  1. I have the sx 8200 pro, I really enjoy mine.  Really as long as it is pci gen3 4x nvme or up you will not be able to tell any of them apart.  Gen4 is great because the read goes up, which to me is more important.  But the price/performance is key too.  They all write about the same unless there is really large files... I want the read speed after write is done.   Below is a decent list:

  2. Which docking station you use?  I went all nvme/ssd's in my current rig but have been looking for external enclosures for my sata 3.5" 2tb drives (backups, video and photos).... theres lots out there and I have been trying to decide but these things (docks/enclosures) have limited reviews...  I like the docking station idea so I can flop them in and out.   I did see some with 2 slot docks built-in that looks like for replication.   Undecided still 😕    Dont mean to hijack but kinda on subject as op might need a new dock or enclosure. 


  3. That's got to be a wonder experience over the lappy!  The gpu should do fine at 1080p for most things and like you said you can upgrade in the future when needed, or overclock it when you need to (or now for the fun of it ) 🙂    WoT should run in the 70~80fps range I would think at ultra.   The 2600 is a great chip, the price is hard to beat.  Probably fine but you might want to check the ram is running at the bandwidth in the bios and set it to docp (xmp).   If it wont take 3200, you should be able to run it at 2933.   I mention as I had issue with running over 2933mhz.   It might do the 3 post boot when you first set it, if it is not already. 

     

    Enjoy!

  4. If the fans are still connected the headers, you can unplug them to see if the sound and wifi come back, possibly they are shorting something somehow?  Maybe even just unplug everything attached to sound card first and reboot, check if wifi is good after reboot... if no wifi then remove sound card, check if wifi is good... If not, remove wifi card and put sound card back in, see if sound card is good.  This way you can see which one is causing the problem, if it is that.  With the fan headers going out too, I wonder if the board is going.  Almost sounds like a short though, like something is touching maybe from the case... maybe that coolant is running on the backside of the mb somewhere?   But yea your plan looks good.

  5. When I was building my rig, I went with 4x dimms and a 3600x to try 4x dimms as I always do 2x8gb... It was that or 3700x with 2x dimms to keep in my budget.   I remember  Gamers Nexus mentioning some advantages with 4x but really from my old rig to this one, it feels the same when gaming.  Possibly, since I have 4x dimms is why I cant go above 3733 as the article mentions that 3600mhz could be stressful on the controller.   Really curious if 4x dual rank sticks are any different from 4x single rank dimms.  


  6. Thx!  So, this is stock setting on everything with all my crap running in the background:

    If I bump it up to 3733mhz on the ram/infinity I can get down to 68ns.  I added a DIMM cooler but didn't help with OC so far.  


  7. For the ram, I would try keeping the timings you have currently that docp/xmp has set... Then move the infinity and ram bandwidth up at the same time.  In asus bios for infinity, divide ram bandwidth by 2, so if you set you ram to 3400, set infinity to 1700.  Do tests and then try 3600 ram and 1800 infinity.  I'd keep going till it won't post, then tighten timings.  Cpu-z will show them matched for ram/infinity under memory tab.  There's benefits for raising the ram and infinity with most being able to run the infinity to at least 3600/1800, but you might have to loosen the ram timings as you raise bandwidth.   The infinity limit is 1900 for most all chips and the 2 I have tried could "only" go to 3733/1867.  You might want to set you ram boot voltage on your ram to what you have your ram voltage.  Also, might need to raise ram voltage as you move up.  I'm not sure the safe limits if your is micron chips but usually 1.45v should be safe from default of 1.35v.

     

    Pbo only gives like 25-75mhz more even with water for all core stress tests.  But then you use much more power. 

     

    AMD sees more from ram/infinity.

  8. You can use just the 8pin, the 4pin is used in extreme OC cases.  I cant remember which of my ryzen/mb I ran with just the single 8pin but it worked fine.  But plz double check with the vendor or maybe someone else can confirm.  I just know ran it without the extra 4pin in the past.   I did order another cable to have both connected to try to see if it would help OC... But ryzen works best when left alone in most cases.  Ram tweaking seems to help much more and running 1:1 ratio with the infinity/ram.

  9. You will probably have better support with a x570 board long-term.  Remember that Ryzen needs bios updates and it might be better in the long run to go x570.  If you look to upgrade later with the next Ryzen release, possibly x570 will have more features that are supported. I nearly went for a Asus crosshair hero vii x470 again but the Asus TUF x570 wifi has been great for cheaper price.  If planning to keep 3700x for 5 years then B450 or x470 could save some.   Idk if anyone can really tell the difference from a good Gen3 pci x4 nvme vs Gen4 nvme besides stats. 

     

     (I wasn't planning on using wifi/Bluetooth on my pc but it has been amazing for transferring files and other things)
