Hey Mark. Good seeing you as well. Thanks for the info. I'll likely wait til July and see what shakes out then.
And thanks Fanatical Meat for the info. It's funny you mention the FX days. That was primarily the reason I asked about AMD reliability/compatibility. Good to hear all seems to be well. I'm actually looking forward to my next rig. I really wasn't juiced moving to this 7600K when I did.
yup that’s exactly what I did before my amd build. I swore I wouldn’t buy amd again post my disastrous fx6300 with not one, not two, not three but four motherboard failures within 2 years.
I was going to go intel but now intel has regular security holes that need to be patched and each patch slows them down a little bit. No end in sight for the patches either.

I just recently built my new Ryzen system (see sig). I had initially went to get a MSI B450 Tomahawk Max after doing some research on it, but the Microcenter salesman convinced me to get the Asus Prime X470 Pro. I quickly read the reviews online on my phone and saw that there were numerous issues with the Asus board, but I went against by judgement and bought the Asus anyway because it was an X470 and it happened to be cheaper than the MSI B450. The Asus board was nothing but issues and ended up frying my CPU. I had to replace my 3700X and returned the Asus for the MSI I was originally going to get in the first place. Smooth sailing from there.

I hope it was not too much of a hassle. I also got the Tomahawk for my secondary PC and while the BIOS is basic it works. MSi has the best B450 boards and I am an ASUS guy.

I remember building AMD Althon systems back in the day and then my network administrator friend who was not the neophyte i was finally built an AMD Althon but used that POS Soyo Dragon motherboard and never got it to run stable.

Just wrapped up my build today
Thermaltake S300 case (80 bucks)
3900x
Gigabyte Aorus Elite x570
32gb ram
Seaonic focus 650
Random SSD's I had lying around (860evo and a sandisk ultra.)

Thought I'd give the stock cooler a try to give it a fair shake.

Idle, and I use that term loosely with the bouncing around this chip does is around 30c to 42c. Blender benchmark had it hovering in the 70's and briefly hit 80, other wise under real world load it looks to be more lot to mid 60's.
Chipset seems to enjoy 56c-57c. I have yet to see it leave that 55c-60c area
Other temps tend to be in the 20's and 30s (VRM mos, system etc etc)
This is all on air with a single 140mm up front, a 120mm out back and big old 200mm up top. low to mid rpms.

Coming from my old 2700K which was whisper quiet no matter what the load was (25c idle and under load barely squeaked in the 50's - Room@18C). Used a simple CM212 plus with a pair of scythe silent fans from ages ago.

Going from that to the Wraith sucks. Sucks pretty bad. Spent some time to day fiddling with fan profiles but as soon as a load justifies its like someone is running a vacuum. Wraith cooler is doing its job and effectively keeping the proc at reasonable temps but the noise output of this thing is unacceptable to me.

No surprises during setup of the gigabyte other than instant regret loading up there app center crap and getting hit with Norton and f'n toolbars. Minor surprise seeing the old school caps on the audio chip. Otherwise, chipset fan doesn't even come on until it hits 60+. General layout is fine. Would have liked to see a fan header closer to the front of the board.

Until I nab a new cooler, I'm going to stick with the old 2700K for general use.

You tried any undervolting yet? For my 24/7 settings, I run everything default, but I have LLC set to the lowest possible setting, and I use a negative voltage offset. Your UEFI should be the same as mine since we're both on Aorus boards. Give it a try.

PRO tip -> despite what they say in site, for example for BIOS flashing from windows, the crap center is not required, just install the @Bios tool.
Undervolting does indeed work, but You need to test both ST and MT performance. CB20 is good for MT, but takes too long for ST, so use CPU-Z test to get a quick estimate and see if there is no problems with ST performance.
I'd try each offset from -0.025 to -0.1V to see if some are decent.

But honestly this is $$$ problem - i can personally recommend Dark ROCK PRO 4, it is pricey, but easy to install on AM4. Aside from huge size and DRAM height limitations it is incredibly silent and performant.
And people from this forum will recommend myriad of water coolers, some nearly as cheap as 212.

I used SuperPi 1.5 mod XS since a run takes less than ten seconds at 1M, and clockspeed makes a big difference in performance. I admit my undervolt does cost me a little max ST speed (I think my max boost clock is 4525 MHz or 4550 MHz, which you never get except in very narrow use cases anyway). My MT scores went up drastically, and lightly-threaded applications stayed the same.

I haven't tried undervolting. I'll read up on it. Thanks.

