I feel your pain for the waiting. I am in the same boat as you with the Ryzen 3950X. Just waiting for it to come out, so i can replace my old I7 980X. Also because i believe intel 10000 series offering aint gonna give us any thing special as long they are on 14 NM.

Planning a very simular setup as yours.

Ryzen 9 3950X cooled by a Noctua NH-D15 AM4 version (might go for custom loop if needed, but i am not much for having water in side my pc)
ASUS X570 Crosshair VIII Hero board
G.Skill TridentZ Neo DDR4-3600 C14 32GB kit
Besides that keeps my current hardware i have now i the spec profile un til i have saved up some more.

Ad in later will be:
Samsung 980 EVO or PRO NVMe M.2 SSD i hope will be on PCIe gen 4.
RTX 3000 series card maybe RTX 3080 or 3080 TI depending on price then they come out
And some more like new PSU as my current one is over 10 years old.

Well for memory, my advice would be to go for 3600 MHz C16 as over C16 is gonna be exspensive and above 3600 MHz the infinity fabrik is not al ways stable at 1:1. Most ryzen 3000 chips seems to be fine on IF at 1800 MHz, but as you draw closer to 3800 MHz memory where the IF will run 1900 MHz more and more ryzen chips will fail that task. Not many can run fully stable at 1900 MHz. Thats why i stick to 3600 MHz and then you can al ways try to nock up memory a bit and see if the cpu IF can handle it and if not dial back again. While it would be annoying to buy 3800 Mhz memory and the cpu might not can use it any way. That is also why i stick to 3600 MHz memory and then i get the CPU try to dial in manuel 3733 MHz or 3800 MHz on the memory and fine tune timmings for that accordingly to memory clock.

Else with a RTX 2080 TI and so on looks fine. You might want a new NVMe SSD as Samsung 950 PRO is not the fastes any more, but then again is stil faster than a sata SSD. I have a samsung 950 PRO as well in my X58 system and that will not be used in my ryzen setup. That will be up to you to deside and of cause your use case.

Very nicely planned build. I would expect the D15 to handle it no problem even assuming its similar to an overclocked 9900k in terms of thermal density.
The 3900X is pretty easy to manage with a Corsair h115i Platinum.

Temps for me were about 10c higher on a the h100i platinum unless I maxed out the fans so I swapped it out.

Hoping maybe we'll seea 3950X leak prematurely on eBay
It would most likely be an ES sample if it did and I wouldn't touch one of those.

Yeah. I have my pc´s for a long time before replacing them (just look at X58 i have now) and then i so buy a new one. I always go all out on parts. I dont think so much on value but more on raw power/performance and reliability for long time use.

I also exspect the D15 to be suficiant. The noctua NH-D14 i have now, have done well together with my old I7 980X.

Jay being Jay. But it's easier to bash people for downvoting instead of actually inspecting the board you were given for review. I guess he learned his lesson.

2021 at the earliest for anything competitive (middle tier by then). Let's hope that Navi will be proven a long-lasting efficient arch until then to have competition in all segments. Or else... :banghead: for any PC gamer.

Not the best being a 4x8 GB kit for Ryzen 3000 series? been hearing that it's preferrable to run only 2x DIMMs with Ryzen 3000 series

Not really. It's running 4 ranks total. You can do it by running two dual rank modules (ie. 16gb dimm) or 4 single rank (ie. 8gb dimm) which gets you to the 4 rank ideal.

not happend here, barely can get used condition one
No idea where here is but people are selling on the more populated forums. I've seen two on H for example. We'll see more as we get closer to actual release date.

Myself, I've caught myself contemplating going for it, but then sanity kicks in and the reality is I don't need one. But I DO want one, lol.

almost 600 (or double the price for CL14) seems quite a bit for what seems not much difference in performance unless i'm wrong :-\
With Ryzen, youll want the tightest timing RAM you can get at 3200 or higher.
