hi need help. wanna ask whats the best motherboard for non oc ryzen 5 2600?

Grab something like a MSI/ASRock (avoid both ASUS and Gigabyte) B450, according to Hardware Unboxed:



Might be useful to have some VRM cooling too (use exhaust fans on the top of the case, along with the rear end) to keep the VRMs cool icon_idea.gif

Something like this would do:

You can get a RTX 2060 GPU with 2.5k budget + 600 from your GTX 1060:

CPU: AMD RYZEN 5 3600 RM859.00
MOBO: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK RM465.00
RAM: G.SKill TRIDENT Z RGB (AMD) 2x8GB 3600MHZ RM549.00 (Czone)
GPU: GALAX RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6 RM1,279.00

Total: RM3,152 (E Tech PC prices)
*
I would consider dropping the RAM down to 3200, as there's not much difference moving from 3600 to 3200:

Do note the timings though icon_idea.gif

Hi please help, im in dilema choosing right RAM. Im going to build:

CPU: 3700x
Mobo: B450 Tomahawk / Steel legend

as for RAM, i saw many of you choose "TRIDENT Z RGB (AMD)", is this good? i couldn't find this one in Asrock QVL list,if i go with Steel Legend can i still use it?

alternatively, im actually eyeing on HyperX 16GB(8GBx2) 3200MHz Predator @ 433. will this good enough?

Must i buy the kit? or any 2x 8gb will works?
*
RAM QVL means that the RAMs have been tested and verified working by the board manufacturer themselves. Due to the fact that it is impossible to test every RAM kit, RAMs that are not on the QVL will work just as well, as long as it is compatible with the board. My machine uses a 3000MHz G. Skill memory that is not on the QVL and it works just fine. Even XMP works perfectly too icon_idea.gif

Viewnet does not sell second hand parts. Nvidia? GTX 1650 more expensive and less performance.
How about these?

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X - 1399
MSI B450 Tomahawk - 519
Kingston HyperX Predator 16GB DDR4-3200 Kit - 459
MSI RTX 2060 6GB Ventus XS - 1680
Adata SX8200 Pro 512GB - 339
Seagate 2TB - 249
Super Flower Leadex II Gold 750W - 499
Fractal Design Meshify C case - 435
LG 24MK430H 24" - 419

RM5998 total (C-Zone prices)

I'm not too sure about the Tomahawk board as Ryzen 3000 support has been a hit or miss on that board due to BIOS chip limitations - it might be better to check with the seller whether the MAX version is coming here icon_idea.gif

I would advise against buying RM1k rig, even with light gaming capabilities.

AMD Ryzen 3 2200G - 379
Asrock A320M-HDV R3.0 - 200
Kingston 4GB DDR4-2666 X1 - 89
WD Blue or Seagate 1TB - 169
Thermaltake Litepower 450W - 119
Tecware M2 TG M-ATX BLK - 125

RM1081 total (C-Zone prices)

I always tell my friends. No money dont buy.

If he is adventurous he can even try to build a PC using used PC parts/Aliexpress parts icon_idea.gif

Old platforms like X79/LGA1155 might be quite helpful here, however the issue is old HEDT platforms like X79 can be a power hog and requires expensive PSUs to run sweat.gif

Also the low clock speeds of HEDT CPUs at that time can significantly reduce gaming performance too icon_idea.gif

Quite a few ways that is:

1. Either add a PCI-E WiFi/Bluetooth combo card, just like llk mentioned
2. Or buy a USB WiFi adapter and a Bluetooth adapter (this will take up two USB ports, however) icon_idea.gif

X570 for sure since it's the latest gen by AMD.
*
Usually for the least amount of headaches (for older chipsets, you might have to deal with things like BIOS/AGESA updates, which can be a pain to some), go with a X570. B450/X470 boards will do just fine, but make sure to ask the seller whether the motherboard box comes with an orange Ryzen 3000 ready sticker before buying one. Boards with that sticker will mean you can just install the CPU without doing a BIOS update icon_idea.gif

Once you have your machine up and running - it's important to install the latest BIOS as BIOS updates often fix a lot of issues icon_idea.gif

Go for this: https://shopee.com.my/XPG-256GB-SX8200-PRO-...6108.2163815610

Make sure the mobo you get supports m.2.
*
M.2 is just the form factor. The M.2 slot needs to NVME capable - some M.2 slots are only SATA capable icon_idea.gif

Check with the motherboard manufacturer on which type of M.2 slot the board has icon_idea.gif

Some CPUs such as Athlon 200GE may limit the M.2 speed as well icon_idea.gif

If you don't mind not having Bluetooth - you can just not connect the USB headers icon_idea.gif

WiFi is connected via PCIE, whereas Bluetooth connectivity is dealt with a USB interface icon_idea.gif

I think this one may work:

Also you might want to look at Intel's AX200NGW PCI-E WiFi adapter if you can icon_idea.gif

Haggles for reduced prices. Got some discount for buying everything from same shop. You might wanna look around for monitor as well. I don't keep up with that.

Might be better to drop the RTX2070 Super for a RX5700XT Pulse for RM1959 - similar performance for less icon_idea.gif

Then use the remaining for a bigger SSD or a better monitor icon_idea.gif

I've been thinking of either building a rig now with an RTX 2060 or waiting for the 5700 XT.

Any idea on what the price would be for 3 fan cards like the powercolor red devil?

Not sure - might be helpful to ask lingloong hmm.gif

The ASUS Strix would be the only one that has a triple fan setup and is available here, but I don't recommend it as it is one of the worst non-reference RX5700/XT you can get and is very overpriced as well (RM2500 for a RX 5700 XT Strix) icon_idea.gif

Sapphire's Pulse might have only 2 fans but it outperforms the ASUS in terms of noise and thermals, and it is a more compact card as well icon_idea.gif

It's also worth noting that the 5700 XT can perform very close to a 2070 Super, BTW icon_idea.gif

Hi all sifu, Need more opinion on choosing my amd processor and asus motherboard.

My PC mostly for video editing and photo editing not so much on gaming. Wish to have Low power consumption and low temperature processor.

So which processor should i go for AMD ryzen 2600 or 3600?

As for motherboard i like Asus very much. So should i go for CH7 Hero or CH8 Hero ( saw both on shopee Dotatech was selling CH7 below 1k and castleit selling CH8 around 1.8k.

Or go for Asus X570-F Strix instead?
*
Pairing a CH7/CH8 with a 3600? It just looks incredibly unbalanced sweat.gif

Save that money and grab something like MSI's B450 Tomahawk instead along with a Ryzen 7 3700X icon_idea.gif

Budget for the CPU/board combo? hmm.gif
