Default AMD Build Thoughts

Looking on thoughts on a build im planning. I will be using with a Asus Gaming 1080P @ 144hz monitor and also will be streaming from this pc.

CPU: AMD RYZEN 3900X
Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero WiFi
RAM: Corsair 32GB
GPU: ASUS STRIX RX 5700 XT


Storage and stuff im still choosing. How will the be for a FPS and DCS World rig again for 1080P @ 144HZ

I am coming from a older GTX 1080 that is broken and out of warranty. Will the 5700 XT be a nice choice for gaming on a 1080P monitor

the 5700xt blows trade with 2070 and 1080ti, sometimes faster, sometimes slower, all within 5-15%.

with 1080p you will be cpu limited, I guess in the upper fps area.

you wouldnt be able to stream 144hz anway. lock it at 60 and it willbe buttersmooth and no dropped frames during streaming.

...looking for a link...3900x vs 9900k...and then with OBS...and the AMD PULLS MILES AWAY:

I would make sure to get some 3600MHz low latency RAMs from QVL.

Gskill has a true 3600-16-16-16-36-2T kit as a 4x8GB config. That is usually supported. I have the same one in my 7700k rig as a 16GB kit. rocksolid.

Dont go higher than 3600, rather invest in non-LED but better timings

*have you checked Gigabyte' Aorus Master yet vs. your Asus choice ?

Take the one with better RAM support. For 4 modules that should be Gigabyte's T-Topology, according to Buildzoid. ( SHOULD ! the grain of salt, as usual)

Still looking at motherboards now.

With QVL list will I be able to set my XMP or whatever AMD calls it without any problems if I pick from the QVL list. I am looking for 3000MHZ

How is the RGB Software for GSKill

Also thanks for the 5700 XT info I really worry about that and stuff and wanted to make sure its good for my gaming needs and won't have like 20 fps - 50 fps in games.

I always liked AMD and loved there RYZEN Comeback and there GPU look really good now not perfect but good.

Asus Aura, the crappiest software in the Milky Way Galaxy, has 1 useful settings, it indicates temp with LED colours.


Sadly, that causes a constant cpu usage that is way above what most tolerate, it uses more than all of the others combined which are running after reboot. It's about 2-3%, that is way too much, 8,33% is 1 core/thread ( 100:12=8.33 6c/12t ).
It also refuses to install anyone that is newer than 1 a year old. full disaster on that end.


Asus Aura has lots of negative threads in google and on rog-forum.
