A little late, but the Asus x570 WS has a plx on the chipset lanes to allow pcie 3.0x8 instead of 4.0x4 so you could run your fiber card. You still won't be able to run the hyper m.2 at 16x though,...

Did some more testing, and 3666 and 3733 were both less stable than 3800, so for my setup, it looks like it'll have to be 3600 or 3800.



For spits and giggles, I tested 1600/1800 fclk and...

Oh that's a very interesting tip - thank you very much! I didn't think that memory speed/rank could destabilize the fclk. This gives me a new angle to think from tinker with - I'll let you know how...

Gone are the days of "just keep dumping more voltage into it until it's stable", and that makes things a lot more interesting in some ways.

Issues getting 3800mhz B-Die temperature stable on Ryzen 3000

Hi All,


I've been having some fun tuning my memory, but I seem to have hit a wall. My second kit of ram came in, and I've got it tuned to 3800mhz 16-16-16-32. I'm happy with the performance...

Four sticks is just fine. The Ryzen 3000 memory controller is pretty good. Technically, 4x16 is only rated to 2667 mhz iirc, so you will at the very least be able to get that speed. But if you enable...

It's a clever idea, but I'm leery at the quality of implementation. Though I suppose a 720p screen is fine when you can only steadily output 720p.

I tried the big heatsink idea, but there doesn't...

This is mostly just my gaming/living room rig (who says a Corsair c500 can't be an HTPC?), though my games are on on other drives.

However, I have been doing more video editing/rendering lately. ...

Intel 600p or Samsung 960 evo

Looking to upgrade my boot drive, as I've got this m.2 slot looking so empty and lonely.

Where I live, the pricing of the 960s are about a full third more expensive per storage bracket. Obviously...

Good advice, all around.

I think I'm going to keep it around. I don't think I'd get that much money for it, given its age and its worth even less given its display output issues (it runs stable,...

The Celeron seems to be a bit of a better buy. It benches slightly higher, and the LGA 1150 chipset will leave a lot more room for growth than AM1 if he needs some more gumption in the future.
