@Rossix71 - I to love all my Ryzen CPUs, aside from a few running warmer than I'd like even at stock (more down to the cooler and location of them I think) I can't really fault them.. They don't crunch 24/7, but around 10 hours a day.. Without solar panels here, I'd never be able to afford to run the kit that I run here for WCG and FAH and Rosetta. I'd be broke within a few months!

That said the star of all of that is the 3900X, runs cool considering it's under air and still peaks at a good speed. Even whilst crunching and gaming across triple panels, this thing just keeps on going :) My only regret is that I never went with the 3950X instead if I'm honest..

Thanks guys for your input. I know this for sure the next builds I do will be all AMD and slowly phase out my 8 year old I7s. That 3600 looks a good candidate for the replacement lol...

Sounds like a good call. My old 1600 that just retired put out an average of about 7,300-7,500 ppd, which wasn't too bad. Can only think that the 3600 would see a nice little boost from that.

Anybody running a 3600 or 3600x?

Looks like a hurricane is coming. I may go offline during that time, especially since there will be some family with us. Don't be surprised if my output drops off.

As long as we don't lose power, I'll strike it back up after the storm has passed.

Stay safe, don't worry a thing about crunching!!

Got another 3900x coming this week. Got a pretty good deal on a used one. Also got a good deal on a Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra and a Optimus water block. This will be the first time using a Gigabyte motherboard...

Curious to see how that block does for you. Everyone seems to think it's the greatest ever, but I'm skeptical. Way too much $$$ for a few degrees difference.

I have the Alphacool XPX Aurora. It performs well, looks good, and is about $50 less.

I am curious as well. Sadly I will only have it connected to a EK CoolStream PE 240 and not a 360. The second one I had wasn't stored right and became pretty gunked up. Tried to get it cleaned out, but I eventually just tossed it instead of worrying about it in a loop.
We will see how well the 240 rad cools this CPU compared to my other one...

Just waiting on 2 Fans and MB, then it's build time. Hopefully they will arrive late next week. I will post pictures of the build when it's all coming together.

I'm excited to see how well the 3700x, 65W, does versus the 2700's, 65W that I have now!

Plus, building out a new computer, with led lights, ram, heatsink and the NZXT H510, is fun!! Building my 2700's, one in a Seasonic, the other in the H510...
The NZXT case is awesome. The Seasonic is a good case but, doesn't compare.

I do like the, Seasonic KL06, inverted MB and the reverse case layout. Also, it has a MB tray that is removable. So, good case but not as cable friendly and has a plastic window. I like it but, the H510 wins.

I decommissioning my 2700Xs partly due to the summer heat, party due to the poor performance, even my 12 year old Intel at lower speed does better on OPN. MIP has been out for long due to the huge memory use. Well winter will return, just hope that job will as well.

Anyone remember the Thermaltake Big Typhoon? I wonder how well it would do at cooling a Ryzen chip like the 3700x. From what I can tell, simply ensuring the chips stay cool is the best way to get all the performance out of them.

I think the stock amd cooler should be a little better than the tt Big typhoon .. especially with the TDPs of Ryzens now.

But for what its worth the hyper 212 seems decent enough even though its an older cooler.

Yes indeed, those numbers are awesome. I'm quite shocked how much that cpu can output considering my 1600x was waaay lower, as in 50% of that ppd. Thank you for finding and sharing.

@hat , I love "C" coolers, or at least the idea, and I have a Kabuto 3 on my 1700. But I will be honest and tell you that it doesn't do as good of a job as the Fuma RevB that it replaced. IIRC, it's about 5 degrees warmer. As far as I can tell, none of the "C" coolers match the tower coolers, and I've had a few. Absolutely love the idea for a system running 24/7 getting that additional airflow across the VRMs.

Got the motherboard, CPU and some water cooling stuff so I switched out the E5-2683 v3 cruncher with the new setup.

