Motherboard Help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking to make a pc using a Ryzen 7 3800x but I want a motherboard that can later, if I need it, be converted into a GPU mining rig. Which motherboard could provide enough ports compatible with the Ryzen 7 3800x? (I prefer ATX form)

How many gpus do you want?

 

Gpu mining seems to have pretty much died.

 

Do you have a budget?

 

Do you want to use risers?

1. I want to be able to use up to 4 GPUs 

2. I do not have a budget for the motherboard

3. Yes I would be ok with using risers.

Thanks! This is my setup so far, do you think it will work well?

  • Ps. the high watt psu is incase i do mining

Id probalby get a nvme drive, slightly faster, about the same price, so might as well.

 

Do you plan to oc your cpu? Id personally get a cheaper cooler, and just get the 3900x

Do you want to oc? Stock cooler may be ok but a bit louder, hyper 212 is a resaonble budget option, noctua nh u12s is a bit more of a premium. Of go all out and get a nh d15 or dark rock pro 4.

No I am not thinking of overclocking. Is there a decent priced water cooler?

If your not going to overclock, no point in a watercooling, the extra cooling won't help.

If overclocking isn't very hard for beginners, I am thinking I might try it in the future. What is the best not-so-expensive watercooler?

Id stay away from a water cooler, and get a high end air cooler instead, something like a nh d15 or a dark rock pro 4

Do you think I should get Intel or Ryzen?

What are you using the system for? You probably won't notice a big differnce between them.

Gaming, Premiere Pro 2020, After Effects 2020, etc.

Ok. Should I do the 3900x or 3950x?
