Ryzen 5 3600 MoBo Combo

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all,

 

I suspect to some this may be a silly question but I just wanted to clarify...

 

I am looking to build a mATX size build for my rather shallow server rack and have come up with what I think to be an ideal CPU/Motherboard combo but i have been reading online that some motherboards need a bios update to use newer Ryzen CPU's and to do that update you need an older Ryzen CPU to boot and perform the update. I have no access to an old CPU to do this so I wanted to ask if these would work together out of the box?

All MSI motherboards with the word MAX in the name are guaranteed to ship with an updated BIOS for third gen Ryzen.


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 - Hyper 212 Black (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)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
