  1. I'm rocking a Ryzen 9 3900X and RTX 3070 on a 650W 80+ Bronze Corsair CX Gray PSU. CPU uses about 100W under load and the 3070 about 240W, but this is the pre-overclocked Gaming X Trio variant from MSI. You should be fine provided you have the PCIe connectors for it. What is the exact card you're buying? I would still look at a higher wattage, good quality PSU in the future though.
  2. Nah, no warranty on it. Found it at $300, didn't expect one lol. Even still, I wanted an upgrade to Ampere and, a high end RTX 3070 partner model in stock close to MSRP? Heck yeah I'm picking that up. Got a 1440p165 monitor for myself too. ASUS TUF VG27AQ. Anyway, this was definitely my last Zotac card. The prebuilt I had was a crappy HP Pavilion 580-199ng. The case was a baking oven. I took the CPU and GPU out of there and made my little brother a nice gaming rig with a CX 650 PSU in a Pure Base 500 case. Noctua coolers are great for mounting pressure and spreading pas
  3. Final update: Happy with this. Seems like touching tCWL at all kills every bit of ability to POST. Is tRDRDSC and under important at all?
  4. Update, testing for stability now: Another update: Seems like messing with either tCWL, tRDWR and tWRRD makes my system unable to POST. Might just ignore these. Am I fine to ignore these considering everything else I've done?
  5. First off, specs: Board: ROG Strix B550-F CPU: Ryzen 9 3900X RAM: 4x 8GB G.Skill Trident Z Neo 3600 CL16-16-16-36 1.35v (F4-3600C16Q-32GTZN) B-Die So just got done with quite the RAM tightening session today. After a bit of tinkering (and some CMOS resets), I found that the current timings are stable: Compared to the original timings I had: Geardown cannot be disabled without some miracle, I'm done trying to get GDM off and 1T to be stable. However I have a question about these timings:
  6. im aware but it still ticks me when results are different than previous
  7. Passmark and Userbenchmark results being worse than my previous ones, and me not realizing the last time I ran them was when I was overclocked. My GPU is performing as it should in virtually every game, if not better. Thanks for your answers
  8. Okay nevermind I'm just dumb and didnt realize the framerate values are almost the same. In the "Before" one, I was overclocked. On the "After" one, I wasn't. Ignore that lol. So the performance should be fine?

  10. Recently went from 2 sticks of Ripjaws V 3600 16-19-19-39 to 4 sticks of Trident Z Neo 3600 16-16-16-36, each 8 GB for a total of 32 GB. I have a Ryzen 9 3900X and ROG Strix B550-F. Does having 4 sticks instead of two hurt performance a lot on Ryzen? I wanted to fill all slots since it was bothering me. The IF is running 1:1 at 1800, timings are as advertised, voltage 1.35v. Everything works fine. But I'm not sure about the performance difference.
  11. You sir were correct on both. The RAM worked first try, am using it right now. It is indeed B-die:
  12. Thank you for your answer. I already have the Strix board and it's the best board I ever owned, so I can't really replace it. If I have to set my timings manually, so be it. I do hope it's going to be plug and play, as you said. I also don't want to OC my IF past 1800 and RAM past 3600, so is 3600 16-16-16-36 @ 1800 IF clock good enough for my 3900X? That big of a difference between IF 1800 and 1900? I had only bad experiences with RAM OCs, and they're not my forte, so I'd rather not do it.
  13. I should also mention I am currently using 2x 16GB Ripjaws V 3600 16-19-19-39. Stock voltages, XMP on. That's it. Stable. Why am I getting essentially the same thing but with two more sticks and better timings? Don't worry about it. Anyway, yeah, this kit runs fine. I'm just not sure how it's gonna deal with 4 sticks instead of 2 and tighter timings.