Old cruncher:
20200807_214434 (2).jpg


New cruncher:
20200809_014609 (3).jpg


Sadly though I am not happy. This is the first (and last) Gigabyte motherboard I will own. I should have done more research as this is the first version and has a lot of known issues. One of the most annoying is the boot up time after changing something in the BIOS. Sometimes several minutes, to never. I finally was able to update to a newer BIOS and that helped somewhat. The problem I have now is the Vcore is not matching what is in the BIOS to what is being reported in several apps I am using. I know this is a known issue, but my other 3900X setup doesn't have this issue.

Here is what the BIOS is showing me:
Bios 1.JPG


Now here is what I am seeing in Windows:
Capture001.jpg


As I like to make sure my crunchers are stable, I ordered another motherboard today. Also ordered a larger case and a 360 rad. I am going with a ASUS ROG Strix B550-F motherboard. I would like to get another Hero, just can't afford it thought.
Hopefully will have everything in a couple days so I can get this 3900X crunching!!!

Got the motherboard, CPU and some water cooling stuff so I switched out the E5-2683 v3 cruncher with the new setup.

Sadly though I am not happy. This is the first (and last) Gigabyte motherboard I will own. I should have done more research as this is the first version and has a lot of known issues. One of the most annoying is the boot up time after changing something in the BIOS. Sometimes several minutes, to never. I finally was able to update to a newer BIOS and that helped somewhat. The problem I have now is the Vcore is not matching what is in the BIOS to what is being reported in several apps I am using. I know this is a known issue, but my other 3900X setup doesn't have this issue.

Here is what the BIOS is showing me:

Now here is what I am seeing in Windows:

As I like to make sure my crunchers are stable, I ordered another motherboard today. Also ordered a larger case and a 360 rad. I am going with a ASUS ROG Strix B550-F motherboard. I would like to get another Hero, just can't afford it thought.
Hopefully will have everything in a couple days so I can get this 3900X crunching!!!
Hey @HammerON :)

Loving the systems! :D The 3900X is a beast and I'm very impressed with it :) What happened to your Hero 8 board? (Just going by your system specs...) I've not really used Gigabyte boards since X99 days really and even then the X99 SOC Champions I had weren't the best then... Shame really...

I was wondering have you tried just lowering the vcore down rather than setting the CPU ratio speed at all? I've just set mine to 1.00vcore and CoreTemp, CPU-Z and even HWMonitor still report my CPU hitting 4.20GHz which I'm not sure is 100% but it's working and my temps are generally 50C to 60C (depending on the weather and temps) under a full WCG load which I thought is bloody decent for my non mounted 14D :)

I'm really hoping I can get 5 minutes at some point soon to put together my water loop that I have ready so I can test between the air and water cooling I have just to see the temp difference and to see whether or not there's any difference with the raw speed.. It'll be interesting to see that's for sure... (Will report back to you guys :))

But those temps you have there look very impressive!! :)

I will be on a crunching hiatus from today on. Temps in my apartment went skyhigh as true summer kicked in. Its so hot I have to lock myself in bedroom with aircon full blast(my living room doesnt have one) .
I dont do well with heat either, getting headaches and all. I decided to shut off all my crunchers in hope I can keep my ambient temps lower.
Hope I can be back full on crunching soon. :lovetpu: @phill I know You are having time of Your life now lol :laugh:

It's got rather warm over here but thankfully I've got everything undervolted as much as I can to help with the temps, I hope it doesn't get any hotter!!

There's not masses of sun at the moment, but I have been rather bad and left on the 3900X and the 2700 over night just to see what sort of scores I've been able to get if they run 24/7 :) My score hasn't been too bad :) I'm wishing I could have more left on but... This ain't cheap to run 24/7 lol!!

Will miss you @Lorec , take care and try and cool down a bit :D :D

This is the second 3900X cruncher (replacing the E5-2683 cruncher). The first one is still crunching away with the Hero board.
I will mess with lowering the Vcore tonight and re-enable Core Performance Boost.
