    Cheers - swapped round today, fans sound like they're ramping to higher RPM but overall I think around 10c cooler on both gpu and cpu!

    Point here that if you're going for a ryzen 5000 series, you should be aiming for 3200Mhz ram as the sweet spot.
     
    The 6800XT is on par with the 3080, but if you're budget constrained, you can look at the 6800 instead (although imo for like $70 more - i'd just try and squeeze the upgrade).
     
    Worth noting that AMD say that when a ryzen 5000 series is paired with a 6000 series gpu, they have performance boosts.
     
    If going ryzen 5000 series you're better off with a B550 board - basically the same price (you may need to update BIOS to ensure compatibility with ryzen 5000 series

    I can't remember where exactly, might even have been Bitwit who said it. But just google "AMD AM5" and a whole raft on links come up showing it, and that zen4 will likely be AM5.

    I forgot to mention, I think AMD only promised to stick to AM4 socket for 5 years, and this was the 5th year, so they are potentially moving to AM5 next year, with DDR5 RAM. Although none of this has been confirmed.

    Cheers will take a look.
     
    Assuming brand doesn't matter, as long as I stick to 3600Mhz and CL 16? (Don't want higher than 16 I'm assuming for gaming).
