There are plenty boards out and AMD has said more X3D chips are comming for AM4 & AM5 but you never know.

Plus you need to be careful searching for B550 because some takes 2xSATA away while running 2xM.2. NVME others take off the PCI-E x1/x4 slot.

If I remember correct the MSI B550 Tomahawk takes the PCI-E slots which is better for me when I need 2xM.2. NVME and 6xSATA ports only one these days doing 8xSATA ports are AsRock.

I cannot downsize on my drives they will cost a lot if need to and I am really thinking about the 5800X3D still since the AM4 option just is cheaper with more power and energy saving.
Again, PcPartPicker actually can check for this issue, if you populate the slots you need. I am not sure what country you are located in so I cannot check for you, but any decent X570 board (~250 Euros) should be able to fit your needs.

Picked this up last night and ran it for a few hours to watch stability. First thing this morning took it out and started cleaning before it turned my case into any more of a mess.

Asus GTX 1060 STRIX.jpg


There was reasonable doubts PCIe slot on a Prime mobo was up to the task of holding a card this large unassisted. Looking forwards to hard work repeatedly testing the correct height and angle to butt against card with.

I feel pcpartpicker have too many errors from time to time so I use pricerunner.

I looked at pcpartpicker listing the Asus Prime X570-Pro at Proshop for about 175euros then I click on it and it’s the Asus Prime X570-P a lower end board X570 and the Pro version is about 135euros more expensive great :banghead:

But the 6600GT is a 1.5V AGP card. It should have worked.
with or without an molex power plug maybe the slot needs to have a card that uses a molex power plug because it can't pass enough through the slot or the slot needs a damn good cleaning or it's just shagged

Crazy how a bunch of us decided to just get the 58X3D lol.. I am not selling my 5900 though.. that thing is fast as fook still.
The sudden price drop and shortage of stock got me going
Of the ~10 that had it listed, only one showed as in stock so i was meh why not


Casual gamer friend got a 144Hz 1080p display and learned his ryzen 1400 +1660 can't run 144FPS in LoL all the time so he's getting my damaged pins 2700x
What sort of price are you seeing Asus's ROG Strix X570 - F Gaming for it has everything you're wanting in an AM4 mobo
Eyyyy, that's my board!
It's perfectly fine except replace the shitty thermal pad under the chipset fan.

Damn I hate having a ichy tricker finger I really want this but hate at the same time to buy into a dead platform because there are not a good B550/X570 board for sale with at least 2xM.2., 6xSATA ports with 1xInternal USB-C on same for a good prices since the AM5 system is hella expensive :banghead:
Even a mid end board like like this Asus TUF gaming X570 Plus (Wi-Fi) has all that connectivity you desire. Are you getting sick of the socket 1200 platform you have in your system specs already?

Just ordered a new radiator for the watercooling loop in my computer. Plus a leak tester and a vertical GPU bracket. Which means it is about time for another teardown and rebuild in a few weeks time.

Well I have one friend of mine having this board twice before the computer store found the problem that I said after 5mins of testing it was the mem-controller that had an issue on his AMD Ryzen 9 5950X even they stress tested it for 12hours when he received the computer all memory frequency over 2933 MT/s would lead to BSOD I told him it's properly the mem-controller because it happened even with 1 stick of memory and sure I was right :D

I have something good coming maybe thursday this week I got a really good price now I just need to pickup a 3D cpu....

I am tired of Gigabyte's memory wise ass answers when there is a problem with memory that's supported and not support when they behave the same....

Without LED on, I can see the keys easily enough, but with RGB/LED enabled, it becomes a challenge. I look at it as a challenge to myself to master typing without looking at the keys......too much. I still look at the keys, but am trying to type without glancing down too much.

The sudden price drop and shortage of stock got me going
Of the ~10 that had it listed, only one showed as in stock so i was meh why not


Casual gamer friend got a 144Hz 1080p display and learned his ryzen 1400 +1660 can't run 144FPS in LoL all the time so he's getting my damaged pins 2700x

Eyyyy, that's my board!
It's perfectly fine except replace the shitty thermal pad under the chipset fan.
This! I have been contemplating what to do with the upcoming releases vs my current system. I was on Newegg the other day and saw AM4 CPUs reduced in price. I saw the 5800X3D for $499 and suddenly the path was open. This will be my new CPU for the time being. I will probably give myself whatever RDNA3 card I decide to buy for Christmas and when the 3D chips launch I will get one for my Birthday. The only boards that I am interested in for AM5 are $700 to $900 so that is a hard no to then spend a further up to $1100 for a CPU and RAM. As I have stated before I would put my MSI X570S Ace Max up against any AM5 board. I love the fact that the 3rd PCIe 16 slot is wired x8. By the time the AM5 3D chips launch board prices should subside and AGESA should be much more stable.

You are SOOO not alone there. To be fair, they are getting better just not very quickly.
I mean, they install SSD RGB software with the tool that firmware flashes my gigabyte monitor
Giga/Aorus are not a brand with good tech support, or any support at all.

Got this from EVGA B-stock. One short game test and I already like it better than my 3050.
Unless you've got DLSS, the 1070ti does outperform a 3050
Bit craycray there.