When I did my search for a case, I fortunately kept the DRP4 and Noctua Dseries in mind.
I My main concern with DRP4 is ram clearance. While i did select low height modules to insure clearance isn't a factor I did bump into one post about someone with a issue of having the heat pipes of the DRP4 resting against one of the modules when first slot is populated. I have to revisit my search history to see the details of that persons config or if they simply screwed up.
DRP4 is definitely on my radar.
With the DRP4, are you stuck using be quiet's ecosystem of fans or are the fans on that cooler using standard mount points?

The other candidate is the Noctua D15S

Scythe Fuma 2 is now on the radar. It's going to take forever to make a decision.

Either way, temps are low and another round of benching and gaming and things are pretty good. Got the fan profiles set so the Wraith is pissing me off a little bit less while I take forever picking a CPU cooler.

I used a Gammaxx 400 on a cheap B350 board for testing the 3900x before I put it in the x570 board, and that cooler worked well.

I decided upon a Scythe Grand Kama Cross 3 Rev.B once it was in the x570, and am happy with it. Is a nice cooler for ~$30.

Ended up pulling the trigger on the Fuma 2.
In it's favor were reported quietness and being competitive with the DRP2 and Noctua's. Cheaper and finally it's a bit more friendly to other cases and board layouts. If I ditch this 3900x rig, I can always move the cooler over to a mATX setup.
Worse case scenario is that it sucks and I'll attach it one of the Raspberry pi 4 lying around the house for poops and giggles.

Seeing a Scythe cooler on a Pi4 would be amazing. Pics or it didn't happen.
I was blown away by how good a Tisis cooler passively cooled a i5 8400t. I couldn't get the chip to break 60cel under prime95. This 7700k on the other hand under a 212 likes to hit 70s. Stock no oc at the moment.

I've posted this as a question before I saw this thread, so apologies for the duplication, maybe you guys can assist?

  1. My rig:

    New components:

    3900X @4.35ghz all core OC 1.27v
    Asus X570 Crosshair Hero VIII (WiFi)
    4x 8gb Patriot Viper Steel 3600mhz C17 (now tweaked but would appreciate any additional advice)
    Arctic liquid freezer II 360
    1TB NVME Boot drive Drive
    2TB Patriot SATA3 SSD

    Clean Win10 install

    Existing parts - with Define S case, EVGA Silver 850w psu, MSI RTX2070S

    Because I created the OC using the ram preset timings and various other auto overclock features before optimised, I appear to of (probably via any one of the auto options I chose at the start) disabled cool'n'quiet, if I reset to defaults it works so I know I am okay in Windows.

    I much prefer the downclocking while idle option (low power modes are helpful) so I am keen to get this operational again (even if I sacrifice the all core OC a bit).

    My issue is that I've no idea why it isn't working? I think I've enabled it in the BIOS but I've no idea what setting I've missed that makes it work (again knowing it works in default stock, means it's not a windows power profile issue AFAIK of course).

    Any/all help greatly received.

    My current bios as per below

I guess I think that because the clocks or volts do not change, I am on constant 4.35ghz, load or idle.

Just to add on this, if I load up the profile defaults in the UEFI, save and boot up to Windows and run some tests - single core cinebench the cpu voltages leap to about 1.46v, if I run handbrake, voltages are quite high on all core loads of about 4.1ghz - taking into consideration that I need 1,28v for 4.35ghz all core clock (as per above settings in my earlier post) it worried me to see this.

Is that normal behaviour at stock for cpu voltages to leap beyond 1.45v?

If I wanted to leave the profile (except for ram timings and FCLK) at stock, is there a way I can cap the cpu voltage?

I have my 3600 set to 1.375v and run it in override. It's locked to 4.2ghz 24x7. The CPU will not do 4.3ghz in a bench even with 1.4v. It will boot but cannot make it through any benches without crashing. The 3900x is a gravy chip that should be able to either push much higher clocks @ low voltage or high clocks with higher voltage.

As I have said based on AMD strategy. The 3600 is the worst silicon so they throw high voltage at the chips regardless of the binning. It works well. The high end chips are top tier so they should do much better with mhz as well as low voltage.

All done in uefi - Ryzen master was far too overwhelming, I didn't want to touch it.
That probably explains it. I would recommend using Ryzen Master. Even my static overclocks implemented using that tool permit downclocking and reduction of voltage during periods of idle.

Okay, I'll have a look into that, can you recommend a specific guide, I googled and found there's about but just wondered if there's one in particular the majority prefer?

Not really. It's a fairly easy tool once you get into it. Main thing is, when you first try it out, make sure you have your OS and chipset drivers up to date before you install, and don't use it to change any memory settings unless you really want to use that feature.

Use CPU-z to monitor your voltage during stress testing/benchmarks.
