah I can still run it on a 2600k. I guess your W3670 can't because it doesnt support AVX instruction set

It's certainly possible. There's videos of guys doing it with similar chips overclocked. Have you overclocked to 4ghz yet? As long as your motherboard supports modifying the baseclock it's super easy to do on the x58 platform. Especially with your CPU decent cooling should get you 4.2ghz relatively easy. 


If you did do an upgrade that GTX 970 would be a bottleneck. For you any upgrade is gonna involve a new Motherboard, ram, CPU, and GPU at the minimum. 


"Minimum requirements" for games are arbritary bull**** It also says you can play on a FX 6300... That CPU is worse than a i7 920 even... At stock. So yeah, long story short when you have a CPU that old minimum requirements are often made up lies.

Chips run hot, and I think it has to do with not having AVX.  I don't really wanna push it since it shouldn't matter if it's 3.8 or 4 ghz.
I had a corsair H75 and MasterAir MA610P but the system just runs to hot for my liking.  


I'm thinking about doing a new rig sometime this month.  Asus AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus /w a 3900X Ryzen…  Maybe a 5700XT Graphics,  DDR4 memory
