Go for a better motherboard from the X series of you desire to overclock that 3700x also faster ram 3600mhz should work fine rest looks pretty good

lol, you can oc on a b series with amd.

I would go for a Strix b550-f Gaming. That memory is fine, though if you are ok with non icue ram, I would get some 3600mhz cl16.

But the X series is much more reliable tbh and you can push to higher clockspeeds

this comes into effect when you go to the 105w cpus, where oced thay can pull over 150w, but on the 65w ones, you dont see much improvement.

really depends on the VRMs, the Tomahawk can even push a decent overclock on a 3900X so it's pretty capable of maxing out an 8 core CPU. However a B550 or X570 board would be preferable for faster ram speeds due to better trace quality.

 

 

@Okrap try this. Similarly fast and cheaper SSD, newer motherboard for some improved ram speed support, and some extra spending on the PSU. Yes, 850 watts is technically more than you need, but these 30 series cards are particularly brutal on the PSU and there is a list of "known good" PSUs for the new cards, better safe than sorry.

 

I also highly recommend a Ryzen 5 5600X when it comes out, instead of this Ryzen 7. Better single threaded speeds for gaming performance and Photoshop.

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

The CPU is cheaper but better? And do you think I'll have a hard time getting it on release date?

 

Thanks for the feedback

only a little cheaper, but yes it is meant to be improved for gaming by quite a lot. we will see when the reviews are released.

yes, but after a couple weeks it will hopefully be a little more available. Although, if the 3700X will suit your needs, it will likely become a little cheaper after the new Ryzen processors come out, so worth considering when the time comes.
