The AMD Ryzen 9 3900X and RX 5700 XT have performance that’s really hard to beat from a value perspective. After a ton of time testing and running benchmarks, it was time to have fun with an X570 gaming PC build. Honestly, there were some issues which needed troubleshooting but in the end, we were super happy with the result. Add a bit of 3900X overclocking into it and….this is one of our favorite builds yet in 2019!

  1. Can you build a PC with these specs please
    Ryzen 9 3900x
    Asus rog 2080 GPU (Not 2080 Ti)
    Asus rog crosshair hero 7 wi fi
    16 gigs of ram
    2TB SSD

    Curious to see the benchmarks for this combination.

  2. Wait, you mentioned at the start of the video that you didn’t post your other AMD 3000 review because you were having issues. Isn’t that the point of a review? Do you only like to provide positive reviews?

  3. Nice looking build! Am I the only one who thinks it's weird to compare the Ryzen 3900X with the i7 8700k instead of the i9 9900k? They are the most equal priced consumer grade processors…

  4. So… I noticed that the performance gain from OCing this new Ryzens (SO FAR, AT LEAST) is not really what we know from older Ryzens or Intel CPUs. You said, tho, that single-core scores went up, while other scores went down. Does that means that, overall, OCing Zen2 could be only worth for those single core workflows? Because so far, none of the OCing benchmarks I've seen show a big advantage. Again, this may be due the maturity of the chipset, just seems that keeping Ryzen 3 stock will be the way to go.

  5. Plugging a 3.0 riser cable into 4.0 pci port
    Mounting gpu intake close to side panel
    Setting up case for guaranteed negative pressure under cpu load
    Things that make me go hmm…

  6. I would have opted for the silver Trident Z Royal RGB CL16 3600Mhz sdram and mounted the video card horizontily to bypass the riser card issue. Overall, it is a nice build, I prefer small form factor systems that would go in a NCase M1 and currently gigabyte's the only company to have a x570 itx board available.

  7. I really want to get the 12 core CPU but would it work with my Ryzen B450 MSI Motherboard? I am not gonna overclock and only have a low profile cooler but I plan to upgrade it to the Noctua AM4 low profile one.

  8. Comparing a 3900x to a 8700k makes this video sound like its sponsored by AMD.. A 9900k is 40% faster in multi core then a 8700k so why would you take the top amd and compare it with a non comparable intel cpu.

  9. I have the fractal meshify s2 and I hate unremovable PSU shroud. Imagine you want to replace the cables or adding another cable for a new hardware, it's bad because you you have to remove the PSU. My previous case hadn't a PSU shroud and it was very easy to replace cable or doing some changes.

  10. I'm excited for AIB navi cards, I'm sure the much better cooling will do those cards a solid for overclocking without hitting 80C on a blower. Much quieter I imagine too.

  11. I'm a little surprised you didn't compare it to the 9900K, since they're at the same price point, you went to an older gen intel cpu. That doesn't show a lot of confidence in the AMD part, unless you didn't have a 9900k to compare it with. That video editing issue is a bit of deal-breaker for me. Must be a driver issue-hopefully it can be corrected but right now the 9900k or 9700k seems like the better purchase and I did want to back AMD, but not if it is a drastically worse experience. I do like the extra cores and newer platform and wanted to go with the 3900x. If they fix that video issue then it should be fine.

  12. I have the b450 Steel Legend for a white AMD build and it looks great. Plan on getthing the x570 version down the line after i upgrade some other stuff. Looks great though!! Let us know how that AIO does cuz reviews…. Arent great lol
