    Herkul reacted to Morgan MLGman in Is MSI MPG B550 Gaming Carbon WiFi a good motherboard for 5900x?   
    They're similar, but the B550 Gaming E is a better choice IMO. They're both very similar boards, but the ASUS one has POST Code screen for easy troubleshooting which can be very useful. It has a better PCIE slot layout too.

    I also prefer ASUS BIOS to MSI.

    I'd go with one of the better units on this list
     
    DRP4 should be from everything I've read - it looks like a good cooler as well, just make sure the case and the memory will fit it

    I don't know much about those adapters, so yeah definitely do your homework on those if this is a feature you need.

    It's high quality, feels pretty solid. I have two of them, got on sale.
     
    Also fits huge air coolers if that's your thing.
     
    Front panel design is not as good on airflow as the newer 4000D or 5000D airflow, and probably not as good as the Phanteks P400a/500a.

    Also a little weirdly designed from a cosmetic stance.
     
    But I have no complaints.

    Note: Corsair 4000D Airflow ATX Mid Tower Case has a front panel USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C port that can connect to the MSI MPG X570 GAMING PRO CARBON WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard USB 3.2 Gen 1 header. A separate USB 3.2 Gen 1 to USB 3.2 Gen 2 header adapter will be required. Agghhhh!!! No idea what kind of adapter.

    You shouldve asked this in your original PC thread by quoting someone, but i can give out one. Some recommendations in that price bracket:
    1. 4000D Airflow
    2. TD500 Mesh
    3. Used HAF H500P Mesh
    4. Lian Li PC-O11D
    5. Phanteks Eclipse P300A Mesh

    True, but as someone who has this case, I'd say you probably don't want to do that. It requires dipping into the PSU shroud, and makes the inside look ugly, as you'll be able to see the cables in the bottom. You can get by with a 280.

    I can recommend the Arctic Liquid Freezer II. Chose the size that fits your case. The 280mm and the 360mm are particularly good.

    Disregard then. PCPP can pick scalper price and a TX850 is far cry from 300$. The alternative i mention can be used if its out of stock.

    GPU, as you cant run Ryzen based system without GPUs, except in its G Series.
     
    Overall very solid besides the overpriced 850W PSU. I would switch one to something like Seasonic Focus GX-850 or Superflower Leadex Gold 850W.

    The 5800X has a single die so it cannot dissipate heat compared to the 5900X that he recommends. The 5900X has two separate dies so this helps.
     
    Everyone complains about power consumption and heat but the 10850K is not bad at all. With an AIO, no worries about thermal throttling. Here is one running fully loaded at a steady 4900 MHz on all cores. At a maximum temperature of 70°C, it is not bad at all. It is unlocked so it is easy to bump it up to 5000 MHz all core and it will still be under 80°C in Cinebench.

    Already did. Just swap motherboard, CPU and SSD with the list you posted to the ones I posted. Or if you want to stay away from MSI, we can find other options and brands 😉
    The ASUS Prime Z590, is there any particular reason you picked that board? Color scheme, USB slots, brand?

    If 5800x makes more sense for you, here's the full ATX version of the motherboard I use. Tier S- VRMs, holds up to the 5800x just fine. People either love or hate on MSI. I went with it because it was the only mini ITX that fit my needs. The board is also 70 Euro cheaper than the ASUS Intel board. The 5800x is 30 Euro more than the 10850k, so motherboard and CPU are 40 E cheaper.

    Like @Mister Woofsaid, if you went with the AMD you could get PCIE 4.0 If you wanted to stay with a 1tb Samsung, the 980 Pro is PCIE 4.0 for 60 Euro more than the 970 plus. So for changing those three parts, you're 20 Euro more on PCIE 4.0.

    looks like a solid spec, can't find much really to critique. I'd suggest maybe going with more storage, 1TB goes fast. Unless you already have another storage solution for video and whatnot?

    Userbenchmark is heavily anti AMD. A week ago, the 9300kf was 2% better than the 5950x. Even now the 5950x is 13% better than the 9300kf. Then there's this one. i3-10100 is apparently 2% better all around than the 3990x threadripper.
    11th gen is a joke. I more or less got started on the 5800X because according to Puget Systems, it is viable for your use case, and tends to actually be in stock compared to the 5900x.
    The other thing to think about with the 5800x being 60 USD more is motherboard cost. Intel motherboards for what ever reason seem to be more expensive. 
     
    That being said, I don't think either the 5800x or the 10850k will let you down.
    I haven't been out spoken about it. This is my first trip with AMD. That's been my biggest complaint so far, but no one really talks about it so it never comes up. I think we're fully at a spot where the tables have turned. AMD used to be the cheaper "getting into my first gaming pc or workstation" budget CPU. You plug it in, it works. Intel was "Yeah, but look at what we can do. Try to keep up." I think the jump that AMD has had with Zen 3 is truly impressive. That said, I feel like it was "Here's what we can make CPUs do. Good luck Intel.  Wait, we have to make it compatible with all this stuff?" If that makes any sense. It feels like the QC just isn't quite there yet. 
    11th gen really solidified that. Yes, it doesn't make sense over 10th gen or Zen 3. However, what's the likelihood that you'll throw the 11700k or any other 11th gen into a motherboard and it just.....works..
    What I've read is very similar to that. Infinity Fabric(FLCK) runs at 1800 mhz, so DDR 3600 is a straight 1:1 ratio of the IF. However, above 1800mhz or DDR 3600 it goes into a 2:1 mode. So it's actually more "difficult" for the memory controller.

    I have some friends on other forums who have spent DAYS trying to get FLCK to 1900mhz or even 2000mhz so they don't have to decouple the frequency on their DDR4000 memory, which they finally achieve, only to find the newest BIOS update that was supposed to make memory compatibility BETTER resulted in them being unable to hold their previously stable 1900/2000mhz FLCKs. Then, when they try to go back to the previous version, it's impossible or they aren't able to reproduce their old settings. So their expensive 4000mhz kits end up having to run at 3800/3600 anyway and dropping down to 1900/1800mhz FLCK.
     
    Me? Took about 5 minutes to get DDR4 4000 to work....with 4 DIMMS.

    450 cheaper wow! You could take the money you save and buy a sweet board and kick axe ram. If I was in the market, or wanted one I would for sure just get it. Indulge. Ifs a fucking beast lol. But to be fair.. the power of AMD is compelling. Such an awkward time to be in the market right now. But if I were you I would make your choice soon before prices go right up on the little things you need. I see my 3200C14 Royals are in stock for what I paid.. I almost want to get another pair.. ffs.
