Not 50%, but you can squeeze a 30% with a bit of luck out of that 1200. It's not hard to do 4GHz.

Installed the "lite" UEFI on my board, I love it, feels like a proper, old BIOS, fast and debloated.
Now I don't want the old interface.
not all of them will do 4ghz, my 1400 would seem stable at 3.9 but i had to drop to 3.7 to avoid random crashes and freezes that would only happen under certain heavy loads (VR games, for me)

The Ryzen 3 1200 I still have only overclocked to 3.7 GHz.

looking at boards for people to upgrade for ryzen 3000 is a nightmare, with all these problems due to too small BIOS chips...

... and all the cheaper x570 just look like shit. i swear its deliberate, i dont like the looks of any of them.

The throwback GUI MSI used I prefer over the flashy interface so the constraints of to small BIOS worked in my favor.

Screenshots of the stripped down Click BIOS interface.

i had a buyer for my x370 board and ryzen 1400, tempted to just tell him to buy a b350 and upgrade only the CPU, until the boards improve
while there are $250Au boards out, they just look terrible to me and i dont need PCI-E 4 or faster M.2 slots yet

(i'm selling the 1400, and moving my 2700x to the ITX rig)

If small bioses is a issue avoid X570 Gigabytes. They all have 128/16 bioses. They are the only X570 maker that stuck to small bios.

Sell them a PC case with solid panels. Should be looking at the screen not the inside of the PC anyways

Yeah, I might also be in the minority here; I prefer stuff that's laid out into the classic tabbed lists where I can easily find it. It's BIOS, I couldn't care less if they tried to make it look like Windows. I'm here to get stuff done and get out. I've gotten so used to the H97N-WIFI's old BIOS that I was very grateful that Gigabyte still kept the design as default view on the B350I Aorus that I built for a friend last month.

That said, it might be early, but I'm not liking the prices and availability I'm seeing for R7 3700X and X570 ITX here in Canada. $459 for the CPU and $289 for the X570 Aorus, the only X570 ITX board right now whereas there should be Asus and ASRock ones too.

Does anyone know if the X570 consumption is going to be a problem? I don't like the looks of the tiny fan on the Aorus, but if that means it won't burn up the M.2 sitting on top of it like the fan-less Strix, then I might just have to go for it......1TB TLC NVMe M.2s aren't cheap...

I'm definitely making the switch though; it's been a hell of an entertaining ride watching Intel's slide into Pentium hell again, but they'll be smoking something crazy if they think rumors for 10-core 14+++ is going to keep peoples' money with Intel.

It'll be me with the lack of RGB, and i have a very bling PC that doubles as advertising since i sell/repair/upgrade PC's as a profitable hobby

If PCIe 4.0 and faster M.2 isn't a needed thing then why not just go for a nice X470 mobo instead

Looks like I got a good one, the only thing limiting me to keep the 4GHzs is the size of the stock heatsink.

The throwback GUI MSI used I prefer over the flashy interface so the constraints of to small BIOS worked in my favor.

To add more fuel to the fire, I had problems suspending with any BIOS that wasn't the original 1.0 one thanks in part for my old GPU, this "lite" version fixed that.
